About

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the events in your life? Are the many roles that you have in life causing you to feel off balance? Have you lost interest in the things that used to bring you joy? Are you feeling powerless and unsafe in a current romantic relationship? Would you like a secure environment in which to explore your thoughts, feelings, and evaluate the choices that are before you?
My experience allows me to use a therapeutic approach that matches the needs of the client. I have years of experience assessing and treating children, adolescents, and adults. I help those in treatment examine behavioral patterns that have become dysfunctional and learn healthier patterns of thinking and behaving.
I specialize in treating those with depression/bipolar disorder, victims of domestic violence, and helping those with gay/lesbian concerns. I also work with people who are grieving/have experienced a traumatic event. I have years of experience working with children/adolescents who have emotional disorders and receive special education services.
