About

If you are struggling in a relationship, feeling stuck in your life, sad or lonely, worried or anxious, or caring for a chronically ill loved one, counseling can certainly help. I have seen the incredible good that therapy can do and have been present to the wonderful changes people experience when they commit to it. I work with individuals and couples on issues such as relationship struggles and life transitions. I understand the stress of caring for a very ill loved one. When you examine your inner feelings, and can talk about them, life is less overwhelming. Therapy is a powerful and rewarding journey. (Pet therapy present!)
I am attuned to helping folks reach their personal goals. Whether it involves an individual or family crisis, the loss of a loved one, pending divorce or separation, you deserve an opportunity to work through these issues in order to move on. Do it for yourself. That is self-care.
I take an honest and encouraging approach with my clients. I believe therapy should be affordable. I invite you to call for an appointment and I am happy to: 1) discuss a fee arrangement that works for both of us (including insurance); 2) explain safety measures given the Covid environment; 3) describe expectations for therapy.
