I enjoy working with individuals, couples and young adults who are having challenges in their lives including depression, anxiety, self esteem, indecision and relationships with themselves and others. I am interactive in my approach and feel that therapy is a "conversation with a purpose." Together we explore the barriers that are keeping you stuck and unable to move forward. Besides talking therapy I provide relaxation skills as well as ways to change your long standing negative beliefs so you can create new ways of seeing old challenges and coming up with solutions to your long standing concerns.

I also have experience and enjoy working with couples to assist them with better communication, problem solving and a more emotionally intimate relationship. I intergrade family of origin, and separate histories that can effect their current relationship. We talk about where you are now and where you want to be.

I find interactive and collaborative therapy to be most effective in improving and maintaining higher levels of functioning. I know that needing to be heard is crucial in your therapeutic process. By hearing your own words and sharing them with me is a powerful process that creates change.
