About

Isn't it frustrating to be confronted with life issues that can cause hardship and emotional pain. That despite your best efforts a more desirable outcome seems illusive. Sometimes, we all need a helping hand to identify and initiate more effective life strategies. I can help you promote desirable changes with either long standing personal issues or more acute ones that have been brought on by circumstances or unfortunate life events. No matter what the situation, the opportunity for positive change is always present.
As a licensed psychologist with over 25 years experience. I have developed expertise in such areas as: chronic pain and medical illnesses, relationship issues, marital and couples counseling, parenting concerns, stress management and relaxation techniques, life transitions and coaching and addictions.
I am an empathetic and insightful therapist. I am committed to helping people by utilizing a combination of strategies that complement your personal style and foster your strengths. Give yourself the opportunity to explore the possibilities of change. Let me assist you in making your goals a reality.
