About

Are you feeling like something is missing in your life? Do you wish you could have your life back the way it used to be? Or maybe it has never been what you would like it to be. It could be related to relationships, work, family, or even nothing that you can identify at all. Ignoring the problem is not the answer even though it seems easier. You may want a "quick fix" but there is no replacement for really working through the issues in our lives and getting to a better place. Basically...how you got where you are and where to go from here. It is a big step. That's the kind of "fix" that lasts a lifetime.
I specialize in individual and couple counseling for issues related to depression, anxiety, anger, conflict, grief, and life transitions with ages 14 and up. Using an cognitive-behavioral-based therapy, we will explore obstacles in your life that keep you in the same, unsatisfying place, so you can then find a more balanced and fulfilling life.
It's typical to feel nervous about starting therapy especially for the first time. The first phone contact can ease your mind. You may find the first visit to be much more comfortable than you imagined. We will work together on your journey to a better place. Scheduling is based on your needs. Welcome your life's potential and call me today.
