Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples, and teens for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

I work with couples, focusing on specific communication skills and on complementing differences in the relationship. I also work with teens, and with individuals who have issues of grief and loss, career transition, anxiety, sexual abuse, and trauma.

I have an extensive background working in the public schools with teens and with families of diverse cultural, ethnic, and language backgrounds.
