Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

I've been an individual and couples counselor for over 25 years. I work in a friendly, genuine way, creating a safe space in which to help individuals and couples feel better or deal with life challenges - relationships, work issues, low self-worth, or just "stuck." My specialty as a couples counselor is to be sensitive to the different styles of men and women, while both exploring underlying issues and providing tools for healthier communication. In all of my work, I use methods proven by research. For all clients, I believe people should leave therapy feeling, "This person really helped me."

You're going through the daily grind, juggling lots of balls, and trying to keep people satisfied. Meanwhile, you're coming unglued. You start losing your cool with others, become paralyzed with fear, or want to run away from it all. You might be exhausted, edgy, or have trouble concentrating. Maybe you self-soothe in unhealthy ways. You're tired of this but don't know what to do. This is where I come in and our work together begins.
