About

I take pride as a psychologist in the area of personal growth when dealing with life's challenges. This involves meeting your needs and starting where you are now and going from there. I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationships, children, parents, and more.
My knowledge base culminates in a specialty in couple's counseling, reproductive medicine, child development, gamete donation, surrogacy and the everyday life challenges of evolving into a better self. My work does not end once a reproductive success is achieved but continues as I help families tackle issues of relationships, child development, and personal growth.
Having the specialized knowledge base involved in reproductive medicine and contemporary family building gives me a unique edge in helping families live healthy lives. Utilizing my professional training, life experience, and special expertise gives me a unique perspective in how to help others. Feel free to contact me for more information.
