About

Give yourself credit! The fact that you're seeking a therapist is a sign of inner strength and courage to face, rather than avoid a difficult situation. The heart of successful therapy involves a caring and close relationship with healthy boundaries where anything can be discussed without fear of judgement. Whether you are accustomed to handling your challenges on your own or prefer to bounce things off trusted friends, there are times when we all need a safe place to talk and be heard. I will provide that place for you.
Navigating through the transitions in life can be tricky, even frightening at times. Stress, anxiety, depression, losses, relationship difficulties all interfere with a satisfying, meaningful life. I have learned a great deal from the people who walk into my office. I listen closely and together we sort out what really matters and develop a plan.
I work within a multidisciplinary group--psychiatrists, social workers, educational specialists and other psychologists, should a referral be appropriate. With me most days are Toby and Alice--my therapy dogs. Serious as it is to undertake treatment, along with the work come opportunities to laugh and have some fun. I look forward to working together!
