About

Not feeling yourself? Do you want to move past your emotional pain? Are you having relationship problems? In a safe environment, I help adults manage their stress, anxiety, depression and difficult emotions, accept and move through life transitions, and improve their relationships. I assist individuals and couples in gaining awareness of past and present influences on their beliefs and how they relate to others. My therapy work is collaborative with couples, helping partners improve their communication and replace their highly charged emotional interactions with new productive, healthier dialogues.
I believe that people have the ability to heal, change and grow. Through their commitment to therapy, people can overcome emotional challenges that have been barriers in the past and develop new coping strategies to help them better function, both individually and in their relationships.
The client-therapist relationship is extremely important for therapy to be effective. I've been told that I provide a safe, nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship. I would be very happy to talk with you and help you decide if therapy is right for you. I offer a brief, free phone consultation.
