Getting help from a therapist can be a difficult step -- finding someone you can relate to, who understands, and who provides help in a straightforward, positive way is so important. I am warm, nurturing, and direct. I strongly believe in the importance of our relationship: I help you to establish goals, and we work together toward achieving these goals. I provide practical advice and assistance in handling the issues of daily life, and with addressing and healing from the struggle and pain of the past.
I relate well to and enjoy working with children, teenagers and adults. I provide individual therapy, as well as consultation and guidance for parents immersed in the pain and confusion of raising children and teenagers who are struggling in their lives.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being. -– Carl Jung
