At these moments, the idea of sitting with an objective person may have crossed your mind. This is the readiness you need to decide to try therapy. In the safe space created in my office, we will go on the journey that is uniquely yours.

Creating a successful family is the greatest challenge any of us face. So often when our kids enter the teenage years, the dynamics suddenly change. The son or daughter who used to be a part of the family can seem like a different person. The old activities, conversations and rules are different and then journey of raising a teenage begins. As a therapist, high school teacher, and group leader, I have watched adolescents, their parents, and couples go through times of great struggle and come out the other side with a clearer sense of who they are in the world .

High stress can hit you during times of change; birth, separation, divorce or death of a loved one. I will help guide you through this difficult time.
