My couples and family work focuses on open and honest communication, building trust and respect for one another while resolving conflicts and interactive barriers.
With 30+ years of experience, I have helped many people recover from Depression, Anxiety, ADD and ADHD, failed relationships and problems with alcohol and drug abuse. As a result of Psychotherapy, you will grow to feel stronger, more confident and self assured, make more empowered decisions and gain more satisfaction in all your relationships. I also offer Neurofeedback which is a neurological treatment that has worked very well for Chronic Anxiety and Depression, Autism, Aspergers, Tourette's Disorder, Migraines and headaches and Sleep disturbances.

I also have expertise in family conflict, bullying, suicidal thoughts, and grief/loss.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Scared, sad, tired, lonely, or angry? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or de-motivating than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

Your instinct is to protect, yet nothing you do seems to help. You feel alone and helpless. You're obsessing, hovering, and constantly questioning their state of mind.

I learned long ago in my own therapy that to be happy, first I had to learn to love myself. Now, as a marriage and family therapist, I help my clients do the same. Therapist Carl Rogers said, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." You don't have to be perfect; it's okay to make mistakes. To realize your dreams, you must face your fears and take risks. It's easier when you stop worrying so much about reaching your goal, and learn to savor the process itself.
