I am your last stop. If life has disappointed you. If you are depleted. If you are lost. If your relationship is hopelessly leaving you unsatisfied. If your partner is complaining about your internal emotional desert. If you are one step from calling it quits or calling the lawyer. If you are out of ideas at how to make life and relationship work. If therapy has not worked for you in the past ... ... get ready. Your story can take a different turn. Give me a call and let's get started giving you the life - and the relationship - you desire and you deserve. I can help you have more and better.

I enjoy working with new moms, both as it relates to the transition to parenthood and postpartum stress/depression. The birth of a child can be both exhilarating and overwhelming. I am passionate about working with moms to understand these wide range of powerful emotions and how to best manage them. As parents, we often reach out for help when it comes to support for our children but neglect our own struggles. I believe that one of the best things we can do as parents, is to understand how our own dysfunctions play a part in our children's lives.

Our connections to one another and the communities we work and play in are foundational to our health and well-being. It is through relationship that we learn about ourselves and how best to be in relationship with others. At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount. We all benefit from a consistent and trusting relationship in which to identify our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, to be supported in our efforts to determine and utilize our own strengths and resources, to build our coping strategies, and begin to create the change we choose to work on in any stage of life

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.
