My particular focus in private practice includes distinguishing between ADHD and anxiety, depression, mood swings, traumatic events, gender and sexuality, and personal relationship issues ( parent /child, couple, social network).
I listen without judgment. I focus on your strengths rather than your weaknesses and build on those strengths. It takes courage to seek help. Often, people seek counseling when life continues to interrupt their happiness and general satisfaction with life. Here is a list of issues that typically bring clients to counseling: Physical, sexual or verbal abuse, alcohol or drugs, anger, anxiety, sadness or depression, codependency, bullying, grief and loss, significant life changes, low self-esteem, relationship issues, religion, sexuality, traumatic events, and workplace issues.

Life often presents challenges - family conflict, relationships, eldercare, self-care. Choosing a therapist with advanced clinical knowledge offers you the maximum opportunity to experience contentment in life. Relationship difficulties often escalate - working with an experienced therapist increases the probability of a positive outcome. Parenthood can be challenging; while bringing immense joy, pride, and personal growth, it can also add much stress. Caring for an aging parent can be stressful and challenging for you and your parent (s). An experienced counselor assures your well-being and success in all areas of your life.
