Anxiety, anger and feeling down diminish your quality of life. These intense emotions reduce personal comfort and disrupt important relationships. I have partnered with many clients to mobilize personal strengths and abilities to address these issues. I utilize easy to understand, direct and effective short term counseling. I am open, understanding and view therapy as a path to personal growth.

I will work closely with you to determine which methods are best for you. My work often focuses on overcoming depression, managing stress and anxiety and learning to direct anger for positive outcomes. I use approaches which activate your positive qualities rather than focusing on past problems.

Through an effective relationship and use of positive psychology, cognitive therapy, mindfulness and acceptance we can come together to resolve personal issues and improve your quality of life. I am ready to make it happen. Are you?
