*I am not able to accept new patients at this time.* Are you at a point where you or a loved one has lost hope? With over 27 years of experience helping children, adolescents, adults, marriages, and families, I've seen many find hope that was previously absent by using a short-term, targeted, and effective approach to counseling. Each therapist has unique strengths. Mine is working through tough problems other therapists don't prefer to treat by seeing clients in their homes rather than in an office. Most people are able to see a significant change within 6 months. Counseling should not last forever and neither should your struggles

There are times in our lives when we get stuck and/or confused; with relationships, parenting, feelings of anxiety, fear, depression, anger, low self esteem or loss and these thoughts and feelings get in the way of our happiness and our ability to function optimally. Old coping skills, which once worked for us, we still use because they are familiar and comfortable but are no longer helpful and often become part of the problem. I consider my ability to connect with you, to "be real", to be trustworthy, mindfully present and to provide a safe space the foundation for positive change.

You don't have to keep feeling stuck. Counseling is a process where you and I work to find realistic solutions. It doesn't matter what you do, where you live, or the past you carry; what does matter is that you are ready to do it differently...that you seek a life with purpose...that you are ready to dedicate energy to finding you...let's work together.
