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.
