I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

As a psychotherapist for the past 30+ years, I feel passionate about helping people experience more joy and contentment in their relationships and in their lives. I believe that every crisis or problem that arises also provides an opportunity for healing and growth. Whether you are depressed, anxious, having marital conflicts, parenting difficulties, recovering from a traumatic experience, or in the midst of a life transition, we can problem-solve together and discover new possibilities for you. My style can best be described as interactive and engaging. I am a supportive listener, yet give honest feedback and offer suggestions for positive actions.

Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.

Many of us at one time or another need the help of an experienced therapist. Are you spending most days not feeling good, suffering from mood swings, anxiety or depression? Are you or your family/peers concerned about your drinking? Perhaps you are stuck, like "super glue" to old damaging behavior patterns, which can spell doom for a satisfying relationship. Have you reached a point in your life where you need help moving forward? If you have tried everything and nothing has worked, perhaps it's time to see a licensed therapist.

I hear every day how stressful life is. You may feel like there is no time to focus on your self-care. So many people are feeling worried, sad. and have too many thoughts flowing through their minds. Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level. On some days you may have energy and on others, you may just muddle through. I know it is frustrating and tiring
