"I believe it is a difficult decision to reach out for support from another person. In so doing, therapy not only needs to be a gentle guidance towards a happier lifestyle, but it also needs to incorporate challenges. In working with individuals, couples and families, I enjoy creating a balance of both of these concepts. Shifting our perceptions and changing our behaviors is not a simple process for anyone. I work with parents, teenagers and even our littlest people during stressful life situations including depression, anxiety, anger management, marital issues, women's issues, and processing traumatic events."

Increasing arguments, lost trust, resentment, distance and problems with intimacy are some of the issues that make having a happy relationship seem impossible. Maybe you are not sure if your relationship can ever be happy and healthy again or if it will even survive. I believe there is hope for struggling couples to become stronger, healthier and happier by getting clear about why they are where they are and where they want to be -- individually and as a couple -- and what it will take to get there."

"There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance."
