"Therapy is a place to find your true self. It is a place to learn to leave behind judgement, frustration, worry, and unhappiness. These conditions drain personal resources and create separation. When relationships get bogged down by conflicting needs or demands the result is emotional isolation. Unrealistic expectations and obligations freeze one's ability to have choice. Relationships suffer from within and without. Gaining back happiness takes imagining change can be possible. My office provides a safe therapeutic environment where you can find the meaning missing in your life, your marriage, your relationships, your family and within your true self."

If there is an area in your life that you are struggling with, therapy may benefit you. Therapy doesn’t require a big event to happen or even for you to know what is going on. If something is off or seems harder for you than others, there may be an underlying issue that needs a therapeutic intervention. I specialize in caring for the caregivers.

"Life can be a difficult journey but the journey, no matter the distance, starts with one step. Even when we seem to be on the right path, things can happen that throw us far off course and we lose ourselves and our way. When things veer off course they manifest in a many ways like anxiety, grief and depression and we need a guide to walk with us. But maybe our way back to our wholeness is a knowing that we are already whole and have value worth. We deserve to be happy and are allowed to lose our way and deserve to enjoy our life. You are worth the time and energy needed to spend on yourself to find your way back to you. "
