Announcement icon I am continuing to work with clients during the COVID-19 crisis via phone and video sessions.
My goal is to provide you with compassionate understanding and a clear plan for moving forward, whatever this means for you. It may mean overcoming anxiety or depression, improving your relationship, helping a struggling teen, or finding your way after a life change or loss. It could also mean helping you enjoy life more, regardless of what is happening around you. I have been providing therapy to individual adults and adolescents, as well as couples and families for over 20 years. I work with a diverse range of emotional, behavioral and relationship issues, utilizing the most effective research-based treatment models.
Beyond general practice, I specialize in couples therapy, adolescent mental health, and evidence-based treatment of depression and anxiety. I am a directive, results-driven therapist who believes the most effective therapy combines nurturing support with proven cutting-edge strategies.
You don't have to keep struggling. Reach out. My therapeutic approach goes beyond increasing insight to giving you practical actions for improving how you feel, your relationships and your satisfaction with life.
