It's my pleasure to help people enhance their quality of life, improve stress management skills and renew their emotional resilience, whether the challenge is one of relationship, health, or performance.

"If you have taken the time to search for help, you or your child are probably in a great deal of pain. You may have talked to friends and family members and even tried their advice, but found little relief. Nothing has shifted your ongoing sadness and worry. Reaching out for help is a courageous first step toward gaining control of intense thoughts and feelings. Research has shown that therapy can be be an effective way to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression. It takes focusing your attention on what is happening within your mind and within your relationships."
