The decision to begin therapy is often difficult. Having the right therapist will make all the difference. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents. If you are experiencing frustration or loneliness in your relationships or feeling more irritable and depressed in your life, therapy can help. It is helpful to gain a professional perspective and find solutions you may not have otherwise known were there. My personal style is warm and interactive. I use humor when appropriate to help you feel comfortable and create a caring space, without judgment. If you want someone to talk to please call me for a free 20 minute phone consultation, or write me an e-mail.

The therapy I practice combines Motivational Interviewing (which allows individuals to identify "their own" need for change), Humanistic Therapy ( an approach which emphasizes acceptance and understanding so that individuals can share their deepest most painful struggles) and CBT (identifying and replacing unhelpful thinking and behavior patterns that perpetuate problems). Therapy is also tailored to each individuals unique experience and history.

I am confident you will find me a compassionate, empathic, and insightful listener. My client's consistently report feeling greater relationship satisfaction, less stress, enhanced communication skills, improved management of anger, anxiety, and depression, self-confidence, and a greater sense of well-being. Please also note that I am flexible with scheduling and able to provide evening appointments as well. I look forward to hearing from you.
