"While life usually has its ups and downs, and everyone encounters difficult days, sometimes things become overwhelming and therefore it makes sense to seek counseling. In fact, often it may be helpful to run a distressing situation past a professional like me, not only to allow the opportunity for an evaluation, but also to hear oneself in the presence of an outside, objective person. I have been successful with young adults, midlife and senior people. The kinds of issues may range but not be restricted to relationship concerns, employment dilemmas, parenting problems and grief associated with loss."

Many of my clients come from other nations, where the norms are different and people live more communally. Most of my clients also have a history of trauma, narcissistic abuse, or issues stemming from their childhoods. These issues and traumas add a layer of complication to an already challenging day to day life. What all of my clients have in common is that they feel anxious, panicked, powerless, and hopeless about their situations. I can help. "
