Announcement icon I am accepting new clients at this time (Nov 2022) on Tues, Wed, and Thurs 11am-4pm.

About

With over 20 years of experience, I strive to work with a client in a collaborative and trusting way. Each client is unique and their individual story is worthy of empathy and respect. I'm an interactive therapist who supports open and free dialog in sessions. Clients usually have something that is bothering them, and that is the reason why they come; we start and work on those issues and as a trusting relationship develops, clients usually develop greater clarity, and self-defeating behaviors are gradually given up for those that will have a more positive outcome in their life.
I do therapy with adults, adolescents, and children. I'm an individual and family therapist and strive to have the individual and family function better. I usually interview each person separately, and then bring everyone together after the interviews are complete.
Clients may call initially and speak with me; this initial "reaching out" also helps the therapist in assessing the situation, and determining with the client/clients, his/her/ specific needs regarding the therapy.
