Life can feel overwhelming. Maybe you think you have nowhere to turn. But sometimes there's relief in just being understood. I provide a comfortable and accepting safe space where you can freely share whatever you're thinking without being judged. I structure my practice around each client's individual needs because no single model can work for all people. I work with diverse populations, ranging in age from early teens to the elderly, and including clients struggling with dementia, MS, neurological disorders, and caregiving. I specialize in topics such as ADD, anxiety, chronic illness, and depression.

One of the primary goals of treatment when working with chronic illness and/or disability is a focus on quality of life. Areas addressed typically involve depression, anxiety, existentialism, communication, situational and relational issues, treatment adherence, and self-care.

The therapeutic relationship is a major predictor of therapy's success, so getting a feel for my style is an important step on your journey. I look forward to talking to you, whether in person or over the phone. I have day, evening, and weekend appointments available.
