"Change is difficult, but it is possible. I help people identify the changes they want to make and support them as they journey toward their goals. I use a variety of approaches, adapting them to what is most helpful for the individual. I am direct yet gentle and I will challenge you to trust yourself. I believe that living in the moment is one of the most helpful tools that we have available to us along with learning to quiet our fears, developing good emotional boundaries with others, and being able to identify what is our "stuff" vs. what is the "stuff" of others."

"Psychotherapy can support personal growth and heal wounds; it helps solve problems and builds motivation. I meet each person at their unique place on life's journey to discover how they want to grow. Biofeedback can help in the process to reduce anxiety, stress and tension and we can use it to augment therapy. I want to help with mood disorders such as depression, bipolar and struggles with high arousal such as anxiety, insomnia, impulsivity. I have skills working with people who have ADHD and learning disorders and with those who have substance use disorders. There is hope as each person can heal, flourish and live more fully. "
