I work with people struggling for a way out of addiction; gay and lesbian clients seeking to make better lives in a heterosexual world; parents coping with pressures in the family; teens struggling to overcome unhealthy behavior.
Do you have anxiety or stress that is crippling your life? Depression that keeps you from connecting with others or thriving in your career? Anger that gets in the way of relationships? Or perhaps your marriage or relationship seems to be crumbling. If any of these hit home with you, therapy will help you.

Everyone thinks you are fine, but you go to work and no one can tell that you’re struggling inside. You feel depressed, anxious, worn down. All you want to do is sleep and shut out the world. The self-contempt, criticism, and doubt are real, and they are relentless. You want to reach out for help but feel guilty, even selfish. By putting everyone else at the top of your list, you’ve neglected and dishonored yourself. What you really want is to feel a sense of worth, like you belong, like you have something to contribute to this vast world.
