I have always maintained the belief that individuals who seek clinical support are the healthy ones- they recognize that something is wrong and want to make a change. Becoming aware is the first step to moving forward. However, awareness without action can create, frustration, depression, anxiety and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. It is my job to navigate your complicated and conflicted emotions/behaviors to bring you to a place where you can make healthy choices and decisions. My goal is to teach you strategies that will break the cycle to create a new way of being - to live in the present and plan for the future.

Making the decision to see a therapist is hard but if you are reading this, you've already taken the first step towards wellness and a better you. Celebrate small victories - they lead to bigger ones! Maybe you have a specific challenge you'd like to work through. Maybe you just need to talk. Maybe you don't even know what is motivating your behaviors and beliefs but you know you are ready for a change. Whatever your "it" is, I would love to assist you in exploring, learning, and growing. I meet clients where they are and encourage them to face their fears, achieve goals and take steps towards the life they've always wanted.

Over the past 42 years, I have devoted my practice to the treatment of people who want to feel happier with themselves, their relationships with their children, spouses, or family of origin. Many times people suffer from low self esteem, anxiety and depression. Parents come in with issues around their adolescent's behavior. Adults wish to improve how they communicate to their spouses, or would like to deal more effectively with problems at work and with bosses, or other authority figures. Many need help with everyday functioning, and some are struggling with confidence issues and initiative to set positive goals for the future.

Listening to the narrative of every person's life is fascinating to me. I am empathic, interactive and am a firm believer that good therapy brings results that make people feel more comfortable, empowered, and gives you the strength that is needed to grow. Therapy begins with identifying painful situations, or problematic themes that repeatedly arise, and interfere with one's life. I believe that therapy should be transformative, and I try to provide a healing experience for those clients with whom I work. I am particularly skilled in working with panic disorder, depression, divorce conflict, and trauma, including sexual abuse.

People decide to seek out a therapist for a myriad of reasons. Many people suffer from social anxiety, chronic low self-esteem or a persistent sense of sadness or loneliness. Others have recurring, often trauma related experiences, which can cause sleeping or eating disturbances, substance abuse, and panic. These persistent, stubborn feelings often make it difficult to function optimally in our daily lives, can interfere with our ability to develop and sustain fulfilling relationships and prevent us from achieving our dreams and goals.
