Each of us faces obstacles and difficulties in life differently, and at times we can all use help. Individuals frequently seek my services during times of transition, when decision making appears to have a greater impact on our future directions. Often individuals may feel helpless, hopeless, frustrated, and defeated by the time they have sought help. Ideal clients are ones who are willing to explore life patterns and look for new ways of achieving their goals. I believe it is my job to provide an environment that I will allow each client to reach their life's potential.

I offer practical and proven methods to help you solve your problems. I have worked effectively with depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and relationship issues. I believe in a strength-based approach,and will help you use your assets to achieve the goals you set forth.

I provide empathic understanding in a trustworthy and supportive environment. I customize my services to the unique needs of each client. While drawing on my years of experience, I will offer you respect, encouragement, and support as we work together collaboratively to achieve your personal goals.
