The way we experience our lives around us, is vastly shaped by our past learned experiences, especially as children and teenagers. Ideally, a child should learn how to navigate the world with confidence, feels secure and safe, skillfully assured of his/her own ability to problem solve. When someone suffers from anxiety, depression or personality disorders, he/she have been forced to develop different set of skills, mostly on his/her own, designed to defend the body against either perceived or real traumatic events. As a result, their views of themselves and, the world and others, becomes rigid, distorted and generalized.

An ideal client is someone who may struggle with anxiety, depression, forming or maintaining close relationships, loss of normalcy, death of a loved one, and/or work-induced stress. Life may be so busy that they may not even have time to consider what brings joy, creativity, and inspiration. Maybe they feel overburdened by the never ending list of needs from others in their life and they just need a safe place to express themselves. Many people have professional careers, families, own property, etc. However they may feel stuck and unable to cope with unresolved grief and loss, anxiety, depression and that's where I can help.

I provide a warm, non-judgmental environment in which I hope you will feel comfortable, so you can achieve your goals, change something that's not working for you, develop self-awareness, or better understand your own potential. I strongly believe in working with people of all ages, since our stages of life change. I can adjust my therapeutic technique dynamically based on feedback the client provides me on what works for you.

Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

I am a LCSW-C therapist who works with adolescents, adults, and couples. Life has a way of presenting people with challenges that may cause you to want to seek counseling to help you navigate your way through life's ups and downs. Sometimes these challenges make us feel stuck and uncertain, whether it be relationship issues, divorce, intimacy, death of a loved one, loss of a job, grief, suicide survivor, identity crisis, family conflict, addiction, domestic violence, abuse, sexual orientation, or simply feeling like you are at a cross roads and not sure what to do next.

Fear, sadness, grief, anger, anxiety, betrayal, confusion, physical pain and other life/relationship/work stresses can leave us feeling lost and out of balance with ourselves and with others who are important to us. I have worked for 20+ yrs. doing both solution-focused and longer-term therapy with individuals and couples who are challenged with such issues. I actively engage with my clients to bring about new insights, and fresh ways of thinking, feeling and behaving where a re-balance can occur. Clients achieve greater clarity, empowerment, peace, and satisfaction and, in turn, feel more connected with themselves and others.
