You have made the first step to improve your mental health and wellness, seeking the assistance of a qualified therapist. Whether dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship problems or life transitions, therapy can play a key part in the development of goals, identification of roadblocks to achieving those goals and building the tools to bring about change. I bring an integrative approach to help people resolve emotional conflicts, develop self-awareness/acceptance and increase coping skills, constructive behaviors, and thought patterns.
I have over 30 years as a private practice therapist and as the director of programs for mental health and addiction treatment. I utilize CBT, psychodynamic therapy, and motivational interviewing to assist individuals to face their challenges and improve their overall wellness. I also have many years of experience training and supervising other clinicians.
I believe a warm, encouraging approach encourages emotional growth and creates a space for change. Therapy should be a collaborative, interactive process built on respect for the individual. Within that framework, healing and transformation can occur. I look forward to hearing from you.

I mainly work with people struggling with trauma, grief, anxiety and depression. I also work with people in early stages of recovery from substance use and those who are wondering whether they need to cut down or abstain. Together, we develop goals and the steps to achieving those goals. I use those goals as a framework for change, knowing that life happens and goals may need subtle revisions.
