Announcement icon COVID19 therapy is video only. Your acceptance is your consent. I send a video link and expect you keep yourself secure. Fees are waived.
I work with college and graduate students, individuals and couples seeking counseling for relationship issues, women who struggle with self-esteem issues, people seeking career changes, people having a crisis of faith and/or meaning, and single parents. Call me if you are in transition of any kind, are "stuck" in your significant relationship or work environment, have anxiety/depression while in school or on the job market, or seek premarital counseling. Additionally, I do specialize in working with people having symptoms of PTSD.
I frequently use humor and laughter in my therapy practice. I foster trust so that my clients are safe while experiencing true emotions while coming into new insight.
The therapeutic relationship is a practice space that is safe and positive. I strive to help people live differently in their real worlds, experiencing greater joy and meaning in relationship with others.
