Have you been feeling stressed, anxious or unbalanced? I provide therapy to individuals ages 10 and older. I provide individual, couples, family, teletherapy and group counseling. I work with individuals to help them obtain support, guidance and coping skills to live a satisfied life. I work with individuals struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, substance abuse, addictions, relationship problems and difficulty with transition. You can expect a person-centered approach in a safe, non-judgmental environment. My goal if for clients to increase happiness and develop a better quality of life.
I am a AASECT certified Sex Therapist who specializes in human sexuality and illness and have experience with teenage pregnancy, infertility issues, sexual identity, sexual compulsions, and sexual dysfunction. I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained therapist and use this technique in treating trauma clients.
I specialize in strengthening relationships and marriages. I can assist couples in communication, increasing intimacy, conflict resolution, surviving an affair and co-parenting. I also help families rebuild from the pain, trauma and emotional abuse from addiction. Please e-mail or call me today to set up your first appointment. Teletherapy available.
