About

It is my privilege to have been working with couples, families, and individuals for over 25 years. My work emphasizes helping my clients find more authentic meaning and purpose in their lives, fully developing their potential, and assisting them in establishing lasting solutions. I have extensive experience treating common couple's and family issues such as communication, parenting, conflict-resolution, and stagnancy, as well as infidelity, addictions, and domestic violence. My clinical expertise in individual psychotherapy extends to depression, anxiety, anger management, addictions, self-discovery, and overall life direction.
For some, it can be uncomfortable coming in for therapy; for others, it is a relief. Either way, my goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment where my clients may be welcomed, understood, and accepted so that we can work together to make positive and lasting change.
Not all therapists offer the same "product." I believe that my years of experience working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences enables me in a unique way to establish rapport and trust. It is important to me for you to find the best therapist available.
