Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic our physical offices are closed. We are offering phone and video therapy to existing clients and new clients!
I believe strongly in the trans-formative energy of the human spirit. I believe that with self determination and a knowledgeable, non-judgmental approach one can reach a place of absolute self-fulfillment, genuine inner peace & meaningful healthy connections with others. Clients have told me that I have a natural ability to create an environment that encourages self exploration & a safe space. I work with adult ADHD/ADD; I offer organizational coaching, impulse control techniques. I also specialize in treating therapist as the client around issues of professional burn out, stress management and trauma.
My mission in therapy is to help create a more open & expressive space for deeper understanding, connection & happiness using proven techniques. I work with highly motivated clients around issues of Panic, Anxiety, Depression & Low Self Esteem. I also offer Personal Growth & Accountability Coaching for building Healthy Habits & Ending Procrastination
We pride ourselves on staying current on the most effective treatments/techniques in the ever changing mental health world. We pride ourselves on being effective in our treatment results. Wouldn't it make sense to work with someone who has years of experience in drastically helping others to self improve? OFFERING TELEHEALTH SESSIONS DURING THE PANDEMIC
