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 not only treat but I also evaluate & provide a diagnosis & diagnostic evaluations for conditions that have never been addressed or diagnosed!
I have completed Gottman Level 3 & Emotionally Focused Therapy training for couples. My mission in couple's therapy is to help create a more open & expressive space for deeper understanding, connection & happiness using proven techniques. I work with high conflict & pre-marital couples for effective & practical tools to diffuse ongoing communication issues.
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
