I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

Now more than ever, in the COVID-19 crisis, therapy can help you to cope with heightened anxiety, depression, loneliness, and lack of purpose. With online video conferencing, I can provide regular therapy without you coming into the office. Therapy provides a safe place to ask the questions that scare us, to find connection and healing, to feel good and be authentic, and take charge of our lives. I support clients' efforts to gain insight into the sources of their challenges and pain, find connection, make positive changes in relationships, identify strengths and resources, cope with personal history, and take charge of their life.

Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level.
