Some people seek therapy because they feel stuck in life, want to better understand themselves, or are facing stress, sadness, or major life changes. I understand that you are the one person who knows yourself best. Therefore as co-therapists, together you and I can work toward you moving forward to a brighter horizon. In addition to providing therapy, I also offer testing services to children and adults. My assessments provide you a clinical picture of what is currently going on for you (or your child) and treatment recommendations on how to get you to where you want to be.

As a licensed therapist my goal is to make the counseling process one of comfort and growth. I understand that it isn't easy to make change, and it can be both difficult and painful to address an issue that is truly weighing you down. I believe in a holistic approach to counseling and am also trained in many evidence based techniques. I offer evening hours in addition to Saturday.
