We all arrive at turning points in life, a place in which we realize that our current path no longer suits our needs or reflects our values. A turning point represents a new way to live your life, a fresh perspective that creates new opportunities. Often, we develop ways of coping with life’s stressors and continue to use these outdated coping methods long after they have lost their purpose. Therapy is most effective when it addresses bio-psycho-social wellness – the physical, emotional, and spiritual facets of one’s life. I will listen to your needs and desired outcome to help you create your ideal plan for recovery and wellness.

Areas of specialty in my clinical practice include couple/family relational issues, anxiety, depression, stress and health, life transitions, and work systems issues. Prior to calling for an appointment, anxiety has typically interfered with a person's ability to think clearly and find a solution to a problem. Through the initial assessment phase and as therapy progresses, anxiety generally reduces and the ability to think clearly can be regained to more effectively meet life's challenges.

This is an inside out process that heightens awareness to bring forth new insightful thinking. This inside-out understanding, fresh in the moment, bubbles up creativity to solve problems, enhance relationships, & brings good feelings for a meaningful, satisfying life.
