Let's face it, it's not easy coming to the decision to seek out counseling, let alone calling a complete stranger to do so. My hope is that, if you decide to take this step to contact me, we will not be strangers for long. I have been a clinician in various capacities for over 15 years and have always worked very hard to make people feel comfortable talking to me. During those years I have developed a general practice where I have seen people for anxiety, depression, parenting , marriage and sexuality.

If you struggle with anxiety, depression (sad most of the time) and/or have family/relationship problems, addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, struggle with parenting issues and are ready to receive the help and support to change the direction of your life, my goal is to help you clear the way to solutions.
As a stroke survivor, I understand the unique challenges that come with healing. What I know to be true is that consistency with patience will lead to resilience. I work with sensitivity and a focus on helping clients develop skills and strengths needed to reclaim their lives. Challenges are difficult. We all have them. Therapy can be a highly effective tool to assist in life's challenges and offer alternative strategies towards a solution. The time is now. Your time is now.

Sometimes life feels hard. Perhaps you're feeling lonely, depressed, stuck, anxious, stressed or just "not yourself". Maybe you're struggling with relationships, your career, parenting , loss and events in life that feel overwhelming. It's difficult to take the first step, but therapy can help you to feel less alone with these feelings and help you to move forward and find long lasting relief and change.

I have been working with families for over 20 years. During this time I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and couples. Many people begin therapy to work towards moving aside obstacles or issues that prevent movement forward, whatever that looks like to them...it is all individual. Although my expertise has always been in working with adolescents dealing with social, emotional, family or school issues, I feel equally capable when working with a family, a couple or an individual towards their goal.

For over the past 16 years I have worked with adults and adolescents struggling with diverse mental health issues. This can include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD,eating disorders, substance abuse, and borderline personality disorder. These issues can be influenced by stress from external triggers, including trauma, family issues, medical issues, work stress, relationship issues, and grief and loss. Throughout my extensive experience in hospital and private practice settings, I find individuals often feel intensely overwhelmed and stuck in negative thinking patterns and behaviors. By developing a therapeutic relationship, we can create a treatment plan to increase positive feelings and facilitate effective behavioral changes.

My passion is helping others. Learning how to move through problems instead of resisting them reduces uncomfortable feelings. How we respond to life determines our level of fulfillment. I help clients improve life functioning and relationships in order to reach their potential. Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, self-esteem, eating disorders, school/academic issues, and relationship turmoil can get in the way.
