"Hope is the little voice you hear whisper "maybe" when it seems the whole world is saying "no". (Anonymous) Therapy is an opportunity to reflect on your life, recognize your strengths and challenges and realize the happiness you deserve. Understanding yourself and knowing what's important to living your best life can be achieved through individual and/or group support. In a safe supportive environment with an experienced clinician, whispers of "maybe", can be transformed into a thunderous "yes I can".

I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 25 years of providing mental health services to adults, couples, families & groups. My motto is Mental Health Therapy Can Benefit Everyone!!! Changes in mental health is largely about brain health by changing your thoughts and self-limiting beliefs. Thoughts impact your nervous system. Changing thoughts leads to changes in behavior. New behaviors can bring about better coping strategies, less depression & anxiety, gratefulness, and clarity of life goals for success. Based on new advances in neuroscience you can rewire your brain for happiness in love, work, family, inner peace, & finances.
The most therapeutic element in psychotherapy is the relationship between us. You invite me into your interior self which is a special, even sacred, place hiring me as a guide during this phase of your life's journey. Ultimately, our goal is to do things better by initiating new ways of being or putting aside some of the old. Therapy is not escape; it is not blame. It is about better facing the challenges of life, helping ourselves find our way through where we now are, and sometimes it's also about finding our way back to ourselves.
