Yes, it may seem difficult to reach out and seek help. But consider how you are suffering now... and take a quick-step forward. It's time to cut through depression, fear, shame and doubt. Move on and start creating better options for a better life. My style may be considered straight talk, honest and to the point. So, if you have had enough of the negative, then call me and let's set a course for something different, something better. Both misery and joy love company, which one will you choose?

Life is filled with challenges that affect each of us in different ways. I believe the way we approach and overcome those challenges allows us to experience life to the fullest. I began my Marriage and Family Psychotherapy practice to use my life experience, education, and passion to help serve the mental health needs of our community. Through my experience in a variety of settings, I discovered that building a supportive relationship through therapy creates a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, learn new skills, enrich relationships, and work through situations to lead a more authentic life.

My therapeutic approach focuses very much on the here-and-now. While events in your past certainly played some role in your present distress, the past can not be changed. I believe the primary goal of psychotherapy is to teach you the tools you need to change the current patterns that are causing you problems. I also have special training and experience working with children and adolescents. While the techniques used with youths are obviously different from those used with adults, the goal remains the same: to provide the tools that will bring about positive change.
