Life is full of challenges that test our resilience and leave us questioning or doubting ourselves. Therapy is a place to get the support you need to move forward and discover new meaning, joy, and honesty in your relationships. While I tend to focus on the here and now of life’s obstacles, during therapy, we will likely explore past patterns and incorporate mindfulness to help you feel more in control in the future.

People are the center of my practice. While I have a wide range of experience and expertise in various techniques, I always take a person-centered approach to therapy. Every individual is unique, and it is important to treat your symptoms, not simply your diagnosis. Sometimes even the most basic and routine challenges of everyday life can seem complex, unpredictable, or even overwhelming. Whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, grief, or just going through a difficult transition, my goal is to foster a trusting, safe, and confidential environment for you to heal and grow.
Do you feel distant from your partner? Are you having trouble communicating? Do you feel like you are fighting all of the time? Many couples experience times in their relationships when they feel dissatisfied or begin to question the relationship itself.

I am passionate about working with individuals and families to overcome the challenges that lead them to seek therapy. Additionally, I hope to help individuals that are navigating the transition into parenthood.

I am a direct, compassionate and supportive listener. My goal is to assist you in identifying areas to relieve pressure or problems in your life.

So often I meet mothers and daughters that thought they were the only ones who have conflict, feel unheard and misunderstood. But the truth is, this problem affects all of us at some point. The struggle between mother and daughter is the result of something we don't always feel entitled to have. Our voice. Our needs. Our emotions. The struggles mothers and daughters face at different stages of life occur during the teens, college, career, moving away, weddings, babies. We often blame ourselves for our breakdowns but it couldn't be further from the truth. Healing this now protects your future relationships and the daughters to come.

Life is too short to be living a life that 'does not work'. Family of origin patterns often interfere with successful relationships; using Imago therapy we can uncover and heal emotional patterns that prevent marriages from thriving. The stresses of life can be overwhelming especially if one is not in a good relationship with oneself - are you your own best friend? Sometimes anxiety or depression or anger get in the way of a satisfactory life; it doesn't have to be that way and I can help you change what needs to be changed.
Making the initial call is the first courageous step in beginning the process of healing and improving quality of life. My personality as a therapist is one of nurturing, warmth, genuineness, and a non-judgmental demeanor. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents to address their specific developmental challenges and needs in an atmosphere of acceptance and respect. Together, we will strive to explore and identify your strengths, understand and cope with life transitions, anxieties, fears, depression, relationship issues, job stress, and the struggles of everyday life.
In 30 years as a therapist I have worked with individuals as young as 12 and as old as 85; with families and couples of every background and socio economic group. I have worked with patients dealing with a range of problems from the profoundly tragic to the mundane. I have learned that regardless of life's circumstances everyone has the capacity and resources within themselves to live life more fully. As a therapist, I rely on whatever professional knowledge and expertise I possess, as well as any wisdom that I may have gained in my own personal journey through life.
