About

Effective therapy helps you move away from feelings of distress and struggle and toward a happier, more balanced life. My greatest pleasure as a therapist is guiding clients toward identifying their strengths and re-awakening to life's possibilities. We all have the capacity to grow, learn, and make positive changes no matter what life throws our way. My style is supportive and respectful, but also practical and action-oriented. Together we explore what you want from therapy and customize an approach that's best for you. Clients see me as collaborative, genuine, and committed to their health and happiness.
My practice focuses on anxiety/depression, relationship issues, adjustment to life transitions, stress/anger management, and healing from traumatic experiences. I am trained in EMDR which has been clinically proven to accelerate the resolution of a wide range of issues related to both disturbing past traumatic events and present life conditions.
If you are thinking of giving therapy a try, I invite you to call or email me to ask questions, discuss your concerns, and get a sense of whether I might be the right therapeutic partner for you.
