"Perhaps what brought you here is a lingering feeling that something isn't right. Maybe it's a dissatisfaction with life, career, relationships, or a knowing that you can't continue along with the same way of being. I too have been in that place before, and have felt the tremendous shifts that are possible with consistent therapy. In my practice, I specialize in working with men and women in transitional life phases, individuals dealing with relationship stress, new and expecting parents, those who are dealing with loss, issues with self esteem, and people from dysfunctional family systems.
