Are you struggling with relationship issues or a life transition? Feeling anxious or depressed? I offer therapy in a safe, warm, non-judgemental environment. There are so many influences in this world that shape the way we think about ourselves and others. Sometimes our thinking has become so negative that it is hard to see our situation as hopeful or positive. I see therapy as a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client. No matter what you are struggling with, I can help you make a fresh start and renew your thinking, and make positive changes!

I feel that establishing a trusting relationship is one of the most important factors in having a successful client/counselor relationship.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or confused? Are changes or struggles within your family causing you stress? Do you need help navigating a new challenge in your life? Does your child or teen need some help and guidance? Life's journey can be difficult at times and we may need the support of someone to assist us in seeing things from another perspective and finding ways to problem solve. I can help you move forward and provide you with strategies to do so. I commend you for taking this first step to getting the support you need and deserve at this time in your life.

Fear, sadness, grief, anger, anxiety, betrayal, confusion, physical pain and other life/relationship/work stresses can leave us feeling lost and out of balance with ourselves and with others who are important to us. I have worked for 20+ yrs. doing both solution-focused and longer-term therapy with individuals and couples who are challenged with such issues. I actively engage with my clients to bring about new insights, and fresh ways of thinking, feeling and behaving where a re-balance can occur. Clients achieve greater clarity, empowerment, peace, and satisfaction and, in turn, feel more connected with themselves and others.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
