Find relief from relationship problems and painful feelings like stress, anxiety, and depression through talking it out with me. Letting those feelings out, instead of keeping them bottled up inside will help you understand your feelings better; providing the opportunity for personal growth. Long-term change comes when we develop an intellectual awareness of our emotional life. The integration of mind and heart is what gives you power in your life and relationships. I'm here to listen and guide you towards your best life.
I specialize in overcoming the pain of depression and anxiety. I'm a big fan of talking about death, grief and the meaning of life. Relationships are fundamental to my work. I've received extensive training and certification in group therapy because it provides an ideal environment to improve our connections with all people.
I'm a Certified Group Psychotherapist with over 500 hours of group psychotherapy experience and extensive group therapy training.
