Announcement icon At this time I offer phone, video, outdoor and text therapy. I am introducing monthly packages providing a combination of options.

About

My philosophy is to approach each person as unique with personal strengths. In a supportive atmosphere I will help you explore ingrained and disruptive patterns, to enhance personal growth, improve self esteem, mood and personal relationships. I see therapy as a partnership that allows for a respectful give and take relationship. The ultimate goal is for you to reach your highest level of happiness and satisfaction in your life. During this very difficult time I am offering varied ways of doing therapy including unlmtd. text, video and audio messaging and weekly sessions with billing packages to address financial effects of Covid.
I specialize in Couples, Families, Eating Disorders, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. My approach in each is to provide clients with the opportunity to see their problems in a new light in order to shift their beliefs about themselves and others.
I approach therapy with a focus on the Mind/Body connection and incorporate alternative approaches, such as relaxation, meditation, mindfulness, breathing and yoga. We work together to develop skills for coping and coexisting with what has always felt like too much. Today's "new normal" can be a challenge. Let's face the challenge together.
