About

Tired of being unhappy? Having difficulty in your relationships or watching members of your family struggle? Don't suffer from worry, depression, anxiety and uncertainty alone. You can take charge of your situation or guide your children to a better start in life. Sometimes we become overwhelmed and unsure of which direction to go. I can help you clarify your goals using different techniques and tools to help you make the small steps that lead to big progress. I foster an accepting, safe, caring, environment utilizing a variety of therapeutic methods to tailor the therapy to fit your needs and situation.
I focus on the strength of the individual within a family/cultural system. I work with individuals, couples, teens and children. I am comfortable and have experience with all age groups. My clients tell me that I am easy to talk to and help them to feel less anxious when exploring painful or difficult subjects.
You can move on and make changes in your life. I continue to be impressed with the ability of people to overcome great obstacles when they reach out to others. Often they express how they wish they had done so sooner. Contact me and we will begin this journey together.
