Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.

I create a safe space for you to be able to vent. Often having a person listen with understanding of what you might be experiencing can ease your discomfort. I can offer gentle guidance if you are at a crossroad, a turning point or are feeling challenged by others in your life. Relationships are the most important things in our lives, yet often, the most difficult. Better communication skills can help.
