About

I believe that you have the power and opportunity to change your life through therapy. My specialty entails working with teens, young, and middle age adults who experience difficult and challenging relationships, with family, friends, colleagues, and intimate partners. Working with clients who desire healthy relationships but feel precluded from having them, as well as individuals who experience communication and trust difficulties is something I enjoy. My clients and I collaborate in the exploration of challenging relationships and the related symptoms, with a goal of seeking out solutions to personal hurdles.
My clients may experience relationship conflict with their family of origin or in laws, and/or marital issues such as separation and divorce. I also work with individuals who experience general depression, social anxiety, especially related to social media isolation, low self-esteem and self-worth, and fertility issues.
My warmth, understanding, and empathy are indicative of the type of individual and therapist I am. We all experience difficulties, but our struggles do not have to overwhelm and dictate our lives. Your attitude and perspective are integral to your sense of well-being. Take control today!
