About

Life isn’t always easy. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, addiction or loneliness, you should know that there's hope for a better tomorrow. I specialize in helping married and unmarried partners and work with those going through or recovering from divorce. I am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional and a Certified Addictions-Informed Mental Health Professional and have Gottman Relationship training. I can help you with the skills and tools you need to communicate effectively, solve your relationship problems, restore and strengthen relationships, heal the hurts, and experience the satisfaction you desire.
I will listen to your special circumstances and help you gain understanding. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential environment for individuals, couples and families; a place where you can talk about difficult issues in order to dissolve them. My style of counseling is supportive, encouraging, and relaxed yet straightforward when you need me to be.
The decision to begin counseling can be difficult. It is an important step toward creating change in your life. I can help you make those changes. I offer a free 15-minute initial phone consultation. All you need to do today is call. I look forward to speaking with you.
