In the stressful world we live in today, it is not hard to lose connection with a sense of inner peace. Undertaking the challenge of therapy can help you to restore balance in your life. You can heal your pain, broaden your perspective, understand your emotional reactions, and break old habits and patterns. I will do my best to provide a safe, comfortable environment in which to explore your concerns. My goal is to help you to understand and accept yourself more fully, to heal from the past, learn skills for coping with distressing symptoms and to get more satisfaction out of your relationships.

Counseling is provided for individuals (adults, adolescents 13 and up), couples and families. Specializations are anxiety, depression, recovery from trauma or abuse, relationship issues, self-esteem, eating disorders, addictions and other compulsive behaviors. People from all cultural backgrounds, religious affiliations and sexual orientations are welcome.

My core approach to therapy is cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and emotion-focused. Additional tools are used as needed, such mindfulness and meditation, Eye Movement and Desensitization (EMDR) for trauma/PTSD and the Bio-Acoustical Utilization Device for anxiety. Treatment is tailored to a client's needs, preferences, and presenting concerns.
