I am committed to coaching you towards a more fullfilling life. Counseling can help you embrace happiness, manage stress, boost joy in relationships, increase motivation, and unleash creativity. I tailor my approach to your unique goals, using cognitive, behavioral, and other motivational strategies. We will focus on your strengths and amplify them. I will coach you to implement the tools from positive psychology to help you thrive. Through the use of imagination and the discovery of new skills, we will identify solutions and reclaim a sense of control. I will demonstrate my personal values of kindness, courtesy, and mutual respect throughout counseling.

I provide individual, couples, marriage, and family counseling in a nurturing environment. My areas of expertise include Personal Challenges (anxiety, depression, eating disorders), Relationships (communication, conflict resolution, dating, social skills, separation/divorce), and Life Skills (stress management, mindfulness, assertiveness, life transition, goal-setting, time management).

I bring a sense of humor and a pragmatic approach to counseling. Recommendations are geared towards mindfulness, acceptance of what you cannot control, and commitment to action. They may include reading, attention to cognition, relaxation, and guided imagery. Sessions begin and end promptly, and are available by phone for your convenience.
