Hi, and welcome. For many people, the decision to get help can be a difficult one. I see your visit to my profile as a sign of strength and a refusal to give up. Loneliness, the inability to enjoy life, excessive worry or fear, anxiety in social situations, unhappiness or problems in personal, professional or marital relationships, not knowing what to do personally or professionally, even substance "abuse" and PTSD are issues that are interpersonal, not biological. They can be overcome within a genuinely understanding, compassionate, active, and patient therapeutic relationship.

Specialty interests are chemical addiction, trauma, severe mental illness and other co-occurring conditions incl.
I like to think of psychotherapy as an opportunity to rearrange the furniture in your head. I do not claim to have all the answers, but I utilize the therapeutic space to help you develop your own answers. I strive to help you gain wholeness, healing and recovery...in a comfortable therapeutic environment...instilling hope and a belief in the ability to adapt and overcome. My clients tell me I am easy to talk to, that I have a calmness about me which helps them "open up". I wholeheartedly believe in the power of psychotherapy as a meaningful tool for recovery from life's sufferings.

The experience of being abused or enduring a traumatic event can produce a range of challenges as a result. However, as a child or teen, navigating life thereafter can require specialized help. There is no need to face challenges alone. I specialize in helping kids and teenagers work through this process so that the trauma doesn’t define them. They can move forward with their lives in a positive, meaningful way, even discovering insights and strengths to empower them for the present and future.

Effective treatment is strength based in nature; recognizing that all people possess resources for change and that change is possible when these resources are utilized.
