Announcement icon Understanding rising concerns due to the COVID-19 virus, I am offering video/teletherapy with clients. Most insurances currently cover this.
Clients wanting change, a non-judgmental listening ear, encouragement, and for tools to improve their personal life situation are welcome. Whether you have lost yourself, are uncertain about the future, unsettled due to life challenges, depressed, anxious, using drugs/alcohol to cope,relationship/parenting troubles, or have a child with behavioral issues, you have taken the first step towards getting help.

Helping clients feel welcome, comfortable, and accepted is important to me. Assisting clients in identifying goals and offering tools to achieve them is a priority.
