I am a seasoned licensed and board certified psychotherapist with over 20 years of clinical experience.
I specialize in:​

Relationship issues
I also help clients with:
Depression
Grief / Loss
Adjustment / Life Transitions
ADD/ADHD

Divorce and Separation

Whether you’re struggling with anxiety, issues from the past, relationship problems, or stress, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I understand that no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles, address them with long-lasting strategies, and help you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted. We will explore your feelings, circumstances, and options. I will help you work on coping with what is right in front of you, navigate the present, and address the future. We will not only explore your symptoms, but also their causes.

Our sessions will be a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in the atmosphere full of empathy and devoid of judgment. Opening the door to fully expressing yourself is an important step toward healing and growth, and I will be honored if you allow me to become a part of your journey. If you’re ready to work toward making the changes in your life that you have longed for, I’m ready to help.
