Let’s talk. I excel at creating the safe space you need to share your thoughts, feelings, and fears, without worrying about being judged or having to apologize.
I am a skilled therapist with over 20 years of experience working with adolescents, young adults, adults, and couples. I use an eclectic approach, providing short- and long-term treatment, tailoring my style to each person to make sure that your goals are achieved.

You have taken the first step toward making a difference in your life by exploring therapists. I know you want to make sure you have the right therapist to help you and am pleased that you are looking at my profile. I can and I will help! I am empathetic, a good listener and problem solver. I will work with you to address the issues you identify, such as stress, sadness, anger, and anxiety, while we improve your relationships, self-esteem, work and/or school life. Therapy will sometimes be difficult and often be the best part of your week, as you talk about what is happening to you and how you feel. Through the therapeutic process, you will you feel less stressed, happier, and more content. It is my hope that by working together we will find new perspectives and insights that will help you move toward achieving your personal goals.
