Individuals, couples, and families with whom I work deserve thoughtful, individual, compassionate, and confidential attention. I bring quality and creativity to those I meet in my private practice. Understanding my clients from their perspectives is essential in assisting them to discover solutions that work for them. Therapy is not about changing who one is as a person; it is about identifying and respectfully addressing personal and interpersonal obstacles to positive self-concept, self-worth, and happiness. Therapy isn’t about blaming or finding fault; it is about finding safe, healthy solutions to common, as well as less common, difficulties we experience in life.
