Experienced therapy in a relaxed and conversational environment.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, or feeling held back by past experiences? Do you feel like something is missing in your life or that you need to make important connections or breakthroughs to live your life more honestly? Do you feel stuck in the past, afraid to live your life, or lack of motivation? Do you feel like low self esteem or insecurity are holding you back? Are there unresolved issues in your relationships with your parents or your partner?

Like most things in life, getting started is the hardest part. If your search for a therapist or counselor has led you to this page then you are probably ready to start therapy. Give yourself permission to take the next step and call or email me now to schedule a free phone consultation.

I work well with couples experiencing relationship roadblocks, adults seeking clarity and fulfillment, college students looking for direction, and adolescents learning to adjust to new challenges. We will form a partnership to find change, peace of mind, well-being, and happiness. I will be there with you for professional guidance and support as you work to improve your life. I have worked with clients from all walks of life.

Therapy should not be a one size fits all approach. We will work together to understand you as an individual to come up with a plan to help you that is tailored to your personality and needs.

Regardless of the letters after a therapist’s name, if there is no connection, then you may not get the most from your time and effort in therapy. I strive to engage clients from the start and remain a partner on your path forward. My style is conversational and relaxed.

Psychotherapy doesn’t have to be boring or feel like work. My goal as a therapist is to have a great conversation with you and try and help make the hard work seem less difficult, feel less painful, and even sometimes make it enjoyable. I view it as my responsibility to use my empathy, experience, personality, and even sense of humor as tools to help you make your breakthroughs in therapy.

No matter how qualified a therapist is, if you don’t feel comfortable with them, you may not get the most of your time and energy spent in therapy. I engage my clients from the very beginning, acting as a partner on your path forward. I offer a conversational, friendly style that blends approaches depending upon on your individual needs. I also offer busy people high-feedback sessions if they seek a more direct approach.
