I am an experienced mental health therapist who is dedicated to helping people recover from various life traumas. My specialty is in working with depression and anxiety. I can help people who are suffering from both and who are also experiencing PTSD symptoms.

For thirty years I have been in private practice helping people handle their mental health needs. My office is small in a large building with lots of other businesses so there is the privacy in the midst of a busy office building.
