I have over 25 years experience as a Psychotherapist. I can help you cope with anxiety, depression and many other issues towards leading a happier fulfilling life.

Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Do you want to feel better, be less stressed, feel more positive, handle your thoughts and feelings more effectively? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, I can help. I am a supportive and empowering therapist. I provide a warm and supportive environment that stresses collaboration, mutual respect and trust. If you are you ready to start: developing healthy coping skills, change negative behavioral patterns, improve personal/romantic relationships, work on problem solving techniques and reduce stress. Please reach out so I may assist you and help reach your goals.
Our work is empathic, proactive, and collaborative- we are on this journey together. We will make meaning out of hardship and transform crisis into opportunity. I am passionate and committed in helping each person achieve their potential.
I am a very active Therapist and work to empower you with the tools needed to reduce anxiety or depression and change negative thought patterns. My ultimate goal is to help you move forward with new tools and coping strategies. As your Therapist, I will guide you on your journey towards a happier and healthier life.
