I am an experienced therapist working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I am dedicated to helping people cope with anxiety and depression. I enjoy working with individuals to learn better ways to manage anger rather than acting aggressively or acting out toward others. I believe that addiction issues should be addressed in a manner that deals not only with the substance or negative behavior, but also with restoration of relationships. Just coping with life issues will leave you struggling. Pursuing healing from the destruction of lifelong negative behavior patterns will allow you to enjoy a better quality of life.

Family structure, life circumstances, trauma and grief can challenge the way we think and feel. Our emotions are often triggered by these life circumstances causing negative behavioral responses such as anxiety, angry outbursts, obsessive-compulsive disorders, drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual addiction, gambling, depression, and relationship conflict. The consequences of these behaviors cause heartache and pain in our lives and often have adverse effects on the people around us. Therapy can show you how negative behaviors limit your life and prevent you from living your life to the fullest potential.

I have worked in the mental health field for 17 years helping people to discover the best and highest expression of themselves once they are free from destructive hurts, habits and hang-ups. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology, and a Master's in Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Life Coach, and Drug/Alcohol Counselor.

With guidance you can learn how to effectively communicate with others, manage stress and anxiety, grieve your losses, and explore ways to thrive instead of just survive in life.
