Practice Description: I have 25 years of experience in this profession and I love what I do. I care about people and am committed to helping adults and youth improve their lives, enjoy relationships that are more satisfying and increase success at home, work or school. I take care of my clients providing support, perspective and personal empowerment. I highly value and respect each person I work with. My approach is non-judgmental, sensitive, understanding and supportive. I move beyond the presenting problems and address the underlying core conflicts. I strive to motivate, encourage and support my clients as we work together in a therapeutic relationship. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments in an individual private office. I am always available for intensive outpatient treatment, between session support, and immediate crisis intervention.

Additional Comments: Reaching out for help is often the most difficult step. Being listened to and understood by a professional who is trained and experienced opens the door for self-awareness and discovering inner resources. By reducing the intensity of the emotional distress my clients experience, they build confidence. This improves their ability to handle stressful situations and building resilience to adapt to other life changing circumstances. I have dedicated my career to changing people's lives, resolving conflict and raising hope in the challenges people face.
