Practice Description: I greatly enjoy my work as a therapist and feel privileged to be able to help people feel better and more empowered through working together in therapy. I know that making the decision to start therapy and finding the right therapist can be quite a confusing and overwhelming task. I provide a supportive, nonjudgmental therapeutic environment for you to feel safe and talk about your concerns, whether you are a teen, adult or couple.

My goal as a psychotherapist is to help individuals live more fulfilled lives, whether it is short-term treatment to help clients regain their sense of well-being or more long-term work to help them gain insight and empower them to make changes in their lives.

I particularly enjoy working with adults, both women and men, and helping couples improve their communication, resolve problems, and increase their intimacy.

For 17 years, I have been providing psychotherapy and counseling to teens and their parents. In addition to feeling better and more able to cope with their concerns, teens develop more self-awareness, self-esteem and learn new skills to help them move through the difficult transition from childhood to adulthood. I help their parents understand their child's mental health and developmental issues and assist them in finding ways to parent with age-appropriate parenting interventions.

In my work with women and men and through providing a warm, nonjudgmental environment, I help adults express and work through feelings, gain insight and self-awareness, identify ways to move past barriers that prevent them from living a happy life, and empower them to learn healthy new ways to reduce anxiety and depression, improve their mood and relationships. In therapy, my clients become aware of their patterns that they continue to repeat but which no longer work for them.
I help couples improve their communication, resolve conflict and understand their belief systems and the external stressors that are impacting their relationship.

I suggest that you visit my website at for more information or contact me for a free phone consultation.
