Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
RELATIONSHIP SPECIALIST! Are you a couple who really wants to stay together but marriage counseling has failed you? Unhappy? Problems? Stuck? Need to get your thoughts together? Do you want a closer relationship or do you sometimes wonder whether to stay together? In the beginning everything was so easy. Now you are tired of arguing over the same things. I help people to find new solutions to old problems. Are you having problems with adult children and would like to improve and heal the relationship? Do you have difficulty identifying, expressing and understanding your own feelings and those close to you? Is it time to build your personal confidence and self-esteem? The joys and sorrows of marriage, parenting and children can be understood in a way that encourages your growth. Therapy can help you understand your choices and motivations and present a ne w path to resolving problems. I treat a culturally diverse population of adults, adolescents and children facing all sorts of challenges: depression, self-esteem/self image, stress, anxiety, life changes/parenting issues, losses, trauma, anger, family problems, career issues, self-growth, health and relationship difficulties.
Don't know where to turn? Try me. Times and fees can be discussed. I have been a therapist for more than 25 years. Clients are comfortable discussing their problems because of my interactive and non-judgemental style. If you have more questions for me after you read this profile, I would be delighted to hear from you.Taking the first step toward getting help is often the most difficult --please don't hesitate to call or e-mail.

||I see couples who have failed at marriage counseling and still want to stay together. Do you feel misunderstood. Do you or your partner need help expressing your feelings. Do you feel that life has lost meaning and want more vitality in your life. When people come into therapy they often feel lost and don't know where to turn. They want to know who they are as a person and be confident as they make decisions and to have more fulfilling relationships. Call me - there is hope so don't wait one more day.
