Practice Description: Getting help from a therapist can be a difficult step -- finding someone you can relate to, who understands, and who provides help in a straightforward, positive way is so important. I am warm, nurturing, and direct. I strongly believe in the importance of our relationship: I help you to establish goals, and we work together toward achieving these goals. I provide practical advice and assistance in handling the issues of daily life, and with addressing and healing from the struggle and pain of the past.

I relate well to and enjoy working with children, teenagers and adults. I provide individual therapy, as well as consultation and guidance for parents immersed in the pain and confusion of raising children and teenagers who are struggling in their lives.

I have 20+ years of experience working with adolescents and adults with a variety of issues.
