Practice Description:
I am still accepting new clients and have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions). I would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty. I offer a free-15-minute intake.

Do you feel overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted, or out of control? Do you have difficulty stopping a constant stream of worries? Have you suffered a trauma that prevents you from experiencing peace of mind? Do you want to feel happier with yourself and in your relationships? Therapy can help you. In a confidential relationship, we can explore the reasons for your unhappiness and find ways to overcome them. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 32 years of experience in the treatment of individuals, couples, and families. I have extensive clinical experience in a wide range of emotional problems.

I offer an approach that considers your personal experiences. My clients request help for a variety of life challenges including some that originate in trauma or abuse, as well as those that arise from other painful experiences. I can help you feel safer, more confident and prepared for life.

Every person has the potential for emotional growth. I can help you heal your past, live in the present, and brighten your future.
