Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: My focus is on building healing and developing strong personal relationships. I believe successful relationships are the key for psychological, physical, and spiritual health. I provide insight therapy for adults experiencing anxiety, depression, abuse, and low self-esteem. Insight into these problematic concerns can help heal the pain that is interfering with a person's life. I view therapy as an adventure into the world within. It's vital to understand the inner forces that fuel our feelings. A respectful understanding of these dynamics will create a fresh perspective and promote a mastery of our lives, to know one's own person, preference, and boundaries.

I provide a safe, supportive environment in which you can explore areas of your life where you feel less than satisfied. I use a combination of Mindfulness and Psychodynamic therapies to help you have a more balanced fulfilling life.

I believe that healing occurs in the present moment. I also help you develop a kind and caring experience of yourself and life circumstances.
