Practice Description: • Are you struggling with life issues?
• Are you dealing with challenges in your significant relationships?
• Do you feel stressed with the demands of daily life?
• Having difficulty maintaining healthy boundaries and work/life balance?
• Longing for meaningful relationships?
• Do you feel out of control at times?
• Burning the candle at both ends?
• Dealing with feelings of anxiety about the present or the future?
• Having financial concerns?
• Fighting depression?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE. At one time or another, we all struggle with some life circumstance or situation that finds us questioning where we are in our lives and where we are going. I’m glad that you’ve gotten this far in your search for meaning and satisfaction and I hope that you will soon be ready to take that next step of building a FRESH START in your life. You deserve a life of balance, healing and wholeness and I would be honored to talk with you about how to achieve the goals you have in mind for creating a more satisfying life.

Are you worried that a therapist couldn’t possibly "get" you or have the patience and understanding to work with you? I assure you, I will offer support, comfort and confidential guidance to help you explore your feelings and understand factors that may be hidden or unnoticeable to you because you are too close to the situation. We will work together to figure out solutions that are right for you.

The majority of my practice consists of adults; men and women of all ages and covers a wide range of personal, educational and professional backgrounds. The issues we deal with are many:

- Anxiety
- Depression
- Grief/Loss
- Divorce/Separation
- Women's Issues
- Adjustment
- Marital & Relationship conflict
- Self-Esteem/Confidence/Self-Image Problems
- Job-Related Issues
- Communication Issues
- Anger Management
- Gay/Lesbian Issues
- Work/Life Balance
- Supporting/Reinforcing Recovery
- Spiritual Growth

I will partner with you to help you cope with life’s challenges in a safe, professional environment where your personal choices are respected. Together we will work to help you achieve better functioning and balance in your family life, significant relationships, your work and your free time.

It may help you to know what some of my client’s have said about our time together, of course their names are withheld to protect their confidentiality:

"I can't thank you enough for all of your support. You saved my life, just knowing someone truly cared about my well-being - when I had no one in my life that did..."

"You have really helped me in so many ways and on so many levels. I can't thank you enough for bringing me this far in therapy. I know I would have never been able to get this far without you. Your words still play such an important part of my everyday life...thank you for all of your time and help. You have a gift to be able to make such an impact on people's lives."

"You have given me the strength, courage, validation to fight for myself and clearly see that I am worth fighting for...just know that you have touched my soul and in turn helped me to be a better person..."

"A lot of what I have become and the certain freedom of thought that I have I owe to you...You pushed as hard as you could to make me think and made me look inside of me and get the tools that were there all along so I could come to terms with the person that I am..."

"Thank you for all your support and positive attitude. You truly are a credit to your profession. I certainly would never have been able to gain the peace of mind I now have if it wasn't for you."

I think you will find me to be caring, approachable, compassionate and easy to talk to. Confidentiality is one of the cornerstones of my business and I strive to create a nurturing atmosphere that you will feel comfortable sharing and talking openly.

Please know that I admire the courage it takes to make that first step in considering therapy and I welcome the opportunity to work with you. I look forward to your call for an appointment.
