Practice Description: I have been working in the field of counseling for over 15 years, helping teens, adults, and families. I would love to help you. My priority would be to make you feel as comfortable as possible by creating a safe place for you to share. My style is very involved and dynamic, warm and engaging. My approach is practical and direct, and my treatment is solution focused. I don't believe in long, drawn out therapy. I allow my clients the space to explore their feelings, but I guide them when necessary. Together we will build upon your strengths and improve the areas of your life in which you feel a change is needed, whether you are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or relationship problems. I am here and I am listening.

In addition to treating individuals (adolescents, teens, and adults), I am also extensively trained and experienced in providing couples therapy. In my treatment of relationships, I often use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, a highly effective (short term therapy) approach to relationship problems.
