Profession: Professional Counselor/Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: I specialize in working with adults who are experiencing family and relationship difficulties. By providing a warm, trusting and non-judgmental environment wherein a client can feel accepted and understood, I am able to work collaboratively with individuals and couples to identify changes they would like to make and devise strategies for reaching their goals.

I use a person-centered approach to counseling to encourage the development of a safe and supportive relationship. I believe that a respectful and honest relationship between counselor and client forms the basis for effecting lasting change through growth and self-discovery. Together we identify issues that need to be addressed and devise a plan to move forward. My goal is to help my clients develop the tools they need to manage the challenges that come their way.

In my private practice, I see men and women individually, as couples and in groups. Most of my clients are experiencing relationship difficulties with family members and/or in their intimate relationships. I work with many couples who are interested in strengthening their communication skills, are struggling with infidelity and trust issues, or deciding whether to stay or go. I also see those who are in the midst of separation and divorce, as well as those who are remarrying and blending families.

I enjoy working closely with parents on a wide range of issues including new parenthood concerns, discipline techniques, differing parenting styles and balancing home and career. Whether you are looking for help in facing relationship challenges, managing the everyday demands of parenting or confronting more serious and troubling issues, I will help you overcome the obstacles that are interfering with your family life.
