Starting therapy is not an easy decision, however, it is an important step toward improving your overall quality of life. I believe that the therapy process will help you gain a deeper sense of awareness & insight into your feelings & behaviors. This usually results in being happier and having more freedom to be yourself & to live your life as you wish. In a compassionate & caring manner I will help you to work through your unresolved issues & to resolve your personal problems. I truly believe that at your innermost level you know the way to help yourself. As a trained & experienced professional, I will be there to help facilitate this process & navigate it with you every step of the way.
My clinical work is devoted to both short & long term psychotherapy with individuals, couples, families, children, teens, & adults. I work with a broad range of concerns including depression, anxiety, loss, divorce, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, stress, behavioral disorders, addictions, victims of domestic violence & other abuse situations. Since I believe that self empowerment is a critical aspect of healing, I assist my clients to empower themselves.
