Welcome! Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

I offer a highly personalized approach, tailored to each person's individual needs.  I give objective, empathic feedback to help my clients discover and achieve their goals.  Most importantly, I provide a safe, comfortable, supportive environment in which to collaborate with my clients.

Some of the areas in which I specialize include:

  • Eliminating Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety

  • Managing Stress and Increasing Coping Skills 

  • Dealing With Life Transitions Such as Marriage, Having Children, Launching or Changing A Career, Job Loss, Divorce, Retirement, and Aging

My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve past challenges in your life. By applying various, complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. You will learn how to be confident and build self-esteem. 

Whether you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, improving the quality of your relationships, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
