My Approach to Helping
Has your emotional pain reached a critical point?
Do you feel more anxious and scared lately?
Do you need guidance dealing with a specific issue in your life?
Are you feeling overwhelmed with sadness and loneliness?
I will create a safe and accepting environment where you will feel safe enough to talk so you can begin to have emotions without emotions having control over you. I use an interactive approach with warmth and empathy, I customize each treatment based on the therapeutic needs of the individual. I provide both brief therapy (1-12 sessions) with a very specific focus, as well as long-term therapy to address deeper, underlying issues.
Coming to therapy is often viewed as a weakness. I appreciate how risky and anxiety ridden it can feel to open up to a complete stranger. In my professional experience, coming to therapy requires a great deal of courage and determination, deliberately and consciously facing what is uncomfortable in order to grow is not for all of us.
I believe my extensive training, successful results with patients over the last 27 years and my own self-awareness puts me in an exceptional position to help others Heal & Thrive.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
I know how anxiety provoking it can be to think about talking to someone NEW about you and your life. I have been in that place myself, in fact, I have been frustrated and discouraged by going to therapists where I didn’t feel fully heard or understood, or helped to heal deeper issues.
My job is to fully understand you and your concerns so I can help you achieve your goals and dreams. If you would like to talk before we meet, I will gladly give you a complimentary phone consultation for 20 minutes.
