My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling stuck in your feelings, symptoms, or a situation? Suffering from anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy or sexuality problems? Maybe you and your partner have communication issues? Have you discovered painful patterns in your relationships? Maybe you suffer from insecurity and lack of confidence?
I can help. I have 20 years experience as a therapist and I’m a Certified CBT Therapist (cognitive behavioral therapy) which is the gold standard in mental health for treating anxiety and depression. I’m a Certified Stepfamily Counselor and I also specialize in relationship therapy and sex therapy.
My approach to therapy is to provide a warm and safe environment where your secrets or symptoms are safe with me. In the confidentiality of my office, with a nice hot cup of coffee, we can get to know each other and comfortably figure out the what’s really bothering you and the kind of help you need.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Most therapists, like myself, have had to struggle through life’s hardships before becoming professionals. At the time of my problems, I wished for nothing more than a magic wand to make them go away! But now I’m so glad I had to go through them, because I learned from the pain and I grew. This led me to become a therapist who “gets it”. I have nothing but compassion and empathy for whoever walks through my door, and can quickly connect to what you and others like yourself are going through.

Client Focus (Age)
Billing and Insurance:
I don’t currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for “out of network” benefit coverage
Fees: My fee is $165.00 payable by charge. I also offer a sliding scale for people who can’t pay my full fee due to current world circumstances.
Sliding Scale Available Clinicians who offer sliding scale payment structures may offer lower or reduced fees based on an individual’s ability to pay. Please contact this clinician for more details regarding their fees or sliding scale policy.
