My Approach to Helping
"Starting therapy is not an easy decision, however, 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 and insight into your feelings and behaviors. In a compassionate and caring manner I will help you confront and work through unresolved issues and personal problems. I truly believe that at some level you know the way to help yourself. As a trained and experienced professional, I will be there to help facilitate this process and navigate it with you every step of the way.

My clinical work is devoted to both short and long-term psychotherapy with individuals, couples and families. I work with a broad range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, adjustment problems, and life transitions. I have extensive experience with multicultural clientele.

Please contact me to find out more about our being able to work with one another and how I may be able to help you."
