More Info About My Practice

I've enjoyed working with teens, adults, couples, children, and families, and help my clients manage issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, childhood abuse, life transitions, co-dependency, loss, and grief. My areas of specialization include child and teen support, improving relationship difficulties, reducing depression, and improving self-esteem.

At this time I do not accept insurance, however, I do offer a sliding scale and payment options that make my services available to most people. Feel free to give me a call to discuss these options.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I work with couples helping them to communicate better, resolve any resentments, improve parent skills, sex issues, or money complications. The goal is to increase the connection between the couple which results in more intimacy and love with your partner.

Working with children and teens, is very rewarding to me. I enjoy building their self-esteem, improving personal relationships, and conquering any social issues due to anxiety.
