I want to help you reach your full potential, achieve your goals, and better understand yourself. Through the use of empathy and support I will encourage self-reflection and the use of the strengths you already have. I have helped people attain the relationships they desired, achieve job satisfaction, and feel confident about their bodies and their lives. I have also helped many people successfully navigate through familial concerns, life transitions, identity issues, sexuality issues, depression, anxiety and eating disorders. I am here to help you become the person you want to be.

I have been counseling teens and adults for the past ten years. I have helped individuals, couples and families live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Couples Therapy
I help couples to identify their needs within the relationship and figure out ways they can work together to meet those needs. Needs include, but are not limited to, safety, trust, equality, open communication, intimacy and sex.

Family Therapy
In my work with families I recognize that raising teenagers is a tough job, but also can be very rewarding. Conflict often arises in families with teenagers. My role is to help families better understand each other and to work together to solve problems.
