I've been a licensed clinician for over 18 years with experience working with youth and families as well as adults and couples. Working with people to help them find the inner strength and ability to overcome life obstacles has been my passion for many years. Common feedback is that I have great energy, an effective yet compassionate therapeutic style, help clients reach their goals, and have a personality that's easy to relate to. Areas of specialization include child/adolescent adjustment issues, successfully resolving family conflict, strengthening marriages and relationships, career management, coping with life transitions, building emotional intelligence (including anger management), coping with loss, and helping individuals to build the strategies to successfully manage anxiety, depression, and other mood-related issues.

More Info About My Practice

I primarily use a cognitive-behavioral approach to help individuals overcome life's obstacles, and bring balance to their lives. I also infuse principles of wellness into my work which examines/builds the balance between our intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual selves. My approach always builds on an individual's strengths, is respectful, confidential, empowering, and non-judgmental.
