Are you feeling stuck, lacking energy, or feeling under the weather more frequently than is beneficial? Then keep reading, because I have something to share with you. The relationships we keep and the events of our lives mold who we are. Sometimes relationships and events are motivational and bring enormous joy to our lives. Other times relationships and events bring about negative emotions. These emotions sometimes can stay with us and create a feeling of stuckness. These emotions may manifest themselves in different ways both emotionally and physically. The focus of my practice and your session with me is to eliminate these negative emotions, free up your energy and ultimately boost your immune system and your productivity.

More Info About My Practice

I am on many insurance panels, including Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Tricare and others, as well as able to accept out-of-network benefits with most insurances. I work with adults, adolescents, couples and families. Contact my office for a free consultation.

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

I specialize in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Grief, Anxiety, Depression and Self-Esteem issues. Past relationships and troubling events can sometimes trigger emotional responses that continue to affect our lives. The focus of my practice is to provide you with relief from these emotional triggers so you can move forward and enjoy life experiences yet to come without being affected by the past.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

There are certain times in our lives where additional support is necessary, for example; taking care of a loved one who can no longer care for themselves, launching a new business, starting in a new school, divorce, marriage or experiencing the death of a loved one. Each of these life changing events comes with a very unique set of challenges and need for support. Reaching out at a time like this can help you to adjust to each challenge and acquire resiliency with each new challenge.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Finding the right connection is key to personal transformation. Making this call has the potential to change your life for the better, right now and going forward. The focus of my practice is to provide you with a therapeutic and educational session designed to provide you with immediate relief.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

A negative therapy experience can be attributed to a few things, the connection between the therapist and the client, the commitment of time and the desired outcome. I utilize modalities designed to be effective within a few sessions and from the moment we meet, we are establishing the desired outcome together. Connection between a client and therapist is very unique to each person and my initial consultation is designed to assure potential clients they have reached the right place.
