Please contact me via email or phone to set up an appointment. I am sensitive to financial issues and will work with you to come to mutually agreeable fees for therapy sessions.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

First talk to the therapist on the phone and ask whatever questions you want. If you re satisfied with the answers, the next step is to experience the therapist once to see if it is a good fit. You will know how you feel in that session, and trust your feelings.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I honestly believe that vulnerability is a strength. No one who comes to therapy is "weak". An honest expression of pain, anxiety or depression deserves to be acknowledged and understood. And we know that the person also has a lot of strength to be willing to grow and change in a therapy process.
