When you fell stuck, burdened, scared, sad, or angry as an individual or in your relationship, it's helpful to seek professional help and support. As your therapist I can address whatever issues are creating stumbling blocks for you in your daily life and help you move on. My style is warm, interactive and direct.

In addition to individual and couples counseling, I am an experienced group therapist. Currently I have ongoing biweekly groups available for women in their 30s. My groups meet every other week in the evenings. Preliminary interviews are required prior to joining group. There is no charge for this meeting.

I have 20+ years of experience applying proven assessment and treatment skills to help you find new ways to enjoy your life. I look forward to working with you.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

First talk to the therapist on the phone and ask whatever questions you want. If you are 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. 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. You have a lot of courage to be willing to grow and change in the therapy process.
