I help people recognize their strengths as well as the limitations with which they may be struggling. By creating awareness of and challenging their self-limiting beliefs, thinking, and behaviors, I empower clients to make significant changes in their life. This often involves exploring the impact of earlier life experiences on how one currently views oneself, the world, and others, and correcting the distorted thinking and beliefs that often are the product of negative early life experiences. As the individual changes unhelpful thinking patterns and distorted beliefs, he or she can make unlimited positive changes in their life. Change occurs as a result of both insight and new experiences. The counselor-client relationship is also a significant tool for change: the client experiences healing through a non-judgmental, compassionate relationship.

More Info About My Practice

I have over 20 years of experience providing counseling to adults, children, families, and couples. I address a wide range of issues, including those related to relationships, depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, child behavioral difficulties, and parenting. I have specialized training to treat trauma, problem gambling, and adoption issues. I have received training in EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitization, and Reprocessing) to address a wide variety of issues, including trauma, anxiety, phobias, and performance issues.

I am a provider for most major health insurance companies. I provide a sliding fee scale for individuals without insurance coverage.


I provide a complimentary 10 minute telephone consultation.
