My Approach to Helping

Are you ready for your life to change? I can guide you through the process of healing from your past. My therapeutic approach is compassionate, respectful, and free of judgment. I offer my clients a supportive, safe space to encourage healing. I offer you hope while teaching you the skills you must master to navigate the challenges of life.

How does psychotherapy help you live a more successful and happy life? At times in life we may react to situations based on past experiences or due to genetic factors, let me share with you ways to cope, change and improve your quality of life.

If you struggle with relationship conflicts, trauma, or sadness, call me today for an appointment. I'm available evenings and weekdays, as well as Saturday mornings.

More Info About My Practice

I've enjoyed working with teens, adults, couples, children, and families, and help my clients manage issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, childhood abuse, life transitions, co-dependency, loss, and grief. My areas of specialization include child and teen support, improving relationship difficulties, reducing depression, and improving self-esteem.

At this time I do not accept insurance, however, I do offer a sliding scale and payment options that make my services available to most people.
I prefer not to use insurance and be required to diagnose my clients with a mental health disorder that will be listed on their health records.

Feel free to give me a call to discuss these options. Currently, I am accepting a discounted rate of $90 per session for children.

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

I enjoy working with individuals struggling with depression and anxiety. Let me guide you to a happier and more fulfilling life.

Working with children and teens, is very rewarding to me. I enjoy building their self-esteem, improving personal relationships, and conquering any social issues due to anxiety.
