My Approach to Helping

I am an integrative, interactive and strengths-based psychotherapist who has been offering counseling services to families, parents, children and teens since 1998. As a therapist, I work to help people acquire an understanding of their relationships, better their communication, as well as learn mindful relaxation and awareness, to grasp and better regulate emotions, identify their needs and increase work performance. If you are visiting this site, then you are certainly ready to begin the important step toward change. Allow me to help you to become increasingly successful and effective at achieving that goal. Please visit my website for more information about me and my approach. Contact me today to schedule your free consultation.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy offers a safe environment for self-expression and healing, and provides a perfect venue for gaining emotional skills, improving communication, and developing a keener understanding of oneself and others. This all leads to a more joyful and peaceful way of living.
