My Approach to Helping

I take it that you are searching for a psychologist, or an effective mental health professional to assist you with some psychological issues that are keeping you from becoming as successful as you want to be. If so, look no further! I can help! I can hep you, if you are looking for assistance to cope with irritating thoughts and feelings, or with behaviors that are now interfering with your daily functioning!

I specialize in couple, family, and relationship issues, using the dynamic Emotionally Focused Therapy {EFT} skills and techniques that espouse a theory of close adult relationships in a way that no other theory does.

I can help you also if you are looking for help with depressions, anxiety, anger management, family conflict, parenting skill, teenage, career, education, and school related issues. My commitment to the helping profession obliges me to see your goal as my primary focus, and work using a wide ranging experience and expertise to help you achieve your goals.

More Info About My Practice

I accept insurance reimbursement for services. If you plan to use insurance reimbursement, please make it known in advance so we can mutually agree on this prior to your first session.
