My Approach to Helping

I offer effective treatment to families, couples, and individuals in a comfortable private practice setting. In providing help, I believe it is important that you participate in identifying the problems that are in need of improvement as well as the specific goals that we embark on achieving together.
I encourage you to embrace change in your life, proactively. Be in charge of your changes. Be proactive instead of reactive. I believe that the discomfort that goes along with change will soon be forgotten, once your goals are achieved. Pain may be unavoidable in life, but suffering is not.
Allow me to embark on that road to change along with you.
