My Approach to Helping

My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable place in which to explore ways to help your life become more peaceful, more happy and more rewarding. Because no one has the same way of working through problems, I use an eclectic approach to therapy. I try to meet each person where they are and build on their strengths and resources to help them overcome obstacles to personal growth. I have a sub-specialty in treating substance abuse and the families affected by this disease. I work with individuals, couples and families.

More Info About My Practice

I participate with most insurance companies. In addition, I offer a sliding scale fee for those without insurance or who choose not to use their insurance.

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

The key to successful therapy is the relationship that is developed. It is, therefore, important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and safe.
