My Approach to Helping

Struggling with a relationship problem or escalating anxiety? You don't have to do this alone. Whether it's your marriage, family relationships, divorce adjustment, or your overall level of anxiety, I can help!

I'm a therapist with more than 20 years experience working with people just like you to create better, more harmonious relationships and to increase overall calm and contentment. We'll work together collaboratively to break down the specifics of your problem, zero in on your strengths, clarify a direction and begin finding a pathway forward.

More Info About My Practice

I have a small, low-traffic, comfortable office suite to protect your confidentiality. I'm located in an easy to find office building at interstate-235 and Valley West Drive, across from Valley High School.

If anonymity is important to you, there are eight floors of varying types of businesses in my office building. My office suite is shared with just one other therapist.

Take time for yourself, and just call or email me to schedule an initial session. I look forward to meeting you!

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

After working for most of my career as a therapist at Catholic Charities, in 2016 I set out to create my own practice. I wanted to provide a relaxing and uplifting environment where people could feel most comfortable to address their challenges. My highest priority is providing high quality services to my clients.

Some people worry they won't know what to talk about or where to start when they come to therapy. Don't worry, I'll guide you. In the first session, we'll get an understanding of who you are, including your important relationships, health, and interests. We'll work to get an understanding of the problem that brings you in, what you'd like to be different in your life, and start talking and thinking together about how to get there.
