My Approach to Helping

Making sure you are comfortable and at ease from the first contact is a priority and a must. My strengths lie in my ability to make connections and foster a warm relationship, even with those who are apprehensive. This is because of the improvements and benefits seen almost immediately. I know sometimes making that first call and showing up to that first appointment can feel overwhelming. I often find that the first session can feel relieving by the time you have left- that you felt good, understood, and hopeful.

I have been working with children, teens and adults both in the public school system and in a clinical setting for almost 20 years. Using a practical, empathic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, a genuine, authentic style, and a commitment to the process of therapy, people who have met with me have successfully developed coping and social skills, managed eating disordersbody image struggles, tamed and understood their anxieties and depression, increased their self-confidence, understood and resolved family concerns, and so much more. ***I now have associates for more availablity and reduced rates!***

If you are not sure if I can help, call me and feel me out. Check out my website or even send me an email (I reply pretty quickly!).

My Role as a Therapist

I am practical and my strength as a therapist means I will really "get" you- I have yet to meet someone that I could not help move forward.
