My Approach to Helping

If you're reading this, it might be because you're unsure if therapy is the right decision for you. Sometimes we all get stuck on the path toward our goals, and the wrong way of thinking can undermine us. Depression and anxiety can serve as immobilizing roadblocks to the next step. Therapy opens up new possibilities, boosts your energy, and improves self-understanding by helping you express your thoughts and achieve better control over your life.

I'm a caring and skilled therapist, and I'm committed to fostering personal growth for couples, individuals, and families who need help dealing with relationship conflicts, depression, anxiety, destructive choices, and codependency.

More Info About My Practice

I view each client as a unique person who commands respect. I treat my clients objectively, with an open mind, empathy, and acceptance. I offer a comfortable space to openly share, and I believe that the best way to test out a therapist or therapy is to experience therapy yourself. I offer a preliminary $75 session during which we can determine if we're a good fit. Please call or email me with any questions, or to set up a consultation.

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

I am skilled at helping with anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, helping couple's to reconnect, addictions and codependency, and discernment counseling.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
