My Approach to Helping

Struggling with personal or professional relationships? Questioning where you want your life to take you? Procrastinating? Feeling down or sad? Consider therapy: Self-knowledge is good medicine. Speaking with a therapist in a collaborative relationship can give you a fresh perspective and help you change the way you understand your relationships and life. I am a patient, tolerant, empathic, reliable and responsive person. I bring to my work a sense of humor and a strong desire to stay up-to-date with advances in my field and related health fields. I have the expertise and training to work with individuals and couples across a wide range of concerns. Areas of special experience include anxiety and mood, bipolar and eating disorders, career development, relationships, and pressures that are particular to professional settings.
