I understand that getting help when you need it is very important but can be a difficult first step. I am a highly qualified, experienced and certified psychotherapist who will work with you in an individual or group setting to help you get through your issues and make changes in your life.

I work with patients, from adolescents to seniors, in one-on-one Individual Therapy as well as in Group Therapy. I have several ongoing groups: Women in their 30s-40s, Senior Women, Men, Gay Men. I also conduct Couples Therapy for those entering into marriage as well as for married couples who are facing problems together.
