My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling lost or overwhelmed? Does anxiety, anger or depression well up in you in confusing ways? Is your relationship struggling, or your family experiencing conflict or discord? Therapy can help you sort out your feelings, and find your balance and power once again. I can help you discover what is driving your emotions, and learn healthy ways to express them, to restore joy in your life and harmony in your relationships.

You have within yourself everything you need to heal from your hurts, and live a fulfilling and wholesome life. I hold that truth for you as we embark on a new journey to wellness, relationship harmony and joyful living. Together, we can help you accomplish the goals you set for your life.

I am deeply committed to helping people heal from their wounds and break free from past patterns of emotion and behavior. I help people like you devise wholesome and effective ways of being in relationship - with themselves and others - and to create the healthy, vibrant, and fulfilling life they are searching for! If you struggle with self-esteem issues or low energy, career confusion or underemployment, substance abuse or other behavioral difficulties, I can help you find your center and your happiness again.

In your relationship, you can learn how to communicate more clearly and more lovingly, work through your differences, and ultimately draw closer to one another. Even if there has been infidelity or significant distancing, if you are both willing to learn and grow, your relationship can restore trust, grow in intimacy, and provide you both with the love and support we all long for.

Pre-marital Counseling can help you set a solid foundation in your relationship, which provides lasting benefits to you and your loved one.

My office is a safe haven for discovering who you are, and how to find steady footing for your Life's journey.

I have a certification in Gestalt Therapy, an experiential method that helps us get to the core of the issues, and results in lasting change. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral techniques when fitting, and I bring additional contemporary modalities into our work, to dovetail my methods to your unique needs.

You've taken the first step towards feeling better; perhaps it's time to make a call, and begin your journey to a healthy and happy life!
