You don't have to solve life's difficulties and navigate personal changes alone! I will work with you in a collaborative, supportive and safe environment to help you to feel better about yourself and your life. We can identify what is not "working"/problem areas as well as what is "working"/your strengths and move toward the positive changes you would like in your self and your life!
With over 20 years of experience, I have dealt with a broad range of disorders from severe mood disorders to situational stress reactions. I have extensive background in couple/family treatment as well as individual therapy and am flexible in whatever modality meets your needs best.
