Are you stressed, anxious, depressed, plagued by self-doubt,problematic relationships, or simply feeling that something is missing in your life? Are you stuck in a self-defeating cycle that you can't seem to break? I believe that every person has the right and the potential to live a happy fulfilling life- a life with meaning and purpose, vitality, and positive relationships. If you are not, I invite you to contact me to explore the possibility of working together to help you move towards the life you truly want.
My clients tell me they most appreciate my genuine, nonjudgmental, and compassionate manner. I draw from different modalities and tailor therapy to fit each individual, couple or family's unique style.
I am a provider for many insurance and managed care companies and will file your insurance for you. My office is pleasant and handicapped accessible. I have a passion for my work and it would be an honor to meet with you.
