Hello, I understand that looking for a therapist and beginning the therapy can be a difficult process. Taking care of yourself is hard but a necessary choice to feel better. My specialties include Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Divorce and Family Conflict, Couples, and Dual Diagnosis.
I primarily work with adults but I also have experience with children. I am very conservative in regards to referring for medication. I strongly feel that the purpose of treatment is to acquire the skills for a rich and fulfilling life. Please feel free to call or email anytime.
