If you feel sad, dissatisfied with your relationships, or too anxious, I can help. I'm a group psychotherapist and counselor. I help you sort through your thoughts and feelings so that you can understand them better, resolve pain from the past, and make powerful choices for your future. Aristotle said, "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." You deserve to know yourself know you is to love you.
Group Therapy is my favorite mode of therapy as clients gain insight into themselves and others in a highly energetic and alive experience. I'm also an Existential Psychotherapist which means that I have an expertise in talking about death and the meaning of life.
I'm a Certified Group Psychotherapist with over 500 hours of group psychotherapy experience and extensive group therapy training.
