"A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dream of."
A Bit About Me
Life periodically presents us with challenges that hinder our ability to cope and, left unaddressed, create inner conflict, and disrupt our joy. Whether you are experiencing personal or professional distress, relationship issue’s, anger management struggles, or just feeling overwhelmed by life, I can help. I have experience treating clients for post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, domestic violence, sexual trauma, family difficulties, and many more issues.
I believe each of us innately possesses the resilience needed to overcome our struggles, we sometimes need help identifying and utilizing that resilience. Therapy is that help. My focus is to help you identify and address your concerns and, using an eclectic approach, tailor treatment to achieve your individual goals so that you can live your best life. My approach is humanistic, client centered, compassionate and empathetic - in tune with my client’s needs.
I have worked over 25 years with clients using "talk therapy" to help them develop strategies to reach their full potential in life. I love what I do and believe there is no obstacle in life that we cannot overcome. I can help you discover the resilience you already possess and utilize it to strengthen your coping mechanisms so that you can genuinely enjoy life.
