Life is just plain hard sometimes, isn't it? The experience of being human can be so incredibly beautiful, fun and rewarding, but also painful and dark sometimes too. You're going through something challenging right now, and you're looking for a therapist to help you get through it. This isn't an easy thing to do, because dealing with our problems is sometimes a lot harder than just avoiding them and wishing they would go away magically on their own. I am here to help you walk through your pain and develop helpful strategies to cope with life.

Whether small or large, If you're ready to make a change, I am ready to help. Let's talk through the issues that are holding you back and start taking positive action!

Parenting a child or adolescent that is exhibiting challenging behaviors, not meeting developmental milestones, or experiencing distress can feel frustrating and overwhelming. Treatment can help address issues that are impacting functioning at home, school, and in social settings while providing caregivers with strategies to support their child or adolescent. I have experience in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and their caregivers. I specialize in providing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, a treatment shown to be effective in treating many child and adolescent disorders.

The therapeutic process offers knowledge that translates into power to transform, heal and grow. My goal is to use this knowledge and my clinical skills to help individuals overcome the constraints that limit their growth and help provide access to the opportunity for self-fulfillment.

As an experienced psychotherapist, I have assisted many individuals, couples, and families in working through their life challenges. If you are experiencing emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression, loss ,loneliness, and struggles, talking with a therapist is useful. 

My specialties include relationship difficulties and challenging life transitions such as: separation, divorce , career change, and illness. In addition, I work with couples, children of all ages, teens, parents, siblings and grandparents. I provide support for many who go through painful processes. I work with clients to find balance and satisfaction in their life and in their relationships. 

I am dedicated to providing you with a safe and supportive environment where no topics are taboo and all of your thoughts and concerns may be explored. Life transitions may result in depression, stress, anxiety, and anger. If you are feeling upset, confused, alone, or the desire to understand your self better, therapy may be for you.
