You're not alone.

I provide a warm, safe, non-judgemental environment in which you can be heard and heal. I've been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 25 years.

Who I Help

I work with individuals, couples, and families struggling with a number of issues.

Depression sufferers free themselves from the clutches of despair, regain hope, and get back in control of their lives with my help.

Anxiety is scary. Whether it's social anxiety or recurrent panic attacks, I can help you restore your calm and peace of mind.

Couples who need a hand. Whether it's your first, second, or third marriage, I can help you and your spouse keep it together. I have a lot of experience working with couples, especially remarried ones, and can help you shield yourselves against the slings and arrows of difficult exes and step-saboteurs.

My Approach to Therapy

I believe in personal therapy in which I help you find your own answers.

My approach is gentle, direct, humanistic, adaptive, and eclectic. I am here for you and explore techniques to best fulfill your needs.

We explore your past to figure out the root causes of your discomfort, figure out how to fix them, and keep them fixed. Having dealt with your past loss, trauma, and disappointments, you make healthier choices, enjoy happier relationships, and grow more fulfilled.
