Welcome

Why struggle with mental anguish when help is available?

I believe that therapy is a gift a person gives themselves. It is a commitment you make to improving your well being – and nothing short of an investment in your own future. To help clients get started, I offer a free initial 15 minute phone consultation to answer any concerns and to help you clearly understand my professional process.

Most likely you are researching this topic because you are considering therapy. Seeking professional help is a sign of courage. It’s important to find a therapist who is easy to talk to, someone who listens carefully in order to fully understand your unique situation and what you are going through.

In my opinion, each of us possesses the emotional intelligence and strength to resolve problems, but sometimes guidance is needed to identify root causes, and not merely treat the “symptoms.” Through our work together, I will invite you to explore your personal needs in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment. The following list is a sample of issues that I have helped clients address:

  • Feelings of depression
  • Fear, anxiety or irritability
  • Anger
  • Obsessive worries
  • Overwhelming stress
  • Difficulties in relationships
  • Feelings of inadequacy
  • Lack of confidence, feeling not understood or loved
  • Loneliness and uncertainty about one’s direction in life
  • Just being unhappy and wondering why

My breadth of experience has enabled me to provide high quality and comprehensive care for more than 27 years. I have been blessed to help many clients reach their goals successfully and in a discreet and confidential manner. I trust the therapeutic process and regard it as a privilege to share in your life story.
