We want to be listened to. We want to untangle our lives. We want to understand our emotions. We want more for ourselves. And we want be at peace with our decisions. I work well with couples experiencing relationship roadblocks, adults seeking clarity and fulfillment, college students looking for direction, and adolescents learning to adjust to new challenges. We will form a partnership to find change, peace of mind, well-being, and happiness. I will be there with you for professional guidance and support as you work to improve your life. I have worked with clients from all walks of life.
Regardless of the letters after a therapist's name, if there is no connection, then you may not get the most from your time and effort in therapy. I strive to engage clients from the start and remain a partner on your path forward. My style is conversational and friendly. I blend different approaches as needed to fit your needs as an individual. I can provide high-feedback sessions for busy people who would prefer an up-front approach. I also work with court-ordered domestic violence and anger management clients in a six-month program format.

Psychotherapy doesn't have to be
boring or feel like work. My goal as a therapist is to have a great
conversation with you and try and help make the hard work seem less
difficult, feel less painful, and even sometimes make it fun. I view it
as my responsibility to use my empathy, education, experience,
personality, intelligence, and sense of humor as tools to help you make
your breakthroughs in therapy.
