Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can change until it is faced

No matter what difficulties you are facing, you can overcome them and I will help you! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) which means my training and experience is in individual therapy, couples therapy, and family therapy.

Seeking the support of a psychotherapist is a positive step toward actively addressing and resolving emotions and situations that are troubling you.  Many of my clients start therapy because they are feeling anxious or depressed, burdened by relationship struggles, or overwhelmed by life's demands.  Others utilize the therapy experience as a way to improve personal happiness and explore self-improvement within themselves and with their relationships with others.
No matter what you may be feeling, please know that you, and your life, do have the potential to change.  The therapy process helps change the way you think about challenges, how to respond in relationships, and how you care for yourself.  It's my honor to guide my clients through the therapy process and leading them to a happier life.  Together we can identify your goals, find  solutions, and discover personal strengths.


INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I treat individuals with various issues, my  extensive experience includes treating anxiety and stress, depression and sadness, bipolar disorder, adjustment disorders, relational issues,  low self-esteem, work related issues and life transitions.

We will focus on personal growth, healing, increased insight and self-understanding.  My highest priority is helping you open doors to a new life.  I offer a non-judgmental, compassionate environment to help you heal and take charge of your life.   You will learn techniques that bring you closer to the person you want to be, to help you make decisions, build the relationships you wish to have, and have the life you want to live.

COUPLES THERAPY / MARRIAGE COUNSELING

As a couples therapist I will help you learn effective communication  techniques, master conflict resolution strategies, improve your relationships and make healthy decisions,  You and your partner will learn to solve problems in a healthy and productive manner and learn techniques designed to rediscover happiness and find fulfillment and improve intimacy.  Whether you want to simply resolve differences or need help repairing your relationship after an affair I can help. I realize that every couple is different so I don’t tell you what all couples need, only the particular things that you need.  You deserve a healthy and loving relationship and I will help you make that happen.

Couples therapy is not limited to just marriage counseling.  My work also includes premarital relationships and people  in long-term relationships.  I also have extensive experience treating couples in gay and lesbian relationships.


My specialty includes working with couples in which one member has been diagnosed  with a terminal or chronic illness.  I also work with couples in which a family  member outside of the couple, such as a parent, sibling, or child, has a family member who has been diagnosed with an illness.

Please check my "SERVICES" page to  see a comprehensive list of my services.


FAMILIES

My work with families is focused on helping families in which one member is diagnosed with acute, terminal or chronic medical illness such as cancer.  I specialize in working with adult and adolescent family members of the patient.

I treat families who have difficulties communicating, resolving issues, repairing damaged relationships or navigating family transitions successfully. I will teach you effective communication techniques so you can improve all the relationships in your family.
