I want to let you know identifying you may need/want help is the first step that many do not take so great job!! I specialize in working with adults with depression, anxiety, codependency, stress, and Domestic Violence. My approach is calming and can be laid back when necessary. I am not the expert in your life, I am a supporter. I like to think of myself as a member of your team to see you reach your goal of being a better you.

“What one person has to offer to another, is their own being, nothing more, nothing less” – Ram Dass. My therapeutic approach is a strength-based perspective that focuses on a person’s innate potential rather than pathologies and shortfalls. Consistent with this approach, my role as a therapist lies not in solving problems but in helping clients examine inhibited issues and biases, identify practical solutions to their problems and progress toward deeper wisdom. I have worked with adults, children and families. This experience has included clients of various ethnicities and addressed a range of mental health issues, interpersonal relationship problems, and life transitions. I draw on my experience of 15 years in travel journalism and Corporate America and this understanding helps me support my clients as they navigate the stress and success in their place of work, endure layoffs, reevaluate priorities, and make renewed efforts towards new beginnings. My therapeutic style is adaptive to the individual needs of my clients. I believe the process of change is an ongoing dialogue. This process can be brief or longer term, depending upon the needs of the client. Sometimes I use mindfulness techniques to supplement therapy.
