Counseling and Therapy
Develop your best self through individual and couples counseling.
Counseling and Life Coaching to enhance personal growth.
Most of us operate on autopilot throughout most of the day, being largely unconscious of what we are doing. Learning to pay attention to what is going on both inside of us and around us is part of what I do.
Issues frequently addressed in my office through thoughtful, active participation:
- Managing anxiety and stress
- Addressing difficult and complex relationship issues
- Working through depression
- Moving through significant life transitions
- Shifting negative family generational patterns
- Working through grief and loss
- Parenting effectiveness
- Resolving issues of work/life balance
- Challenging the dilemma, “I just don’t know what I want to do with my life.”
The goal in all of these is to find meaningful success.
Providing a safe and respectful therapeutic relationship to each and every individual is both a personal commitment and a priority. In our current world that feels so fragmented, the therapeutic relationship can start to form a foundation that builds coherence and clarity of thought for the client. Through reassurance, humor, acceptance, and warmth, we can have conversations that really matter.
Therapy is an invaluable opportunity for people who want to learn more about themselves and the relationships they care about.
Build the bridges.
Connect the dots.
Take the time to be purposeful and intentional in the pursuit of achieving healthy personal and professional goals.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a post-graduate certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. My work is grounded in the family systems orientation, seeking to identify and change negative generational family patterns. Areas of clinical expertise include anxiety, panic disorder, depression, mood disorders, obsessive and compulsive behaviors, trauma, grief and loss, and emotional regulation. The practice of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is incorporated into most of my work.
