Mental Health is integral to overall health, especially during this COVID-19 crisis.  Our response to emotional and behavioral concerns makes a difference.

You, or perhaps someone close to you, may be struggling with issues that are intractable and now have made the decision to seek professional assistance.  This comes neither easily nor comfortably.  Feelings of apprehension, reluctance, and ambivalence are normal.  Contrary to any self-talk that seeking help is a "sign of weakness", it is just the opposite.  Engaging in therapeutic change is a bold and courageous act.

I welcome hearing from you and will gladly discuss any matter of concern confidentially.  Tele-mental health services are available.
