Licensed Clinical Social Worker Psychotherapy for Adults & Couples

Gender: Female

Languages Spoken:

Sometimes we need to pause, take inventory of the situations, relationships, or behavior patterns that just aren't working so well anymore in order to come up with new endings to the same old stories. I help individual adults to find far more effective ways to address life's difficulties. I also help couples to restore intimacy (or to part amicably, if need be) by teaching effective conflict resolution skills.

Take the first step today. Reach out and interview a therapist--or two, or three--and find out who might be the best fit to help you to begin feeling and functioning better in short order.

Focusing on:
Anxiety/Panic Disorders Couple or Marital Issues Depression Interpersonal Relationships Multicultural Issues Stress
Also serving:
Anger Management Bipolar Disorders Grief/Loss Life Transitions Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder Phobias Sexual Orientation Sexuality Issues
