Languages Spoken:

In these uncertain times - whether you've become depressed, anxious, or traumatized or are experiencing relationship difficulties - I'm here to help you feel better and get better. In fact, with over 25 years of experience, I want you to know that my only goal is to help you achieve your goals. 

I'd like to share three thoughts as you consider choosing me as your therapist:

(1) Because you're human, I already know that you have traits and experiences that may cause you to feel embarrassed, ashamed, or reluctant to discuss. As a result, I provide a safe place to explore any area that's troubling you.

(2) Therapy is a place for you to talk as much as you want for as long as you want.

(3) I'm happy to answer any questions you have before you begin so that you feel comfortable about starting. Your comfort is of the utmost importance.
