I always tell my clients that it is my job to help make life better. Whether you are worrying too much, feeling sad, transitioning from high school to college or one job to another, or deaing with trauma, I will do just that: Help make life better. I have experience with children, adolescents, adults and families and have worked in both the school system and in full-time private practice. My style is practical, and focuses a lot on coping mechanisms and strategies. I have had much success working with my clients on issues such as anxiety, depression, work ethics/motivation, young adult goal setting, self esteem, anger, family dysfunction (present or past), marital therapy, new mom stress, social skills (child and adult(, ADHD, conduct disorder, and school issues. I enjoy assisting in the progress and achievement of attaining goals.
I will meet you where you are, and help you move forward and problem solve successfully. I connect well with my clients; men, women, teens and children from the first phone consultation, and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns. Please also get to know me a little better by visiting my webpage at or my blog on website.
