Psychotherapy is a unique and personal engagement that aims to give a person the brave option to not just accept life on the terms it seems to have handed them.

For over 20 years, I have worked to assist others to be able to name, focus on and change numerous dilemmas of life.

Among those dilemmas: substance and behavioral addictions, childhood and sexual trauma and/or neglect, compulsivity and impulsivity issues, depression, anxiety, relationship strife, grief/loss, internalized fear of intimacy, sexual dysfunction, and emotional communication for individuals and couples.

A consult may require more than one session to determine needs. If the need for therapy is determined and there is an agreement to work together, frequency of sessions will be discussed and session times will be determined.

I provide the following services:

Short Term Psychotherapy
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
Group Therapy
Couples Therapy
Corporate Consultations

Not only is creating a safe, supportive environment important to me, but also knowing how to address the issues that you may be facing as an individual or as a couple.

Short and Long-Term Treatment

The majority of my work has been with adults, young adults, and teenagers who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, drug and alcohol use, or post-traumatic stress reactions. These clients have often begun working with me after having engaged in long-term struggles that have left them confused and frustrated. This might be you.

I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how we can work together, whether you are an adult, young adult, or adolescent who is not living the way you would like. Therapy is learning how to trust, both yourself and others. I would like to facilitate that trust.
