Professional counseling and life coaching is provided in a warm, confidential environment for adults, couples, adolescents 13 to 18 years of age, and their families. I use a variety of methods tailored to meet your each person's needs. My focus is on listening to your problems, identifying potential areas for change, and helping you find solutions that you can start using right away and well into the future. I have more than 17 year's experience in helping people with marital problems, depression, anxiety, anger issues, and work-related stress.
I enjoy hearing people's life stories and helping them find ways to improve their lives.

I do a clinical interview in the first session to assess what the client is feeling, what the issues are, and to develop treatment goals that meet the client's needs. Sessions focus on exploring feelings, improving communication, managing stress, reducing anxiety or depression, and overcoming obstacles in the client's life. I see teenagers and adults, individuals, couples, and families.

In choosing a therapist, a client should find someone that they feel confortable talking to - as well as someone who is experienced in dealing with the client's problem areas.
Clients should focus on what issues they want to dicuss and work through. They should also consider whether they are willing to make changes in their lives to improve their life satisfaction.
