Therapy is about telling the truth. Listening for it, discovering it, and acknowledging it all in the presence of someone who makes it possible because of trust. It's also about creating something new in our lives, with guidance and encouragement. Over the last 25 years, mental health studies consistently reveal that the most significant factor in successful outcomes is the alliance between the therapist and client. Often, the practitioner's credentials, methodology, or theoretical framework are secondary. What is most important is this: When you are ready to begin exploring your truth and using that information towards growth and change, it should be in the presence of someone you trust. Someone who will walk the path with you, asking the questions that guide the way. Someone who sees your strengths, and who can create new hope. I provide couples counseling, teen therapy, family counseling and individual therapy with a calm, interactive style. My clients often say, “I knew right away that I could talk to you.” I am warm and supportive, with a sense of humor. I balance strong intuition with sharp critical thinking skills. Call for an appointment, and if I am the right therapist for you, I’ll look forward to our work together.
Couples counseling is a primary focus and interest of my practice. I provide respectful, practical help by listening to your needs and teaching you how to move through the problem, learning better ways to communicate with one another.
Everyone encounters difficulty at times in their most intimate relationships. Whatever the problem, I will approach you and your unique situation with respect and reassurance that you are not alone in the situation. There is often a great deal of hope with the right guidance and help.
I combine sharp clinical skills with a sense of humor and tremendous respect for everything human, which covers all of it and all of us. I'm "easy to talk to" and I provide a warm, supportive setting. I personalize my approach to meet your needs and help you attain lasting and meaningful results. I welcome your call to set up an initial appointment.
