Hello and congratulations! Look for a mental health counselor is a sign of your desire to make positive changes in your life. I offer psychotherapy for individuals (children, adolescents, adults), families, and couples.

You might contact me because: you have lost pleasure in activities you once enjoyed; you feel stressed and overwhelmed, unable to cope; find yourself frequently in tears or angry; chronic pain might prevent you from enjoying a productive and pleasurable life; your important relationships (at school or work, or in families, friendships, or other relationships) are troubled, unsatisfying, or conflicted; you might not be able to take steps to reach your goals; you are addicted to internet, porn or hookup websites; your marriage was rocked by infidelity; or, you might feel lonely and isolated, needing the support of psychotherapy at a challenging and problematic time.

Through client-centered therapy, I offer nonjudgmental caring as we explore past relationships and experiences that might be influencing your current life. Our work together will help you gain insight, make decisions, take action, and be in greater control of your life and relationships.
