Are You Struggling with Painful Feelings?
Stuck in a Difficult Situation? I Can Help.
Are you feeling anxious, sad, stressed, or overwhelmed? Are you struggling to parent your child who has ADHD? Are you an emotional eater and would like to learn how to cope another way? If so, I can help you find the solutions to the problems that you are struggling with. You'll find that I have a warm, non-judgmental, and easy style that helps people relax. I will help you actively learn new skills, gain new insights, and experience new ways of relating, all of which will help you FEEL better!

Counseling does not have to take a long time to bring about solutions or change. Often clients find that they feel more hopeful & their lives more manageable after just a few sessions. In a comfortable & supportive atmosphere, my clients are able to achieve the solutions & personal growth they are looking for.

In addition to talk therapy, I also offer Weight Loss & Life Coaching services providing the accountability and motivation you need to meet your personal and professional goals.
My approach is individualized to your needs and personal goals. I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy and other research-based approaches to enhance symptom resolution and self understanding. I believe that people are doing the best they can with the tools they currently have. I will help you discover the unhealthy thoughts and behaviors that sabotage your success, and identify ways to replace them with thoughts and actions that are more productive and more positive for your life. I will empower you to develop a new healthy belief system, thus creating a more satisfying life.

I educate my clients to utilize innovative strategies and capitivate the extrordinary intelligence and power that only comes from within. I am compassionate yet direct, insightful, supportive, and challenging, but most of all, fully committed to my clients' success.
