Message to clients

I remember how nervous I was walking into my first appointment with a therapist. Would they like me? Find me weird? What questions would they ask? Her demeanor was pleasant and she made it easy for me to start talking about what was on my mind. That's the experience I seek to create for my clients--to make it as comfortable for you as I can.

Having worked as a psychologist for 20+ years, I am experienced in helping people open themselves up to change, to find hope through tough times and figure out what's in their best interest. You may not know exactly what is wrong or maybe you don't know what you want and that's okay because we will figure it out together.

I work best with people who are willing to be curious and willing to get engaged in the process.
