Message to clients

Please know I offer a secure environment in which to work on your particular obstacles, both practical and psychological. I've found weekly, 45 minute sessions to be most efficient, but we can discuss alternatives based on your schedule and resources.

Finding the right therapist can feel daunting, so I can help you decide if we are a good therapeutic match. Please email me with questions you may have. I also offer a free phone consultation for any prospective client who is interested in working with me.
