Message to clients

I am committed to providing respect, compassion, understanding, honest feedback, structure and openness to each of my clients in order to provide the optimum conditions for you to achieve your desired outcomes. I believe that life is a journey which is unique for each person. Psychotherapy can be an important tool in helping an individual or family discover their natural ability to heal, to love and to grow.

I focus my practice on crisis intervention, children, adolescents, families, couples, and the transitional stressors which we all encounter at times in our lives, and which, when navigated successfully can turn out to be the most precious gifts we have been given.

I provide a safe space in which my clients can move toward creating a life that is fulfilling and personally successful.
