Message to clients

Everyone experiences difficult times in their lives. These times can feel overwhelming and one may need help and support to overcome their difficulties and issues. I have dedicated my professional life to helping my clients to feel better and to achieve a deeper understanding of their emotions, behaviors, and choices. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, issues of identity, self worth, relationship difficulties, infertility, postpartum depression and anxiety, parenting issues, and difficulties with transitioning from young adulthood to adulthood. I have worked a lot with people ages 18-26 on the specific issues to that life stage: identity, school and work life adjustment and choices, self esteem and self worth, overall coping skills and stress management. I also have worked a lot with people 26 and above about developing and crafting a healthy life, a positive sense of self, and healthy relationships within their lives. I believe that a good match or fit with a therapist is the starting point of growth. A strong therapeutic connection allows for growth to continue over time and is a healing experience.
