In 35 years of working with individuals, couples, and families I have determined that creating a comfortable place to discuss all things where everyone feels heard and understood is some of the most important work I do. Judgment does not belong in the therapy experience. Acceptance and a motivation to seek understanding and clarity are the most important part of moving into a better space emotionally and mentally.
I believe it is so important for someone to feel that their therapist gets them. Above all else to feel understood and safe are key to healing our mental and emotional selves. Taking time to find the right therapist is the client's right. You will know when you have the right therapeutic relationship when you are comfortable in the reality your therapist is present with you as you seek your path.
Therapy is nothing more than a safe place. Somewhere away from people, jobs, and all the things that cause stress and discomfort where your story, nobody else's, takes priority. It's not about labeling somebody with a diagnosis or being too weak to handle things on your own. It is a partnership with someone who wants to help you to seek answers to questions or some clarity when things feel confusing.

I am fortunate to have worked for 35 years in the mental health profession. I have been a psychologist and therapist for 25 of those years. I love helping those individuals who feel stuck in or feel they want to get to the next level in their life development. I have experience working with adults, teens, seniors, couples, and families. Life can often feel chaotic and overwhelming. If you are struggling with depressed feelings, self-esteem difficulties, relationship issues, career, loss, grief, or anxious emotions I truly believe I can help you find a better, life full of peace, joy, and success.
