Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I think people know what would make them happy but don’t know how to make it happen. People stop themselves from moving forward thinking they can’t do or don’t deserve to get their own needs met. I can help you overcome blocks, fears, guilt, depression, and/or self-defeating behaviors so you can free yourself to be happy and more successful. I enjoy and have great success working with individuals and couples (gay, lesbian, straight, intermarried, blended families.) Much stress at work and home is due to relationship challenges. Therapy is particularly helpful with problems at work and in transitional times (engagement, marriage, child birth, empty nest, divorce, illness, and job loss).

My patients like me because I am relaxed, friendly, and helpful. I am professional and experienced which engenders trust and confidence. You should like coming to therapy because it makes a big difference in your life. Even when difficult, therapy is rewarding.
