Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my practice I offer guidance, feedback and support as you identify and resolve problems, improve relationships, gain an increased feeling of empowerment and a more positive self-image and sense of well being. We can work together to uncover your true potential and a life that is worth celebrating. Together we can explore relationship, thought, behavior and communication patterns that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. While we can't change all difficult situations of the past or present, we can work together to better understand the dynamics of those situations, their potentially lasting impact, to help you heal where necessary, and to move forward, empowering you to make changes and resolve challenges in your life. If you are looking for support and guidance in dealing with relationship problems, anxiety, depression, ADHD, or you are ready to identify and achieve new goals, or your are just feeling stuck, please call me to schedule a free phone, or in-person 20 minute consultation.

About My Practice

Office Hours
Afternoons and evenings. Phone, online, and limited Saturday sessions also available.
People come to see me for many reason and I tailor therapy to each person's needs. It is my goal to offer guidance and support as people overcome difficulties, and work toward the change, growth, insight or relationships they desire. I specialize in couples and relationship therapy, as well as the treatment of depression, anxiety and adult ADHD. I help individuals, couples and families transition from where they are today to a life that feels better. Together, we identify their goals, strengths, and resources, as well as the obstacles that might be keeping them stuck. I encourage, challenge and support them as they overcome obstacles, feel less fearful, less stuck, less overwhelmed, and more optimistic, freeing up energy to take more control over their lives and to enjoy life more. I also offer a weekly group for mothers experiencing postpartum anxiety and depression. Mothers share their experiences with other moms and get the support they need.
