Happy Couple

We all have the ability to make profound changes that will allow us to lead happy fulfilling lives, have close meaningful relationships and achieve levels of success we never thought possible.

Welcome, and congratulations on taking the first step toward making that important change. Whether your goal is to change self-defeating behaviors and thoughts, or to reconnect with a partner and enhance a relationship, counseling can address many areas of your life.
My goal as a therapist is to help you gain insight into the source of your distress AND provide the tools and resources for you to change.
I use humor, compassion and encouragement. I’m direct but not judgmental. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I aim to empower my clients to take control of their lives.
