My M.A. is in Psychology, with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy. I have worked in various settings and my clients have ranged in age from 8 to 90.

I am a proactive therapist. I know how to listen, but I also provide education, literature, book recommendations, worksheets, and any other resources I feel could benefit you. I draw from many different treatment modalities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe the first step in healing is to understand how your childhood experiences affected you and what was missing. We will look at the survival skills you developed to cope, and how they are now working against you. I will help you develop a more realistic view of yourself and teach you skills you need for reducing anxiety and depression and having a healthier self-esteem. Change is not easy, but it CAN happen. I will give you the support you need along the way.
