Therapy: It's a Life-Changing Experience!
My specialization is in Mood Disorders (Depression, Bipolar Disorder), Anxiety Disorders, Anger Management, Behavior Problems (Habits, ADHD, Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, etc), Parenting Concerns, and Marriage/Relationship Issues.

I help you to understand why you think, feel, and behave the way you do, to resolve negative feelings, to build on your strengths, and to teach you skills that will enable you to live the way you want to.

For couples and families, this approach is extended to help all involved and to the dynamics of the relationships.

I employ a collaborative, problem-solving, and skill-learning approach. Together we will identify your needs, formulate a plan, and follow a course of therapy that is best suited to your needs.

We will learn from the past, make changes in the present, and work toward your future goals.
