Everyone has a different reason for seeking therapy – difficulty in a relationship, symptoms of depression or anxiety, a personal crisis, stress, loss, difficulties at work or home, parenting challenges, and many others. I will listen intently to why you sought treatment and together we will develop specific short and long term goals that work for you. My style is engaging and interactive as well as warm and compassionate. With the utmost care and respect for you as an individual or couple, I will help you forge new ways to feel better about yourself and your life.
Years ago, when I was an intern at a college counseling center, I realized the kind of psychologist I wanted to become. One of my clients was a young woman struggling with symptoms of depression and having difficulties with her boyfriend. Over time, she learned to trust me and open up about some very sensitive and private issues. She brought her boyfriend to several sessions and their relationship shifted to become more loving and respectful of each other. She harnessed her strengths and began to feel better and live her life more fully. I knew then that I wanted to help others do the same.
