I am in my 21st year as a psychotherapist.
What to expect:
Respect and Support - Most people find my straightforward approach helpful and solution-focused.
Flexible scheduling- If you do not see your favorite time on my calendar, just reach out and let me know!
Expertise - I have seen the impossible happen in person after person - 20,000 client hours! I believe people can achieve incredible things despite impossible odds because I've been there when it happens.
Three questions I'm known to ask people in therapy:
1. If you had your financial life at 100% satisfaction, what would be left to do for you to be your ideal self?
2. Why? (no matter what people say, I tend to follow by asking, "why"?)
3. If when you awake in the morning, everything was changed for the better, what is the first thing you'd notice?
About 60% of my practice involves work with adult survivors of sexual trauma, addictions (drugs, alcohol, sex) and couples recovering from affairs. I also offer traditional general mental health counseling for depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, particularly post-hospitalization or adults who are noticing symptoms for the first time. Other services include pre-surgery psych evals and group therapy.

Thank you for being there when I’m worried or happy at times you the only one listen to me when I cry
