You may be wondering why anyone would go to a therapist. After all, everyone has problems, right? Though it is true that we all have problems in some regard, what most don’t realize is that without help, your problems can impact your work or school life, your relationships with your family and friends, your physical health and your overall quality of life. I have vast experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, groups, and families. Whatever it is that is bringing you to therapy will be addressed in an empathetic and thoughtful manner.
My clientele includes those with behavioral and/or substance addiction, families & couples who are interracial and/or interfaith, pregnant and post-partum women, parents of a child or children with autism spectrum disorder, and with those who may have more than one area that they would like to work on (i.e. depression, anxiety, and other difficult issues)
As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), I pride myself on being a therapist who collaborates with clients on how to get from where they are in their lives currently to where they want to be.
