Living a life of authenticity is the greatest gift you can give yourself and the world. Living a life that lacks authenticity can affect your relationships, your health, your work, your sense of contentment and peace in a profoundly negative way. It is only when we act from that place that is a true and honest representation of ourselves that we can achieve the highest purpose of our lives and our full potential.
Effective therapy will provide the opportunity for you to embrace your true self and uncover the peace, happiness, and contentment that is only available to those who choose to live with authenticity. Life is a journey and it is meant to be experienced in its completeness. If you would like a compassionate and truthful person to walk with you along this path please call to schedule an appointment.

- Experience in treating:
As a practical, interactive, reality-based therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help patients identify and resolve current problem areas and long-standing emotional and behavioral patterns. With sensitivity and compassion patients are guided to find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
Blending conventional and alternative approaches, a variety of styles and techniques are used in a way that will be most helpful for each patient. Each treatment plan is unique for the person or persons seeking treatment. This may be an individual, couple, parent and child, family or other collaborative group. The patient/patients help create the treatment plan as we work together to identify areas of life that are not functioning in a positive, healthy, and productive manner.
The therapy environment is created and designed to provide support and guidance for the patient/patients. The patient is guided toward exploration and identification of personal and professional goals. The therapuetic alliance for treatment is built and maintained which provides patients a "safe container" in which to process and evaluate their thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and intepretations of self and others. Patients are encouraged and supported as they learn skills to create positive outcomes in their lives and as they build the strengths necessary to confidently face and overcome life's challenges which are inevitable for us all.
