About Me & My Practice

Therapy is an intensely personal choice for individuals and for couples.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I know that you are looking for the perfect fit; someone who will connect with you, and listen without judgment. In my practice, I believe you are the "expert" on your life, and it is my privilege to work with you to discover new ways to achieve your emotional goals. I strive to create a collaborative experience for my clients, with active participation on both the part of the therapist and the client.
?
I work from a post-modern perspective, employing mostly Narrative Therapy techniques. I believe that no individual is "the" problem; rather, I believe we all have problems that can be externalized, addressed, and moved beyond."

My areas of expertise include anxiety and depression issues, anger management, communication skills, traditional and non-traditional relationships, LGBT issues, marginalized sexuality, and domestic violence. I also have experience in helping people recover from addictions, especially substance abuse and sexual addiction/compulsion.

If you chose to meet with me, our first session will be focused on getting to know each other. It's imperative for me that you feel comfortable, and if for some reason, at the end of our session, you feel unsure, there is no charge for our meeting. If you decide to continue, we'll build on that initial meeting at a pace that is both beneficial and comfortable for you.

I look forward to meeting you, and to the possibility of working with you to create a brighter tomorrow.
