Providing individual, couples and family consultations.
I pride myself on being more than just someone to listen, but someone to help you look at things a different way.
It all starts with a healthy mind, and a fresh perspective. From there, focusing on your well-being, mental and emotional health, and physical wellness comes into play like never before. You’re taking the first steps on a journey, but you’re not taking them alone.
Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help them deal with. I understand that the patients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I take pride in using my own experience and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with something like depression, or simply wants a different outlook on their life, it’s something to work through together, and by setting up a consultation, we can get started.
Treatment specializations include:
Screening and treatment for Depression and Anxiety
Initial Mental Health Check-up
Mental Health Tune-up
Divorce Support for Kids
Work and Career issues
Stress & Anger Management
Special men’s concerns
As a professional therapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from your life and focus, and begin identifying and practicing things that will make you stronger.
I consider all my patients to be more than just another name, or an appointment. Therapy is meant to be a completely individual experience, and I treat it as such, with deep compassion and absolutely no judgment. Not only do I want to provide support and encouragement for each of my clients, but it’s my goal to offer them practical resources that they can put into practice immediately in their lives. I used both modern approaches and tried and true methods to fit each client’s individual needs with understanding, no matter who they are, or their particular walk of life. Everyone can achieve more personal growth and strength, and it’s an honor to work on that together.

DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Studies suggest that one in four Americans is either depressed or anxious at any given time. This finding makes depression and anxiety two of the most common mental health concerns in the United States. Because some depressed people do become suicidal, this condition should not be taken lightly.
