"Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed.  It means the damage no longer has control over your life"  Unknown

I have been providing therapy for over 20 years to people with a variety of issues in a wide range of life circumstances.  My passion has always been to see people find their own potential and realize that they can be masters of their own change and healing.  I practice from a perspective that often people become stuck in overwhelming problems from their past, current life stressors, or fears of the future and change.  My goal is to help you move forward and be able to have new skills to take with you to apply as needed as you move on with your life. 

The vast majority of my clients who seek therapy from me are looking for support in relationship issues and divorce;  mood issues; current and past trauma; PTSD; anxiety; and general unhappiness. 

I am client and strength based centered and believe each client has their own individual backgrounds, characteristics, needs and problems and work to tailor therapy to the individual.
