Therapy is an investment of time, money and energy. I believe you need an experienced therapist that can help you feel comfortable, honest and open while working through challenging problems. I’m here to provide that environment.
My goal as a therapist is to assist you in identifying, understanding and resolving the issues or areas in your life that are not working. Each of us is a unique individual and it is my role to bring the information to you in a way that meets your own style and situation. I will show you there is hope and help you see that things do not have to continue the way they are right now. Together we will find ways to help you change and develop better techniques for making good choices and developing life balance.
