Life brings joy, love, adventures along with some bumps and unexpected curves. Sometimes, it is just too much to sort out and deal with by yourself.
You were born magnificent but possibly no longer believe it. Maybe you fear that you are lacking, unworthy, unlovable, and lost. Often the negative things people say becomes your inner voice. Learn more about yourself and have your inner voice speak with a more honest and positive script.
It takes courage, strength, and wisdom to commit to yourself. Entering counseling may be one of the most important and scariest decisions you make. Talking about yourself and your feeling is brave and a huge step in making your life better.
As a non-judgmental, empathetic, experienced licensed Marriage, Family Therapist, I have knowledge and insight about challenges like yours. My goal is to assist you in your journey.

I provide professional and practical information, techniques, guidance, and support for you to move forward with confidence, gain knowledge and insight, build your self-esteem, and let go of who you were expected to be and welcome who you are.
I work with individual adults, adolescents, children, and couples regarding many issues; my specialties include parenting and co-parenting, Special Needs, anxiety, marital, family and relationship difficulties, divorce, bullying, depression, crises, self-esteem, women's issues, and life transitions.
I am a licensed Marriage, Family Therapist (LMFT), and I have been in private practice for more than 30 years. Prior to that, I taught middle school. I had always wanted to be a therapist; it was the best decision of my life. I go to my office every day excited to see my clients and help them thrive. I accept credit cards and some insurance.
There are no yardsticks to determine whether you should seek therapy. Everyone is unique, reacts differently to life's situations, has a personal story and set of coping skills. If you feel distress and life is taking its toll on your well-being, odds are you would benefit from therapy.
