About

Therapy can offer a healing space to foster awareness, insight, and growth.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson. This is my favorite quote and what I try to reinforce when working with my clients. I believe therapy is a healing journey that consists of gaining awareness, insight, and growth. I work with my clients on identifying and setting concrete goals in order to move beyond their obstacles. I concentrate on helping my clients overcome negative thinking patterns while building self-esteem as they navigate life’s challenges. My areas of interests and experience are in: Anxiety, Depression, Stress Reduction and Management, Relationship issues, Women's Issues, overcoming negative thinking patterns, and Substance Use/Co-Occurring disorder related issues. My commitment to working with my clients, is to help my clients learn effective coping skills and techniques. I work with the theoretical approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and have found this approach to be highly successful when working many populations. I offer 15 minute phone consultations, and would appreciate hearing from you, please feel free to contact me. Congratulations on taking this step towards healing. Wishing you much success on your journey!
