Are you experiencing distress?

Needing a safe environment in which to work through this?

Everyone experiences some distress at one time or another, and everyone has different needs and ways of dealing with problems in their life. Sometimes these problems are in specific areas, such as problems in a relationship, grieving a loss, problematic behaviors, or concern about what others think of you. Other times problems can be broader, such as general dissatisfaction with one’s self or one’s life.

Most people can benefit from the support and expertise of a caring professional. My commitment is to help you identify your strengths and use them to more effectively manage your emotional health.

Helping you identify strengths to meet goals and improve emotional health.

A relationship with a therapist can become a safe place in which to address concerns freely because your therapist is not invested in your life in the same way as friends and family. This gives clients room to discuss and explore what is important to them more completely and empowers them to make the necessary choices and adjustments in their lives. In addition to being a safe place to discuss difficult and/or meaningful topics, a clinically trained psychologist has knowledge about how you can address various difficulties in a way that maximizes your chances of success.
