At the heart of meaningful and helpful psychotherapy is a trusting relationship between the client and the therapist.

I start with the idea that you have arrived at this moment with courage and strength which we will build on together and I offer you my experience and expertise without judgment as to the circumstances that bring you to this moment.

We will work together to help you create the change in your life that you are seeking and the contentment that you deserve.
I am committed to upholding the highest ethical standards of the practice of psychology, of providing care that is grounded in science and honors the art in the application of that science.

I provide a comfortable, professional and safe place for clients and their families to begin their healing journey.
