I provide psychotherapy and counseling to individuals, couples, and families. Most of my clients seek help for problems such as depression, anxiety, panic,
worry, and anger. Many of my clients struggle with marriage and family difficulties. Many people seek counseling when they are having difficulty adjusting to a life change. The
transition to marriage, parenthood, divorce, a child leaving the family home, disability and end of life provide challenges to all of us, and counseling can help individuals, couples, and families

connecting that you can apply to any problem or area of conflict in your relationship. We will work to identify and change the underlying patterns of interaction that keeps you from having the kind
of love and emotional connection you want.

and work with your thoughts, feelings and behavior so that you not only feel better but also live better. Together, we identify what approach is most effective for you and your particular
