Individual THERAPY

It is inevitable that we all endure periods of difficulty at some point in our lives. It is very common for people to seek out individual therapy for help with stressful life transitions, relationships struggles, or dealing with significant loses.

Common struggles that are addressed in individual therapy include:

                 ◦       grief and loss                                                           self-esteem

                 ◦       depression                                                               self-harm

                 ◦       anxiety and fears                                                     life transitions

                 ◦       trauma & PTSD                                                       personal development

                 ◦       stress & anger management

When we find ourselves in the midst of the storms of life, it becomes extremely difficult to see where the strength to overcome our challenges lies. I am passionate about helping you find your strength. If you are ready for change I can help.


Couples therapy offers the chance to understand how your relationship has come to be what it is,  and to cultivate the change that is needed to transform your relationship into what you desire it to be. I have worked with numerous couples that come in for counseling, expressing a myriad of problems in their relationship, including the following:

        premarital fears

       challenges of having a partner in a public safety career

       major life transitions (new parents, empty nest, caring for an elderly parent, job loss, etc.)

       healing from infidelity


       managing conflict and improving communication

       feeling disconnected

Couples therapy is a worthwhile investment into the future you want to have with your partner. We often become stuck in challenging patterns and ways of relating to our partners. I seek to help you become un-stuck and make the changes, and sometime difficult decisions, in order to move you forward in your relationship and find peace again. If you are ready to take this step in your relationship, I am ready to help.

family therapy

As a family grows and changes, many challenges can occur. While these growing pains are a necessary part of life, they can also cause great suffering and stress. I specialize in treating families struggling with grief and loss issues, parent-child relationship distress, sibling discord, and a multitude of childhood and adolescent crisis. I can also help provide a space to enhance your communication as a family and provide tools to manage life's difficulties.

I specialize in treating families struggling with multiple different issues including:

       grief and loss issues (divorce, empty nest, death of a family member, etc)

       parent-child relationship distress

       child, adolescent, and teen behavioral struggles

       communication difficulties

       crisis management

Each member of your family is important and I guide family therapy under that very belief. Contact me today to discuss how I can help.
