Welcome to my Practice

Have you already tried everything you can think of to change your life for the better? Are you tired and frustrated with yourself for making the same mistakes? Many of the clients who work with me have felt this way and have been reluctant to even attempt therapy. My role is to help you view your life in a different way and allow you to discover why you keep repeating the same patterns over and over again. I will not ask you to work harder. I will ask you some tough questions that will provide you with the tools to be successful.
Whether you are coming as an individual, couple or family, we will address how family dynamics are impacting your life. You will learn how patterns have developed and then decide which patterns to keep and which ones to replace. Blaming yourself or others is not helpful and you will learn how to avoid this pitfall.
When you work with me, you will feel supported as a person while simultaneously being challenged about some of your belief systems. We will work at your pace and establish the goals that are important to you. Laughter and humor are always welcome!
