In my psychotherapy practice I offer a safe, supportive place for you to address whatever is keeping you from feeling fully alive. I believe that pain and struggles in life can be compared to being a clay pot in a kiln: it is horribly uncomfortable and you don’t know how long it will last. When you come out, however, you are your true colors, stronger than when you went in, waterproof and beautiful! I work with people on issues relating to parenting, marriage, divorce, and relationships.  


If you think I might be the right therapist for you, I suggest that you either call for a short conversation to see if it feels like a “fit” or that you go ahead and schedule a first session. During that time, we’ll talk about what brings you in and what your goals are.  I’ll share my ideas about how to address the challenges and you’ll be able to ask any questions you’d like. If I’m not the best fit for you, I’m always happy to help you find the therapist who is.  This is about YOU getting to the peaceful, joyful place you might be seeking and finding the perfect fit in a therapist is a good beginning.


There are no requirements about how often you come or how long you stay engaged in therapy.  It’s entirely up to what feels right for you.  I accept cash, check or credit card at the time of service.  I do not work directly with insurance but I can provide a statement for you to submit for reimbursement.  I know it can be uncomfortable making the first call or appointment, but if you do, you may be on the brink of discovering that when you face the challenge, “the gift inside the pain” can make you healthier, stronger and happier.
