Starting now, you can begin a new chapter toward a more positive direction for yourself – one that is filled with growth, well being, acceptance, and empowerment.
You are worthy of taking time for yourself. In our fast pace world it is not always easy to slow down and dedicate time to working on the issues you or a loved one may be dealing with. Our stressors and challenges make us human. In therapy you will be able to learn new skills and tools to help you manage your specific concerns. I am here to help you focus on your mental, emotional health and wellness.
Do any of these sound familiar to you?
* Dealing with anxiety or depression has become too overwhelming
* Navigating teen issues or young adult life transitions
* Obsessing over thoughts about food, weight gain, body image or over exercising
* Struggling with family conflict and setting boundaries
* Seeking guidance in your new engagement or current relationship
* Healing from a recent relationship break-up
If you or someone you love has been dealing with emotional and/or behavioral problems, it may be time to try counseling. You will be in a comfortable, supportive, and encouraging environment where the focus will be on you – there is no ‘cookie cutter’ way of doing things here. Read more about my practice below.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
I enjoy working collaboratively with clients (individuals, couples and adolescents) who are experiencing anxiety, eating disorders, relationships issues, life transitions and stress management.
Are you feeling ‘stuck’ or ‘overwhelmed’ in your life? I’m here to help! Whether you are looking to learn tools to help you improve your self, your relationship, your family or career, my goal is to help you lead a more balanced and productive lifestyle. I approach my clients with a warm, genuine and caring nature. I will work collaboratively with you and help you reach your goals so that you can use what you learn in counseling in your daily life. I provide a non-judgemental yet direct approach to counseling.
You’re taking the first steps on a journey, but you’re not taking them alone.
I pride myself on being more than just someone to listen, but someone to help you look at things a different way.

As your therapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors as well as identifying and practicing things that will help you toward your goals.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
What can therapy do for me?
There are a variety of individualized benefits that can come from therapy. As your therapist I want to offer a different way of looking at things – perhaps a perspective you haven’t yet considered, which makes it easier to find balance, direction and the solutions in your life.
Here are a few examples of some benefits:
* Gaining a better understanding of yourself
* Identifying your goals and dreams
* Building skills for better communication in relationships
* Learning adaptive coping skills and tools
* Stress management
* Creating new patterns of behavior
* Increasing problem-solving perspective
* Enhancing your self-concept and insight
Therapy isn’t meant to be some kind of ‘quick fix’ where you simply sit back and listen. It is a participatory experience. The more you involve yourself in the process, the better. It’s a practice in everyday living, in which you take what you learn from the session, and apply it to your life.
I offer a complementary 30-minute phone consultation so you can get a sense of whether we will be a good match for therapy. It is also an opportunity for you to get more information about me and my practice.
I do have a limited number of sliding scale appointments available, please contact me for more information. I am happy to provide referrals for other reduced fee counseling in the area.
Our sessions will be approximately 50 minutes long, there is a $165 fee for each session due at the time of service.
I provide all the necessary paperwork for my clients to be reimbursed by their insurance provider. The majority of my clients receive some form of reimbursement from their insurance. Please call your insurance provider to determine your coverage.
If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
Cash, Credit Card or check accepted for payment at the time of service.
