Accepting new clients

I have worked for over 40 years in the field of mental health.
l work with different generations along the life-cycle from young adults to the elderly. I am passionate about helping young adults who are experiencing stress, anxiety and depression as they work towards their career goals, relationships, or just figuring out who they are. I am able to share the wisdom of my lived life experiences and offer different perspectives to adults and seniors as they navigate the many changes that life presents. I am committed to helping couples improve their relationships and use the Gottman method to give them specific tools they can use to build a "sound relationship house".
I work with a number of evidence-based therapies, however the primary indicator of a good therapy experience is the relationship we build. I will work with you to build a safe, trusting and supportive relationship while challenging you to make changes in your life to enhance your well-being.
Emotional pain does not need to lead to suffering. Reaching out for help is the number one protective factor for maintaining well-being when things are difficult. You and I will work hard but also have some laughs along the way.
