Welcome

With warmth and care, I welcome you. Today you are one step closer to a new era, where you feel empowered and liberated to move forward with a confident approach, on a path towards positive growth and well-being.

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is bringing to light your true potential into leading a life that is worth celebrating. While we cannot change difficult situations of the past, or concerns of the future, we can work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. By applying specific therapeutic approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be hindering you from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you are seeking compassionate, non judgmental support and guidance, through a challenging situation, or simply prepared to rise to a new level of living, then I look forward to helping achieve your goals.

Let us begin the journey together!

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

– Edgar A. Guest

Anxiety & Depression

If every waking moment feels like you are suffocating, depression counseling could turn your life around. Clinical Depression and Anxiety are very treatable conditions. Seeking depression treatment early is advisable.

Couples and Marriage Counseling

My goal with couples and marriage counseling is to help you begin resolving issues from your past in order to reduce built up resentments. This and other therapy can open up lines of communication so you can begin to grow.

Personality Disorders

With personality disorders, it is important to find an experienced counselor you can build a stable relationship with. Long term treatment can reduce symptoms and harmful behaviors and help you better manage your emotions.

Family & Elder Mediation

Through a customized yet practical approach, I believe I may serve in helping families communicate more effectively, manage conflicts and strengthen the relationships critical to the well-being of the aging family member.
