Welcome to my Practice!  As an active, engaged, and experienced therapist, I offer personalized psychotherapy for individuals, couples, adolescents, and groups. My approach is versatile, drawing from various therapeutic methods to best serve each client's unique needs. The therapeutic relationship we build together is key to the success of our work.

Individual Therapy

Change isn't easy, but with professional support, it's possible to transform your life. While therapy requires commitment and there are no quick fixes, the process can profoundly alter how you think and feel about your life experiences.

In our sessions, you're invited to express yourself freely. Together, we'll explore your thoughts, feelings, and relationships – including the one that develops between us. This "talking cure" can help you:


Couples Therapy

Many relationships can be revitalized when couples seek professional help during times of crisis. I take pleasure in working with couples, acting as a mediator, translator, and at times, a referee. My role is to advocate for the relationship itself, creating a space where conflicts can be understood and resolved.

Couples therapy often leads to deeper feelings of respect, intimacy, and love. It can help you:

Sometimes psychotherapy is even more effective than medications. Medication lowers the symptoms, or the emotional pain, but it cannot address the real causes.  Psychotherapy can help you to find the strength to change what needs to be changed in your life, or to accept what cannot be changed. It will give you more personal freedom, strengthen or recover your confidence in yourself,  and it can make you feel more alive.

Therapy is a deeply personal journey. It can't undo the past, but it can transform how your past affects you today and how you create your future. If you're ready to begin this journey of self-discovery and growth, I'm here to support you every step of the way.
