Take control and CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or relationship issues?  I can help you solve these issues and greatly improve the quality of your life.  Over 25 years of experience allows me to zero in on what's not working for you and equip you with the tools to change your life.


Anxiety and Depression


If you are not happy in your life, that's your internal GPS alerting you that you're off track and need to make a change.

I am a solution-focused therapist who will give you the feedback and tools to make the changes you want.

Therapy doesn't need to be a lengthy process.  In the first session I can often determine the root issue and give clients a good understanding of what it will take to improve their situation.  Sessions that follow will focus on developing the skills to make these improvements.

Cope better with LIFE STRESSES

Are you paralyzed by life stresses or do you respond to them in unhealthy ways?  Do you find yourself doing things that aren't good for you, but can't seem to stop?  There's a reason for this -- it's how you've learned to react to stress.

I can give you new tools that will change how you think and respond to stress.  We will also look at real changes you can make to reduce or eliminate the source of your stressors.  Using this approach, I have helped many clients to reduce their anxiety, depression and addictive behaviors and greatly improve the quality of their lives.

TRANSFORM Your Relationships

Wouldn't you like to eliminate arguing and power struggles and have a more harmonious relationship with your significant other, your children, your family and friends?  Wouldn't you like to be able to interact and better advocate for yourself with your co-workers and employers?

I can teach you the skills to successfully express yourself, make requests, set boundaries and address sensitive topics in all your relationships.

My Approach

I understand that many clients are looking for feedback and practical solutions for a specific issue.  My direct approach, which focuses on solutions, produces effective results in a short period of time.

Some clients want longer term therapy that involves greater depth and self-reflection.  I am comfortable working either short or long term, depending on your needs.

My approach is effective in treating a wide variety of issues.  However my areas of specialty are relationships, anxiety, depression, addictions, and parenting.

I work with clients of all sexual orientations, lifestyles and cultures.
