Counseling

Psychotherapy and Remote Coaching

When clients come to me, they’re not looking to be psychoanalyzed, they’re looking for help with a problem; a problem with a relationship, such as with a child or partner, or a problem with how they’re feeling about something specific, or how they’re feeling about their life overall.

Trained in Family Therapy and with extensive experience working with families with children and teens, couples, and individuals, I welcome the opportunity to help you address the challenges you are facing. It’s fundamental to remember that you and your family have amazing strengths. We’ll highlight those strengths and use them to help you address your challenges.

We now live in a very connected world, so regardless of where you live, I can offer you my services and we can work together. Simply send me an email or leave a voice mail and we can set up a time and a way to connect.
