Message to clients

Sometimes your mind is filled with so many thoughts and your emotions feel as though they are about to burst.  These are the times it is so helpful to have someone you can talk to and process all of these thoughts and emotions with.  You do not have to move through life facing these difficult times alone.  As a warm and empathetic cognitive-behavioral psychologist, I believe in a collaborative approach to help clients of all ages develop the skills necessary to increase their social, emotional, and mental wellness so they may work to create a more calm and fulfilling life.
