Message to clients

Therapy is an important and significant decision. It is one of the most important choices a person can make. A therapist must be skilled, empathic, kind and generous. I feel that I am all of these things and am fully committed to each and every patient I see. Our work together is a partnership in which we explore the things that are holding you back and keeping you from enjoying your life. Whether you are suffering from depression or trying to break unhealthy relationship patterns, I will work with you to improve your life and unravel difficult patterns.
