As a practicing licensed clinical psychologist for over 25 years, I know the kind of care and therapeutic approaches that help to relieve the problems that come with life. 


Each session focuses on your journey and how to support your mental health through 

untreated trauma,

impact of chronic stress,


caregiver and family dysfunction,

and unexpected work and life style change.

How does psychotherapy actually work?

Psychotherapy is the application of the science of talk psychology and the art of caring through listening. With each session we work through the complexity of predicaments, unique problems and emotional pain. Because sometimes it takes time to sort through life's choices that got you here, especially when overwhelmed with current dilemmas or unsure of what is actually happening in your life. 



Through our weekly or bi monthly sessions, in a confidential setting, you not only share and understand feelings, thoughts, and behaviors better but explore the impact and influence of whatever is challenging your beliefs, expectations and current life assumptions. Ultimately your create a new perspective from which to build another way to see the same old problem and manage it from a different source of understanding, power, and emotional stamina for greater happiness.   



How long does psychotherapy take before I feel better?

The length of treatment depends on the regularity of visits and what we are trying to impact. Often psychotherapy takes time to get to the heart of the real matter, so it occurs in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. to support psychological safety in discussing the feelings and thoughts that made you decide to start treatment in the first place. It can take as few as 6-8 sessions or closer to 20 or more to move forward.

What should I expect?

Each session  is different. By talking through your feelings and thoughts you make your way to the options particular to your pathway. From your personal history to more recent events, we agree on the best supportive lifestyle strategies to care for you and your family, children, spouse or partner.  Gaining awareness is significant to creating the energy and commitment necessary for the life you want.  Therapy offers freedom to do the work needed to be in a more satisfying relationship with yourself and others.
