Here for You in Your Time of Need

We all need love, meaning and a sense of competence to live with joy. When our selves, our relationships, or our work and passions falter, life can seem bleak. Whether you are coming for help because you have experienced a loss or trauma, because you find yourself feeling anxious, depressed, or distracted, because you are facing life transitions, or because you are uneasy with your patterns in relationships, I will work with you based on what we together agree will be helpful.

Coming to a therapist can feel daunting. Finding the right person for you is important. Initial free telephone consultations are available so that you may explore my services and the sense of "fit" for yourself.
