It takes courage to go to ther­a­py. Who adores wrestling with prob­lems? Have you heard the Span­ish expres­sion, vale la peña? It means the pain is worth it.

Coun­sel­ing is a haven where indi­vid­u­als come to my roomy office to change their habits and lifestyles. I part­ner with you to dis­cov­er your strengths and clar­i­fy your pri­or­i­ties. I am com­pe­tent work­ing with peo­ple who are anx­ious or depressed. I work with young adults to adjust to aca­d­e­m­ic demands in a com­pet­i­tive world. How do you find love? How do you bal­ance social needs with an ardu­ous workload?

In ther­a­py, fam­i­lies come to resolve con­flicts so they lead the life that they long for. Some cou­ples enter ther­a­py to ensure that they are mak­ing the right deci­sion to mar­ry, divorce, or to start a fam­i­ly. Some part­ners find their spouse is too con­trol­ling. Some cou­ples want to kin­dle their love after a dry spell. I spe­cial­ize in cou­ples coun­sel­ing help­ing with anger, affairs, and sud­den changes.

My spe­cial­ty is the treat­ment of trau­ma espe­cial­ly with sur­vivors of vio­lence. Indi­vid­u­als walk in who are in grief or who have unre­solved pain. I enjoy chal­lenges and col­lab­o­ra­tion. In ther­a­py we map out a plan where you find your inner and out­er resources.
