Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, troubled relationships, trauma, and behavior problems can cause tremendous emotional pain for individuals, their families, and friends. As a fully licensed Clinical Psychologist I use my training, experience, empathy, and understanding of how the mind works to help create a safe, nonjudgmental space where a collaborative and therapeutic process can occur. The end result is often a fuller understanding of the origins of emotional distress and a new freedom from unsatisfying patterns of living.
