Everyone encounters challenges in life. You may have successfully navigated past difficulties but some hurdles require extra support. Since you are reading this you have already demonstrated a desire for a helping hand. This degree of self-awareness is commendable. You are taking the first step towards the realization that counseling can help you at this important stage.
Counseling can provide a lasting benefit. It can provide the tools that help overcome life’s hurdles and redirect your energies towards positive results. Counseling can help you recognize and avoid unwanted thoughts, feelings and behavior patterns. I hope to offer new perspectives, insights and useful tools to reduce suffering and enhance quality of life.
Each session is a unique exchange between you and your counselor. Counseling can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue, or longer-term, addressing more complex issues or ongoing personal growth. We will explore and devise a plan that works at your pace. This exploration directs us towards solutions to difficult problems or life transitions.
In our first visit we get to know one another. I will gather information, including your personal and family history and important events you have experienced in your life. Subsequent visits progressively explore the issues that brought you into counseling. Then we seek to identify goals and pathways to reach those goals. Few experiences in life are as personal as your relationship with your counselor.

Each 50 minute session is paid upon conclusion at the rate of $150. Couples counseling starts at $250. Cash, checks and all major credit cards are accepted. I am an out of network provider.
