I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have done individual, couple and family therapy with adults, children, teens, individuals, couples and families with  depression, anxiety, marital issues, substance abuse, parenting, separation, divorce, grief and loss for over 20 years. I worked with terminally ill people and their families with hospice for 17 years and received specialized training in family therapy in graduate school, the Menninger Foundation and in Bowen Systems Theory.

A positive relationship with a therapist is the key to feeling both safe and productive in psychotherapy. If you are wondering whether psychotherapy is for you or whether I would be a good fit for your particular needs, please call me. I would be happy to provide a free phone consultation to discuss your situation and how I might be of help.
