Other Specialties

I have 25+ years experience working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, and many of life’s difficult issues and challenges.   I also specialize in:

*Separation & Divorce

*Divorce Coaching

*Couples Therapy

*Stepfamilies

*Alzheimers Disease & Families

*PANDAS (children/teens with acute onset OCD/anxiety).

Professional training aside, I believe it is ultimately the human-to-human contact that makes therapy work. Not every therapist is suited to every client, but when it works, it works!

When in the midst of difficult challenges, it is sometimes hard to see the way out….but making the call (or sending the email) and scheduling the appointment is a first step toward the change you seek!
