Thanks so much for visiting my website. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about myself.

My practice builds on the premise that within life’s challenges are opportunities for growth. My focus is to empower clients by providing strategic ways to gain self-awareness, resolve past trauma and learn skills necessary to create successful lives. My goal is to provide a confidential, warm and caring atmosphere within my office practice.

In my practice, I address these challenging issues:

Life transitions
Complicated grief and loss
Marriage and relationships
Self-esteem and personal growth concerns
Personal coaching
The emotional aspects of infertility
