Initial Consultation

If you are interested in working with me, our first step will be to connect by phone for a brief initial consultation (approximately 5-10 minutes). The goal of this consultation to answer any questions you may have, get a sense of your goals for therapy, and how I may be able to help you reach your goals.

If during the course of our talk I get the sense that you may be better matched for other services, I will let you know and will make appropriate referrals whenever possible.

Please note that the free initial consultation is not  a therapy session.  Again, it is a chance to clarify your goals and assess the fit between your goals and the services I provide. 


I work collaboratively with individuals and couples to provide counseling, support, and hope. I am compassionate in helping others work through areas where they feel stuck. From stopping drinking, adjusting to rough life transitions, to addressing depression, we can work together to create and sustain change.

I help people learn and implement cognitive-behavioral techniques to create and sustain change in their lives. I provide counseling to address the following areas: women's issues, self esteem, cultural issues, depression, anxiety, sexuality, addictions, life transitions, identity, grief, and relationships.I believe in empowering people to own and take charge of their growth, healing, and change in their lives. I work collaboratively to identify areas you would like to address and develop a plan. Hopefully my insight, experience and expertise can be of help to you in your journey.

I provide services to young adults, adults and older adults.
