ABOUT  THERAPY

​​It is a common experience that we do not clearly understand what is causing the symptoms such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, and fatigue.  So it often takes time to navigate different aspects of your life to discover the roots of the issues. If you are unsure what it is that you are experiencing and what you need to get better, rest assured. I will help you figure it out.

I work with adults individually and family members may be invited to sessions at times when it is deemed favorable to clients' progress.
