Your Issues & Challenges

My services are absolutely private and confidential, so I can’t disclose actual stories of clients’ lives. The examples below represent a few of the varied life situations and circumstances that bring people to my office. The details vary, but our very human struggles have many similarities.

It’s hard for all of us to step outside our comfort zone and look at issues from a new perspective – that’s why it’s sometimes important to have help.

I welcome any of your questions about therapy and how I work.
