My work is focused on finding ways to improve quality of life for individuals. I actively work with children, families, couples and adults in helping to support healthier family functioning whether it be in your relationship with your spouse, supporting child/adolescent development and/or academic difficulties, conquering depression or adult ADHD and helping clients to overcome childhood difficulties that continue to create problems in the present.
Therapy is the Art and Science (yes Science!) of assisting others to explore conscious and unconscious attitudes and behaviors that interfere with daily living and optimal functioning. In plain terms this means that something is getting in the way of the happy life that you envision for yourself or someone that you love. It could be that you are struggling to manage a difficult child, living in a marriage that is unsatisfying, struggling with ways to manage Anxiety or Depression or watching a child wrestle with Academic or Self-Esteem issues. In these situations, and many more, therapy has been proven to resolve problems and to increase happiness and life satisfaction levels.
"Psychotherapy as a healing practice and professional service is effective and highly cost efficient. In controlled trials and in clinical practice, psychotherapy results in benefits that markedly exceed those who need services but do not receive therapy. Psychotherapy (is an) evidence based practice. "
- American Psychological Association, 2012
"Research about the effectiveness of counseling indicate that counseling does, in fact, work for a wide range of psychological issues. Distress measurements both subjective and objective indicate that counseling and psychotherapy are effective both in short term and over longer periods of time."

While it is widely known that successful therapy is based on a trusting client/therapist relationship, what many don't realize is that the therapist must also remain current on the most up-to-date methodologies in order to deliver the most effective and time efficient results. The combination of the two are proven to deliver both short and long term benefits to the client seeking lasting change.
