We focus on 3 treatment styles. In person sessions on the water, and Telemedicine sessions available from the comfort of your home. We also take a unique approach (generally with adolescents) on a simple outing or walk around the harbor to comfortably engage.

Our Treatment Focus

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. 


Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration of self in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.


I have experience in couples counseling, marriage counseling, divorce, domestic violence, challenges as an adolescent or parenting an adolescent, communication, relaxation techniques, goal setting and achieving, crisis management and passages through life's challenges.


My intention is to guide, assist and support individuals and families at leading a healthier and happier lifestyle, in a supportive and non-judgmental way.


Our treatment focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.

Common client needs

Relationships

 Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with individuals in the relationship and is in a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.    

Substance Abuse

 One of our specialties is in working with individuals, families, and couples affected by substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The effects of substance abuse and addiction can be devastating to individuals and their loved ones, and my goal is to help you navigate through the confusion and pain in order to establish a more fulfilling life. We have years of experience working with a diverse array of clients in residential treatment settings, as well as outpatient levels of care, and bring a wealth of knowledge about the most effective treatment modalities to my private practice.  

 

Adolescents and Transitioning Youth

 Young adults may often find the support of a therapist to be helpful during the transition from adolescence into adulthood, especially if they experience mental health concerns or other difficulties as they become accustomed to new expectations, roles, and responsibilities.     

Individual Therapy is conducted by expert clinicians who perform a thorough clinical assessment. This then determines each clients specific needs. As a result, we create an individualized treatment plan that encompasses a variety of counseling and therapeutic modalities. 

 

Trauma & PTSD

 Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.  

Depression and Anxiety

  Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
