Managing Anxiety
Whether you are dealing with a specific problem or general anxiety, I can help. I have extensive treatment experience with anxiety disorders and I can make it easier for you to address the habitual anxiety that might be interfering with your daily activities.

Coping With Stress
The structure of our modern world includes so many new challenges that can really become overwhelming. Are you feeling pressure from work-related stress, family issues, insomnia, or life changes? I can help you to navigate your life differently and develop mastery in dealing with both stress and anxiety.

Compulsive Behaviors
Trichotillomania (hair pulling) body focused repetitive behaviors (skin picking, nail biting, nail picking) are all rooted in anxiety and can lead to social isolation and self esteem issues. I've had great success in helping people deal with these issues and learn how to overcome them. 

Substance Abuse
In addition to the inherited traits associated with addiction, alcohol and drug abuse sufferers struggle with both anxiety and depression. I can help you to develop more effective coping skills to manage the day to day struggles that you are facing.

Anger Management
Is your anger leading to problems in your work or personal relationships? I can help you deal with the emotions underneath the anger and establish new ways to handle conflict and create a higher tolerance for frustration.

Couples Counseling
Are you experiencing conflict or difficulty in your relationship? Are you considering divorce or separation? Do things feel a little hopeless, but you're not ready to throw in the towel just yet? Utilizing Imago relationship therapy, a counseling approach developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D, author of "Getting The Love You Want", I can help you to return to connection and heal your relationship with this collaborative form of couples counseling.
