I understand that it’s not always easy to make a decision about a psychotherapist simply by reading a website. To determine if I would be a good fit for you, please feel free to contact me directly by phone or email. Since “good chemistry” is important when working with a therapist, I offer a free telephone consultation to determine if our personalities and approaches mesh and if I am the one who can give you optimal results.

If you are having an emergency, please call 911. Do not email me. If you are not sure if you are having an emergency, call 911 and discuss it with them. They will help to decide if you need immediate treatment.
