Individual therapy, sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling” is a process or agreement between an individual and a certified therapist to explore a challenging life issue, belief, behavior, or feeling in a safe and confidential environment. I bring years of experience to this process to help you uncover and resolve life’s issues.
Couples therapy also known as “marriage therapy” is a commitment between a couple and a therapist to work to resolve conflicts, communication issues, trust issues, intimacy concerns, and other difficulties that can erode a relationship.

Traumas can occur as one journeys through life.
