I have practiced therapy since 2000; it has been my life's calling. I feel honored to hear people's stories, concerns, fears, hopes and wishes. I've worked with individuals in community mental health agencies and members of university communities including Vanderbilt University, Cornell University and most recently the University of New Hampshire. Call me today and let's start your journey toward feeling and doing better.
