If you are looking for a therapist with a unique approach that emphasizes solutions,  I may be the therapist for you.  My approach is best described by Ralph Waldo Emerson-  "An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory."   The bottom line, even if you read no further, is that you want to find solutions to your real life problems.  You want the pain to stop, but you don't know where to start.

I combine Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology and Coaching to address the following:

Are you feeling sad, overwhelmed or hopeless and worried about your future?I
Is  your eating out of control?  
Are you going through separation or divorce?
Is your marriage or relationship in serious trouble?

Are your kids whining, defiant, and out of control?
Is your teen sad, angry, moody and having difficulty managing emotions?
Are you a new mom wondering if you will ever feel "normal" or sane again?
Has your child been diagnosed with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ODD (Oppostional Defiant Disorder)?

Are you tired of being single but scared of intimacy and getting hurt?
Are you struggling with grief, loss and pain and feel hopelessly stuck?
Is your blended family struggling to survive?

Are you overwhelmed with clutter and disorganization but don't know where or how to start?

Do you have migraines and chronic pain?

Therapy can help when life becomes difficult, overwhelming or emotionally painful. Known as "the solution therapist," I use a combination of evidenced based techniques to reduce the symptoms that are causing you pain and find solutions to your problems.
