Best Fit Psychology


I have twenty years of experience as therapist, and have worked with a diverse range of mental health problems. I have extensive  experience working with depression, anxiety, grief, stress, trauma and relationship issues.  Each client is unique and I find the  "best fit" in therapy to help them achieve their goals. Sometimes people need new skills, help with problem solving, or processing of loss and disturbing memories. I use a variety of treatment approaches.
