About Dr. Metscher

Inspiring Hope, Growth & Change

As a Clinical Psychologist & Marriage Family Therapist (MFT), I have spent the last 20 years inspiring hope, growth and change for a fulfilling life. Although we may not have  control of every experience in life, I believe  that we do have the power to change our future for the better regardless of our current circumstances.  I believe that everyone wants to feel loved and accepted.  It is my goal to inspire individuals by helping him/her process past and current events that may be hindering their ability to move forward.  Psychotherapy can help to decrease symptoms of worry, sadness, trauma, anger, and grief.   If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
