Please Note: Only Accepting Online Clients At This Time. I help people cope with the everyday and exceptional challenges of life, experience less suffering, and engage more fully with the present moment. Therapy provides a unique relationship which gives you the opportunity to freely evaluate the thoughts and feelings you carry, particularly those that no longer serve you. My role is to help guide you towards your internal strengths, self-acceptance and trust; it is under these conditions that clients challenge themselves and grow in meaningful ways.
Accepting new clients! Evenings and weekends available! Relationships are hard work, you like other couples might feel stuck, constantly having the same argument with no results. Do you feel lonely, misunderstood, like you and your partner don’t know each other anymore? Perhaps you are experiencing a lack of connection or intimacy, or some big event happened like an affair, long term unemployment, or other event that has caused division in your relationship? Maybe you have been considering divorce/separation for some time and are wanting to make a last ditch effort to repair your relationship?
*Accepting New Clients* I believe that therapy is an opportunity to share the burden and find healthy ways to cope with normal and extraordinary life challenges. My intention and goal are to help lessen the difficulties and suffering you may experience by helping guide you through difficult times. I have a unique passion for working with adolescents; however, I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I have advanced training in trauma, but I am also a generalist and work with many other concerns, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, body image, grief, and loss.
COVERED UNDER MOST INSURANCE PLANS. Is it difficult to cope with anxiety, or depression? With a background of trauma many people are unable to maintain a healthy self-esteem and have satisfaction in their relationships. If these insecurities and fears are not challenged they usually lead to further trauma. Everyone should have the tools to maximize their quality of life and live a life with the peace they deserve. You have grown from your past and you will continue to grow in your future. I offer a warm and welcoming environment, so that you can feel heard and learn tools that will empower you.
