I have been independently licensed clinician for 11 years, working with adults and adolescents in academic, partial hospital, home-based therapy, and private practice settings. I love helping people increase their authenticity, assertiveness, self esteem, self awareness, and relationship satisfaction. I utilize several theories to inform my practice and am flexible, open-minded, and adapt to what my clients need. In my conversational approach I use sense of humor, kindness and supportive challenging to encourage clients to achieve their aims.

How do we manage all that life throws at us sometimes? The stress of parenting, relationships with our significant other, children and family members are vital to having a meaningful life. Add to this the life stressors of remote and in person work, turmoil within the world, as well as toxic social media, and we are faced with difficult emotional struggles. My years of practice has included work with children, adults and couples who are struggling to find a balanced way of life and happiness. Therapy is a big step, it's a commitment and a connection in working towards a life that has purpose and meaning for each of us.

Psychotherapy doesn't have to be a mysterious process. I try to work openly with my patients to lay out a path for easing their distress and engaging more happily and effectively in their lives. I seek a balance between exploring the past for insights while also working in the present to make life better. I offer an open, compassionate place to explore how memories, thoughts, and emotions affect and limit people in their current experiences. With those insights I support patients in venturing past familiar limitations to live a better life.

“Pain is important: how we evade it, how we succumb to it, how we deal with it, how we transcend it.” ― Audre Lorde. During certain life stages or circumstances, it can be difficult to find the right support or feel understood. These experiences or transitions can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and other mental health symptoms, and sometimes you just need a compassionate ear or fresh perspective. Whether you have experienced a loss, become a first-time parent, or other significant life transition, therapy can be a useful tool to gain coping skills, learn about yourself, and develop new insight in many areas of your life.
