Things at home are more stressful than ever—trying to find balance in the midst of endless demands is overwhelming. You are doing your best to keep a sense of normalcy, but the whole family is on edge, especially you and your partner. Certain pre-existing dynamics are now magnified and you're turning to unhealthy coping skills. You're feeling angry, resentful and unsupported. There's a part of you that knows you could be better and another part that is so lost. You need some clarity and guidance.

I work with individuals, families and couples. I work from an emotional perspective, which means I help people sort out and understand where their feelings come from. When people are able to make sense of their emotions, they can let go of old wounds and find new feelings that lead to a more positive and compassionate connection with themselves and others. It is my belief that in order for the client to feel better, a therapist has to both understand the client conceptually and be emotionally attuned. I strive to create a strong empathic connection with my clients.

I know it's hard to take that first step. I am a strength-based family-systems-trained therapist who believes, "it is never too late to be what you might have been." I believe that who we are both in and out of relationship is not fixed, and that implementing small steps toward change is both do-able and rewarding. My passion for therapy is grounded in the belief that problems and worry held in isolation grow, whereas voicing them aloud in a safe place and working together with a compassionate and skilled therapist can help reduce them to a manageable size.
