As a USN disabled Veteran, I have learned firsthand that life is filled with many difficult challenges and much is outside of our control but, with the desire to change and hard work, you can overcome traumatic events and live life to its fullest. My focus is on helping individuals, couples, children, and families cope and overcome hardships related to disabilities, interpersonal abuse and sexual trauma, loss and grief, separation and divorce, combat and military trauma, mental illness, and all of our daily life stressors. Life can be tough, but together, we can find positive ways to cope and thrive no matter the challenge.

Therapy can be a wonderful process to examine self, reflect, and grow toward the direction of hope and healing. I offer a safe, supportive and private environment where you may explore and work through life challenges. If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and loss,`the aftermath of trauma, or panic attacks therapy can be an viable source of comfort and healing. At times life gives us more than we can handle and the challenges seem to go beyond our ability to cope. It is at these times when therapy can be most beneficial.

I believe each person has the ability to find the answers within themself and my focus is to help you get to that core part safely and comfortably. Understanding the past that has contributed to the non-functional behavior helps, however, eventually you need to deal with the here-and-now situation that brought you into therapy. This is what helps you to understand what keeps you from achieving what you truly desire.

Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.

Therapy can seem strange from the outside looking in. People often wonder how talking about their life with someone they are just getting to know can help them to better understand themselves, or to find greater peace and fulfillment. I believe that being deeply listened to is a need which everyone shares, and therapy provides an opportunity to experience exactly that. The listening and compassion that a therapist offers opens a space for an exploration of experiences, feelings, and thoughts to invite new ways of seeing, feeling, and thinking. Importantly, therapy also offers a relationship of support, non-judgment, and safety.
