The journey to and through parenthood can be a wild ride. So much is changing within you, and maybe life is changing a lot around you, too. It can be hard to build confidence in yourself when you're struggling with anxiety, self-doubt, mom/dad guilt, or picking up the pieces after trauma and loss. There’s so much pressure to be perfect, and to do it all with little to no help. Maybe you compare yourself to others – they got pregnant right away, and I didn’t. They make this look so easy… why am I struggling so much? I just want to feel like myself again. Yep, I see you! It's possible to grow through this, not just go through it.

I currently work with ages 10 and older on presenting concerns such as life transitions, difficulties with adjustments to life experiences, anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship difficulties, and traumatic experiences. I often work with clients who are ready to dig deep into the 'why' behind their symptoms and engage in the 'how' of working through their experiences.

The stresses of family, work, school, and other responsibilities in our lives can add up to create overwhelming stress – additional stresses can also come from messages we hear in the media or through social media platforms. Sometimes, these issues can be easier to manage with a little extra help. When you are ready to reach out, help is available.

Poet Anne Sexton wrote, "That the worst of anyone Can be, finally, An accident of hope." If you're here, you probably feel at your worst. Maybe a traumatic event has left you feeling broken and lost. Perhaps what you've been doing to cope just isn't working anymore, or is doing more harm than good. Whatever your reasons, I'm glad you're thinking about therapy. This process can be scary and takes hard work, and I welcome anyone courageous enough to seek out hope.

We all have a story and some chapters tend to be more difficult to remember and understand than others. I assist others in processing through, coping with, & resolving the ways in which our life experiences are impacting our current state of functioning & well-being. Often times, finding our way feels impossible but my approach is to be a guiding light on your healing journey. Landing onto this page is your first step in a brave, yet perhaps scary new beginning. My approach is practical & often direct, however driven with compassion and non-judgement. I often tailor my sessions with a bit of humor if appropriate.

Feeling exhausted? Overwhelmed? Irritated? Life is hard. Plain and simple. Situations and circumstances so often drive us in a direction we weren't prepared. So many of us have a hard time figuring out what to do in these moments. I have worked with nurses, doctors, educators, mothers, teen girls, college students, persons involved with DHS/DCF, birth & adoptive parents, pregnant women, LGBTQIA persons and so many others who have been through big life events, albeit trauma or otherwise, that have landed them in a place that feels dark and confusing. Anxiety can come in forms that we didn't know existed - until we are there.

I enjoy working with adults and older teens (16+) on issues related to understanding yourself, why you might feel the way you do, and what to do about it. Other areas of interest include helping clients navigate relationships, build healthy communication skills, understand their strengths, and to examine the role our environment as a child can show up in our current lives. I consider myself a process-oriented therapist; meaning I am always looking for themes and patterns in our sessions that might give us insight into what could be helpful to focus on in our time together.
