With 20 years of experience, I have a broad set of skills to help you find the hope and healing you deserve. I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental environment where we can discuss what is troubling you. We often encounter obstacles in life that seem insurmountable such as illness, jobs, relationships, trauma, addiction, parenting etc, and we lose our direction. Sometimes we live with anxiety, depression, PTSD, or other issues. It takes strength and courage to recognize that maybe we need to reach out for help. I would be happy to assist you in your journey for healing and self-improvement.

I believe wellness is an ongoing journey that is complicated, scary, exciting, and has no specific road. In fact, I believe wellness is a journey that has unexpected twists and turns, where we encounter moments of growth, regression, or stalling. My hope is to join you in those tougher moments, and give you the space to set down all the heavy baggage you might be carrying and work with you to unpack what is weighing you down. I bring my genuine, quirky self to therapy and believe that as tough as it can be, there is plenty of space reserved for laughs and celebration.

I want you to feel supported in session but also know that you will be challenged and tasked with completing goals in between sessions. I greatly enjoy helping my patients reach their own goals to be successful in their life, especially in the areas of social relationships, academics, employment, and self-care.

I understand how difficult sharing life altering memories can be for people. Just ignoring unresolved issues will not make the pain any less. Addressing old hurt, anger, fears, and other emotions will assist in gaining a better sense of self. My goal is to help people with the thoughts that keep them up at night. We can’t change the past, but we can change how we process old grief and allow past trauma to impact our lives.

I view Therapy as a very human process, as well as a very sacred one. As your therapist, my goal is for our conversations to offer a sense of relief and perspective, while helping foster healthy self-exploration and personal growth. On this journey I often discover that specific problems seem to play a recurring role in people's lives. These problems typically undermine the person's confidence, and dampen their enjoyment of life and all of its possibilities.
