“Any worthwhile conversation starts with listening”. We all benefit from feeling heard. As a clinician, I am able to hold space for clients to process all that they think, feel and have experienced. I help my clients rethink and reframe stories that no longer serve them of how they fit in and move through the world. Some of us are lucky to have friends and family that can support us in this way, but at times we may find ourselves needing more. Having someone who can listen to you free of judgment and provide positive support can be a game changer!

After over 40 years of practicing psychotherapy, I've learned that the quality of the relationship between therapist and client is an incredibly powerful catalyst for personal growth and healing. The core of this unique bond is trust. I focus on building trust through repeated experiences of empathy, heartfelt responses, helpful insights, shared humor, and a readiness to admit and repair mistakes. As the foundation of safety takes hold, we explore the issues that brought you into therapy. We can explore the traumas of the past that deeply disturb your sense of well-being.

ABLE TO DO PHONE SESSIONS. Life can be incredibly lonely and painful at times. My goal is to support you, gently and honestly, towards increased self respect and worthiness. Licensed since 1999, I have vast experience with children, families, and adults. Depression, anxiety, complicated traumas and grief; issues regarding foster care and adoption; sexual abuse, parenting, and/or child welfare are areas I'm well versed in. I'm genuine and compassionate. Most important to you should be finding a therapist with whom you're comfortable. That's not always easy, but it can be well worth your efforts. I'd be honored to be chosen by you.

I am honored to do the work of holding space for individuals and families as they process through past and ongoing traumatic and distressing experiences. Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

Sometimes people need someone to listen in order to hear and then make sense of what's going on in their lives. Someone who can see the big picture of their story, and then help them sift through it so they can heal and walk with a lessened weight on their shoulders. Sometimes people need help seeing how they can take the reigns to make choices and changes so they can start a new future from today forward; empowered with healthier boundaries, communication skills, and ways of viewing themselves and others so they have more peace and less chaos.

I work with teens and young adults trying to navigate the ups and downs of social pressure along with the academic, parental, and societal expectations youth face daily. I help them process their experiences and feelings so they can better communicate with others and advocate for their needs in ways that draw people closer instead of pushing them away. I also work with adults who have been experiencing anxiety while transitioning or adjusting to various life changes - some positive changes can still bring stress, fear, and relationship conflict.

Almost all of us fear our anger, but a nearly equal portion fear our love. This is a problem, since almost no one teaches us how to work with these forces or even what they are (let alone how they relate to each other as both separable and intermingling phenomena). Insofar as we fail to understand these basic facts, we remain fragmented and alienated from our own nature. We all love and hate, often in equal measure, by nature.

Our world seems to be spinning out of control. Troubles we didn't know we had to worry about are now a daily reality. Working from home while homeschooling our sweet (but sometimes difficult) children can increase family stress and parenting guilt. Children may act out with increased defiance, distractibility, anger outburst, clinginess or sleep issues. Teens may withdraw, become moody, lose interest in hobbies or hygiene, or lack hope for the future ("It doesn't matter anyway," "I don't care").
