My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

Do you struggle with balance? No, not the standing on one foot while juggling type of balance, but the type that encompasses finding the “gray area”. “Either I’m successful, or I’m a failure”, “Either I’m good, or I’m bad”, “Either I’m perfect, or I’m worthless”. Sound familiar? Whether it includes food/body image/exercise, parenting, work, or social life, I promise balance exists, you just might need a little help finding it. This is where I can help.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**We know how important self-care and the health of our minds can be, especially in the season in which we have found ourselves. During these moments of uncertainty, new concerns are brought to light and create additional anxieties, fears, and doubts. Sometimes the skills we utilized are no longer enough, and we require additional help navigating our situation. By working together, we can help establish new ways for you to manage the world around you. Sessions can be in-person with precautions or tele-therapy to continue to improve mental and physical health when there isn’t a clear path through.**

Feeling overwhelmed, as if the weight of the world is constantly on your shoulders? Are you just moving day to day with no real direction or purpose? Do you think it’s too late to accomplish something in life? Do things you once loved no longer bring you happiness or peace? Feeling out of touch, no longer connecting well with those you love? Is life not what you thought it would be like at this moment in time? The reality is, life is sometimes hard & uncomfortable; it’s meant to be that way. However, sometimes the uncomfortable nature & hardness of life can be too much to bear on your own. If this is where you are, therapy may help.

I know what it is like to be afraid of your own mind. When we experience trauma it creates change in your life that you have not chosen. When kids experience unwanted change, they behave with the most unloving behaviors. But when we are brave enough to begin the healing process it creates change you do choose. Children find the love that they so desperately need and don’t know how to obtain. As we work together in your healing process, I will meet you where you are, always believing and trusting in you. You know what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, and what experiences have been deeply buried.

When we think of a counselor or sitting down with a therapist there is that taboo attached to people of being psychotic and crazy. Really, it’s not, it’s just sitting down having a conversation. You don’t have to struggle in silence. All great achievements require time. Remember, darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. As we set and talk I will help you find the light that allows you to stop being a prisoner in your past and become the architect of your future.

Hi there, I am here to help you. I work with individuals, couples, and families with struggles ranging from current life issues, relationship struggles, and issues that have been a lifelong battle. Clients often come to me because they have hit the lowest point and have never felt more alone, even after trying therapy countless times before. Many clients have left counseling finding resolution and a drive to live their life to the fullest. My clients have expressed finding healing, feeling equipped to manage life, and having healthier relationships and connections with others that they previously thought weren't possible.

Anxiety and OCD can be brutal and those who suffer often feel as if their life is being held hostage by their worry, panic, obsessions, and compulsions. What often starts out as a helpful and normal way of reacting to stressful and scary situations can transform into a debilitating condition. As an anxiety and OCD specialist, I work with clients to help them transform the way they manage their anxiety and overcome their symptoms so that they can reclaim their life, taking it back from the clutches of OCD and anxiety.
