Life can be difficult. Often, we are faced with issues and circumstances that can be challenging at best, and most of us were not taught the skills to help us successfully navigate through our experiences. We feel the pressure to please others while forgoing our own needs & feelings. We all want to feel more joy in our lives, but we don't always know how to achieve it.

What is holding you back from living your most fulfilling life? Fears, depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, trauma, childhood wounds still lingering? I am here to lead you on a journey of self discovery and healing. I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide. While I have worked with many different types of clients and mental struggles, I sub-specialize in mind body/ neural circuit disorders such as chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and female chronic pain syndromes. I am fascinated in neuroplasticity, how our brains can change, and how we can heal from these syndromes!

Beginning therapy can be one of the most difficult things we do. It can also be the most rewarding. It is stepping into the unknown and taking an unfamiliar path to a destination that may seem completely out of reach. Therapy is a journey and I will be your travel companion. It is my firm belief that as humans, we just want to be seen and heard. In my practice, I strive to create an environment that is safe, nurturing and most importantly, free of judgement so that I can both see and hear you.

At 37, I finally learned how to heal myself. I went on to get my PhD in Mental Health Counseling, a Hypnotherapy degree, & became an author of self-improvement books. I went on to work in women's in-patient & co-ed out-patient substance abuse facilities, a psychiatric hospital, private practice, the military, low income families, and wrap around services for foster children.

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."- Kierkegaard. Are you feeling stuck and unable to move forward from unhealthy behaviors, maladaptive patterns, negative thoughts and feelings, anxiety or stress? Do you wish your life was more fulfilling, better or different than it is but struggle to make a change? I understand how scary and challenging it can be to take that first step. However, I also believe that achieving an adequate, satisfying, and productive life with the right support is possible. Together we can explore the underlying reasons that are holding you back and identify new ways of coping.

During a time of instability, some sort of consistency helps create a small sense of normal. Establishing a routine is essential, especially during a time of a Pandemic, when our ground has shifted, habits altered or broken. During a time that we are required for social distancing and isolation, we are also forced to slow down. We are provided the choice to find ways to connect and look within, to learn, to adapt and grow. I am providing Zoom confidential conferencing.

People tend to seek help when their lives feel out of balance. Sometimes this can be caused by a new or difficult situation, such as a shift in career plans, family life, or an intimate relationship that leads one to experience feelings of confusion and sadness. Other times we may not be sure where our depression or anxiety stem from at all. As humans, we possess a strong capacity for resilience and self-care, but it is when our regular coping strategies no longer work that we may turn to therapy for new perspectives and outcomes.

But the transformation to your best self is profound, and typically life altering.
