I have the honor of working with people experiencing a wide variety of concerns including: depression; anxiety; grief/loss; life transitions; chronic illness; postpartum depression; sexual abuse; relationship problems; low self-esteem; family of origin; stress and more. My relational approach is based on the belief that within the framework of a trusting relationship with a therapist, clients can explore patterns of behavior and emotions which may relate back to earlier relationships. Once a better understanding of the origins of these patterns is developed, people often find lasting freedom from their hold over their lives.

Welcome. Taking this first step of allowing yourself to even think about getting help can feel daunting. We all encounter periods in our lives that can overwhelm us. Therapy can be the helping hand you need to get your life back on track. As a gentle encouraging guide, I help you open doors and create pathways to what is possible. My clients typically deal with: trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, shame, chronic pain, relationship issues, and other life stressors that inhibit their ability to be present.

We each have unique experiences, personal strengths and challenges that shape how we move throughout the world. Whether recognized or not by others, those of us who live them know the truth; our experiences as racial, sexual, gender or ethnic minorities impact many aspects of our existence. Similarly, individuals who live with seen and unseen disabilities, as well as personal trauma, utilize quiet resilience to cope with challenges that remain invisible to others. Sometimes practical problem -solving contributes to change. Other times, the realities of life cannot be altered, they must be walked through courageously and presently.

I consider it an honor to be allowed entry into someone's life as a therapist. People come to me when some suffering or limitation has opened them up enough to ask a perfect stranger for help. My hope is to provide a safe and respectful place for them to begin to look at the various strands of their lives and stories. Then, as we unravel past and present contributions to the fabric of their lives, we can examine these threads and, with new understanding, weave them back together into a new tapestry which includes fresh possibilities.
