Welcome! I am a clinical social worker with over 30 years experience. I work with older adolescents and adults of all ages. Many of my clients are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and traumatic histories. I also have experience assisting people with many other issues. I see my first job as therapist to be establishing a relationship with you, within which you will feel accepted, comfortable, and safe. I will work to ask good questions, and to assist and empower you in discovering how to create the positive changes you seek.

Areas of interest include past childhood abuse/trauma, mood /anxiety disorders and work/relationship stress.
*NOW OFFERING TELEHEALTH - I’M SORRY BUT MY CASELOAD IS FULL AT THIS TIME * A guiding principle in my work is the belief that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance. Neuroscientific literature supports the curative powers of deep empathic attunement (limbic resonance) and the brain/body's ability to heal.. As such, in addition to attending to you with the same level of respectful presence that I would expect in a therapist, I use both cognitive/emotional and body/mind tools to assist you in your healing. I think you will find me warm, genuine, empathic,and knowledgeable.

I specialize in treating children who have big feelings that come up quick, who can be disrespectful, won't listen, have anxiety, depression and need to learn how to manage their emotions.
I teach EVERYONE- from kids to adults, how to manage difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I teach parents how to help their children regulate their feelings, which in turn helps manage behaviors. My work focuses on the mind and the heart; I focus on reducing unnecessary suffering by learning how to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, so you can overcome life obstacles while respecting your soul's journey. My goal is to pass my skills and knowledge onto parents, adults and children, so you don't need me anymore. I work late afternoons and evenings.

Hello! Whatever your intention for therapy, it is important to find a therapist that makes you feel safe, valued, and understood. I believe that my clients are the true guides to their own happiness and destination, resulting in not one specific formula for healing, but rather utilizing each individual's strengths, needs, and interests. I enjoy establishing a conversational atmosphere that is genuine, empathetic, and validating. Through this, I create a safe and nurturing space for self-discovery, self-growth, and healing. My style draws heavily on empathy and mindfulness as well as solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapies.

In these times of collective difficulty and hibernation, much needed courage is required. When we hear messages dismissing this, it can reduce our trust in what we are perceiving in the world. At this time, are you wanting to initiate change, add motivation or more quiet softness into your life? How do you handle stress? I help purpose-driven people like artists and/or activists. I also love working with recovering addict/alcoholics. Are you wanting or needing to live more from a place of balance? I help clients work through inner blocks, to reconnect their truth; thereby creating a more intentional life.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Sunderland anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Sunderland.
