I work with individuals seeking to improve emotional well-being, life balance and connection to self and others. I have extensive experience supporting adults, teens and families struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse and relational conflict. My approach is warm and collaborative, and I place particular focus on identifying the historical experiences and relationships that shape beliefs and behavior. I work to develop a deep background of their causes and context, understand why they manifest in destructive behavior and/or relational patterns, and then empower you to create healthier associations that make it easier to break these patterns in a safe and constructive manner.

Specialty areas include: * Emotional Wellness * Adolescent Behavioral Issues * Family Therapy/Parenting * Anxiety & Mood Disorders * Performance & Productivity * Trauma & Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) * Divorce * Grief & Loss

In addition to therapy, I offer personal coaching and development for professionals seeking to strengthen emotional well-being, improve mood, and enhance productivity, focus and performance.
