I am fluent in ASL, and will utilize it in therapy with clients who are Deaf or HH.
Welcome! I am currently accepting new clients. It may have been hard for you to take this first step in seeking help. I want to ease your mind. I believe that treating the whole person is essential to providing the best care. I provide a multifaceted collaborative approach to treatment and concentrate on an individual strengths. Many times we go through life feeling stuck or in a state of limbo, but when we begin to explore the reasons and underlying issues, it can become clear what exactly is standing between oneself and the goal.

Things have a way of not working out the way they we thought they would. The stories of our lives begin in the families we are given with all of their foibles and experiences. Pages that become chapters of pain, trauma or loss can engulf the one that feels trapped in the narrative. After a plot twist of epic proportions, I left a 16-year career in the intelligence community and began a new chapter. I’ve had to confront the sources, rewrite the narrative, consult the author and find myself in the pages. The refinement process can be a horrific one but in the truth, freedom is found. Together, we can find healing.
