Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships.

My commitment to all my clients is to provide empathy, compassion, and curiosity in order to support authentic expression of feelings and needs. The path towards authentic expression is unique to the individual depending on their background, their experience with therapy and their specific therapeutic goals and so I offer various therapeutic interventions to support authentic self expression and healing. I value both the exploration of one's past as well as here and now functioning through mindfulness practice. Using a holistic approach and focusing on the client's strengths and insights, the journey towards wholeness begins.

Life and relationships can be difficult to navigate. I have found it is always easier to know someone is rooting for you to win, to know you have a coach in your corner, a confidant at your side. I see my role as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the same way; a source for receiving encouragement, guidance, and growth. We are all in different stages of the growing process and sometimes it becomes difficult to face it alone. Witnessing client after client prevail with hope, growth, and healing through talk therapy, both personally and in their relationships, reinforces my belief in the practice.

Perhaps you are new to therapy but feel motivated or inspired to heal and work through emotions, conflicts or blockages to living a more fulfilling life. Have you had other therapies but feel “it’s time” to go deeper and explore root causes of patterns and issues?

I specialize in treating clients of all genders with attachment trauma, codependency and addiction, and mood disorders. I also have extensive experience supporting adolescents as they transition into adulthood. Initially, clients may or may not yet have language for what is going on. It may be more like a constellation of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that seem increasingly unsustainable. Isolation and shame often. Whether or not we arrive at a diagnosis, finding the words and reckoning honestly and compassionately with the pain is a large part of the healing work.
