Announcement icon If you are unable to come into my office for any reason, I provide secure phone and video sessions for your convenience.
Are leftover traumas from your past holding you back from living fully? Do you wish you could stop trying to numb out from your negative thoughts, depression, anxiety or addiction? Through therapy, you can learn how to embrace your vulnerabilities and step into the life you want to be living. I am a compassionate and supportive clinical social worker who connects with you to create a safe space to talk about what’s happened to you. Together we’ll begin to understand the impact of trauma and shame while practicing techniques you can use to live a healthier and happier life.
With over 25 years of experience, I customize your therapy to meet your individual needs using a variety of techniques including: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and expressive modalities.
Clients have told me that they leave their first session with a renewed sense of hope. I believe people can overcome their depression and anxiety because I have seen clients do so. To make the first step, simply give me a call or send me an e-mail.

Women's Support and Growth Group

This ongoing woman's group helps women come together, connect, support and achieve their goals. In a safe and nurturing environment you will move beyond what is holding you back.
