Are you experiencing difficulties adjusting to separation, divorce, chronic illness, or loss of a loved one? Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship problems that make you feel stuck? We all go through transitions in life, and at times, may need support to feel empowered and whole again. As a therapist, I offer an atmosphere of warmth, empathy, openness, and creativity to help you take control of your life and make meaningful changes. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples, and families during their difficult times and help them to reach their goals toward a healthier life and thrive.
I work with a holistic approach that helps you find a healthy balance between body, mind, and emotion which helps you successfully overcome symptoms related to depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma. Together, we explore your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, fears and doubts, as well as your strengths and desires.
I have experience providing individual and couples therapy as well as leading support and expressive art therapy groups. I work especially with women experiencing life transitions, hypersensitive people, and clients coping with medical illness and cancer diagnoses/treatments. You can find more information in my website and I looking forward to meeting you.

If you've recently gone through a divorce or separation and are struggling to move on, come join us and receive the support you need.

You are not alone. This divorce recovery group offers a unique approach using mindfulness and self-compassion to help you heal, forgive, and assist you in developing personal strength and peace of mind to break out of negative-thinking spirals.
