Have you ever experienced a difficulty that left you feeling isolated? Or a relationship that just didn’t make sense? These are all parts of being human but can leave us feeling unsettled, disconnected, confused, and hurt. I genuinely enjoy connecting with people, hearing their stories, and helping them through the hard times. Above all else, I find it important to create a safe space for my clients to feel secure enough to speak openly and show the more vulnerable parts of themselves. I do this by creating an environment of trust based on direct and authentic communication.

I have a deep love for people and desire for people to know and embody their worth. I approach therapy from a belief that healing begins with the therapeutic relationship itself and I will collaborate with you to discover new levels of safety and wholeness. It would be honor to come along side you in this journey. Before counseling I worked as a theatre artist and this informs my belief that healing is a whole body, as well as a creative endeavor. I have a high regard for the sacred and the role of spirituality and will incorporate this as directed by you.

Being happy is essential in life. We are happy when we believe in ourselves, when we exude confidence, when we have a sense of belonging and when we have a sense of purpose. Depression, anxiety, disconnection and low self esteem interrupt the ability to overcome obstacles to happiness. You are not alone, many people suffer in silence. When a person is supported with compassion and empathy being able to talk in a safe place, such as psychotherapy, the person can then begin to feel heard. They can learn how-to manage symptoms of depression and anxiety to etch out a life with acceptance, joy and love. Accepting new patients.

There are times in our lives when we need help restoring our relationships. As a therapist with 30 years of marriage experience, and significant clinical training, I believe working together I can help you reach your goals. As a therapist I have seen that two things seem to be necessary to start the healing process, mercy and empathy. When a person experiences mercy, it opens them up to experiencing empathy for the other. Using Gottman Method Couples therapy as the foundation, I will work together with you to accomplish the restoration of your relationship.
