Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Perhaps, you are feeling down or struggling with daily stressors? Are you regretting the past or worrying about the future? Or maybe, you are wanting to learn new skills to heal and grow in relationship with self and others? Relationships can be very difficult, whether with significant others, family, friends, co-workers, or others. Effective communication and healthy boundaries can help to create peace and freedom in one's life. My experience includes many years working with individuals, couples, and families who are facing various difficulties in life.
Do you easily get over stimulated? Do people say you are too sensitive? Do you think and feel deeply? Are you aware of things around you that others are not? Does it take you longer to make a decision and then you worry if you have made the right decision? These things can be both good things and a problem at times. At times they can lead to depression or anxiety and other times they can be your greatest assets. Maybe you don't feel that these things could ever be your greatest asset so you need some help to realize that goal.
I am a Licensed therapist with multiple years of experience in addictions, mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, couples and family work and personal growth therapy. I am especially adept in experiential and psychodrama therapy
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, LMHC, SEP
At times it feels like life is tossing you around. Whether it's something that happened in your past, current circumstances that feel impossible to overcome, or fears of the future, I believe it's possible to heal and to grow with resilience. Imagine what it would be like to feel happy again, to recognize the person looking back at you in the mirror, and to feel like you are in control of your life. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to be heard and validated, challenged and empowered - a space to show up exactly as you are.
People come into counseling for many reasons. You may be overcome with insecurity, paralyzed with anxiety, or chronically depressed. Perhaps your relationships are a mess, your life feels out of control. You cut yourself to feel something other than emptiness, you drink to numb your pain. Life doesn't have to be this hard. There is hope and you can heal. You already have everything inside of you that you need in order to heal but somehow you have lost track of this truth. Life has led you away from your innate ability to heal. Counseling can help you reconnect with this ability and restore balance and peace to your life.
I believe we all have the ability to change and grow. Without support and coping skills, life and its stressors can get in the way of, rather than enhance personal growth. When that happens, we often begin to compare ourselves to others, fear change and challenges, experience unrewarding relationships, numb our emotions, and most painful of all, begin to believe that we are alone in our struggles. You don't have to struggle alone. In our work together, I will help you discover and explore your true self and look clearly at your life, and its challenges and opportunities.

You’re looking for help because you’re pretty sure your past is intruding on your present. You’re reacting in ways that aren’t helpful. Your situation would probably be difficult for anyone, but you’re pretty sure that your past is making it more difficult than it needs to be. You can see where this is going, and it’s a trip you’d rather not take. But it seems like no matter how hard you try you end up doing the same things again and again and again… You CAN stop. You can give up the wrong relationships, the destructive patterns, the addictions, the anger, the trauma from your past.
