Life is full of ups and down. The ups are great, and at times, the downs can leave you feeling stuck. Sometimes people need someone to help them sort out the chaos, or just be a non-judgmental, listening ear. I believe all people are naturally good, performing their best when they feel their best.

It is common for us to experience life challenges and to seek assistance navigating these transitions. My goal as a therapist is to understand your worldview, empower and support you. However, in working together, it is important that you appreciate that we are in a collaborative relationship and that you are the expert. Our collaborative work of inner healing encompasses moving from a place of immense level of anxiety to acting and interacting from a place of true self. I value our work together to be straightforward, empathetic, and meaningful.

Sometimes it is hard for parents and children to understand each other's needs, wants and desires within the family relationship at any age, let alone effectively communicate our feelings in kind, respectful language without hurting others. As adults we may worry about how we look and seem to others, or have some other underlying issue we aren't comfortable sharing with others or may struggle to build deeper meaningful relationships to build our support network. Most clients have struggles fitting in socially, have relationship problems at home or just need someone besides a partner, or parent to talk to.

Trauma can lead to disrupted neurodevelopment, social-emotional and cognitive impairment, an increase in risky behaviors, disease, disability, social problems, and even early death. Trauma also disrupts families; constant conflict, deep emotional wounds, lack of empathy, and violence. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP) and a Multicultural and Social Justice advocate.

Asking for help with a problem does not come easily to everyone. Many people find themselves "stuck" or needing assistance with issues in the emotional, mental, or social areas of life that are holding them back from their full potential. My philosophy as a therapist is to be that individual in someone's life who helps them achieve that potential- at their pace, and by their own standard. I strive to offer assistance to the family, couple, or individual who comes in for therapy in a collaborative manner, and to work towards goals with a unique approach to their situation.

I believe healing comes from listening, empowerment, self-awareness, advocacy, and collaboration. Chronic illness and disability can limit an individuals quality of life in many ways: (1) employment, (2) school, (3) relationships, (4) physical, and (5) mental health. A disability does not define a person’s identity, or limit functioning. If you are living a life filled with stress, anxiety, or depression from a disability or chronic illness know that you can take back control of your life. You are the narrator of your own story. Let’s rewrite it together!

NOT ACCEPTING CLIENTS AT THIS TIME----I believe therapy is a place for healing reflection and active transformation. Everyone experiences hardships and challenges in life. This can lead individuals and families to feel stuck, stressed, anxious and depressed. Traumatic experiences can alter the way you view the world and attempt to hijack your life, but you don’t have to stay this way. I believe everyone holds the key to their own healing—I empower you to find it. Therapy can enhance your life as well as relationships with others, and it can offer you relief and support through difficult times.
