Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

As a DBT trained and integrative medicine practitioner, I have several years of clinical experience working with at risk children, adolescents, and adults in the psychiatric inpatient and outpatient settings. And, it can often be difficult to take the first steps to make change and believe you or child can have a life worth living.

**NOW ACCEPTING AETNA INSURANCE. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant and deliver yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face. Sharing our bodies with another human is hard, being a new mom is hard, and this big change is hard! You are not alone.

If you're searching for a therapist who will encourage you to stay in counseling for years while holding your hand singing camp songs, I suggest you keep looking. But if you prefer a trained clinician whose approach to counseling is goal-oriented and solution-focused, give me a call. You can trust that I will be sensitive and empathetic, but since you are hiring me to do a job, I will be directive in identifying the best approach to solve your problems. I'm qualified to treat a wide variety of issues (see the list below), but the majority of my clinical practice focuses on Relational/Marriage issues as well as Anxiety/Depression.

As we age, I can't help but think that our lives may go off the path we originally intended. While life can be full of many positive changes and events, there may also be experiences in which one may develop feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and/or depression. It can be hard to recognize life isn't always 'perfect' and to determine how and where to give up control. It can be difficult to embrace the good and bad parts of our lives; but it can be just as empowering to develop the next chapter just as you would like it to be. My goal is to help you leap into the unknown, build more authenticity and awareness, and start living a life with more fulfillment.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that struggling does not mean that we are weak, broken, or unworthy- it just means that we could use some extra help. It helps to connect with someone who knows that your story is worth listening to. I want your story to be heard and valued without judgment. By providing a safe environment, I help people develop compassion for how their past and current experiences have impacted them and explore new ways of being, thinking, and feeling. I believe that it is the strength of the therapeutic relationship and the goals you create together which builds meaningful change.
