I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

I enjoy working primarily with individuals who have a history of interpersonal violence. I especially feel honored to journey with those navigating their relationships as they work through their trauma history. I recognize how one's racial, cultural, and faith background impact recovery and welcome integrating these components in therapy. I also take time to explore how childhood experiences shape the individual and current relationships. My hope is that, through our time together, you will gain greater insight into yourself, which will contribute to your flourishing and the flourishing of your relationships.

We humans are complicated, influenced by chemistry, genetics, history, and social factors. Some people cruise along without trouble until something upsets the balance and then extra support and direction is needed. Some need a regular touchstone to keep on track, satisfied, or living according to their values. Whatever your needs are, I’m glad you are seeking help. I have 25 years experience in the mental health field. I work collaboratively with clients to find strengths and set the course for healing and solving problems.

Society is full of narratives telling us how we should act or who we should be. A lot of these ideas are not helpful and can make us forget we are capable of being the person we want to be. I believe therapy is a place where we can explore who we truly are and what we are capable of while in a safe nonjudgmental environment. My purpose is not to tell you how to live your life, but to meet you where you are at and work together to reach your goals.

I have over 20 years of experience working with people who suffer with addictions, anxiety, depression, relationship issues and issues of co-dependence. First, I think it is important to establish a connection. That connection is not one sided, but is something felt by both of us. Once connected, we can work together to understand the meaning behind your symptoms such as depression, loss of sleep, over eating,over spending, anger or feelings of worthlessness. What ever they are, your symptoms are alarms telling you that some thing is wrong in your life.

I believe that therapy extends beyond symptom relief; it entails gaining insight into one's self, patterns, and relationship dynamics. In other words, in order to "feel better," I think it is important to uncover how and why these symptoms developed over time. I aspire to help patients obtain this deeper understanding by fostering a sense of security and connectedness, which will allow me to act as a collaborative guide through this exploration. In therapy, I encourage patients to be active participants in their process so as to develop a sense of empowerment leading to relief from current symptoms as well as sustainable change.

I work with people who want to overcome personal obstacles that seem to recur again and again. While it is sometimes possible to face such issues alone, you may reach the point where another set of eyes and ears is necessary. Difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trust, and anger issues, are generally more complicated than they first appear. Together, we will pay close attention to the way you experience yourself and others. Over time, you may begin to see and do things differently and with a greater sense of freedom.
