It takes courage and vulnerability to seek therapeutic care. I provide a safe, non-judgmental and supportive environment and work collaboratively with my clients to identify and address specific needs/concerns. My practice model focuses on adults who seek to empower themselves to make changes, explore and address difficult past experiences and ultimately to develop tools to feel more grounded in their lives. Areas of clinical focus include: stress, relational issues, substance use struggles, life transitions, chronic medical issues, caregiver fatigue, grief/bereavement, end of life.

I have 27 years of behavioral health care experience in various clinical settings: outpatient therapy, dual partial hospital and intensive outpatient substance use programs, inpatient psychiatric care, as well as managed care. Specialties include: complicated medical needs, substance use issues, end of life / grief / bereavement.

I also offer case consultation, care planning and advocacy by assisting individuals and families to navigate health care systems, ensuring higher levels of care are accessible and secured. I'm honored to partner with clients, collaborating to improve quality of life, relationships, self care and increased levels of functioning.
