Life satisfaction is directly linked to how we cope with life's challenges. When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work - at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education, support and practical suggestions for change.

For 35 years I have worked with children, couples, individuals, and families in providing a supportive, educational and safe place to find answers to life's challenges. Separation is the hardest lesson in life and with each separation we experience there is an opportunity to grow and become the best we can be. Separations like divorce, losing a loved one, struggling with work issues, addictions, disconnect from family members or feeling alone in this large and busy world, it will be my privilege to listen, support and provide the counseling, mediation and guidance you may be seeking at this time.

You're using drugs/alcohol too much, and you can't stop. You are lost, miserable and scared, and you want to be found. I offer a compassionate, supportive and direct approach to help you meet your needs and achieve your goals. You're ready to explore your underlying, and probably ancient, beliefs that you hold about yourself and that fuel chronic negative thoughts and behaviors. We will work together to rediscover your authentic self, that person who was somehow left behind and is waiting for you to come back. I provide an eclectic approach. You receive a personal assessment, then focused treatment that best fits you.

Do you spend so much of your energy meeting the needs of others that you end up regularly feeling tired, frustrated or run down? Do you feel like your day is controlled by the demands of other people, rather than your own needs and priorities? It's easy to lose your balance when everything around you seems to require urgent attention, but the truth is that you are the only one who can set the boundaries you need in order to take care of yourself- and the commitments you value the most.

Currently open to new clients, offering secure video or phone sessions only--Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.... My focus in therapy revolves around relationships and support. The most important relationship I speak of is our relationship with ourselves. To be truly whole we benefit from a well developed relationship with ourselves to then be able to have good relationships with others. This comes from learning and honoring our strengths and our limitations. In fact, one's limitations can grow into strengths when addressed from a position of self-care

Therapy is a relationship. It is a conversation. Each one of us is unique, but our problems usually are not. There are solutions. You can get better. Whatever you have to share, I can handle. I may be surprised but never shocked. I am well suited working with people struggling with PTSD, trauma, sexual abuse/assault, depression, anxiety and grief. I am comfortable dealing with uncomfortable situations. I work with people of all ages (teens on up) and from all walks of life. I specialize in working with first responders (police and fire).

I find that individuals and couples come to therapy when they are having difficulties in their lives such as job stress, problems with their teen or adult child, caregiver stress, sexual and communication concerns, coping with illness, disability and/ or chronic pain, and grief. Depression and anxiety are often natural outcomes of struggling with these issues.
