Taking the first step towards making a change can be the most difficult part, but can lead to total transformation into the person you are meant to be. We all get stuck from time to time in the cycle of thinking about change, and how to best go about it. Whether it is making the first phone call or deciding to make a difficult decision, therapy provides a safe space to express your desire for change and create a plan for action in a judgement-free environment.

The healing process begins with choosing a therapist with whom you are comfortable. You may be overwhelmed by trying to manage problems, conflicts, personal performance, or transitions in your life, and find that the support of family and friends is not sufficient. My approach as a therapist is to provide a safe, supportive, and confidential environment, and to partner with my clients to not only alleviate the presenting symptoms, but also their underlying causes.

Life can be more challenging and painful than we would like it to be. Sometimes we feel stuck and confused, and may have a difficult time figuring out what to do next, or how to make things better. My hope is to support you through these challenging moments, and to help you process and move forward from these sources of pain. I work with a range of clients and issues, but am passionate about issues involving self-esteem, relationship issues, childhood trauma, depression, and anxiety. I gravitate towards working with young adults and teens struggling to navigate the world and looking to develop a stronger sense of self.

Life can be difficult. Often what we envisioned for ourselves is not matching the reality. We feel overwhelmed, sad, angry, we question ourselves and sometimes life itself. This can be lonely. A client and therapist relationship is key to creating a sense of comfort and trust for clients to open up, talk about their situation, discover their true thoughts and feelings, begin to heal, and feel empowered to handle whatever life puts before them.

It is my belief that counseling is not just for the "sick" or "broken" but also for the courageous individuals who are committed to taking the necessary steps to improve their lives mentally, physically, and spiritually. I’m happy to assist and provide guidance on how to navigate through the mental barriers that restrict you from achieving balance and wellness in your life. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I have 20 years of experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction/recovering issues.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction I know the challenges of this lifestyle. You do not have to go to 'rehab' to make lasting changes in your life. Leaving your family, job, school or other responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on the right track. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard...feelings of anxiety, fear, failure, unworthiness, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle on your own is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

I get it. Nothing seems to be enough; you never seem to be enough. You are tired, sad, full of self doubt and self blame. You question your worth, your knowledge, your ability at everything. Bad things have happened; mistakes have been made. You want to move forward but it doesn't feel like anyone, including yourself, believes you can.

I understand that choosing a therapist can be difficult. You want someone you can talk to and be completely open and honest with them, without any fear of judgment. Sometimes in life there are obstacles that may seem overwhelming, and I believe we all have the ability to change, to perceive these challenges as opportunities to grow, make healthier choices, build stronger relationships, and become your best possible self. Together, we can work through these challenges, begin the healing process, and move forward with a renewed sense of self, confidence, and hope for the future.

Yes, we are still in a very stressful period, especially after the holidays. Having someone to talk too in confidence can greatly alleviate worry, anxiety, and depression. I'm a licensed psychologist practicing for over 20+ years with adults and teens! I treat mild/moderate mood disorders, trauma, anxiety, addiction, relationship dysfunction, career/work stress, and family of origin issues. This applies to teens and young adults! I employ talk therapy approaches to alleviate distress, elevate the mood, and increase self-awareness and existing strengths. I can be direct and humorous along the way.

Anger, shame, anxiety, depression, and perfectionism are emotions and traits that can be caused by trauma. Unresolved trauma can negatively affect our current relationships and family dynamics. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you in order to manage trauma-related symptoms and reach a more meaningful state. I utilize a client-centered approach in order to create a safe space for my clients to process unresolved feelings/reactions. Forming a meaningful connection allows us to create a space that welcomes vulnerability, and the therapeutic relationship is just as important as the therapeutic modality.
