I help adults overcome depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma to experience a more fulfilling life. You often feel stuck, unable to understand or express your feelings. You long for genuine connection in your relationships but often feel disconnected and unsure. Sometimes it all becomes too much, and you "check out." You want to lash out in frustration but instead withdraw to numb the pain, but you're realizing this just isn't working anymore. You wish you could relax without escaping, make better decisions, express yourself openly, and engage in meaningful relationships. You want to feel free to be yourself.

I believe everyone has unique stories that need to be heard. As I listen with curiosity and support, individuals freely explore their stories, become more open to delving into meanings, and further empowered to define their sense of self that needed to be received. In my work with clients, I integrate evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). As a registered art therapist, I am also aware and appreciative of non-verbal expression and the benefit of using this creative form of expression.

Have you watched your teen struggle with school, relationships or peers? Do you feel like you’re both walking on eggshells, trying not to blow up? This can be very painful. It’s common for teens to struggle navigating social pressure and feeling comfortable being their authentic self. Unfortunately, many teens learn to shut-down, get angry, or find various harmful means to escape. This can lead to depression & anxiety. When left untreated, it can create long-term struggles such as addiction and relationship stress, which is why I also work with adults and couples struggling with substance use or unhealthy relationship patterns.

Relationships are one of the most impactful areas of our lives. If you are experiencing a lot of stress in your relationships, I can imagine the toll it is taking on your overall wellbeing. The quality of our childhood bonds can determine the patterns of our relationships in adulthood. Human connections can improve. With the help of a judgment-free professional and implementation of new skills, relationships can become healing and transformative. I believe that growth is achieved by the pairing of insight and the implementation of tools and techniques that will be learned in psychotherapy.

You know you're capable of peace and happiness, but lately, you're even wondering if that's even true. Whatever is holding you back- ADHD, a strained relationship, a worthiness wound, self-doubt, lack of confidence, or a thorny conflict at work- you're ready NOW for the support and guidance to fix it once and for all.

Working with older children, adolescents, adults, and couples, I strive to help you understand how your early caregiving experiences are impacting your current wellbeing and interpersonal functioning. My goal is to create a secure relationship where you can feel understood and valued and better understand yourself through our work together. In working with young children and their caregivers, I hope to help parents understand how their own parenting impacts their identity as a caregiver as well as helping them understand their child’s needs and develop a deeper connection.

Do you feel worried about living up to your greatest potential before turning 30-something because you're smart, educated, have friends and a career but most often you feel "not good enough," overwhelmed and unsure about managing all of this peak adulting? Do you tend to focus on a negative event such as a romantic rejection or a career upheaval and see yourself as a total failure? Would you like to stop comparing yourself to what you see on social media, stop feeling the stress headaches, tight muscles, scary panic attacks and start taking control of your life and feeling empowered with your personal and career goals?
