During the process of therapy, working through the struggles of life can bring you to a deeper and more meaningful place, not only finding, but also liking who you are. Therapy will help you learn coping skills, setting boundaries, changing perceptions that keep you stuck, finding the connection you want in relationships, building self-esteem, finding release from loss and grief, openness to change, and a willingness to accept your worth and find your authentic voice.

Having a healthy relationship with yourself and others is not always easy. There are times when it can be challenging to embody the positive support you need, rather than that inner critic that is not always helpful. I believe that improving your sense of self-worth and self-esteem through self-acceptance, compassion and appropriate boundaries, with yourself and others, is necessary to maintaining healthy relationships and imperative when working through life stressors that impact your quality of life.

Whether you are struggling with a history of abuse, rejection, loss, chronic pain, low self esteem , or relationship issues, I am here to listen and support you.
I get it, you've tried to change on your own, you've read all the self help books, maybe you've even seen a therapist before; something just isn't working. Now you're ready to really do the work. Maybe you still feel stuck in feelings of shame, anxiety, depression or fear. Living like this can be incredibly draining. I understand that trauma leaves you feeling vulnerable and seeking therapy isn't for the faint of heart. This is why I create a collaborative and transparent environment throughout our work together.

Prior to entering clinical counseling, I served in the U.S. Navy till 1999 & graduated from San Jose State University with an English B.A 2005. The experience, however, of working with students with various challenges -trauma, overlooked mental health issues, abuse, learning disabilities, and family conflicts- would steer me in a different direction. After receiving my Clinical Psychology M.A. from John F. Kennedy University in 2011, I gained experience in crisis counseling, K-12 school-based counseling, college counseling, & residential for dual diagnosis clients before becoming licensed in 2017.

Everyone has a story; everyone has struggles; everyone is fighting their own battle. We all experience some degree of suffering though it and all of us need a safe place. A safe place where we can be who we really are, where we can listen to our own needs, wants, feelings, and beliefs. I create this kind of environment for you by providing validation, empathy, and compassion. I conduct psychotherapy with adults, young children, and adolescents. My style of practice is client-centered. I create an approach tailored to the particular characteristics and needs of each client.

I understand that anxiety, stress and related feelings are not easy to deal with for many people, and sometimes help is needed to get back on track. Whether unhappiness is related to work or relationship issues, loss, change/uncertainty, trauma, or dealing with everyday life, studies have shown that counseling often helps to make positive changes. If you struggle with ongoing stress, excessive worry, self-doubt and low self-esteem, or feelings of anger, sadness, or fear, then give me a call or email. With my 30+ years of experience, I provide a safe and empathic environment to find solutions and healing.

I practice a style of therapy that is both strengths based and solution focused. It is my belief that people have within themselves and the environment the ability and resources to heal and lead meaningful lives. Traumatic life events have the potential to keep individuals feeling stuck. It can prevent us from realizing our full potential and maintaining a healthy self -esteem. During the course of treatment EMDR therapy may be utilized to resolve those issues and facilitate solutions that work best for you based on your own life experience, beliefs and personal strengths.

My passion is helping others through life's ups and down standing along side them in the journey. I have found through therapeutic sessions a common thread, and that is finding and holding on to hope, and the struggle in learning to truly love yourself. This can come from a number of reasons including past trauma, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, early childhood beliefs, and the list goes on. When an individual is comfortable "being in their own skin" they can move forward into healthy relationships and joy in life beginning to feel true love and hope bringing lifetime contentment.

Change is hard! Isn't the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don't have to feel alone. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible. I won’t promise it will be easy (therapy rarely is). But I can promise you, it will be worth it.

Sometimes it can feel like the stressors of life are extra heavy. It can feel like no matter how hard you try to get through this season, there is no way out. Have you missed the old you? Are you feeling sad, stressed, and like no one understands what you're going through? You may be searching for a way to move out of the pain and hurt that have been keeping you from joy. A way to let go of the shame and guilt you have been carrying and learn how to cope with the big and small struggles of life.
