I'm also a mother and have an affinity for working with children, adolescents, couples, and families on communication, parenting, and other issues.
Are you feeling stuck? Hopeless? Unsure where to turn? We have all been there. I believe therapy provides safety, hope, understanding, and a way forward. I'm committed to creating a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space for my clients. I know from experience that holding onto hope for meaningful change, even when clients can't hold onto that hope for themselves, is one of the most powerful things I can offer.

There's no instruction manual for life. Relationship problems, career questions and mental health issues can make us feel confused about our own identity, where we fit in and how to move forward. I specialize in helping adults and couples navigate difficult feelings, identify and change unhelpful thoughts and patterns, and become "un-stuck" in order to enjoy a more peaceful mind and a happier life. My approach is open, casual, and collaborative, and I strive to maintain a space that is judgment-free, and where clients feel fully accepted, truly seen and supported. I'm LGBTQIA+-friendly, sex/kink-positive and culturally-sensitive.

Trauma cuts deep. It has the ability to knock the wind out of you and throw you off course. It can creep up gradually, or sometimes feel as though it strikes all at once. The process of finding someone that you trust to work with you in some of your most tender moments can be incredibly intimidating. I would be honored to talk with you and see if we would be a good match in your process of healing.

Most everyone experiences some Problems of Living during the course of his or her life. These can manifest as common psychological symptoms or as difficulties in relationship or work. By attending to the contributions that both past experiences and present circumstances make, I work to liberate effort and energy caught in these problems, making that very energy available for the pursuit of wishes and some measure of joy.

She works with teens, young adults, couples, and families impacted by anxiety, trauma, grief, and addiction.
You are so over it—the mental anguish, the emotional distress, the sleepless nights, the loneliness. All you want is to be happy, but sometimes it feels like the powers that be are conspiring against you. You’ve tried everything, but nothing seems to work. You feel sick, tired, and burned out, but deep down you know there has to be another way. You've reached a crossroad that has opened up a willingness to do something different - something you haven't tried before or perhaps something you never really went all in with before now. This is your chance to do something different to enhance the quality of your life and relationships.
