Developing a trusting and authentic therapeutic relationship can be transformative. This transformation begins with empathy, understanding and self-reflection to begin the healing process. Life is often overwhelming, challenging, and unforgiving but what steps can you take to balance your daily life and overall wellbeing. Maybe you are a young mother adjusting to single parenthood or a grandparent struggling to raise grandchildren. Do you question your competence as a caregiver? Are you feeling overwhelmed and stressed about everyday challenges and with life? Do you feel unheard or isolated?

I think that asking for support is pretty courageous and maybe even a little scary. Trusting that someone can be objective and supportive is hard for anyone, but this can be especially hard when something about your life experiences has made it difficult to trust (even) yourself. Maybe you struggle with making decisions. Maybe past or present trauma has left you feeling depressed or anxious or both. Or maybe you don’t know why you feel the way you feel or what causes you to do the things you do. I understand, from a very deep and personal way, what it’s like to feel like you are not the best version of yourself.

Do you struggle with your emotions? Do relationships, or other people in general, seem to trigger or overwhelm you? Many people have difficulty with intimate relationships, friendships, parenting, or other family connections. They may feel others don’t really care about them, or that they’re not worth others caring about. I know this experience can be very painful. I help people better understand why they feel and react the way they do, and how they can experience more balance and peace. Relationships do take work at times, but they can also be a source of great healing, acceptance, and joy.

Now and again life can throw us curve balls. Athletics has been hit hard by the pandemic and has left many sad and not knowing where to turn. As an energetic, committed and lighthearted therapist (and true coach at heart) my approach is both collaborative and encouraging. I work with athletic coaches, athletes & parents who are struggling with depression & anxiety. This could look like saddness, isolation, anxiety, anger, lost interest, & unmotivated. I offer a safe, honest, nonjudgmental, and compassionate space. I truly love watching from the sidelines as you make life changes to improve your overall well-being.

I use an integrative approach that is based on the individual needs of the people in front of me and begins with compassion and empathy. I believe forming a strong therapeutic relationship is key for therapy to be successful. Rooted in person-centered therapy, I use empathy, respect, humor, and curiosity to guide treatment. From there, I weave various evidenced based practices together like Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, attachment theory and mindfulness strategies to challenge, empower, build insight and guide you to healthier ways of managing life.

Welcome! What is a mosaic? It is little imperfect pieces of glass or tile that come together to form beautiful art. How can we create a mosaic within ourselves and in our lives? All the broken pieces of glass or tile can represent trauma, experiences, life journeys, parts of our self, etc. that we sometimes don't necessarily know how to understand them all to incorporate them into our sense of self. I have a passion for working with people to help put these pieces together in a way that creates the beautiful mosaic that is YOU!
