I have expertise in the areas of sexual assault/ abuse , domestic abuse , and have worked extensively with at-risk youth and parents.
How can I help you? Was there a crisis, or an unexpected, yet, traumatic event that has happened in your life? Maybe you're just feeling lost, tired, overwhelmed, in-shock, and just in need of some extra support. Maybe it was an ultimatum, "Either we go to therapy, or we're done..." that motivated this decision. So here you are... reading this... are you ready? As your Therapist I will listen, be supportive, and help you deal with the crisis, trauma, and stressors in your life. I provide a warm, inviting, safe, and non-judgmental space where you and your healing are my main focus.

There are times in life when our paths lead us off course and we find ourselves struggling with serious issues like negativity, depression, worry, anxiety, interpersonal relational issues, difficulty with co-workers or unfulfilling marriages. Some of us struggle with unresolved trauma from our past, leaving us feeling distant, disconnected and alone. No matter how difficult your current situation seems, I believe that it is always possible to get back on track and feel better. In my years specializing in domestic violence , eating disorders and trauma related therapy, I have helped individuals, couples and families overcome multiple obstacles.

I have experience in pre-martial counseling, marriage counseling, divorce, domestic violence , challenges as an adolescent or parenting an adolescent, communication, relaxation techniques, goal setting and achieving, crisis management and passages through lives challenges.
Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

I have worked with previous mental health populations including victims of domestic violence /sexual abuse , addiction, severe mental illness including Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, and psychotic disorders including Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder.
Have you ever heard of the term Tabula Rasa? The term Tabula Rasa explains that we as individuals are born with a “blank slate” and the people, relationships, and experiences around us paint the characteristics of who we become. The beauty of this theory is that negative and traumatic experiences can be painted over with new insights, personal growth, and emotional development. I also utilize modern tools in therapy and personal assignments such as listening to podcast episodes, watching documentaries, or providing relevant reading material if interested. I prefer to work with adults and older teenagers.
