I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical and attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

If you are feeling sad, anxious, or simply unhappy, you are definitely not alone. My philosophy is that people do the best they can with what they have, but sometimes anxiety, stress, grief, depression and relationship issues can contribute to our feeling stuck. My genuine belief is that change is always possible and begins with being motivated to do something different. My approach is both collaborative and supportive and will help you explore the changes you'd like to make in order to live a more meaningful and purposeful life.

With pressures of work and raising families, the rapid pace of life today can cause relationship distress. In addition to the normal stresses of life, military service with its demands of training and lengthy separations can magnify a family's suffering. Couples can get trapped in a negative cycle of conflict and hostility or increasing alienation and distance.

Openness, curiosity, empathy, compassion, and creativity are personal attributes that shape the type of clinician that I strive to be. These characteristics have been helpful in allowing me to connect with clients and build strong therapeutic relationships, which I believe is a crucial ingredient to successful treatment. I don't believe people are "sick," but rather they get "stuck" in a pattern of interacting with others and the world in a way that no longer works for them. If you have been feeling stuck, unmotivated, worried or stressed, unable to enjoy life, or unsatisfied with you relationships, I can help.

In a comfortable office setting that is warm and relaxed, I provide a time for people to talk about their "world". I believe the most positive transformational aspect of therapy is when someone feels listened to,... really listened to. When this occurs, many levels of healing are possible. Ambitions may be discovered or recovered, losses and sorrows may be grieved for the first time or for the 1,000th time, and self-awareness and self-esteem can emerge in new ways. My approach focuses on developing an inner dialogue with oneself that is is compassionate and restorative.

Anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns are just a few of the challenges that threaten to overwhelm us. Unexpected loss, disappointing dreams, lonely relationships, and feelings of being less than or undeserving lead to questions like, “what am I doing wrong?” and “how did I get here?” Perhaps you feel like you’re doing everything right and it’s still not working. Carefully-controlled narratives mask messy, doubt-filled, anxiety-ridden moments. Maybe you even wonder, “am I enough?”
