There are points in life where you may ask yourself if the path you're on is leading you where you need to be going. You may be asking yourself questions like: "Is this the best I can expect from my marriage?" "Is this what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?" "Is the work I'm doing the work I was born to be doing?" I will work with you both to get answers to these questions and to more fully accept the answers you receive.

I bring the best of both worlds-- over 25 years experience as a psychotherapist, expert in the areas of treating depression, addiction and trauma and a Success and Performance Coach skilled in the latest strategies and techniques for motivation and change. I am able to take what appears to be an obstacle and turn it into a means of building emotional muscle. Obstacles will happen but it is the meaning we give to events that makes all the difference. I have a background in performance art and currently utilize mindfulness as a tool to assist clients in their lives.

I work with couples, groups, and individuals. Do you isolate, feel misunderstood, or have difficult connecting to others? Have you been told you are "too sensitive" or "too intense"? Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try - you can't catch a break? Do you want to hide parts of yourself? Do you want to build more connection in your relationship? Do you find you and your partner continuing to argue about the same things? You are not alone. Often times our old wounds and experiences get in the way of living.

Waitlist for new clients
We’re unfortunately not born with a manual on how to live life. It’s unpredictable complexities jolt us out of the path we had so carefully planned for ourselves, and leave us in a place of feeling lost. These obstacles can appear in various ways; parenting, relationships, work, loss, violence and sometimes do not appear at all except for a knot in our stomach. What does one do when the next step is not clear? It is in these moments of uncertainty where I can be of help. There is no right or wrong reason, or person, for therapy; it is an opportunity to put life on pause for an hour, while we work together to uncover the next step.

I work best with adults who hard on themselves, especially parents and people experiencing chronic pain. Do you often feel like you "should" be doing more or better? Do you feel guilty taking time for yourself? Do you have mixed feelings about parenthood or your relationship? Learning how to treat ourselves with compassion, accepting our negative feelings as well as the positive ones, and balancing caretaking for others with caring for ourselves is something many of us have to learn as adults. These are areas I help my clients with daily. You don't need to struggle with these issues alone.

As a parent you might notice your child withdrawing, not interacting as usual with friends and family, getting into more fights or trouble, or struggling with self-confidence. Sleeping and eating habits and other daily routines may be affected as well. When you feel as though you don't know what else to do, reaching out and getting help through counseling can be the best alternative.

I am here! What are you needing and how can I help? I believe that crisis equals opportunity. A crisis that brings someone to therapy can be a pathway to growth and new ways of being, seeing and believing which makes you feel better. With an environment of safety and compassion, an individual has the opportunity to heal almost any wounding whether it happened in childhood or adult life if that is their goal. I love my work, have been doing it for over 30 yrs and have no plans to stop. It gives my life meaning and makes my heart sing.
