24 years as a clinical social worker has taught me that finding the right therapist is like trying on a pair of shoes. It has to be the right fit for you to start the journey of self-exploration. I believe in a strength based approach, where we not only explore the issues that brought you to therapy, but we explore how to expand the things that bring you joy and happiness. As Dr. Seuss once said, “life is a great balancing act” and he could not have been more right.

Becoming a parent can be AMAZING. It can also be really, REALLY hard. So far, this parenthood gig has been so much harder, messier, and more vulnerable than you expected. You wish you could enjoy this season of life with your family, but instead feel overwhelmed with fear, anger, guilt, shame, resentment, loneliness, or grief. You know that something needs to change if you’re going to be the kind of parent that you really want to be.

Change is a given part of life. One's response to change can mean the difference of having a good day or a bad one, a fulfilling life or feeling stuck in a situation. One's response to change depends on one's thoughts and feelings about the change. Changing one's thoughts about a situation can be challenging. It occurs little by little. It takes a lot patience and practice to make changes. My clients may have depression, anxiety, attention problems, other behavioral or emotional problems or traumatic experiences to change.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience. I see children, adolescents, and adults in individual therapy who are struggling with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, life cycle challenges, trauma/abuse and many more. People cope with and try to manage their past and present to the best of their ability. However, at times it can be overwhelming and may also create additional barriers as people often outgrow their coping skills, or their skills and tools are simply no longer working for them.

My goals as a therapist are to create a safe and supportive environment in which clients can share their thoughts and feelings freely, to learn more effective coping skills and interventions in order to ease symptoms and solve problems as well as gaining deeper insight about themselves, the world and their future. My approach is to meet clients where they are in life without judgement. Therapy sessions are collaborative where client and therapist examine and question client's distorted thoughts and core beliefs as well as developing positive strategies and healthier ways of thinking as they move forward in their lives.

Life is wonderfully perfect, until we feel it has come to an end. When that dark path presents itself, it is time to take a challenge that perhaps we have avoided for a very long time. A challenge could be perceived as a change which could bring new beginnings or a change, we may fear the most. The question we should be asking ourselves is, “Am I ready to take that challenge?” Mental Health is a part of the human anatomy that is needed for an individual to have the best quality of life. Individuals feelings and emotions are crucial to be validated for individuals to have that best quality of life.
