Is your child struggling through a tough situation like divorce or school stress? Covid has impacted everyone so much and many times kids/teens get overlooked. You are doing your best to support them and find balance in this chaotic time, yet sometimes you find yourself stuck: your child is behaving in uncharacteristic ways, and you're at a loss. I help by providing a unique space with creative tools for your child or teen to express themselves without worrying about being a burden. With my support, children, adolescents and teens learn how to regulate themselves, feel empowered, and discover their place in their world.

On the path to finding love, fulfilling work and meaning, there will be challenges that make us feel anxious, depressed, angry or just uncertain. I believe that exploring our feelings and personal goals in a safe, nurturing environment can help us adjust to difficulties and inevitable changes. I believe that focusing on your strengths and getting in touch with the body, mind and spirit can help promote health and well-being. I can offer you empathy, respect and listening without judgment, because to be truly heard is what makes us grow, adjust, and live to our fullest capacity.

A fight is going to happen; the only question is when. You don’t even remember what started it; just a moment ago, you were quietly watching television, but now you’re at each other’s throats. Constant fighting with your partner has left you both feeling helpless and alone. You still love your wife, and you want so badly to reconnect with her, but no matter what you do, you’re trapped in this cycle of conflict. Lately, it seems conflict is the only thing that still connects you. You hope desperately that there’s some way to mend this relationship, but you simply don’t know how. You can’t keep going like this. You need some help.

In my work with families, couples and individuals, I have found that happiness lies in having rich, caring relationships with people that we love. To develop loving and caring relationships requires skill and compassion. My job is to offer insight and awareness as to ways to develop these kinds of relationships. I find that my clients demonstrate an openness, courageous spirit and perseverance to achieve this goal. I have been blessed to work with many people who have taught me what it is to be human. It has always been my desire to give back what I have received.

I predominately work with clients suffering from depression and anxiety who are willing to look at the emotional barriers that have kept them in various cycles of shame, doubt, self-criticism and loneliness. Together we discover the parts of the self that have been hidden out of fear of rejection and condemnation. It is through this safe and therapeutic relationship that integration of the whole self can begin to emerge and life can be experienced more authentically, deeply and freely. With an empathic and non-judgmental approach I offer clients the emotional space to explore areas that have been too overwhelming to process alone.

Is your inner critic getting you down or in the way? That's exhausting and can get in the way of feeling like you can't be yourself or fully understood in your relationships. Struggling with intimacy, sexual dysfunction or relationship concerns? Sex and intimacy can be difficult to discuss and can result in patterns of pressure and rejection. Are you looking to improve your sex life or another sexual issue? Individual or couple's therapy are both options to discuss sexuality and relationship issues.

My goal is to help people put their life back on track! Eating, weight and body image issues can derail a person's focus and purpose. Healing from the inside out and the outside in releases a person from the tyranny of perfection. Learning to put food and feelings into proper perspective is a realistic and achievable goal.
