Hello and Welcome. I have over a decade of practice in individual, adolescent , and couples therapy. I specialize in treating mood or anxiety difficulties, trauma, childhood trauma, chronic pain and illnesses, relational difficulties, life stressors, or life and identity transitions. My passion is to help you breathe freely; experiencing relief, resilience, self-compassion, and increased emotional freedom. We often learn strategies through life to keep us safe, but those strategies may hold us back in our present. It is in our relationships that we learned these strategies; it is through a therapeutic relationship that we heal.

Life can often feel overwhelming. Many of us have developed patterns of thinking, feeling and connecting to help us get by, but are finding that they may no longer be helpful. Whether you are needing support in managing overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression, suffering from unresolved experiences in childhood or adulthood, or hoping to repair painful or conflict-filled relationships, therapy can be a place of support for you to move away from unhelpful patterns and experiences to live in ways that feel safe, secure, even enjoyable.

Seeking help for many of us is not easy. I know from firsthand experience it can be the most difficult hurdle in our lifetime. I came to this work later in life after finally receiving help to recover from my own suffering and problematic patterns. I believe healing from life’s wounds is an ongoing daily process we can do more effectively together. Through connecting with others, we become empowered to grow and take steps toward the creation of lives we crave and deserve; lives filled with healthy relationships, peace, meaning, and joy! Life is precious and fleeting and there is no time to waste. Please reach out now!

Life can feel chaotic. Whether you are considering your first time in treatment, continuing or returning to treatment, my goal is to provide you with the platform and skills to effectively evaluate, identify and create solutions to help you. It’s important to remember that therapy is not always about ‘fixing’ a problem. Sometimes, it is about learning how to work with the problem by creating awareness, strengthening insight, developing or broadening skills you already have. It is a joint effort between the therapist and the client, working together, to impact change and bring balance to what may otherwise feel out of control.

Do you feel like you are “too sensitive for the world around you?” Are you fine one moment and then overwhelmed with emotions the next? Maybe you’re in a “good” relationship, but can’t stop wondering whether it’s right for you. It can feel scary and lonely when it seems like your life is going well on the surface, but underneath there is a different reality. Many of my clients live with trauma, anxiety, extreme stress levels, and depression. They manage to expertly float through life finding “success” while feeling empty and depleted. The good news is that the skills that have helped you come this far are already in place.

Life experiences can impact us in surprising, often difficult, and even traumatic ways leaving us feeling out of touch with ourselves and those around us. We all have a desire to feel understood, and that journey often begins within ourselves. My goal in therapy is to create a space where you feel heard and safe while we explore deeper into who you are and begin to wrestle with the question “where do I go from here?”.

I use a variety of treatments to address adult and teen challenges, depending on the situation.
Perhaps you’re making a transition in your family life, your career, or your relationship. Or maybe you feel stuck, and wish you could make a change. Shifts like these can bring up all types of feelings, like anxiety, hope, disappointment or excitement, all mixed together. No matter what you’re going through, it can be a chance to get to know yourself better, and learn what you want. I work with people who are dealing with transitions in life, as well as anxiety about the present or future. I help people better understand what they’re going through, how to cope with it, and how to feel confident about themselves moving forward.

As a parent or caregiver, you've noticed a change where your tween, adolescent or teen just isn't the way they used to be. Their smile is gone and they're more to themselves, stressed, unmotivated, anxious, sad, or angry and you know something has to change. You know they often feel misunderstood, are quiet, sensitive, don't easily trust adults, or have seen so many therapists they couldn't make progress with and you're not sure they will open up. You need someone to connect with your teen , join their world, and support them in regaining happiness and stability to meet their goal of having a happy, hopeful and successful life.

Maybe you have a child who has many worries or is prone to negative thinking? Maybe your child is feeling overwhelmed with emotion not knowing how to control the rage? Or maybe your teen is having difficulty connecting socially with others and forming meaningful relationships? Having a child with social and emotional challenges can be distressing for family members. Therapy can help build skills of resiliency and improve emotional awareness. I am passionate about working with children, teens, and families with anxiety, depression, ASD, and ADHD.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
