When problems come up in our lives, they often make up us feel alone. It’s not that we can’t handle the problems, but sometimes it just feels overwhelming. Often, we feel like the problems are not going away or that everybody else is living a better life; however, I can assure you that you’re not alone.

I believe that mental health is an important part of overall good health. Often we feel too busy and rushed to pay attention to taking care of ourselves, including paying attention to our mental and emotional needs. I am a clinical psychologist with 20+ years of professional experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I enjoy working with people to explore healthier ways to address issues and problems in their lives. I've found that therapy is most effective when there is a safe environment and a strong working relationship between myself and my clients.

Often times, I’ve noticed that people seeking therapy already intuitively know what they want, or even what their potential solutions may be – before stepping foot inside my office. What they may lack is the support towards making those desires a reality. That’s why my therapeutic approach is collaborative and centered around strengthening your voice and choice in your life. I won’t stand in front of you to pull you in this direction, or behind you, to push you in another; but rather you can find me walking beside you serving as your rock and partner in healing.

It takes courage to show up for yourself and in your relationships. To allow yourself to be seen and known is risky, yet essential. I work with individuals (primarily women), couples and families with various challenges including trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and grief and loss. I also support couples dealing with relationship stressors, betrayals, or major life changes including families/individuals caring for loved ones near the end of life or those in the process of recovery.

Sometimes life throws obstacles at you that are out of your control, but that does not mean you cannot live your optimally healthy life. Being truly healthy includes emotional, social, mental and physical well-being. When these aspects of life are out of balance due to health problems, work stress, or personal issues, it can feel like your whole world is falling apart. Working through these challenges and learning the best coping tools can help you put it back together. I strive to help you move through challenges in achieving a healthy mind and body using practical, evidence-based strategies and compassionate tailored care.

Brene Brown says: "If we really want to live a joyful, connected, and meaningful life, we must talk about things that get in the way.” - There are times in our lives where we feel disconnected with ourselves, others, and the world around us, and instead of living with compassion, clarity, and stillness, we are stuck feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, hopeless, angry. It's so hard to do that alone, I am here to support you. I am passionate about helping you navigate this journey of self-discovery towards growth and healing.
