I have been in practice for 30 years and have worked with many different people, especially people struggling with relationships; how you relate to anyone or anything: a partner, friend, family member, alcohol, a substance, food.
Thank you for reading! I imagine you are here because you are searching for something; an answer to your pain and suffering. People don't typically come to therapy because all is well; they are looking for relief from the pain. We will sit together in that pain because pain shared is pain decreased. And then we begin to take action to feel more in control of our lives. Taking action is the perfect antidote to that crippling sense of powerlessness. Yes, there are many things we can't control; we identify them and let them go. And, there are many things we can control, primarily through a change in perspective.

As a therapist specializing in anxiety, chronic health and pain conditions, trauma, and addiction, I have the expertise you need to get on the road to the peace, and fulfillment you deserve.
Do you feel overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, anger or defeat, as a result of a significant life change or past trauma? Maybe a relationship has ended or a new phase of life has just begun. Perhaps you’re living with the long-term effects of abuse, pain, or other traumatic experience. You may feel out of control & unsafe of your life or emotions, anxious about even the smallest things, or like you just can’t find your footing. Eventually, these things start to overflow into other areas of life: your relationships, work, and decisions about the future. Despite how hard things are right now, you know there’s more to life than this.

I offer psychotherapy services that address trauma and traumatic events, mood issues, anxiety, life transitions, substance use, health behavior change, gender and/or sexual orientation exploration.
In life, we can experience very difficult challenges that require change. Some of those challenging events may be difficult to move on from, leave you feeling stuck and unsure of how to proceed. Therapy can be a helpful way of helping you explore events, process emotions, and grow within new perspectives. I can help provide a warm, compassionate environment to do just that. It is important to me that you feel heard and understood. I find that in this type of therapeutic space, individuals are much more open to taking steps towards flexibility, developing insight, and finding a self-compassion they may not have discovered before.

As a psychotherapist, I’ve worked with various populations and people facing different challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, suicidal ideation and self-harm.
Whether you’re struggling with a crisis, life transition, feeling overwhelmed, or finding yourself stuck in unproductive patterns, there is no need to navigate this on your own. Therapy is about exploring the self in a way that allows you to grow through self-discovery. I focus on meeting clients where they are and seeing the world from their perspective, and go together from there.

With addiction recovery, I work from a non-12-step approach to collaborate with you on forming your goals and empower you in changing those unwanted behavior patterns at your pace.
Life is full of unexpected turns and challenges, and you’ve been trying to push through the barriers on your own for a while now. You’ve sought out various ways to make yourself feel better temporarily, but haven’t found something that brings long-term relief. Sometimes, despite your great effort, those overwhelming feelings of loneliness, fear, and helplessness continue to persist. If you're struggling with emotional pain, you don't have to deal with it all alone. What you need may be a safe space where your difficult feelings can be worked through and your authentic self can be seen, understood, and accepted.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of anxiety, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. I have experienced this firsthand and know there are ways to escape the slavery to addiction. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.
