My 20+ years of experience covers a spectrum of behavioral health areas addressing complexities of our human experiences and have a specialization in addressing the impact of trauma, relationships, career, society pressures, parenting, and vulnerability.
Accepting NEW clients! I have always been passionate about the human story. I find it remarkable to listen to my clients’ journey and create a space together to pause, reflect and heal. My own healing journey has taught me that life gets hard, healing is messy, and also...that we don’t have to go through it alone. The therapy space is a valuable one and a protected process that allows you to honor the truth of your unique self while better understanding the systems and structures that we operate within, allowing us to bring more balance into the way we see ourselves and our interactions with the world.

Life is a challenge...even if you don't have any major problems. When you experience one or more additional stressors, such as relationship issues with a child/partner, challenges with blending families, job, financial, health, mood, legal, or ex-partner issues, you might find yourself struggling to keep your sanity at times or realize that you are not living up to your potential.

Contact me via Email for a free 15-min consultation if you are ready to work on family issues (traumas, adverse childhood experiences, parenting, bi-cultures, etc).
You don’t understand why your family causes you so many sleepless nights. You need someone to talk to but feel shame bringing up family issues or you don’t know where to start. You try to please everyone but you end up being the unhappy one. You cut off toxic family relationships but this leaves you feeling guilt, loneliness, and resentment. To prove yourself, you work hard and sometimes overcompensate. Past unresolved issues consume your energy, make you question yourself, and become hesitant to try a new relationship. You don’t want to be your parents but you don’t know how not to. You doubt if you can live a different life.
