I believe therapy should be a place where you are able to recognize your potential. Where you feel heard, valued, and supported to reach your goals. I have an extensive background working with individuals facing difficult life transitions, those who are experiencing anxiety and depression, and those who are impacted by chronic illness and grief and loss.

I have experience with teens, adults, and older adults (55+), chronic illness , mood disorders, grief, and daily stress.
The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. We just don't feel heard. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going. It's my goal as a therapist to help you tell your story.

Older adults, do you want professional help for something personal? Certainly a lot has changed in recent years. Medicare now encourages supportive therapy for seniors, and my Humanistic approach is ideal for discussing problems that have just surfaced, or long standing concerns. My counseling specialties are financial worries, memory problems, family and friend relationships, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, illness, chronic pain, life changes, retirement, moving, social isolation or loneliness, caregiving, addictions, and LGBTQ+ education.

Even the strongest and most skillful people sometimes lose their way. Past experiences do not always prepare you for the unique challenges that find you. You can feel very competent in one area of your life, and like a failure in another. An unforeseen trauma can overwhelm your ability to cope. Nearly everyone has some time in their life when they can benefit from a supportive other who attempts to see the world from their perspective and help navigate the path ahead. As a therapist, my job is to help my clients draw a road map to their desired life and to trouble shoot how to get around barriers, when they arise.

Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

Anxious? Depressed? Overwhelmed and finding it difficult to achieve daily tasks that used to be so easy? Maybe past traumas have been interrupting your sleep, relationships, career, and you don't know how to manage these traumas? Maybe you want understanding and to break generational toxic behaviors that have worked against you? Maybe you witnessed or experienced an extreme event that is affecting you, but have no idea where to start? I get it, life is not easy, and maybe you are at a point you just need to talk to someone who is non-biased and non judgmental. I am happy to be that person to talk too!
