I am here to listen and together we can explore your hopes, needs, and goals to promote an authentic acceptance of who you are. I provide a supportive, safe and non-judgmental environment for you to look into all areas of your life. Therapy can be a platform for growth, work and self discovery.

Whether you're needing guidance with personal boundaries, in a transitional life phase, recent or historic trauma, intimate partner violence , parenting, blended family dynamics, divorce, abandonment, or other needs that you currently feel stuck working through give me a call and we can unravel things together.
"Let your yes be yes, and your no be no!" Asserting your own needs and wants while maintaining love and connection within relationships can seem impossible. The chaos of pleasing others feels overwhelming and our own desires can get lost in transit. That feeling of being on an emotional treadmill- working hard without the results you desire. Help to unravel some of this messiness seems difficult without grace and guidance. The salve of a listener who can also offer insight can be a process toward healing. Whatever the narrative is in your current situation let's figure it out together. Internal self love and joy is possible.

Therapy can help you find balance, connection, and fulfillment. In order to do so, I believe it's important that we acknowledge the shadow elements of life-the challenges that cause us pain, confusion, and block us from finding a sense of harmony and well-being. I collaborate with you in navigating the shadows and the more buried aspects of your life in order to develop a deeper capacity for balance, personal growth, and healing.

I specialize in helping women with depression, anxiety or abuse to find their strength again.
I know you want your child to be happy and successful and are doing your best to help him. You'd like to have less arguing and enjoy your family more. Parenting is such a hard job. It can really help to have someone with experience to look at your situation from the outside. I believe you have what it takes to improve your family relationships, but you could use a guide. Your child may need to learn how to cope with new situations. I would like to help you to bring out the strengths in yourself and your family.

I work with depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, ADHD, grief and recovery from abuse .
There comes a time when we need help. I appreciate the courage anyone demonstrates when they make that call. I hope to create a space where individuals and families can receive that trusted assistance. I have been a therapist for thirty years. I was a tennis pro for ten years before that. I am aware of the process of change. There is a timing when an individual, or family, is ready to make those adjustments. In working with children, I involve the whole family. I especially enjoy the travels that the adolescent makes, and the perplexing attempts parents make in adjusting to this challenging phase. I work with addictions.

Life at times can be challenging, be that from depression, anxiety, difficult relationships, abuse , aging, work, chronic health problems, co-dependency, low self-esteem, grief, to our own destructive behaviors we can't seem to change. I have experience working with all of these, but helping those going through major life transitions, stress, feeling overwhelmed, and co-parenting after divorce or separation are some of my specialties. I like working with clients who are seeking change and ready to embrace the process of self-exploration and healthy alignment to reduce inner conflict and learn new ways of being in this world.
