If you are stuck in unhealthy behavior patterns--- whether it's outward behaviors like addictions, or internal patterns of negative thoughts--- I can help you identify the root cause and break free. These "scripts" often started from past conditions such as our childhoods or previous relationships, but we're able to update them to match the present and become healthier and more effective. If you have... an ACEs score of 3+? Problematic substance use ? Possible symptoms of PTSD? Inability to maintain relationships? Let's talk.

I work with those struggling with emotional barriers, strained relationships, substance use , behavioral disturbances, identity struggles, social anxiety, mood swings, depression, and school/work-related stress.
"PEOPLE START TO HEAL THE MOMENT THEY FEEL HEARD." You’re taking the first step to a healthier, happier you; YAY you! Making that first phone call can be so terrifying, but let me tell you so worth it. While it feels risky to expose raw emotions, you can open up to vulnerability, move through uncomfortable feelings, and ultimately effect change in your life. I help you learn new skills to manage emotions and help create new approaches to rebuild yourself, your relationships, and your mood. We will work to understand how your past has influenced your present and gain coping tools to overcome these feelings and rebuild a better you.

My work as a therapist is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work with individuals ranging from young adults to seniors. As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.

With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; including depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is, as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client. One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving and accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.

I worked in the field of addiction for nine years and in that time I gained a wide range of experience. From teaching families healthy living and providing parenting skills, to attachment therapy and play therapy for children affected by trauma. Many clients were experiencing relationship issues, or mental health issues and/or were involved with the criminal justice system. With the variety of clients that I have seen in various settings, I've found a common basic need. All people want to feel heard, respected and to be understood.

You are living a daily battle in your head about what you can eat, how much you should exercise, if you are worthy of taking up space. You are consumed by counting calories and by the negative voice inside that tells you, you’ll never be good enough or thin enough, smart enough or pretty enough. You are fed up with how the society/culture tells you how you should look and feel and behave. Your behaviors have you feeling exhausted and depleted and you wonder how you can go on another day. Others may think you have it all together on the outside, but the mental torture inside is killing you and feel like your life is shrinking.
