Successful therapy is a combination of your life experiences coupled with my skill set in a caring, supportive environment. When you put those things together your life will begin to change in ways you have secretly hoped were possible. I often am asked how looking at past experiences and feelings can enhance our future. Basically, "why waste time looking backwards?" My answer is this: When we don't take time to reflect on unconscious patterns we often repeat them; even ones that don't serve us. It's time to break that chain.

Life is filled with challenging transitions, relationships, and experiences. One of my favorite sayings is – nothing in this life worth having comes easy. I use it, myself, as a reminder and motivator when things get hard. Because they do, and that’s okay! It is okay to be stressed, frustrated, sad, angry, excited, and any other emotion you feel. The challenge comes when those emotions lead to unfortunate circumstances. I believe the things we want will test us before conceding and opening the door to success and personal fulfillment. Resilience is a core trait to develop and can provide everyone with the opportunity for happiness.

My philosophy in working with youth and adults is to share cognitive and mindfulness techniques, in a supportive setting, to help my clients make positive changes in their thoughts and actions. Utilizing personal accountability, combined with humor and lightness, I aim to help clients cultivate compassion for themselves, so they may be willing to experiment with new tools. I strive to help clients come back into their bodies, more effectively process their feelings, and move decisively toward wellness. My theory is to be flexible and sensitive in my approach while moving clients toward a more confident, realized version of themselves.

I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

Do you long for more intimacy and happiness in your life? Do you know what you want and seek the support to move into bold action? I believe people have an intrinsic sense of how personal dynamics may be creating or blocking what it is desired, but often get stuck in unconscious patterns and old behaviors. Taking the time to tune into self is a valuable resource for finding one's own voice and the natural solutions that reside within.

Issues of loss and grief, parenting skills or a new life direction. In recent years, I have come to love working with families and siblings of children diagnosed with Autism. Many times these family members are left with no support in the day in and day out living with a child or sibling with Autism. Chronic pain is also a major interest of mine.
