As an able-bodied, cis-gender, white, middle class woman , I am aware that I exist in a culture that privileges my experience over many who are “othered” by society.
I have been providing child therapy and adult psychotherapy for 20 years. I am an active therapist, committed to staying deeply engaged in our moment-to-moment exchange. I enjoy working with clients who are psychologically minded, who want to get to know themselves better. I love helping people see their own potential, expand their beliefs about themselves and develop a growth mindset about their hopes and dreams. I currently have a home office where I still have a few daytime hours available and also I provide video counseling via HIPPA approved platform a couple of evenings during the week.

Do you feel like you are not like yourself anymore? Are your relationships suffering now because you're lost? It can be confusing, frustrating, and painful. Often times, the power of having a safe space to share what happened, express your emotions, and notice the unhealthy beliefs has been overlooked. It can quickly become isolating and feeling misunderstood. It does not have to be. You can be yourself again and reach your full potential by reaching out for help.

Your mind and body make a powerful, interwoven pair. Is your body expressing what the thoughts are repressing? Easing and gently lifting your sense of heaviness from anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and emptiness of spirit can be closer than you ever believed! Let me guide you to the other side of "stuck" in your personal and professional relationships, emotions, body issues, and success. When we are in a session all the focus is on being fully present for,and deeply listening to you, offering a clear, kind and soothing direction, towards releasing unhealthy thought patterns by integrating with body feelings.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in healing relationships. You may be feeling emotionally disconnected from your loved one right now and wondering "what's happening to us", "we used to spend more time together", "we used to talk more, laugh more". This is a normal feeling --- often times because of life changes (kids, career, relocation, family deaths) your relationship takes a back seat. Over the years, you evolve as an individual, you are not the same person you were when you entered into the relationship.

By providing a safe and supportive environment, clients are able to explore new approaches to ongoing life challenges. Some techniques I use suggest that our thoughts effect how we behave. Therefore, if we change the way we think, we may notice changes in our overall mood and behavior. My optimistic and caring style support self growth and empowerment. Part of my role as a therapist is to help my clients establish realistic goals that bring about positive change. I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults.

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 provide psychotherapy services for adults and adolescents. Life is messy, and being human can be painful. Sometimes we may feel hopeless. Sometimes we may feel saturated in shame or self-doubt. Sometimes we may feel overwhelmed with depression, anxiety, grief, anger, loneliness, or the reverberations of past experiences. These feelings and experiences can leave us with emotional bumps and bruising that impact the way we move through the world, relate to others, and relate to ourselves. Healing is possible. I believe we all share the innate capacity to heal, grow and feel whole.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist whose specialty is helping others improve their relationships. I believe that we all aspire to have deep, loving connections in our lives. I will help you to remove hurdles that may be impeding such connections in your life. Often, among these hurdles may be unhealed childhood experiences, baggage from previous relationships, and dysfunctional relating styles. Becoming more clear on what you have inherited from your family and what you developed as coping mechanisms will be the first step in aligning with your authentic self.
