You play many roles in your life. You are a friend, partner, employee, student, family member, a parent, teacher, and a support system. You play all of these roles, and sometimes at the end of the day you have nothing left. On top of these roles you struggle with the daily stressors of life that can include finances, personal and work life. Eventually you feel like everything is going to fall apart, and you are not enjoying things that use to make you happy. Together we can sort through all the "stuff" that is going on and reconnect you to your passions and joys. Due to COVID-19 I am only offering limited telehealth.

You deserve to feel happy, healthy, and loved! Your relationships can be the best part of your life, helping you to feel joy, appreciation, and fulfillment...or you can find yourself just going through the motions. In our stressful and demanding world, it is all too easy to disconnect from those who are most important to us; poor communication leads to a lack of understanding, and we become demanding, intolerant, and unforgiving of ourselves and of those who matter most. Instead of sharing quality time together, we spend our energy tearing each other down. Gaining awareness, and learning from the past instead of dwelling on it, are some of the first steps toward moving forward. I find nothing more satisfying than helping people to overcome their obstacles so that they can love and feel loved, accept and feel accepted, and realize that they are truly worthy of all that life has to offer. Since 2009, I've helped my clients become better versions of themselves; let's work together and start turning your possibilities into realities!

I am committed to the optimal development and functioning of individuals through an increased understanding of themselves and others. I have a sincere appreciation for the strengths and uniqueness of the people I work with, as well as an appreciation for cultural diversity. The therapeutic relationship is an experience that promotes an increased propensity toward self-awareness and change in behavior, allowing the individual to discard maladaptive behaviors that no longer serve them. My goal is to provide an environment of empathy, genuineness and respect where profound issues can be examined and transformation can occur.

I am passionate about helping children and adults who come from hard places to find hope and healing, including those with PTSD, anxiety, and attachment problems. My desire is for my clients to experience a genuine, compassionate, and well-equipped psychologist to guide them toward their goals. I strive to help my clients learn, grow, and heal so they can flourish. I tailor my approach to each individual's and family's strengths and needs, pulling from several evidence-based practices, teaching and coaching concrete skills, and focusing on reflection and relational patterns. I have clinical expertise in the treatment of trauma both in children and adults, including those with histories of abuse, neglect, and other forms of interpersonal trauma. I love working with parents who themselves have come from hard places or with histories of loss who are struggling to find their way in parenting, to move from surviving to thriving. I am passionate about helping family members connect and overcome what has divided them. I have specialized training in helping foster and adoptive families. Additionally, I treat young children who are struggling with behavioral problems at home and school.

The ways you interact, connect, and attach to others has deeply rooted ties. You may find yourself caught in between your actions and your intentions, as if they are working against one another. Maybe you’re thinking “How did I get here?” and “Where am I going?” What may have worked in the past, is no longer helping you live the life you wish to build for yourself. Between childhood and adulthood, we all encounter struggles but how do you move through them? We can work together to identify where and why you or your child may be struggling, how to root yourself in healing, and learn new ways of connecting to one another.

Are you concerned about your teenager's excessive stress, argumentative behavior at home, or declining grades? Adolescence is a stressful period as the developmental changes that occur during this time affect almost every area of a teenager's functioning (e.g. relationships with others, risk-taking behavior, sense of identity). However, these changes often lead to great distress on the teenager and their families. Psychotherapy can be a great tool for your child to work through his or her conflicts as they make the difficult transition into adulthood.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
