I help those who feel that life has become a struggle, when transitions in relationships, academic life, or career may bring inhibiting anxiety or an overwhelming depression. I share observations and insights with the intention of helping clients as quickly as possible. My work as a therapist is informed by my own life passages as a wife, mother, widow, single parent , empty nester, and older graduate student. As someone who has embarked on a new career in later life, I understand both the fear and the rewards in managing life-enhancing changes.

I will also offer support to you in managing the inevitable stress of being a parent .
I’ve been working with children across the developmental spectrum for 15 years now through my various roles in schools, childcare, and now as a therapist. I strongly believe each child’s needs are unique. What works for one child or family, doesn't necessarily work for the next. Some children’s behaviors are more difficult to understand. Some children feel deeply in ways that their peers do not. I’m here to offer you a non-judgmental space to explore the current dynamics of your family and explore which changes can help create a more harmonious and enjoyable household. Play is the avenue through which children learn.

During these difficult times, how would your life be different if you had someone to speak with about the issues that you are struggling with NOW? What if you could have an intimate, stimulating and long-lasting love affair with your partner? Could you imagine yourself, your partner or a family member learning how to take responsibility for thinking, feeling and behaviors so that life was satisfying and successful rather than stressful and disorganized? Well...that is possible.

Every person has intrinsic value and worth- which is vitally important to remember when exploring one's personal journey. At times we forget and need gentle reminding. Having a skilled clinician to help shine a light on things that need attention or adjustment, sets us up for more of what we really want and need in life. Each person also holds a personal narrative, which contributes in shaping relationships and life choices, as well as contributes to problematic patterns and habits. Seeking support for a more fulfilling life and the restoration of what matters most, is nothing less than heroic. Call for a complimentary intake.

Hello and welcome! I'm glad you are here. Juggling the multiple roles and relationships that society calls us into can be quite the challenge, and part of my reason for being a therapist is the desire to walk alongside individuals as they navigate life’s trials. I feel that our greatest challenges have the potential to lead us to the most free expression of self and guide us toward our most authentic path. I aim to provide a safe and openhearted experience for my clients where all aspects of the self are welcomed with warmth and curiosity.

Welcome! I help people with a variety of problems, from depression and anxiety to trauma and recovery. I can help you. I am a depth therapist (seeing causes, rather than only symptoms) and a somatic therapist (integrating a healthy mind and body), and I've found that more important than my background is a non-judgmental attitude, attention to your personal needs, and the quality of a collaborative therapy relationship. I'm on your side. My clients gain crucial insights, learn essential coping skills and dramatically improve their relationships, outlook, and prospects for the future. Their lives become much more vital and satisfying.

Therapy is a unique environment where you can feel accepted without judgment. I offer ideas based on my education and experience to help facilitate your healing. In a safe space where you feel seen and heard, you can identify and build on the strengths that are already within. I have worked with clients from preschool-age to folks in their 80s. Many of my clients have no prior experience with counseling or have felt disillusioned by it in the past. In addition to talk therapy, I utilize EMDR, play therapy, sandplay, & other expressive modalities.

Parenting Therapists
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
