Is what you're doing getting you what you want? I am excited and honored to be invited into your personal journey to figure out what's working or not. I will walk beside you and help you figure out what change might look like for you. I work from a Motivational Interviewing perspective and provide my clients a safe, nonjudgmental, therapeutic space to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I work collaboratively with other professionals to provide a feeling of containment and a sense of safety. I work with all addictive and compulsive behaviors, trauma, anxiety, depression and dual diagnoses.

Most of us need help at times sorting out a difficult issue, navigating a life change, or reaching the peace and fulfillment in life that we long for. Therapy can be a critical part of healing, relational growth, and greater life contentment. I am a warm and approachable person with vast experience helping those who struggle with eating disorders and food and weight-related issues. I have worked at the inpatient, residential, and outpatient levels of care for those struggling with eating disorders. I also love working with those who want healing from anxiety, family pain and trauma, or who wish to explore their spirituality.

We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships.

Whenever people come to see me, I am always impressed by their courage. No matter what the problems are, most everyone enters therapy from a confused and vulnerable space. To do so takes courage. In knowing this, I work to honor their vulnerability and courage. I know that by providing a grounded, attentive, and focused presence to those I work with, trust will occur between us, and we can all be more free to address whatever the pain may be. Without this foundation of trust, I will not be able to effectively help at all.

Are you feeling more and more overwhelmed lately? Are you losing sleep, isolating, or drinking more than usual? Are anxiety and depression becoming too familiar? Glad you stopped in. You have found a safe place to regain homeostasis and find new ways of coping. I offer a compassionate, understanding, integrative, and faith-supportive approach, while promoting spiritual, physical, and psychological wellness. My services include a free phone consultation, and a reasonable fee offering a sliding scale. I believe that psychotherapy should be professional, helpful, AND affordable.

Life satisfaction hinges on the quality of past & current relationships because we grow in relationship with others. This is what therapy is all about. I work with adults, adolescents, college and transitional-aged clients to unearth the roots of inner distress, expand awareness, curiosity, energy and empowerment. Life is not rigid, it flexibly ebbs & flows. Growth, while scary demands a surrender of outdated beliefs and behaviors, leaving a familiar comfort zone. But guess what? You will not be alone.

As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin.

I'm a clinical psychologist who has worked extensively with individuals, couples, and children. As a therapist, I feel it is essential to develop a working alliance with my clients empowering them in their journey to develop and enhance their lives. I aim to create an environment where clients feel validated and accepted, while still being motivated and supported in their power to develop themselves fully. Helping people to develop a fuller sense of who they are, and what matters to them allow me to support them in overcoming barriers that keep them from achieving the lives they want.

I am devoted to growing and developing throughout life. There is always the possibility of bringing inner change to our lives. Moments occur in us when we experience a certainty that we need to change, and we are compelled to know about the deeper meaning of our lives. These are transformative moments that give depth and meaning to our lives.How can we cultivate deep caring for ourselves? I work collaboratively and synthesize the ideas of contemporary relational psychoanalysis and attachment theory in order to process experience and develop new and more meaningful and joyful patterns of life and relationship.

Relationships can be tough to navigate at times. Stressors and challenges can get in the way of us connecting. We can become distant from ourselves, especially if we are impacted by the negative effects of trauma, addiction, identity, and communication breakdowns.

In-person and telehealth available. I am passionate about helping people heal themselves.

I especially enjoy working with adults through the life cycle, and supporting them through transitions such as young adulthood, relationships, parenting, mid-life and older age. I also specialize with individuals and families with children on the Autism spectrum, learning disabilities and ADHD.

My approach to therapy is similar to my approach to life: adaptable and authentic. I think it is important to meet people where they are and to acknowledge the systemic issues that have brought challenges into their lives. I work from a multicultural and relational perspective (in other words, our families and our cultural influence who we are and it is important to bring that into therapy). NOTE: my capacity is very limited (as I continue to help through a CBO), currently only providing telehealth services.
