You have made the difficult first step in making changes in your life by deciding to find a therapist that is a good fit for you.
I look forward to helping you through compassion, acceptance, and non-judgmental support. I can help you experience peace, balance and harmony using Art Therapy and /or Internal Family Systems Therapy. Both therapeutic approaches are an effective way to access empowerment, self-confidence, decision making ability, relieve undesirable behavior/thoughts, and engage both sides of the brain so that you are fully present. It increases awareness of self and others and helps you experience success. I can help you shift and rebuild the way you think about the various aspects of your personality, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” -Rumi- We all have times in life where we feel that something isn’t working, that something needs to change. Whether that something is a relationship, a job, a place or the way we experience our day to day lives, I am passionate about helping you walk that path to more authentic relationships and a more authentic life . Sometimes that journey is best explored individually, sometimes as a couple, and I love working with both.

My intention is to offer this compassionate curiosity to support you in creating your most meaningful life .
I view each of our lives as a journey of discovery: of the self, the world around us, and all the experiences that move through us. We are learning how to be who we are, how to be human, and how to traverse the terrain ahead of us. The journey brings with it a full range, from ecstatic bliss and deep peace to agonizing shame and despair, and everything between. Each individual’s journey is unique, yet we share some overlapping themes and needs. Perhaps we are seeking support along our journey, for further growth, healing, or connection with our authentic self and others.

I provide a calm, non-judgmental, supportive space to help clients process depression, grief, trauma, stress, separation and difficult life transitions.
I offer nature walk therapy and online therapy to teens and adults. For in person therapy, rather than sitting in an office we meet at a local hiking trail and walk during our session. Being immersed in nature and moving the body while talking provides many additional benefits to the therapeutic process. I include effective therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal and Family Therapy in my sessions. I am especially passionate about helping single mothers navigate through difficult realities and emotions as I understand the experience first hand.

I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own.

Invest in yourself and your loved ones; therapy is not just a mental health treatment sought when we are suffering from mental distress, or unable to conduct life as wanted. Therapy is also a self discovery process to get a greater and deeper knowledge about ourselves, which will allow to make better choices and become the person that we have wished. Having someone to accompany you in this path, with a professional perspective, non-judgmental listening and accurate interventions, will allow you to cope with painful circumstances, significant life changes / transitions, as well with symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD and others.
