I do this work because I believe that it is every human being's right and potential to live a fulfilled and healthy life, and often, we just need to feel safe, seen, and heard in order to find our way there.

I feel especially passionate about working with those who are experiencing the effects of life altering losses; including death, divorce, adoption, infertility, baby loss, and perinatal mood disorders.
Has life taken an unexpected turn? Are you faced with difficult life changes?

You may have decisions to make in the midst of it all and feel confused, overwhelmed, and alone. I would be honored to support you through this difficult time and to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings; access your inner wisdom; find clarity; and feel better.

Typical clients are those who are experiencing uncertainty with goals and obstacles, life transitions, isolation, anxiety, OCD, depression, postpartum depression, substance use and abuse, stressors and changes including: graduation, grief and loss, relocation, loss of independence, palliative, chronic disease, and end of life support and education.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I have been providing therapeutic support through telehealth, to individuals, groups, and families since 2013. My focus has been on working with young adults, adults and seniors. The pandemic significantly changed how I provide therapeutic support. Prior to Covid -19, I worked out of individuals homes and in the community. I hope to return to meeting with clients in a community setting once Covid-19 is no longer a barrier.

I specialize in couples therapy and supporting women. In my work with women I help create space where you can freely give yourself permission to be where you are and offer love and kindness to yourself. I will support you to step into a place of deeper authenticity and strength. Old patterns of thinking or ways of viewing the world may no longer be serving you but you can choose to hold space for what serves and say no thank you to what does not. In my couples work I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

Starting therapy takes courage. By the time my clients begin working with me they have grown tired of what's not working in their lives. I help them develop new perspectives, work through grief and loss, and choose their path forward. I base my practice on direct style, good humor and close attention to the subtle dynamics that have kept them stuck until now. Tools: Somatic, Narrative, Gestalt and Mindfulness approaches. Specialties: Trauma recovery, challenging life transitions, working with finances, sexuality and parenting.

As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities.

We all go through difficult times and it takes courage to reach out for support. You may be wondering how therapy can help you. Perhaps you want support with a challenging issue, to relieve anxiety, recover from trauma or to change patterns that no longer work for you. You may want to improve a relationship or get support with parenting or working through loss. You can make changes, break patterns, and heal. Therapy is a place to get support, to explore new strategies for coping better with life, and to view things from an expanded perspective. Our challenges present us with opportunities to heal as well as grow.
