**I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY NEW CLIENTS** One thing all have in common as human beings is a natural drive to discover and hold on to a strong sense of self as we navigate the world. When the challenges we face in life cause us to question our identity, this doesn't mean you are broken - it means that you are human.

Are you experiencing, stress, anxiety, feelings of uncertainty, difficulties coping, escalating relationship conflicts, does your performance in what is meaningful to you increasingly feels insufficient, whether at work, school or being a parent, these are all signs that you lost too much contact with your soul. It means you’re so good that you lost contact with yourself. Now let’s work on what will make you whole. Part of this is exploring that you were more than who you think you are, you were more than you know; both inside and outside of you there are more discoveries to be made, too often this process ends prematurely.

Our journey through life is complex and for every person, will come with successes, joys, and pleasures as well as challenges, concerns, and problems. I believe it is important to view the whole person, within the context of their relationships, family, community and society to gain a better understanding of all that is helpful or unhelpful along this journey. I have been honored to support this journey for individuals of all ages when faced with concerns related to learning differences, school/college/work struggles, social/relational challenges, and the process of developing an identity that one can be proud of.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.

With 32 years of working with individuals and families, I specialize in helping people make changes/progress with depression, anxiety, marital discord, parenting, and other life challenges. As a therapist, I take a nonjudgemental approach in helping people take control of their lives. Some things to ask yourself: Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, or another life challenge? Does your child/adolescent need assistance in expressing feelings? Does your child/adolescent push the limits? Have you and your spouse grown apart? Becoming stronger as an individual/family and strengthening boundaries and roles are my number one goals.

Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

Life post-college has left you feeling stuck. Maybe you're lonely and isolated . . . no thanks to the pandemic. Maybe your first job is super stressful, making you question if you're even in the right field to begin with. Or perhaps social anxiety is making it near-impossible to make friends. Whatever the reason, there's a disconnect between where you pictured yourself at this stage of life and your current reality.

I have been working in the field since 2014 and throughout my time I have worked with adults, children/teens, and individuals with neurodivergence. When working with my clients I make sure to tailor therapy to meet their needs including: finding ways to make interacting with their world easier and more manageable, developing coping skills, and working on communication skills. I aim to empower my clients and help them realize that they are amazing and capable. When possible I also try to incorporate the family dynamic into treatment as family is an important factor.

I was trained in rendering brief and short term therapy since we all want quick results. How do I do that? I am interactive with my clients and not just provide “talk therapy”, but rather, we will co-create a plan together to help you achieve positive results. I hold my clients accountable and will assign homework. I will give you my input, impressions, and at times, challenge you when those defenses are up. In life, when we’re faced with challenges, it only promotes growth and strength. At the same time, we will give you the positive regard, reflective listening, and be your cheerleader. We will empower you, not enable you.

FRUSTRATED with the SLOW PACE of others? Having difficulty COMMUNICATING with loved ones? Can't understand IRRATIONAL behavior by a partner or colleagues? Are you accused of being TOO INTENSE, COMPLEX or DRIVEN? These are all ways that intellectually gifted individuals may feel, without understanding what's causing it. Gifted individuals possess an intellectual complexity and emotional intensity that can lead them to experience life in ways qualitatively different from the norm. This can lead to challenges in COUPLES relationships or PROFESSIONAL settings. I have spent over 30 years working with gifted individuals, and am a CERTIFIED EFT COUPLES Therapist.
