What happened? How do I get through this? WILL I get through this? You might be asking yourself these questions, really hard questions. Whether it was one major event that you experienced or a lifetime of challenges, you might be wondering, is life supposed to feel like THIS? Shouldn’t it feel somehow better?……happier? Helping you to find your “happier” is my goal. I believe in your limitless capacity for healing, growth and change. I will walk beside you and together we will uncover what has you stuck, how to shift into a new way of thinking, believing, and being and how to find and nurture your “happier”.
My education, work history, and life experience have honed the skills needed to treat a wide range of concerns including relationship issues, divorce, single parenting, addictions, mental health wellness, grief and loss, and vocational transitions. I focus on radical self acceptance and self compassion to identify and honor your deep knowing and intuition.
I’m looking forward to spending time getting to know you and your unique story. Allow me to reflect back your strengths and abilities, and to show you the wonder of your unique journey. I look forward to helping you develop a more intimate understanding of yourself, your experiences and the world around you.

I work closely with clients who experience symptoms like anxiety and depressed mood. Initial sessions will involve exploring the present and past events that shape who you are today. We will look at the parts of you that you might have trouble witnessing, accepting or loving from a place of curiosity and compassion. Through this act of self love, true healing and growth are fostered.
