It is my belief that the most healing aspect of therapy is the therapeutic relationship. For it is only through this foundation that our deepest and most personal wounds can be healed. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families and teens and helping patients gain a greater understanding of themselves and the important people in their life. My goal is to empower patients to be vulnerable and honest with themselves and others and thereby make healthy life choices and impact change in their relationships.

Change is hard! Isn't the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don't have to feel alone. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible. I won’t promise it will be easy (therapy rarely is). But I can promise you, it will be worth it.

My training includes certification as a Registered Play Therapist and my experience with children and their families is focused on brain based therapeutic play that is informed by the neurobiology of each child. The field of neuroscience has validated the use of play therapy for a broad variety of childhood disorders.

Are you emotionally exhausted and mentally drained from constantly being more concerned with others’ wants and needs while yours get dismissed? Do you second guess decisions because it’s hard to trust your own opinion? I bet it would feel like such a relief to not worry about what others are thinking about you. I GET IT! My clients have either had a chaotic childhood or a single traumatic experience that has altered their self perception. They have so much compassion for others, yet struggle to turn it inward. They want to “love themselves”, but continue to engage in behaviors that make them feel less than.

Are you always a little bit afraid that your anxiety will show up at the worst time? I know the feeling! Anxiety can be scary, even when it shows up when you are leaving the house, meeting a friend, or ordering food. Everyday tasks don’t seem that easy with anxiety around. I want to help turn the volume down on your anxiety so that even the simplest asks will become easier. I like to use a combination of CBT, ERP, and Mindfulness to help reduce anxiety. I am now currently accepting new clients via tele-health.

I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain.

I am a firm believer in thorough evaluation early on in the therapy process. I frequently use my expertise in psychological testing to assist in this diagnostic process to ensure the most effective and appropriate treatments are used. While the human condition allows for great challenges and pain, it also allows for miraculous opportunities for healing and growth. Therapy is a collaborative relationship. I focus treatment on a combination of providing information, skill building, and evidence based treatments. Being tech-interested also helps me connect with younger clients, and bridge the gap of resistance to change or getting help.
