About

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you've imagined. Are you at a crossroads in your life? Are you feeling stuck and wish you could change your perspective? Are you overwhelmed by emotions that make it challenging to navigate through life? You might be struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, past or current traumatic events, or everyday life stressors. If so, you probably are seeking peace of mind, gratitude, hope, inner strength, and healthy coping skills. If this sounds like you, I welcome the opportunity to assist you on your path towards healing.
My area of specialization is working with those who are recently bereaved and those with trauma histories. I have extensive experience assisting survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault, and those with long standing depression and anxiety. For the past few years my area of focus has been child therapy, family therapy, and young women's issues.
I believe the therapeutic relationship can promote healing from within, and can enhance relationships with others. I approach the counseling process with a zen-like philosophy and am always willing to learn from my clients, both children and adults. If you are interested in a free phone screening to see if we are a good fit, please reach out.
