I work with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, chronic illness, adjustment to college, work stresses, and other major life transitions and stresses.
As of 8/25/21 not accepting new clients. Everyone strives for growth, and we all have resilience, but when you're feeling overwhelmed or emotionally hurt, it can be hard to find that resilience. But that's also when you can have the greatest capacity for change. Something is motivating you to seek help; whatever is it, you don’t have to go it alone. I provide an emotionally safe, caring, and non-judgmental space where we can work together to find your unique path forward.

My work as a therapist is guided by the values of authenticity and respect. I offer a safe and supportive environment for self-examination and growth, and work in partnership with you to determine your own unique needs for healing. I often hear that there is pressure to enter counseling with a firm knowledge of what you want to talk about or accomplish. I view our sessions as a place to figure these things out together, and encourage you to bring any questions and uncertainties into the process. I truly enjoy my work and feel strongly that meaningful connection between individuals and community is restorative.

A difficult diagnosis (chronic illness, Autism) can push us to our tipping point.
Overwhelmed with parenthood? Struggling to understand your child’s behavior? Dealing with postpartum depression? You probably imagined parenthood looking quite different. There is no easy fix for managing anxiety surrounding pregnancy, the postpartum period, or infant/early childhood challenges. There is no instruction manual to open when your child is struggling with anxiety, behavioral challenges, or a developmental delay. Your parental instinct is simply to help your baby get better. Whether that baby is an infant, toddler, or school-aged, your goal is to get to the root of the struggle - and ensure a successful & happy future.

I do not limit my practice to serving only those who consider themselves “a person with a disability;” however, I do appreciate that EVERYONE has their own set of strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to help the individuals I work with identify and enhance their strengths so they can more efficiently use them to minimize the effects of weaknesses as barriers to achieving their goals and improved quality of life. To achieve these outcomes, I rely upon evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions, including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy that are tailored to each client’s unique history, present concerns, and future plans.

Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back.
