I have special interest and skillsets working with couples and families living with chronic illness and disablement experiences.
I believe the stories we tell about ourselves are powerful. My job is to support persons in the amazing process of authoring themselves. I use strengths-based approaches to individual, couples, family, and group therapy. Relationships are a focus of my work, especially romantic relationships, parent-child and sibling relationships. I am always excited to meet a new person to walk alongside for a while in their unique journey of growth and exploration.

Relational stresses, depression, grief - specifically the challenges of parenting including perinatal mood and anxiety disorders as well as parenting a child with a long term chronic illness or disability.
Even strong, smart successful people know when to utilize the help of experts. Maybe you’re not in crisis, just a couple in a “good enough” relationship, but some of the time things get painfully off track. Or an individual whose life seems to be going pretty well on the outside – but privately, you’re hurting. Sometimes, your ways of “getting by” turn into habits that need to be amended. It’s not always clear how to go about initiating change and it helps to have an objective perspective. Counseling is a great way to improve your life. Together we will explore, identify, and rebuild habits and patterns to provide lasting change.

I am a Trauma and Chronic Illness specialist and use powerful tools to make big changes in your mind, body and life.
You are tired of feeling held back by pain from the past and fear of the future. They impact your mind and body daily, and you feel stuck and afraid of where it might lead. You can't seem to make changes, and are becoming more and more frustrated with yourself. You know this isn't your fault, but it really feels that way sometimes. You have trouble relaxing, and either feel numb or panicked most of the time. You want to make big changes in your life but aren't sure where to start. Problems with anxiety, trauma and/or health can feel insurmountable, like there is no possible way to change. You end up feeling overwhelmed most days.

After any stressful or distressing event such as being diagnosed with a chronic illness, losing a loved one, or going through a divorce, life as we know it changes instantly. The life we once knew, or dreamed about, is suddenly shattered, which can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, angry, or downright hopeless. Although we may find ourselves on a new life journey, one we didn’t ask for by the way, who says this new path can’t be a path worth walking down? If we can accept this possibility then we open the door for hope and a new reality that can hold space for both pain and happiness, sorrow and joy, anxiety and peace.

As a systemic and attachment-based therapist, I believe we are all looking for connection, belonging, and acceptance. However old we are – infant, child, teen, or adult – we need to make sense of what happens to us, inside of us, and in our relationships. Our life experiences shape us in profound ways; our sense of self, and how we manage emotions, respond to stress and connect with others. When life experiences are adverse, our body and brain can make meaning in ways that can cause distress. I help clients connect with their innate ability to change and heal difficult experiences so they can find peace and self-worth at any age.

You made it home. Everybody is glad you're back but you're miserable - and guilty - because you'd rather be there than here. You have relationship, porn and alcohol problems and miss the structure that got you through every day. Most of all, you miss your friends. They're the only ones who really get it: Going into an insurgents house, you know there's a change in plan just by reading your Sergeant's eyes. Going into your house, your partner can talk for hours and you still don't know what they want! No wonder you watch the war channel all night.
