Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

In my experience working in the mental health field for the last decade, therapy is often sought after someone has suffered long enough or until the symptoms become unmanageable. It is my hope that as we continue to destigmatize mental health more people can feel comfortable utilizing this valuable service as a preventative measure and not as a last resort. My approach as a therapist is simple: helping others increase awareness and insight into their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Together, we can explore what those thoughts and feelings are, how best to understand them, learn about treatment approaches, and set goals. I enjoy helping build a support network that has your best interest at heart, and allows you to share your experience with those supports in a way that gives you choice and dignity. LGBTQAI+ affirming and compassionate care is the standard here, as is support around accessing reproductive healthcare.

No one understands what you are going through like you do. It's hard to focus on life when we are grieving a loss or feeling unfulfilled. Often, all we need is a person who helps us navigate our difficult feelings and find motivation in moving forward. I enjoy working with both adults and children with histories of complex trauma, addictions, grief, sexual health, and complex medical histories. With previous work experience in healthcare, I use a realistic situational approach that focuses on empowerment strategies that help adults and children navigate the difficult stages of both grief and daily life.

People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face.

We all face difficult times in life but when it becomes harder to face life's challenges, depression or anxiety may be a factor. I view therapy as not only an opportunity to learn techniques to manage and cope with symptoms of depression and anxiety, but also as a journey of self exploration, awareness/understanding, and growth. While we can't change the past, we CAN heal contributing factors to depression/anxiety, such as family/relationship problems, trauma/abuse, substance abuse, codependency, and grief. My style is empathetic and supportive, providing a non-judgmental atmosphere for personal growth and change.

Welcome. I am a Clinical Psychologist who approaches counseling as a natural occurrence existing within contemporary life. Sometimes, circumstances can become overwhelming when old tools are not up to the task, or there simply are no tools. I travel respectfully through evolving lives with compassion and humor to address: relationship issues, pain, divorce, transitions, depression, sexual identity, PTSD, anxiety, grief, careers, food, addictions and substance abuse. Whether working short-term or longer, ongoing or intermittent, my clients learn to access their own internal and natural resources, revealing fresh insights that provide the clarity needed to move forward.

I believe in order to make changes in our lives, we must first examine the impact that past relationships, experiences, and environments have had on us. The therapeutic process allows us to examine and process how things that have happened to us can impact who we are as individuals and integrate the past into who we are in the present. The therapeutic relationship can help us to identify sources of resilience and strength that can help us to overcome past negative experiences. By connecting our past with who we are in the present, we can start the process of change.

I work with individuals of all ages and the families with whom they are connected. Solutions are best when the individual issues are addressed and then integrated into a healthy family system. When one person changes, others can no longer maintain the same patterns. Trauma is often at the core of dysfunction. Poor boundaries, misdirected emotion and communication breakdowns create a toxic environment that stifles growth and potential. A variety of techniques are applied to open the heart, clear the mind, modify behaviors and rebuild positive interactions.
