"Life's transitions can be tough to navigate on your own - the teenage years, becoming a college student, graduating as a young adult, entering adulthood, and even starting your own business. The pressure to succeed can weigh you down and inhibit you from stepping outside of your comfort zone. All of us need someone to share our inner world with, especially during transitions – the good, the bad, and the in-between. Not only can we explore tools to use when you are feeling down, but also ways to cherish the positives of life. We can work together to increase resiliency, self-compassion, and inspiration."

"My passion is working with clients in a way that will not only facilitate emotional healing, but will allow them to feel more connected to their bodies in order to foster a greater sense of wellbeing. This type of therapy is particularly helpful for clients who have experienced trauma and have felt subsequent physical symptoms, and can also be impactful for people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and other stressors. I strive to help clients regain a sense of confidence and purpose, and over all wellbeing."

"First, you probably need to know this right now... that you were created to be loved! Next, in therapy, real growth and change is influenced significantly by what you feel and think about your therapist. You need to feel safe, understood, validated, cared for, and able to trust the competency and selflessness of your therapist. Please feel free to come for a free introductory meeting with me. With deep care, compassion, understanding, and respect, I help you transition from surviving to thriving in relationships and life. I specialize in broken relationships or those struggling with past trauma or abuse."

"Stepfamily life is challenging. You may very well be wondering how you're going to do this. It looks like it "should" be easier than it is, and that you "should" be able to figure this out. Your loved one cannot understand why you struggle. But I do. I've been there and it is why I help couples dealing with stepfamily life. You are going through challenges that simply do not occur in a first family. Learning about these dynamics and working with them creates more remarriage success. I can help you."

"I specialize in helping clients heal their wounded inner child. This wounding may show up as depression, anxiety, or PTSD in adulthood. I use an approach I developed which I call Heart-based therapy. This approach focuses on healing the shadows in our subconscious by infusing it with loving energies from the superconscious, which I believe resides in our heart. It is experiential (felt and experienced) and somatic/body-oriented (releasing emotional pain which is stored in our bodies). I don't focus on analyzing nor intellectualizing your past. We visit the past to let go of any pain or heal trauma."

"Are you looking for a psychologist who will understand you and your situation? The single-best predictor of therapuetic success is the strength of the therapist-client relationship. I use the term "client" rather than "patient" because it reflects my belief in you, who is deserving of unconditional positive regard, empathy and non-judgement. Sometimes life presents us with situations beyond our ability to cope effectively on our own, it is wise to reach out for help. Please call or email me for a free consultation to decide if you feel I am the right guide for you on your path toward the life you are. "
