I treat alcohol, drug, and eating problems, depression, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, trauma, bariatric surgery patients, and relationship issues. Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.

So much of what life brings us is beyond our control- childhood trauma, loss of our loved ones, difficult transitions that we must make in order to remain true to ourselves or genes that make us susceptible to mental health disorders. In our busy lives, we sometimes forget to take a step back to re-evaluate how we are caring for our mind and heart. 2020 seemed like a call to action for the world to look inward and redefine goals such as our life style, career choices, relationship dynamics and tired old behaviors that get in our way over and over again.

As we move through each day, it is easy to be distracted or pulled away from our center. Therapy is time set aside to slow down and examine what is meaningful. We all get stuck and can feel lost in life. Emotions can overwhelm us and we can feel disconnected and alone. Even, unsure how to move forward- not knowing the next step. When we come together in a supportive environment, healing does take place and shifts do happen in our lives. Reach out to me for a free phone consult to see if counseling is right for you.

Sometimes what brings us to a place of needing help becomes fuel for great transformation. As a therapist, I am in the business of transformation. Often folks come to therapy for relief from certain symptoms or challenges, and understandably so. However, there is also an opportunity in therapy to cultivate a tremendous depth in relationship to ourselves. This depth can infuse our lives with meaning, purpose and a recognition of our intrinsic value in the world. In this light, sometimes our symptoms are signposts telling us that we may be off track. They draw us into change, however uncomfortably. It's an honor to be such a guide.

In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace.

My passion for working with parents, with an emphasis on the transition to parenthood, grew from my own personal experiences as a mother and my professional experiences working with parents in this raw stage. Parenthood can fill us with joy and hope, and it can bring us to our knees in ways we never imagined. It’s my belief that we can lean into the hard parts of parenting, that having a safe place to share our story is essential to growth, and that we can truly thrive in this time in our lives. I provide support for parents at all stages in their journey from preparing to build a family to adjusting to new parenthood and beyond.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.
