Imagine what your life could be like if ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or relationship issues no longer controlled your life. Imagine being able to manage the stressors that continually weigh heavily on you. When you have tried to resolve these issues on your own, but haven't found the result you are looking for, it's time to reach out for support. It's not about working harder, but smarter. My job is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to allow you to find the balance and improvement you have been seeking.

TELETHERAPY ONLY AT THIS TIME. ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Like riding a wild horse galloping through the woods, our mind can take us wherever it wants until we cultivate skills to tame and steer it. Ruminating on big emotions can seem ferocious and unmanageable. After a break up, a diagnosis, a betrayal, a crisis, change or loss you can feel overwhelmed by what your over-heated, Lamborghini brain kicks up. I can help you create a safe space, reduce speed, re-navigate and travel towards a meaningful life.
