There are circumstances that take us to the edge of our capabilities such as beginning a new phase of life, trauma, illness/loss of a loved one, or changes at home or work. When we're unsure of what to expect, our minds may fill in the uncertainty with unhelpful thoughts that ane often painful and challenging to manage. No matter how "together" we appear, if we're hurting on the inside life can feel overwhelming and exhausting. Asking for help is difficult, especially if you're the person who often helps others. Therapy helps to untangle from these negative beliefs that impact your motivation, decision-making, and self-awareness.

I specialize in helping caregivers of people with a critical illness, such as cancer, manage feelings of anticipatory grief, process their experiences and transition into their "new normal." Additionally, my practice is committed to helping adults with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, sexual abuse and trauma, and challenges within relationships.

My curiosity, compassion, and authenticity provide a comfortable environment to process the issues you're struggling with. I work from a Cognitive-Behavioral and Strengths-Based foundation and focus on the power of resilience. With professional insight and caring support, you can persevere through difficult times with determination and hope.
