Licensed Professional Counselor, MEd, MA, CAGS, LPC, RYT 200
I am Holistic Counselor and use an holistic approach to psychotherapy which targets the mind, body and spirit. I combine traditional therapies with spiritual and innovative practices in a safe supportive environment. I use a person-centered process to help guide clients toward healing and self-fulfillment. My focus is to assist clients with personal self-growth, self confidence, mid-life challenges and relationship issues. I am open to individuals, couples, and families.
Has life become more about routine, or survival instead of living out the dreams you once had? Or perhaps you are living in fear of the future? My goal is to bring out the best version of you, and as a result, help you feel amazing. During our sessions, we will work together to get to the root of the issue. We will also work on improving your current state of mind. This process will make you excited about the future and provide you with a more positive outlook on life. I offer individual therapy for anxiety, depression, ADHD and relationship struggles.

Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker currently accepting clients ages 12 and over, couples, and families, for virtual therapy. Depression, anxiety, shame about the past, fear about the future, and insecurities prevent us from being present and thriving in life. I provide a safe, understanding space for you to be heard, to explore, to feel, and to learn.
You tell yourself that you wont reach your goals. You predict what will happen and constantly ask “but what if...” You feel like something is broken or missing. You don't feel good enough. Despite your accomplishments, you feel like a failure. You put other peoples needs first. These thoughts have taken over and keep you up at night. I am here to help.
Have you wondered where your life is going and found that personal difficulties have gotten in your way? My clients come to see me with issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship, children and many other issues. I see symptoms as an opportunity for growth. Therapy, like life, is a journey with definite stages. Initially, I work with the individual in talking about their life and issues of concern. The next stage involves processing and healing the stuck places. As this occurs, I see people then ready to find their resources, living into their goals, their essence, their being.
NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1995 and am also a certified Grief Counselor. I offer therapeutic services that emphasize quality of life, living life by life's terms and learning the skills for maintaining a healthy self within a marriage, family and other significant relationships. By focusing on the present yet acknowledging and accepting past patterns of behavior, my clients are able to make better choices that support healthier relationships.

I am a seasoned, addictions and mental health professional, utilizing a holistic, client-centered and non-judgmental approach.
Are you struggling with the decision to pursue therapy for the first time, try again following an unsatisfying experience; or, resume therapy? Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief/loss, mood fluctuations, life transitions, or the effects of trauma (past or present), you need not go it alone. Sharing your concerns/burdens in a confidential setting with a person dedicated to providing validation, problem-solving, as well as support in implementing positive change, may help you clear the path to your goals.
Sometimes in life it seems like nothing can go right, that one bad day turned into a week and now a year, your thoughts aren’t even making sense! Other times everything is going well, you couldn’t ask for a more “perfect” life but inside it doesn’t feel quite right.
"Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up". Life is a journey with many hurdles and potholes, but these challenges are also tremendous learning and growing opportunities. I support people with a wide range of challenges and have witnessed amazing transformations.
I am a licensed social worker (LMSW) and Reiki Master. I have a deep passion for working with both adults and teens. Whatever the situation, if you're feeling anxious, discouraged, and even hopeless, I see and honor you. It is important to have someone with you to sit with you in the discomfort and pain. I am ready to walk with you and guide you through your journey towards healing and growth. With an emphasis on holistic healing, I focus on the mind/body connection in order to help you come back to full alignment.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who employs a family systems theoretical perspective in doing counseling with adults, adolescents, and children. Depending upon the particular client, I will conduct individual, couple/marital, or family sessions to help individuals gain insight into the dynamics of his or her family of origin. This approach includes an examination of the manner in which these behavior patterns are currently influencing the client's relationships with dating partners, spouses, children, in-laws, friends, co-workers, supervisors, employers, and other significant individuals in the client's life.
I believe that we all encounter obstacles in our lives in which we need additional guidance. Sometimes support may be short-term, working through a life change; sometimes longer in duration in order to explore patterns of behavior. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental environment where together we can focus on ways to improve coping skills, relationships, and overall quality of life.
I am an experienced, engaging therapist who brings warmth, humor, creativity, hope, and compassion into my practice. I am dedicated to helping rebuild, strengthen, and empower individuals and families who have felt lost or been hit by life's challenges. I have extensive experience in working with young individuals and families who have experienced significant loss or trauma, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. I specialize in early childhood, attachment, developmental/ behavioral issues, trauma in infancy/ early childhood, issues around adoption, and in helping parents develop insight and understanding into their child's behavior and experiences.
Depression, anxiety, panic and poor self-esteem can have a profound effect on our day to day lives. Reaching out to someone new can be difficult even when we feel our best. The courage you present by making such an important phone call is tremendous. I am honored to be able to help when you call. Please note I can only bill for ANTHEM insurance.
At Pathways we believe that everyone has within themselves the potential for personal growth. Through forming a partnership with our patients, we strive to guide and empower them to work through obstacles they face. Our mission truly lies in our name, as we help each individual create their own pathway for change. We are committed to maintaining your privacy and realize that Trust, Respect and Confidentiality form the foundation of this partnership.
It is my primary goal as a therapist to help individuals establish personal and obtainable goals specific to their concerns, needs, and abilities. It is vital that in doing this, I am there as a guide and supportive figure only; their accomplishments will be of their own doing. The "game-changers" for my clients are the "AHA" moments; the moments they find themselves thinking about something differently from before. That moment can change a person, and it can change their destiny.
Welcome. Choosing a therapist is an important and positive step toward healing and growth. I provide therapy for individual clients and couples to help reduce distress and to assist them in moving from where they are to where they want to be. This is done in the safe, understanding, and non-judgmental environment that is essential for success.
