Has being diagnosed with a chronic illness caused you to feel anxious, isolated, worried, depressed or overwhelmed? Are you having difficulty adjusting or coping with your illness? Having a chronic illness can cause a drastic change in one’s lifestyle, can interfere with employment, interpersonal relationships, and an individual’s independence. As your Coach and Therapist, I use a blend of therapy, coaching, and 30 years of medical expertise, to help you navigate the turbulent path you are on, so you can better manage your chronic illness both physically and psychologically.

I look forward to assisting you through the challenges of life and creating a happier and more empowered tomorrow. I often tell clients we all have 'junk in the trunk', it's often the junk we have not dealt with or avoid that sneaks up on us when we least expect it. It complicates this already complicated thing call 'life'. Let me help you unpack the junk, explore its impact on you and how its impact continues to effect you. Through supportive counseling you can take back the reigns and create positive change.

One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Are you struggling just to get out of bed each morning? Life just feels so full of anxiety and worry, by the end of the day you are left overwhelmed and exhausted. Is every happy moment overshadowed by depression, leaving you feeling like you are missing out on all the important little things in life? I understand the feeling of hopelessness, that nothing will ever get better. If you or your loved one are struggling and on the verge of giving up, it's time for a real change. Happiness is possible, and I would love to illuminate your path to self-discovery.

I also have an extensive background working with adolescents and young adults with substance use and dual diagnosis.
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.

We are all constantly changing. We may have already accomplished goals in our lives, yet are at a crossroads again. This time, we may wish to seek help, whether it’s to develop a goal, figure out what may be a little “off” in our life or maybe some direction with some heavier challenges. I specifically have experience working with substance use disorders, infant mental health and parent-child attachment. I've been trained in Infant Mental Health, Risking Connection, Seeking Safety as well as Circle of Security, but have worked with many individuals and families with varying reasons that brought them to therapy.
