As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I offer a therapeutic place for people interested in exploring how the challenges or “symptoms” you are experiencing are preventing you from being your best self. My foundational training as a Clinical Social Worker has been enhanced with advanced trauma training including EMDR, relational / attachment work as a Circle of Security Parent Facilitator, Buddhist psychology and mindfulness. Several modalities inform my practice including somatic healing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and a relational approach leading to a greater sense of feeling grounded and whole.

(At this time I am taking new clients via telehealth or by phone. ) Each one of us has our own personal story, interwoven with the joys and sadness of life. Every client I work with I believe walks through my door so that together we can work on navigating issues, gaining skills and understanding of what they wish to change in their lives. Sometimes it is a subtle change one is looking for, or at other times it is a life changing event that propels us to seek help. Whatever the reason I am here to help people find the change they seek.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives. "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness, effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity.

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.

Everyone has a story incredibly personal to them; a story that is full of many chapters. These chapters hold celebrations, accomplishments, losses, successes, pain, joy, sorrow, hardships, victories, and desires. We often find ourselves stuck in a chapter of our lives requiring support. Our journeys are unique to ourselves yet they are fundamentally connected to one another.
