Are you feeling stuck, defeated, and struggling to manage your or your child's emotions? It can be hard just to make it through the day. I know life is really hard and we are all facing challenging times. Taking that first step to ask for help can be difficult, you are not alone. I think everyone would be surprised at actually how many of us need and can use a little extra support, whether it be for yourself or your child. You don't have to continue to feel this way.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families.
Does life sometimes seem challenging and unpredictable? Sometimes big feelings can come up making it feel challenging to work through alone. I strive to provide a safe, caring, and supportive environment to help my clients gain perspective, identify strengths, and learn skills to help them work through their struggles. Life is a continuous journey, and the ability to find, explore, and accept one’s self is difficult yet also rewarding and important.

For psychotherapy, my speciality is in working with college-age/young adults, but I see children as young as 11.
Deciding to seek psychological services can be a difficult step. When looking for therapy, the right clinician/client match is essential.

With over 20 years of experience, have successfully treated people with low self-esteem, assertiveness difficulties, loss/grief, guilt, eating disorders, emotional eating, binge-eating, anxiety, panic, life transitions, divorce/separation, obsessive thinking, relationship struggles, "quarter-life crisis," and depression.

Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.
