Is Social Media, Gaming, Smartphone use or other Internet based activity dominating your life? Are your friends and/or family complaining that you are always in front of a screen? Do you have a child you think is addicted to technology or being negatively impacted by overuse? Do you describe yourself as addicted? Perhaps you could benefit from treatment. As the founder of Eyes Up Wellness I work with individuals and families to help them find a balance between healthy and adaptive use of technology versus unhealthy overuse, dependence, and addiction. Using technology is unavoidable but compulsive or addictive use can be overcome.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the first step toward improving your life. If you've come this far, you may be looking for support in your life to overcome or process a recent life transition, challenge, or enhance relationships with the ones you love. I am here to provide a safe and nurturing environment to explore and assist in finding new perspectives or areas for growth. I strive to meet my clients where they are, to build strength and resilience, while collaborating to change cycles of interaction that may keep them stuck and disconnected. I see families/individuals as beings desiring connection, love, and resolution.
Are you feeling stuck in life? Or perhaps experiencing emotional distress that is interfering with your quality of life?

Self-expression with validation allows for the growth of confidence and reduction of self-defeating behaviors. As a team we can create coping skills that are the key to success.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who brings many years of experience working with adults, children and adolescents and their families.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a specialty in Body-Centered Psychotherapy. By combining a traditional approach with a knowledege of an energy based focus, I am able to view my clients from a broader perspective.
I work with individuals, couples and families who are seeking solutions to their problems with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, illnesses, work related issues and creative blocks.
Clients often seek psychotherapy because something feels “off” or there are struggles which result in developmental and life transitions in their families. Unexplored behavioral and emotional responses can keep us feeling “stuck” and prevent us from fulfilling relationships and careers. Each client is unique and there is no such thing as “one size, fits all” therapy. I provide both long-term and shorter term support for clients facing setbacks/life changes. Therapy should help clients find a lifelong “compass” with which to navigate life's transitions.
I believe that each of my patients is unique. I treat my patients with care and respect and help them to resolve their issues. If necessary, I have a network of respected professionals who can also make themselves available to my patients.
I am an experienced, licensed psychotherapist who works with adults of all ages in a non-judgemental, interactive and supportive manner. My areas of specialization include, but are not limited to the following: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work-related problems, self-esteem issues, life transitions and loss.
All of us face difficult transitions in life. Either negative or positive change can create overwhelming feelings of loss or anxiety. I specialize in helping people cope with the feelings that change can bring. Using a multifaceted approach, people are able to move through obstacles and fears, adapting to change in a more positive way.
Treatment of anxiety disorders is a major focus of mine. People are often surprised to learn how much control they can exert over anxiety using cognitive behavioral and other techniques. By using an individualized program of successive steps toward mastery, anxiety loses its power.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, uninspired? As your therapist I am here to assure you that our purpose is to live with ease and in alignment with who we really are.
