For children, behavioral problems may arise or difficulties with school work and peer relationships develop.
The therapeutic process can be an amazing and enlightening experience if you're willing to look within. Through individual, couples and family/group psychotherapy, we provide clients with a non-judgmental, empathetic, safe space to gain self-awareness and insight. Together we can explore those life experiences that have been tucked away in the back of your mind that you've been avoiding for years. Having a supportive therapist can provide the security and support needed to deal with past traumas that when left unprocessed can change the way in which you navigate the world.

I also work with children and adolescents to address emotional, social and behavioral issues, as well as family crises like separation/divorce, illness, and grief.
Adult clients come to me when feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Others are coping with trauma, loss, relationship issues, parenting struggles, or a major life change. Using a variety of approaches, I help clients gain insight and self-acceptance, to navigate life transitions from a position of strength, to grow in relationships, and to make meaning from loss. Therapy is a wonderful form of self-care. Whether you are in crisis or just feeling stuck, I strive to be an honest, accepting, and active partner in your journey to greater fulfillment.

I team with adults, children, and parents to create solutions and awaken aspects of themselves they would like to grow. We work together to heal past pain, strengthen, and to build a fresh start. Our sessions will allow you to take time for yourself to step away from the expectations and pressures of the outside world so that you can feel, see, and build a stronger self. Taking a break from work, school, and life for one or two sessions a week allows for clarity of mind, strengthening of self, and a generation of a new mindset. I will work as your guide in providing you the tools you need to live your life more fully.

Whether you are considering counseling for yourself, your child or your relationship, I look forward to connecting with you.
Welcome! I work with individuals, children, adults, and couples experiencing life changes big and small. A hard loss, new baby, scary diagnosis, or a traumatic experience can all be sources of stress and can bring up lots of emotions. We will work through these events and reactions together, in a safe, non-judgmental, and fully supportive space. Even when it may seem impossible, I will support you to grow through the difficulties you’ve faced.

My approach is to be honest, direct, while creating an environment for openness and collaborating with clients on their goals. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the theoretical approach of preference.

Both Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and Major Depressive Disorder flare up in the Fall. Consider making a small change in your environment like adding art to your sleeping area or tossing a piece of furniture or decor that no longer fits who you are. Making subtle updates to your home or work space can improve your mood a bit. Give it a try!
