My role as a therapist is not about helping others. It is about giving guidance and focusing on self-empowerment to my clients so they can have the tools to assist themselves. Prior to private practice, I worked at treatment facilities for both substance abuse and eating disorders, worked with victims of crimes (domestic violence and sexual abuse), and a suicide hotline.

All of life's unknowns can be terrifying, but everything you want for yourself to live your best life is on the other side of fear. Often it requires us to be much more compassionate with ourselves on our way towards growth. Compassion to recognize that growth takes time and moving from point A to Z doesn’t happen overnight. Change is clearly not easy. If it were there would be no need for anyone’s assistance as we grow and change. When we distract ourselves in any way, such as with tv, cleaning, alcohol, or any other means of checking out, we are in a state of avoidance.

Therapy for Individuals, Couples, and Families. You are here reading about me because you have likely been suffering – individually or with the ones you love. I have always said “We are messy people…” Our feelings, thoughts, actions often cause unintended conflict – miscommunication devolving into an increasing distance with those we intend to be closer to. Sound familiar? I have been an active advocate for families for over 30 years and a psychotherapist for nearly 20 years with a private practice focusing on Marital and Family discord, trauma recovery, severe depression, the treatment of anxiety disorders and chemical dependency

ATTENTION THOSE STRUGGLING WITH FOOD OBSESSION & HATING YOUR BODY: You are ready for a change. It's time. Maybe you've been stuck restricting, emotional eating, binging, or over-exercising. You work hard to stick to the plan, but you just feel like you can’t be trusted around food. On the outside, everything looks great. People think you “have it all” but inside it feels like you’re a total fraud. Each day, you're determined to do things differently, to finally get things “under control,” but you're trapped on this never-ending cycle. You know there's got to be a better way, but you have no idea where to start.

You feel isolated. You don't recognize yourself after this loss. People are telling you things that are more hurtful than helpful. You are not who you were before your loss but you still aren't sure who you are now, or who you will become. You miss your loved one and want to tell others the story of how they died, how important they were to you, and how much this sadness impacts your life but you feel like they don't want to truly listen. You may even take care of others by not talking about your grief when that's all you actually want to do.

The decision to seek therapy can be one of the most important steps we take on the path to emotional wellness. It's also a decision that often comes about after a great deal of contemplation and reflection. I believe this path can ultimately lead to a more enriched and authentic life, as well as a new found inner truth and self-awareness. By addressing core issues that we often overlook, we can open the door for improvement not only within ourselves but also in our relationships with others.
