I am EMDR-trained and specialize in working with adults struggling with chronic illness and trauma, seniors and adults with disabilities.
Sometimes seeking help can be a very tough and vulnerable process and I want to commend you on reaching out and taking that initiative. I emphasize utilizing a collaborative, warm and supportive approach during therapy sessions so we are able to overcome long standing issues or more recent concerns. I offer a free phone consultation so we can get to know one another and ensure we are a good match for therapy.

I am experienced assisting clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, transitions, and have a special emphasis on seniors and caregivers.
Connecting with others is vital as is connecting with and understanding ourselves. While sharing with loved ones is important, this can sometimes not feel like an option or not meet our needs. Having a competent, compassionate presence in a dedicated space and time allows us to focus more fully on ourselves and what we wish to address. I believe folks have the capabilities to affect change in themselves and their lives. Therapy is a support and space in which to do this.

Creativity. It's one of our most precious birthrights. Yet when we suffer, we often forget that there is a solution to every problem. All problems in living can be thought of as a failure of the imagination, an inability to envision solutions, garner resources, or initiate movement. As a therapist I have honed the skill of generating creative solutions through traditional talk therapies and with expressive art. Through the utilization of visual arts, imagery, music, dreamwork, and writing, I can teach you how to use your own creativity as a tool for self-discovery, expression, and most importantly, integration.

I have experience working with adults, seniors, adolescents, people struggling with addiction, people with disabilities including specific experience in issues related to blindness, people with chronic illness, and people struggling with dementia or brain injury.
I believe we all have good intentions. I've been working in counseling for 15 years, and I've found that everyone is trying to do what they feel is right. Unfortunately, experiences that shaped us and the environment in which we were raised can lead us to question what we believe to be right. This confusion can lead to depression, anxiety, attention deficit, and addiction. I love working with clients who know what they want to do and who they want to be, but are struggling to make that happen. Contact me. Let's work together to create your best, most authentic self.

Life is hard, work can be stressful, parenting can be chaotic, relationships can be confusing, and sometimes we are just not okay! Therapy can be a place where you learn more about yourself, your family of origin and the world around you. Even though life is hard we can still have peace. With a mindfulness approach, we can help you find your safe place. We can change how you relate to the world and your suffering in a manner that benefits you. In a life that can sometimes be a rollercoaster, we will work together to handle the ups and downs.

If you have tried everything you can think of and are still stuck we might be a fit. Change begins with awareness of one's self. The only requirement is that I become willing to change the way I see myself, others, and my expectations about how life should be. Nearly all behaviour is learned and therefore can be considered for change. Present moment awareness and a non-judgmental perspective can create the potential to see deeply into one's needs and wants.
