I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Life Coach. My approach to therapy is to help clients identify, understand, and ultimately change the areas in their lives that have contributed to emotional and relationship pain. I deeply believe that to have the breakthrough we need in current relationships we must understand our history and how it profoundly colors and impacts us as adults. Once we learn to own our history, it no longer owns us.

I provide individual and group therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I do believe that some of the suffering experienced in life oftentimes results from faulty thinking which eventually leads to unwanted emotions and behaviors.

Life is a journey to understand ourselves, our purpose, and how to connect with others. Obstacles such as fears, unhealed wounds, and destructive thinking can impede our well-being. In addition, our fast-paced, high stress, disconnected culture can literally steal our peace. This can result in anxiety, depression and other psychological struggles. My practice is a safe place to pause, pay attention, process, and find coping strategies to manage life well. My approach is collaborative, nonjudgemental and supportive.

Together we will explore where and why you learned those patterns. Once fully understood, you will find the courage to transform those learned patterns into healthier ones. I will then guide you to practice these new and healthier patterns in the therapy room as well as in your life outside the therapy room. Once you transform old patterns of relating into healthier ones, you will feel lighter, more confident and happier.
