****Evening and weekend appointments available.****Do you feel overwhelmed, disconnected, and insecure? Has your relationship been wounded or lost its spark? Has becoming or being a parent turned your world upside down? Life is full of transitions and stressors and it’s hard to stay in tune with ourselves, our partners, and our family members as we grow, change, and deal with stress. Sometimes we all need a safe space to process, reconnect, and heal – to speak our pain, communicate what we need, and be supported as we tap back into love and connection.

Honest, Real, Change. This is how I would define my style of counseling. I received my specialty training in cognitive-behavioral therapy and I am well versed in motivational interviewing. I have developed a style that is down to earth, which focuses on working with the skills that an individual already possesses, while developing the abilities they need to bring them to the next level. I also help solve issues in the "here and now" while working on other skills that can/should be develop in the future. Reaching out can be hard to do but it is important.

Hello, welcome to my practice. In our time together, my goal is for you to experience yourself as a unique individual along with understanding that there is nothing uniquely wrong with you. People are often judged for having problems. if you use insurance to pay for sessions, therapists are required to give you a diagnosis, indicating what is wrong and what needs to be fixed. This is not the way I look at people. There is no one who is free from suffering, which is not even the problem. Instead our "struggles" stem from a lack of compassion towards ourselves.

By practicing for over 16 years, I have found that people change by feeling motivated and by seeing the benefit of making a difficult change. I provide psychotherapy that offers motivational treatment to utilize strengths and help you decide what changes to make and how you will go about it. Using a solution-focused method of treatment, I see the work of a therapist as a collaborative partner in the process of change. I believe in increasing mind-body awareness to assist in the change process. Together, we can diminish maladaptive coping mechanisms and build healthy, productive strategies toward change.
