"I offer a heartfelt approach to therapy that is warm, engaged, and focused on getting to the root of whatever issues you want to address. Often we are scared to face our upsetting thoughts and feelings alone. I feel honored to be able to accompany people on this journey as a companion and experienced guide. In this role I will help you to process unresolved feelings, utilize your strengths and change patterns that are no longer working for you so that you can better meet life's challenges and joys."

"I don't know how I can help you. That's right, I said I DON'T know how I can help you. No experienced therapist knows how to help someone before that person shows up in the therapist's office and reveals who they are. Each person comes in with a different set of life-experiences, different struggles and hopes, and different ways of coping with life. This doesn't mean that I won't be able to help you. I have 40+ years experience helping people gain strength, focus, and the confidence to overcome obstacles that impede success."

"Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with people to get in touch with the most authentic and real parts of themselves. Sometimes these parts get buried because of how we've felt hurt or misunderstood in life. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless."

"Are you feeling overwhelmed and under-resourced? Are you struggling to balance your own needs with those of your baby? Does it seem like everyone knows something about motherhood that you don't? Becoming a mother is monumental, life-changing and sometimes disappointing. Nearly 1 in 5 mothers experience Anxiety and Depression after the birth/adoption of a baby. It is the most common complication post birth. You don't have to be alone with your experience. I will be with you and help you find your feet again."

"Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined. "

"I firmly believe that as hard as they are, difficult times are here to teach us something about ourselves. Every struggle can be seen as an opportunity to discover that which is holding us back, and the potential we carry inside. Often times, it is difficult to see a way out because pain, fear, and shame have a way of blindfolding us, taking away hope and clear vision. This is where I can help. I bring intelligence, compassion, and a discerning ear to help you illuminate your blind spots and find your way to healing."

Children come in for school problems, behavioral problems or mood disturbances including anxiety. I provide support and coaching for parents along side the therapy for their children. Adults come to see me for desire to live with less pain, more peace. Couples engage in work to improve communication or manage a stress that is effecting the relationship. The therapeutic relationship is a powerful medium for change. Regardless of the reason for starting therapy, most people get tremendous relief."

"Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and supporting people to live more authentically. In my practice I emphasize working with children and adolescents. One of the most essential developmental tasks for young people is to discover who they are. Therapy is profoundly well fit for this process. Developing an understanding of one's emotional landscape at a young age allows for greater maturity and authentic decision making. Therapy helps young people unravel complex family dynamics, thus increasing genuine individuality. The outcome is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep satisfaction."
