Together, we can go deep to find the roots of the challenges or we can stay solution-focused and come up with co-parenting plans, family conflict resolutions or learn effective coping strategies for their particular challenges.
People tend to find me at some point on their journey when they need calm and direct guidance. They are usually in a time of deep pain and confusion, whether they are divorcing, watching their teens struggle, trying to blend a family, feeling utterly depressed and lost, struggling in junior high or high school or figuring out college.

I have 8 years of experience working with the following problem areas: Anger Management, Anxiety, Assertiveness Skills, Cultural Issues/Immigration, Depression, Family Conflict, Identity Formation, Life Transitions, Relationship Health (Couples, Family, Peer), Religious Issues, Schizophrenia, Self Esteem, and Self-Harm.
Relationships move us, give us life, and can even suck the life out of us. We were made for them. That is why I specialize in them -- relationships with friends, family, colleagues, ourselves, our higher power. Properly realigning these problematic, strained, estranged relationships transforms your suffering into purposeful, worthwhile living. Ultimately your fullest life is my goal as your therapist. The greatest gift you can bring to your relationships is you. The best gift you can give the world is your relationships. What will you choose to do with these two important aspects of your one life?

As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin.

In-person and telehealth available. I work with adolescents, adults and couples. We all experience anxiety, depression, anger, stress and sometimes the trauma that can occur in our families, our relationships, our friendships, our workplaces and our everyday lives. Some of these stressors are triggered when we break-up, begin a new relationship, start a new job, start at a new school. Some individuals need to be sat with and have a space held for them, some are looking for collaborative support and guidance on their life's struggles.

Whenever people come to see me, I am always impressed by their courage. No matter what the problems are, most everyone enters therapy from a confused and vulnerable space. To do so takes courage. In knowing this, I work to honor their vulnerability and courage. I know that by providing a grounded, attentive, and focused presence to those I work with, trust will occur between us, and we can all be more free to address whatever the pain may be. Without this foundation of trust, I will not be able to effectively help at all.

Are you HAPPY? In my 35 years in private practice I have found that what most people are looking for is HAPPINESS. 2020 was the hardest year in so many ways. Many people have lost HOPE and JOY. Through my personal work in my own therapy and studying with Tibetan Masters and Native Elders I have been blessed with the secret of finding HAPPINESS. It is my life's work to share how to find that inner joy and sense of purpose. I believe that EMPATHY is the key to healthy,communicative relationships. I studied with Dr. Marshall Rosenberg and intergrated his techniques for Non-Violent Communication Skills in my work.
