Through agencies like CALM and Family Service Agency, I've worked with clients recovering from trauma, those adapting to the challenges of co-parenting, teens navigating new social environments, caretakers of aging loved ones, and individuals experiencing anxiety and depression through life transitions.
Are you experiencing emotional pain that has become too amplified to sustain in silence? Perhaps the burdens you have been carrying for so long are finally too heavy to manage alone. Unresolved past experiences, loss, dysfunctional relationships, and negative self-criticism can hinder our ability to recover from the difficulties life throws our way. Let’s work together to create a therapeutic relationship built on hope and trust.

Every person is unique, and what one needs to heal and feel whole is also unique. I see each of my clients as the individuals that they are, and work with them using the method and process best for their healing and personal growth. Therapy is a process where alchemy can occur; together we can allow for this process, and the healing begins here. I use a Client Centered approach and integrate Family Systems, Dreamwork, EMDR, play therapy, and some astrology if the client requests this.

Spending time with my family is one my favorite, as well as being involved in musical and dramatic arts.
I want to create a relationship with my clients based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional regard. I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference.

Addictive behaviors and life transitions are specialties of mine, particularly with adolescents and their families.
My primary focus in therapy is on the problems that develop in intimate relationships. In today's world the interactions within the couple relationship are impacted by rapidly changing societal patterns and many conflicting demands and pressures. Partners also bring their own family and psychological histories that cause problems in relating that are often subtle and confusing. I use a non-judgmental, compassionate approach to help intimate partners, married, considering marriage, or contemplating separation or divorce, work through their problems and find a path forward to the happiest present, and future possible.
