Families are constantly growing and evolving. You've seen it as parents: once you think you have something figured out, your child goes and changes it up and the cycle begins again. During this process it's common for families to get stuck. You've run out of ideas or are too emotionally drained to find a solution. I'm here to help guide your family through those sticky times. I work with children, adolescents, adults and families. I specialize in anxiety, depression, social concerns, family issues, sensory integration and emotional regulation. I will provide gentle encouragement to assist in your process towards change

Most conflict involves relationship: a relationship with ourselves, our parents, our children, our lovers, our bosses, our co-workers. This is the one area where education fails us. We inhabit an adult body with a child's knowledge of how to interact with the world and ourselves and that is where a therapist's knowledge can be beneficial. "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it" (Rumi). I can help a client find and diminish those barriers.

My therapeutic approach is best described as eclectic--a unique and constantly shifting balance among the various humanistic schools. Therapy involves multiple levels of interrelated change: emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual. In order to be effective it must revolve around client needs and desires; decisions about counseling goals and practices are therefore developed jointly. I greatly enjoy helping others as they grow, change and heal-both internally and in relation to the people and institutions which fill their lives. I welcome challenge, value collaborative relationships with clients, peers, and community alike, and I maintain a firm belief in the resiliency of all.

Anxiety and Depression are just overwhelming and it makes it hard to connect to loved ones, get daily tasks done, and think clearly. You notice yourself feeling so disconnected. And you are finding it hard to have the drive to get things done. Where is the joy in life? You remember enjoying things but now everyday is just gray.

Many times our discontent in the present is tethered to traumatic events in our past.

The deeper the wounding, the more profound the negative impacts can be in your present life. The miracle of therapy offers you the power to rewrite your past and reprogram your future.
