"Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal. "

"Have you noticed that you and your loved one are fighting a lot? Are the number of “off-limits” topics growing? Is your child struggling, and you’re not sure why? Are you feeling unheard and taken for granted? Do you feel unlovable? Somehow defective? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help you achieve courageous love, joyful connection with the people you care about most, and creative solutions that truly meet everyone’s needs.

"My primary focus in therapy - be it with individuals, couples or families - is to support and facilitate my clients in their journey to a deeper understanding and awareness of themselves. This goal is best achieved, I believe, by encouraging self-acceptance, compassion and insight, and by forming with each client a safe and nonjudgmental relationship. It is within this alliance that, together, we can explore, understand, and begin to gently dismantle the obstacles and unproductive patterns of coping that, although once useful - indeed often vital - in dealing with painful life events or childhood relationships, may now be keeping them from enjoying a more fulfilling life."

"Being human means that we all struggle and need support at various times in our lives. You may feel overwhelmed, angry, hopeless or confused. You are likely seeking to feel more balanced and in control. Sharing our experiences with others allows us to understand ourselves more deeply, unburden negative beliefs about ourselves, and access our internal resources in an effort to shift patterns and create meaningful change. I believe strongly in the strength that comes from being vulnerable, and I am committed to offering kindness, compassion, curiosity, and at times, a sense of humor about life, as we enter this partnership together."

"Wholeness leads to healing. I guide my clients to accept all parts of themselves and find balance in their lives. I entered the field of counseling with a passion for treating trauma (big T and little t trauma). Along the way I gathered some exceptional tools for doing so, including EMDR and a somatic approach to psychotherapy. Not so far removed from trauma, I have also developed a specialty in treating addiction of all kinds. I have seen the power of emotional healing to transform people's lives in ways they always wanted but didn't know how. I am here to help whenever the client is ready to do that brave and powerful work."

"To be human is to experience great joy and great pain; sensitive people feel that pain on a deep level that can be overwhelming. Whether your pain stems from traumatic experiences, attachment wounds, or emotional needs that aren’t being met, therapy can help you sit with the pain while still building a meaningful and rich life. Therapy can help you claim your sensitivity for what it is--an exquisite gift to be honored instead of an overwhelming enemy."

"The question I’m always trying to ask as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope quite so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to take so many of those deep breaths. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "
