I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you are having the same arguments over and over again, you are not alone. I will be with you every step of the way. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples to interrupt repetitive Cycles where one person reaches out in frustration, causing their partner to withdraw and hide out. Couple Therapy doesn't have to be torture, and there doesn't have to be a "bad guy". I have helped couples with a range of issues from Domestic Abuse to infidelity to communication issues. I even use humor sometimes, but we don't waste a moment! I welcome couples who have been in couple therapy before and have almost given up.

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

Through my 27 years of experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings, I have realized that a one-size-fits all model of treatment is not the most effective method of providing support and assisting with change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the latest research on human and brain development, trauma and attachment, as well as the power of unspoken words and actions. I specialize in working with women, going through transitions or relationship trauma, children, teens with emotional and behavior problems and their parents who struggle with divorce, co-parenting and parenting skills.

Does it feel like your body is on overdrive - tense, fearful, unsafe, unrested - like it sometimes has a mind of it's own and is totally out of your control? At times life feels paralyzing and pleasure feels out of reach? I believe that listening more deeply to the body and mind is a critical ingredient for lasting change and finding more control in your life. Through deep therapeutic work and sharing ones story we have the potential to feel less impacted by the past and create a greater capacity to experience joy.

I'm having issues with this relationship. Most therapists don't seem to understand it. I need therapy that is responsive to my specific situation. Family and friends don't seem to understand. Life is just not going as smoothly as I need it to, because my situation is not "mainstream". Do you need guidance to help you get through depression, anger, doubt, or anxiety? Do you deal with self-esteem, relationship, sexual issues, feeling isolated, and feeling separated from larger society? Is this feeling or situation normal?

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.

A lot of times we continue to struggle, not because we don't want to change, but because we don't know how to do things differently. I can teach you tangible skills to have more choice and control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
