Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

My approach is empathetic, compassionate, analytical and straightforward. I have a decade of experience in working with various specialties but the principal of my work has been to go deep and connect the conscious to the unconscious. With kindness, warmth and humor I provide a safe and supportive environment in therapy.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Or perhaps, you’re struggling with both. You experience excessive worry & thought traps that you can’t seem to get out of. You ruminate about issues from the past, present, & worry about all the future “what if’s.” You feel mentally & emotionally exhausted. Your heart races, you’re restless, you have trouble concentrating, & panic attacks creep in without warning. It’s a real pain the butt, just like depression! When you’re feeling depressed, doing basic things can be really, really hard. The low self-esteem, lack of motivation & bully in your head are crippling. It's exhausting...

So, you are browsing for someone to help you. There are many here who can, myself included. Effective therapy is first and foremost about good fit. Can we collaborate on a solution for you? Do I care enough to hear what you are saying and feel what you are not ready to say? Am I patient enough to give you time to share in your own time and in your own way? Am I willing to be directive when you most need it, even though you may not want that? In a word, "Yes."

A large part of my life's purpose is to help women, men, and couples cope with and heal from life's traumas. I believe in therapy as a way to heal, starting with a caring relationship. Accidents, health issues, disease, child abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, or neglect), family problems, grief and loss, etc. can be traumatic. Problems add up and cause complex layers of stress and challenge over time. People say that I am warm and caring, I listen carefully, am patient, sensitive, and don't give up. I pay special attention to making the space safe for you.

I work with adolescents and adults who have identified something in their lives that is causing distress or interfering with their goals. These may be uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, or stressful life circumstances both past or present. Or, they may have a more general discomfort, a sense that something just isn’t “right” and feeling “stuck.” Major life transitions, relationship changes, and illness may be catalysts for psychological distress. Regardless, there is usually a desire to understand themselves better, make meaning of their experiences, and to change grow.

Making the choice to seek support and guidance is very powerful as it means that you are looking to create a shift within yourself, and what you are currently doing is no longer working for you. When we experience life's challenges and transitions, it is so common for us to feel overwhelmed, confused, and very much stuck in the negative cycle of our circumstances. What I aim to do is work collaboratively with you to create forward movement in your life, and ultimately to create multiple opportunities out of challenge.

Hello, it must be challenging to sort through so many profiles trying to find the therapist that is right for you. Research shows that therapy is most effective with a strong client-therapist rapport. I invite you to reach out and give me a call to see if I can assist you in reaching your goals. Though a free 15 minute consultation we can get an idea if you and I are a good fit for therapy. If not, our talk can help me to guide you to an appropriate referral.
