I have over thirty years of experience helping women and men of all ages navigate life and improve relationships.
What can you do when you no longer feel at home in yourself, in your daily living, in your relationships, in your life? You might feel anxious, sad, or angry too much of the time. It can be tempting to think that you should be able to handle things on your own and to want to hide what you are going through. Life shouldn’t be this difficult. Sometimes it’s the big things that throw us off balance – past and present hurts, losses, family conflict, major changes. Other times it is the accumulation of little things and we might not even know why we are overwhelmed or struggling.

Working with women with various concerns including relationship issues, grief and loss, self worth, assertiveness, and anxiety is a passion of mine.
Your path to feeling your best starts here! I work with you in order to establish realistic, attainable goals that will help you feel better and manage your symptoms. As a woman’s focused practice, I specialize in anxiety, OCD and pre and post natal mood disorders. Using CBT and ERP has been proven to be the most beneficial treatment for these conditions. I also hold certifications in domestic violence and sexual assault crisis intervention. Additionally, I believe the mind and body are truly connected and often work with clients to gain insight into potentially unhealthy lifestyle patterns.

I help the peacekeeping, people-pleasing women of the world to stop walking on eggshells and learn what life is like when you can focus on the people and things that fill your cup instead of draining it dry.
Family visits make you sweat buckets. At home with your partner and kids, you can be yourself, but with extended family, you paste on a fake smile to deal with the underhanded verbal barbs you know are coming. You feel guilty as hell subjecting your partner and kids to this, but it's FAMILY. The thought of losing family connections makes you sick, but so does the idea of playing peacemaker and juggling everyone's baggage just so you can eat some mashed potatoes and turkey in peace. Some part of you knows it doesn't have to be this way though. You know you need to stop giving such a damn, because you're running out of damns to give.
