I enjoy working with all age groups across the lifespan on a variety of issues and life challenges, but my specialty is working with adolescents, young adults, and adult woman. Much of my career has been spent working with at-risk youth, as well as leading skills training groups for adolescents and adults. As a working, professional, mother of four, I also truly identify with and enjoy helping women create a sense of balance between work and family.

This allows us to offer the male and female perspective, as well as a couples viewpoint.
I have 12 years experience working with mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have been trained in EMDR which is a short-term therapy for trauma. I focus on Cognitive Therapy as the foundation of how we think, feel and act. Sometimes, we have to change our behavior and to learn to practice healthy skills. I have done a lot of trauma work and understand the connection between early trauma and behaviors the can be troubling in adult life. I also enjoy working with groups and recognize the community of shared experience that we can benefit from.

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”-Rumi. You matter. What you think and feel matters. How you are treated matters. What you have been through matters. Perhaps you are a new mom, feeling overwhelmed and scared to admit things aren’t picture perfect. Perhaps you’re going though a hard transition, and feeling alone, lost, or confused. Maybe you’re no longer sure a relationship, or a job, is right for you, and are tired of not feeling seen or heard, valued or understood. Maybe constant worrying, or a hurtful past, is keeping you from living your life the way you want-with laughter, love, and hope.

I am passionate about coming alongside women who've had bad things happen to them.
Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

My clients are children from infancy through adolescence -- and their parents and caregivers -- who want to improve their relationships and the ways they function in this difficult world. I help them understand each other, communicate, process their emotions, deal with life’s problems, and heal from past wounds, especially from trauma. Trauma can affect children’s behaviors and emotions in ways that may be surprising. They may seem withdrawn or angry or highly emotional or defiant -- and sometimes all of these in one day! Children who have not been traumatized may also run this gamut, leaving parents confused.
