I am a licensed clinical social worker who is dedicated to providing my clients with ethical, professional and confidential services. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in determining successful outcomes in treatment. This involves the client feeling safe and trusting of the therapist while he/she explores emotional vulnerabilities and painful thought processes. My hope is that you will experience me as someone who actively listens to you and works with you to develop effective problem-solving strategies. My approach to therapy is respectful, honest, client-centered and strengths based.

Welcome and congratulations on taking the first step so that life may get different for you. The beauty and benefits of re-examining how we can make changes in our lives, continues to fuel my passion for therapeutic dialogue. The integrative nature of my work allows for us to look at family of origin explanations, without blaming, so that you can move toward change.

I believe that a healthy outlook comes from having a good grasp of your ABC's... Accept, Balance, Cope. People often say things like, "I need to let it go," or "I need to forgive ____," etc. But we rarely talk about what it means to do that. Those phrases mean accepting that life is what it is--a balance of both good and bad--and making a choice to focus on the things we CAN change. Then "it" can stop directing our lives--we cope. Whether you need to let go of anger, fear, or sadness, I can help!

I believe relationships have long-lasting healing power. Romantic, parent/child, friendship, or even your relationship with yourself, when these bonds are healthy, they help heal many wounds. But sometimes things get in the way of your goals for your life and relationships – trauma, beliefs that hurt instead of help, new mental health symptoms, or behaviors that aren’t working for you. I come alongside clients and help them learn new ways to understand and cope with these issues. One of my favorite things is helping couples learn to change unhealthy patterns and build the relationship they’ve always dreamed of.

Therapy can be very beneficial for individuals willing to have the courage to be vulnerable and open to change. While most people tend to seek therapy after the fact, when things have gone wrong, I also encourage therapy as a means of maintaining wellness. By being proactive, versus reactive, you may find that you'll experience greater happiness and less stress. If you've done your research then you know there are many options for help, which can make it hard to choose; I standby the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship as key to making this work and encourage you not to give up if you don't feel connected at first.

How on earth are you supposed to choose something as important as a therapist from a two-dimensional blurb on the internet? Because it's impossible to really get a sense of who someone is from a listing, I invite you to reach out via phone, text or email, or you can visit my website & watch a short video of me & get a sense for my energy & style. Change doesn't have to take years of sessions, but it does take reaching out to get effective help, and I'd love the chance to be of assistance. These are some crazy times! COVID19 is scary, & the stress can load up on top of existing life issues, making everything feel so overwhelming.

Let’s face it. Finding a therapist is a daunting task! There are so many variables to consider and it can be hard to know where to even start. In hope of making this process a little easier for you, let me take a few minutes to tell you about myself and how I practice. Life and experience have repeatedly shown me that the therapeutic relationship is instrumental for change and healing. As a result, I work to create an atmosphere in which each person feels safe and understood. Life has a way of wearing us down, and while we do the very best we can to get through, we can’t always do it on our own. My hope is to create an environment in which you feel supported and empowered on your journey. You are the only expert in you, and I am here to support your process of growth and healing, while equipping you with the tools to be successful. The process of therapy is sacred and one I take very seriously, but I also think it is important to have some fun and share a few laughs! Life is hard enough as it is!
