I have a special interest in working with couples and women, as well as in helping parents navigate the transition to parenthood, whether that be supporting the couple or dealing with postpartum maternal issues.
I am a certified Restoration Therapist, which guides my approach in working with clients of all ages and issues. Restoration Therapy is all about helping people escape the cycle of conflict that can easily turn them into their worst selves when painful feelings arise. Restoration therapists will help you map your pain cycle and map a way out, so you can regulate those difficult emotions and stay on track. In working with me, you can expect to identify longstanding patterns of interaction that may hinder current relationships and begin to reshape those patterns into a more healthy and whole self.

**Currently has a waitlist** Asking for help can be a hard and scary thing to do. It takes courage to admit that you’re struggling. To me, therapy should be a safe space where you can be open, honest, and vulnerable without feeling ashamed, embarrassed, or judged. Some of my areas of interest and training include treating depression and other mood disorders, generalized anxiety, trauma/PTSD, substance abuse, domestic violence, and interpersonal challenges. I work primarily with adults and have a particular passion for working with women struggling with identity, self-esteem, relationship, & postpartum issues.

With women, work is focused on resolving the issues they are currently struggling with.
From time to time we all experience life difficulties and could benefit from assistance from someone who can be objective, compassionate and nonjudgmental regarding whatever circumstance we are dealing with. The circumstances might be something in the past or present, but the struggle is still there. Whatever the circumstances are that cause you to consider therapy, I offer support, confidentiality and a caring ear. My goal is to assist you in taking an honest look at what you are experiencing, feeling and thinking. Then together, with a little creativity on both our parts, find a way to make things better.

I specialize in working with women confronting postpartum depression and anxiety and women struggling to find balance in their roles as mothers, wives, professionals, and individuals.
I am not able to take new clients at this time. Seeing a counselor doesn't mean you are "crazy" or weak. We all have times in our lives when we feel stuck and need help in getting ourselves or our family out of the patterns that aren't working for us. I strive to provide a personal, comfortable experience for my clients where they can learn to utilize their own strengths to develop the life and relationships they want. I hope to help people gain a better understanding of how their thoughts and experiences are influencing their emotions and provide practical feedback to guide you towards the life you want.
