Many of us are not aware of how our upbringing and family dynamics are impacting our present life. We inherit more than just the physical appearance from our parents and family members. We inherit our generation's dysfunctional boundaries, poor communication skills, traumas, parenting style, and much more. We are affected not only by the way we think and respond, but by our environment and current family dynamics. Learning how to set healthy boundaries and functional communication skills can be very challenging if done without professional help. Life-stages come with its challenges but they also come with opportunity for growth.
Are you overwhelmed with trying to keep up with school, work, or the expectations of your family? Do you put everyone else’s needs and happiness before your own?

Imagine a future where you are happy, relaxed, and confident. Where you have time for your work, family, friends, and fun. Imagine waking up with energy and looking forward to your day.
My experience includes working with clients regarding most mental health issues but I am most passionate about healthy relationships!

Many people struggle with issues in their lives and can benefit from meeting with a trained professional. I help my clients identify problems and work toward a solution. Most problems can be solved with proper help and early treatment, which keeps small problems from becoming large ones that then seem unsolvable. I believe that each individual is unique, regardless if the issues are the same they are still different. Because of this belief, I provide an eclectic approach to therapy matching each individual needs with a specific therapuetic approach. If applicable and the client is interested hypno-therapy is available.
Now Accepting New Clients. Often in life, we go through challenges and losses which are overwhelming and wear us down.

Having someone you trust who will listen objectively and guide you is very important in the healing process. I provide the practical feedback, support, and tools needed to create personal growth and lasting change. You'll find I am very easy to talk to, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable.

Let’s do real talk. Life can be hard! Understanding what children are experiencing can be difficult. Best of intentions by parents are often misunderstood. When you are a child, talking to your parents is seemingly impossible sometimes. Kids have big emotions they cannot understand or describe, and they think no one will get. Academic stressors, development, parent and peer relationships and significant or traumatic life events can cause a child or teenager to react in various ways. Some kids need a safe space to learn how to identify, express and cope with their feelings. Processing feelings helps to reduce stress and pressures.
