Therapy is the best investment you can make for your relationships with yourself, your family and loved ones, and your money. My experience and training as a therapist deeply and positively impacts my work as a financial planner and vice versa. There are many benefits in the pairing of therapy and financial planning that help people transform their lives to experience more freedom, security, connection, gratitude, success, and joy. In addition to financial therapy and life coaching, I provide individual, couples, and family therapy.

I am accepting new clients! Do you feel overwhelmed by the demands of life? Do you struggle with fatigue, exhaustion, and often feel irritated? Maybe life has felt like an unending wave of stress and you long to come up for air. You long for things to calm down, so you can get back on top of it. Therapy with me will be a place to slow down, take a moment, and share your story with someone who cares. I strive to understand the context of your struggles first, so that we can unravel the deeper meaning of what’s going on. I can help you untangle what it is that YOU want and stand up to the outside pressures.
Congratulations on taking the first courageous step towards improving things in your life. I have been providing psychotherapy services to people for over two decades as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. In that time, I have learned that each person is unique; with their own combination of strengths, struggles and histories. We start with getting to know each other and then focus on what you want to change/improve. We work together to set goals and then to achieve those goals. I view this process as a collaborative process.

Change is possible for everyone, regardless of your past doings and experiences. Within YOU lies the strength that can help you live your best life. As a therapist, I’ve helped many people who felt hopeless or stuck work through their struggles and access that inner strength. You have what it takes! Whether its anxiety, trauma, depression, anger, or life transitions, I’m confident that we can work one-on-one or in a group setting (family and friends can attend depending on the need).
Healing is possible and my experience personally, and as a therapist, helps me know you can feel and create a life you enjoy. It takes courage to try therapy and we will work together to help you discover the strengths and resilience you have within yourself. You may have felt lost from your sense of self and purpose, and gone through painful transitions like loss or trauma. I am passionate about supporting adults, older adults, couples and families of all backgrounds who feel lost and hurting to find their inner strength and purpose.
Throughout life, we face life changes, identity issues, personal crises, losses, and possible disconnection with ourselves and with others. When we begin to explore these changes in a safe and supportive space, we may to authentically express our needs and desires, while also creating and maintaining healthy boundaries for ourselves. Creating a life of greater joy and abundance is achieved through honest and open communication, reflection, and a deeper relationship with ourselves and with others.
**Not accepting new clients** So much is uncertain right now in life - we're waiting in a limbo that feels endless. It's hard to know what to do with all the emotions swirling around in our brains. With everything going on in our lives, and the world right now, it's even more important to develop coping skills and have an appropriate outlet to process experiences and "empty out" our heads, sort through the jumble of thoughts, and make sense of it all. We tend to view our troubling thoughts as embarrassing and scary, and talking through them makes them much more manageable.
