Some of the outpatient therapy services that I offer are: family , couples, and individual therapy, case management, and I am specialized in Anger Management.
Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, who understands us without judgement, who is there when we need them... and sometimes we don't have anyone to do that for us. Look no further! Your uniqueness will be cherished and your mind comforted. There is so much stigma behind mental health that I guarantee complete discretion. Your healing is all that matters and what you feel is right for you! Have a problem that needs solving? Are you not sure what you want out of life or what your next career move should be? Have emotional or behavioral questions that need answers? Call me! Let's work on this together! Now offering extended hours

I have many years of experience working on issues related to self-esteem, family conflict, addictions and managing stress and anger.
Many of us have gone through experiences that leave us feeling stuck, unmotivated, or without hope for change. The promise of psychotherapy is that it offers a path that illuminates the conscious and unconscious limiting beliefs we unknowingly come to identify with. It allows us a framework where insight becomes possible and then choice! Once you can recognize your patterns, you can choose a new way of being. In this sense, I believe we are partners working to understand your motivations, fears, and deepest hopes so that you can feel a greater sense of freedom and empowerment in your life and in your future.

Searching for a therapist can be such a vulnerable experience when you don’t know what to expect, so finding that right 'vibe/fit' is incredibly important. You've already taken a huge step in looking for a therapist, so I am giving you a big ‘high-five" for starting your search! I really enjoy working with women who ‘have it all together on the outside (you probably do!) but are emotionally/mentally exhausted on the inside. Many women have very high expectations of themselves as they try to find balance between family /career/personal life. You may often feel anxious, inadequate, unworthy, and guilty for prioritizing your own needs.

I work with adolescent, young adult, and adult clients, as well as family systems, especially those struggling with relationship issues, family or couple conflict, depression, anxiety, anger, behavioral disorders, conflict, substance use, trauma, disorder eating, risky/harmful sexual behaviors, and other unhelpful behaviors.
You’re seeking therapy for a reason. You’ve probably talked to your family , friends, or even co-workers about the things that are plaguing your mind. But if you’re like the rest of us you’re probably holding back. Hesitant to reveal your true self. Fear of being judged, left, or isolated. Therefore, therapy should be driven by the relationship you build with your therapist, and not a theory or a textbook. You take the skills you learn in the therapist-client relationship and apply them into your life and your experiences. What freedom could you accomplish if you did not allow other’s narrative to shape your way?

You miss the relationship that you and your partner used to have. When it felt fun and carefree. Now, it feels like you’re fighting more than you’re enjoying each other. You’re so tired of feeling alone in your emotions. Your partner isn’t getting it. The stress of being adults together is building up. You’re having difficulty navigating how you handle your finances, family issues, division of labor, and fertility or parenting issues. You check your phone to numb out for a minute and all you see are pictures of other people’s perfect relationships, dream families, fancy vacations and clean houses. You can't help but feel jealous.

I welcome people who are struggling with insecurity, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, OCD, fear of rejection, awkwardness, life changes, family /relationship problems, and addiction or family of addiction.
Finding a therapist is difficult, especially when you aren't sure what kind of therapy you even need. I've broken down common therapies on my website (as well as the ones I use) to help anyone better understand the jargon. Feel free to check it out! Why continue to be unhappy when help is an email away? Life is a struggle at the best of times and for a lot of us, this has just been growing more and more. Anxiety, anger, and depression are so common, as well as burnout and stress. And when we finally want to talk about it, well, someone always has it worse! Right?

I live my life as a survivor of multiple types of cancer and immune deficiencies, seeing each day as an opportunity to attend to my health (gym, spiritual practice and healthy nutritional habits) then to share that health with my clients, spouse and family .
"Life is Difficult." - M. Scott Peck My intention as a psychotherapist is to create a safe space for my clients to heal and grow. To accomplish this, I utilize a number of modalities including talk therapy, energy psychology, cognitive behavioral (CBT) and rational emotive therapy. I believe that each client deserves a relationship with their therapist that is safe, authentic and genuinely unique to their situation(s) which fosters growth and challenges ineffective beliefs. To that end, we work as a team or partnership!

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
