In a time where our world is constantly changing, it can feel hard to keep up and maintain control. I am a firm believer that our mental health has a large impact on how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. Finding someone you trust to discuss how you feel is the first step in regaining control of not only your health, but your happiness, too.
I believe it is important to provide a relaxed and supportive environment for clients to discuss their concerns, with tele-health psychotherapy and evaluations being available online through Thera-link.

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, MS, EdS, BA
As a therapist, I offer a person-centered approach to help you create and facilitate goals that work for you. I strive to create a space of empathy, understanding, and inclusivity to facilitate you in your therapeutic journey. I believe that you are capable of creating the life you want, and I am here to help you deal with the things that prevent you from doing that. My clinical interests include those struggling with depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ issues, disordered eating, personality disorders, identity issues, trauma, and self-esteem, as well as those struggling with interpersonal and relationship issues.
With over 20 years experience as a clinician, I enjoy working with a variety of concerns. I have expertise in the areas of family and marriage, relationships, depression, PTSD, stress management, grief and trauma as well as individual and couple issues. I am a certified Traumatologist and a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. I traveled to New York City to assist families impacted by the 9/11 attacks and have assisted in local and regional tragedies. I am also available for workshops, seminars, and trainings for agencies, organizations and businesses needing employee development.
Is your child having trouble managing behavior in school, struggling with peer relationships, overwhelmed with stress, trying to cope with ADHD? Is your teenager struggling with anxiety or depression, having trouble sleeping, making poor decisions, overwhelmed with school work and life in general? Are you a college student struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, roommate stress or feeling lost about your future? Life is hard. If you are having trouble managing relationships and coping with life, it can leave you feeling alone, isolated and struggling to cope. Please call me for an appointment so we can work together.
I believe that people are resilient as I witness it every day. However, life can be challenging. Whether the challenge is a situational stressor, unexpected event, a transition, life experience, personal history, relationships, or our own internal struggle, these challenges can impact our lives and functioning in unexpected ways that even the most resilient person can have difficulties coping with or processing. Therapy can be helpful in addressing life's difficulties and making our emotional pain transformative. I also believe that for therapy to be helpful, the client's emotional safety and fit between the client and therapist are critical.
One of my favorite quotes is "sometimes, when you are in a dark place, you think you've been buried, but you've actually been planted". Emotional pain can be so overwhelming that we feel unable to get out of the dark places by ourselves. Trying to navigate trauma, anxiety, hopelessness and stressful relationships, can create fear, doubt and shame to take up too much space in our lives. The way to healing and restoring the body, mind and spirit can feel challenging, but you don’t have to do it alone.
We can assess, diagnose, and treat psychological disorders that arise from brain-related conditions such as brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, and many other neurological conditions and we provide psychotherapeutic services. If you are having relationship problems, or you are experiencing physical or neurological symptoms, or you have gone through a traumatic experience, or a career or life transition, and it is causing you stress, anxiety, sadness, anger, or guilt, we can work together to help you improve your mood, your relationship with others and improve your inner peace.
I believe in working with clients from where they are currently and helping them to grow and develop to the full potential that they are seeking. Counseling can be a way to help the individual through seeking understanding and insight into their life and into their various challenges. From greater understanding of self we identify appropriate potential paths toward healing.
Some often say we should stay active to maintain our physical health. I believe therapy is a way of getting active in maintaining positive mental health. We all endure many struggles in our lives and seeking help is the first step to overcome those burdens. I believe that therapy is not a one size fits all approach and believe in providing a warm, comfortable, and nonjudgemental space while developing a strong rapport with each client. In order to make the healing process most rewarding, I believe that displaying empathy and offering solutions are key along with understanding each client’s background, history, thoughts, and values.
Psychoeducational testing can empower learners, parents, teachers and other individuals to make informed decisions by identifying and examining academic, cognitive, behavioral and social/emotional strengths and weaknesses. I have 21 years experience in assessing individuals to identify learning disabilities, ADHD, intellectual disorders and intellectual giftedness and offering research-based recommendations for appropriate instruction and interventions. For high school, college students, and other individuals, I provide assessments to determine the need for accommodations on high stakes tests, in the classroom or in the work place. I also offer ADHD Coaching to adults who are interested in developing better organizational and goal-setting skills.
Life is challenging. At some point, most of us will need assistance navigating the highs and lows. I am a clinical psychologist with over 29 years of experience helping others on their journey to mental wellness. I look forward to helping you!
My passion is rooted in working with youth and adults who may find themselves faced with issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, and trauma. Although my primary way of helping others address these issues is through a cognitive and behavioral approach, I believe integrating techniques catered to the individual is essential for change. Additionally, I believe our mental health is interconnected with our physical and spiritual well-being. Therefore, my focus is to help others align those elements for improved overall health.
