"As I think about how change occurs for a person, I am struck by the recognition that life is full of opportunities for change, for individual growth. Sometimes these opportunities are not clear to the person because the trauma, personal or relational difficulty, fear, depression, or anxiety being experienced can be so overwhelming that one's ability to take action is clouded. In my work, I have become very mindful of the resiliency of the human spirit. I have witnessed this resiliency in times of trauma, pain, and loss. My goal is to provide you with a safe space to address your concerns."

"I specialize in supporting clients through life transitions and grief & loss - I find these times create the most fertile soil for people to grow. Many of the issues that bring people to therapy are natural responses to the challenges we face as human beings. Sometimes, feeling sad, or angry, or frustrated makes perfect sense in the context of our lives - and yet, we do not want to remain in those states forever. Through the process of therapy, we bring curiosity and compassion to our inner experience - and in the safety of a non-judgmental space, we explore options for growth."

"As a Registered Play Therapist, I specialize in children ages 4-12 years. I engage them with both therapeutic play, creative arts interventions and therapeutic games. When children and young adolescents come to therapy they need to feel safe and enjoy the experience while learning skills to improve how they feel. When families come to therapy, they look for guidance from an experienced therapist who will join with their family and help them navigate through their family issues. Depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, divorce, adoption and life adjustments are all issues that lead many children and families to seek specialized treatment."

"Ambivalence is what we experience when having mixed feelings about something, or someone. Does this describe you? If so, you are in good company. Ambivalence is the reason most people enter into therapy. Many feel torn when it comes to making change, and for good reason. It's hard letting go of familiar relationships or ways of coping- no matter how destructive. If you're yearning to break free of old, harmful ways, but afraid to embrace the uncertainty of change, you do not have to go it alone."
