Life presents us with challenges and opportunities that sometimes require consultation. Often, change and healing are facilitated by assistance from caring others. I have repeatedly witnessed the resiliency of the human spirit. I am eager to meet with clients motivated for change and curious about the possibility of having more satisfying lives. I believe that psychotherapy requires trust and a working relationship. I am a compassionate listener and tailor my approach to best match the uniqueness of each client. I approach problems from a strengths-based, holistic perspective that considers a client's relevant biological, developmental, social, and cultural factors.

I am a licensed therapist with over 23 years of experience helping others to navigate life's journey. I offer a judgment free environment to overcome life's challenges and provide a safe haven for self-discovery. Through this process my clients have recognized their ability to heal and gain a greater insight into self-empowerment. I specialize in overcoming trauma, relationships, anxiety, depression, addiction (alcohol & drugs) and academic/career issues with individuals and families. I have found that how we perceive ourselves is our reality; however, together, we can expand that perspective to see the bigger picture.

I consider it a privilege to support people working toward positive change. I am sensitive to the fact that many people are not too eager or comfortable with opening up to a stranger about their personal history. As a therapist, it is my goal to provide a safe and welcoming space where you will feel heard, respected and supported. My therapy style is warm, relaxed and caring and I practice from an integrated treatment approach, paced and tailored to fit the goals and readiness of each individual.

You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry.

Most of us act with the best of intentions and don’t always get the results we were expecting. As a counselor, my role is not to tell a client what to do, but rather to help clients examine what their goals are, different ways goals can be achieved, and to provide supportive and honest feedback through a therapeutic relationship. I have lived in and around very diverse communities throughout my life, and I take pride in understanding and honoring everyone’s unique culture and beliefs.

Hi, thanks for reaching out. I know this is hard because you’re not usually a reacher outer. You're existing in spaces with people all around you but you feel alone. You’re disconnected from your own body, your desires, your partner, and your community. You feel frazzled and fragmented and flat-out exhausted. You also know that there is a little spark somewhere inside telling you there is another way but you have no idea how to get there. If you had a partner in your personal work, a listener that really hears you, a therapist that sees you, you could get beyond the patterns and blocks that have kept you stuck and disconnected.

I value every encounter with an individual. I am grateful to be in a field, as a Therapist, where I can enjoy divine connections daily - thanks to the incredible courage of people. Specifically, thanks to a “yes” to the journey of growth, healing, and one's readiness to get "unstuck." Although I believe that the therapy office is a place where much of an individual’s healing and recovery from life challenges takes place, I also understand that the real tests happen outside of those four walls. I want to help you to prepare for those tests, cope, build healthy relationships, and affirm yourself in the positive.

Over the past fifteen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Over the past year I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

There is no one more put together than a person in recovery. Living in recovery is working a program of mental health, staying clean and sober, and living one day at a time. With that being said, each person’s specific program looks different, with the common factor of living a balanced life of being grateful, mindful, spiritual, and finding a sense of community among other recovering individuals. My specialty areas are addictions, mental health, trauma, codependency issues, and how these affect you and those who love you.
