Looking for a brighter future? Do you feel a desperate desire to heal? Are you seeking understandable steps that lead to lasting, life changing results? Would you like to share an authentic connection with a caring provider who is passionate about your unique journey and overall wellbeing? Connection is why we're here. It's what gives meaning and purpose to our lives. Many different experiences leave us feeling disconnected. Often our own fear of disconnection can drive unhealthy, self-destructive behavior. We need a safe place and skilled assistance to transform our lives from the inside out. Let's begin! If not now, then when?

Do you feel isolated, confused and purposeless, or question who you are? What about anxious or like you’re not enough? Do you look in the mirror and wonder what it would be like if you loved yourself? There’s probably also areas of life where you wish things were in alignment, but they’re not. Life is messy, period. It’s confusing, overwhelming, and often filled with unexpected twists and turns. My goals are to help you develop your awareness and acceptance of self; to feel heard, seen, and supported; and to gain skills and confidence. We can’t change life, but we can learn to trust ourselves when navigating the beautiful mess.

If you feel like you're lacking purpose, desire healthier relationships, want a great relationship with food, or lack positive coping for success in life, then you're in the right place. You might write yourself off as lazy or beat yourself up for not having it all together. What I've come to find is that people like you DO have it together, but seeing that you're enough includes chipping away at the thick wall of protection you've built. This is what I love, and what I'm good at. Together, we can help you to feel happier and healthier in every aspect of life, as well as full of the self-love that you so badly deserve. We got this.

You're absolutely in the right place. You probably want to mend your relationship, gain a sense of peace and clarity for moving forward, or reconnect and figure this out together. Relationships can make us both elated and devastated. I help partners identify the core problems and rebuild from there in such a way that each person feels understood, heard, and validated.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.
