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.

I enjoy positive psychology and prefer to focus on solutions, strengths, and assets. I feel it is important to view each person from their unique cultural experience with a nonjudgmental stance. I believe in the biopsychosocial model and understand health and functioning as being systemic in nature.

Fighting constantly in your relationship, but never solving anything? Or giving up on fighting because 'what's the point?' Wondering how to recover after an affair? 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. You can expect lots of support, empathy, validation, and a safe place to learn how to move forward.

You may be looking for help to decrease drinking or not playing as many video games. Perhaps you and your partner have hit a rough patch and need some clarity and understanding. Maybe you realize you are carrying hurts from your past that keep showing up in your present relationships. Someone may be saying, "you should see a counselor." If any of this sounds familiar, I look forward to meeting you! I want you to feel less anxiety and more peace and to feel empowered by proactivity rather than punished by reactivity.

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

Hi- You have probably either chanced across, or deliberately come to my website because of a recommendation or your personal interest in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I am passionate about EMDR as an approach to healing not only recent trauma, but also in approaching experiences buried deep in the past. Therapy, and EMDR specifically, helps liberate us from learned emotional responses. Liberation from ingrained patterns makes us response able. Being able to respond to our circumstances is empowering. With this comes increased self compassion and understanding. Therapy truly is a blessing!

Life is unpredictable. Everyone struggles at some point in life. Sometimes the accompanying suffering tears at the very fabric of our understanding of ourselves and how we fit in the world. Life no longer makes sense. Life is not the way you thought it would be or should be. Unbidden desires, anxieties or depression come in to interfere with your ability to live the life you want. Others in your life behave in ways that disrupt your peace of mind and ability to live a meaningful life. Issues you thought you had dealt with long ago resurface in the present.
