I enjoy working with clients who are experiencing grief, anxiety, depression, and/or trauma. It’s amazing to watch these clients heal the emotional injuries that cause them pain, remove the obstacles that are holding them back, and learn to walk with freedom, self-compassion, and excitement on their personal life journey. In our work together, we will often focus on things like maintaining presence and a mindful approach to daily living, creating goals for the future, building coping skills, identifying patterns contributing to stagnation, increasing self-awareness, exploring the past, and increasing emotional awareness.

I believe all people desire peace of mind and contentment. I have helped people with emotional struggles for over 25 years, empowering them to attain greater acceptance and compassion for oneself as well as the people in their life and family. I take a mindful approach to therapy which encourages peace of mind and an appreciation for one's own uniqueness and strength. By listening to a patient's life story from a compassionate, non-judgmental stance, I have witnessed the development of strength, confidence, and courage necessary to gracefully weather the storms that are an inevitable part of life.

I see each person as having unique needs, dreams, strengths and challenges, and I know that working collaboratively with a client requires that I first understand and honor who that individual is. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, and it is often a daunting task to find a therapist who is the right fit.

Therapy isn't just for people with "issues." Therapy is for people. Period. Therapy is a mirror that can help you see who you truly are, who you've been all along, and who you want to become. It's also a place to experience unconditional acceptance, safety and non-judgement. Therapy is a map, a flashlight, or a navigation system that can help you find your way. Therapy rocks! I'm glad you're here, and I hope that I get the chance to help you or your child flip on that flashlight, hold up that mirror and enjoy this one wild and wonderful life we have.
