My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

I believe almost all problems are solvable. If you decide to see me for therapy, the first thing I'll probably ask is, "What's going on? Why have you come?" Perhaps you're having difficulty with a relationship or your struggling with a child or your weight. You may be trying to decide if you want to continue in a relationship or look for another job. Or you've noticed that you're drinking too much or getting too angry or obsessing. Maybe you're feeling anxious, depressed or lonely, and despite your best efforts, you can't seem to shake these feelings.

Since it is our unconscious, spirit part that we are seeking to heal, we must access this part through a variety of right-brain techniques that communicate with the unconscious. The goal of this therapy is to get the defense system out of the way so that we begin to operate out of our true sense of self, begin to create boundaries, make choices truly reflective of our own wants and needs. We then find that we no longer need to rely upon the destructive coping techniques previously used to protect us from the awareness that we are not integrated.

Do you struggle with balance? No, not the standing on one foot while juggling type of balance, but the type that encompasses finding the “gray area”. “Either I’m successful, or I’m a failure”, “Either I’m good, or I’m bad”, “Either I’m perfect, or I’m worthless”. Sound familiar? Whether it includes food/body image/exercise, parenting, work, or social life, I promise balance exists, you just might need a little help finding it. This is where I can help.

You feel like you're barely hanging in there. Like you've lost your way, or maybe even yourself. You just can't seem to get back on solid footing-emotionally OR mentally. You’ve tried your usual tips and tricks to feel better, but they’ve barely moved the needle. Your brain feels like it's not your friend and it's tough to find happiness in the things that usually bring you joy. Your confidence has been knocked down a few pegs. You either feel keyed up with constant worry or knocked flat, laying on the couch or your bed without the energy to do anything. And now you've decided: it's time for a change.

There's this lingering sense of negativity, self-doubt, and not being good enough. Stress is accumulating and the demands you're facing are outweighing your resources. Your drive to reach goals, connect with others, and enjoy life is declining. You notice that same cycle of perfectionism, anxiety, and shame repeating itself, causing you to feel trapped, overwhelmed, and powerless. It's not just affecting your mind. It's also taking a toll on your body and your relationships. Avoid the burnout. Make a choice to make a change.

Do you think it’s too late to accomplish something in life? Do things you once loved no longer bring you happiness or peace? Feeling out of touch, no longer connecting well with those you love? Is life not what you thought it would be like at this moment in time? The reality is, life is sometimes hard & uncomfortable; it’s meant to be that way. However, sometimes the uncomfortable nature & hardness of life can be too much to bear on your own. If this is where you are, therapy may help.

I regularly work with adolescents who are struggling with the following: Inflexible-Explosive Behavior, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Depression, Anxiety and those on the Autism Spectrum/Asperger's Syndrome.
