I am a licensed clinical psychologist who offers therapy for children, adults and families through a strength based, holistic approach. There are times when personal crises, loss or relational issues appear to be insurmountable. Although it is not possible to change difficult situations in the past, I can work with you to resolve challenges in your life. I offer skilled guidance and support assisting you to experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Today you are one step closer on a positive path towards growth, empowerment and well-being. I believe that the relationship between the client and therapist is fundamental in successful psychotherapy. As such, I create a safe and trusting professional relationship with my clients, helping them to figure out where they are, where they want to be, and what’s impeding them from change. I believe that through personal exploration, clients come into a place of greater understanding, self-compassion, and ultimately personal growth.

I have worked with a wide range of populations and specialize in substance abuse, anxiety, depression, and trauma work.
Reaching out can be difficult, but you can rest assured your privacy is protected and secure in therapy. Everyone deserves a safe place to unpack life's challenges and hardships with support. Having the right therapist is critical to the process. My style is lovingly honest in order to best serve you. It is my philosophy that therapy can be like going to the gym...if you don't feel it- you probably aren't changing much. It is my job to both support and challenge in areas that will facilitate growth. Often times much of my work is centered around supporting clients on becoming more mindful and breaking old patterns.

You may have been feeling overwhelmed with bouts of sadness. You may become panicky when particular topics are discussed or when driving down that one road. You may become uneasy when that one song comes on your playlist, a movie is featured on your feed or a smell comes by your noise. You notice you act unlike yourself around certain people because they remind you of someone from your past. Each of circumstances take you back to a particular painful moment or a series of events. A wound from emotional, physical, sexual or religious trauma and now you are ready to start leaving it behind.

I have experience treating anxiety, depression, relationship/marital problems, life changes, childhood/generational trauma , and issues related to work/life/family imbalance, domestic violence, anger, and stress.
I’ve witnessed the therapeutic process help many people from all walks of life. When I say “help”, I mean the small changes that make the difference between feeling depressed, tired, lonely, and numb to feeling re-connected to yourself, your purpose, your sense of hope, and the people you love. The changes that lead you from worrying, obsessing, and “freaking out” everyday to every other day or week or month instead (your nervous system needs a break!) and gradually to a place of peace. The emotional, spiritual, and mental changes that will get you through the deep, difficult, and challenging periods of your life.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
