About

Are you overcome with grief? Do you feel overwhelmed by life and the world around you? Do you feel anxious or depressed? Do your interactions with family members and significant others cause you distress? Do you feel isolated because there is no one to speak to? Let me help you navigate those feelings and find ways to take affirmative steps toward improving the quality of your life. I am an empathetic and engaged therapist. I pride myself on creating a safe, compassionate, and nonjudgmental environment where I promise that you will be heard.
With years of experience as a member of a cardiovascular team and an oncology team I am very familiar with supporting individuals of all ages as well as families dealing with issues related to chronic/terminal illnesses, grief, and loss. I have also been trained in family conflict resolution—counseling couples, parents, children, and families as a unit.
So whether you are facing a personal obstacle or in the midst of experiencing relationship tension, let’s work together to help you live your best life.
