What does it mean to live your best life? To experience serenity? How about adventure? Clarity? Happiness? Do you ever wonder if you were meant to have these experiences, and more? If you can wonder it, if you can imagine it, then you can dream it into being. You may need to learn new skills, develop new tools, identify the false and limiting beliefs that hold you back. Is this possible? Certainly. You just need a dream (a goal), and the right support.
Experience matters. I have over 25 years of experience and a record of success in working with adults. I specialize in working with women who are struggling with anxiety, depression, mood difficulties, challenging circumstances or loss due to a difficult history. I also work in conjunction with 12 step groups. My focus is on thought processes, feelings, actions, stress responses and coping as they relate to your current circumstances and past history. I work to help decrease your anxiety or sadness by processing emotional events, increasing your observational skills and sense of clarity as they pertain to taking healthy action.
*accepting new private insurance* I believe that everyone is unique and deserves a therapeutic approach that will meet their needs. I have worked hard in creating a personalized approach to therapy which allows each person to be the center and go through their journey at their pace. A dedicated play room, allows children to explore and process at their level through play and creativity. With Teenagers, my focus is on their skills & strengths and building them up to help them meet their goals and overcome obstacles. With adult clients I provide a safe place where they can process openly without fear or judgement.
**Currently Accepting New Clients** Mental health is important now more than ever as increased solitude and stress can only heighten symptoms that are already plaguing individuals, couples, and families. It is increasingly important to take the steps necessary to maintain that health through seeking a trusting and empathetic source of support and connection.
Hi there and congratulations on taking the sometimes daunting step towards finding a therapist. I don't know you, but I know that takes courage. My style as a therapist can be described as collaborative, curious, responsive, warm, and above all else, human. Although we are all experiencing this wild ride called life, I know that no two stories or individuals are the same. I am genuinely curious about my clients and what makes them who they are, which leads way to individualized care and true understanding.

This will provide a collaborative therapeutic relationship that is needed to help you with your mental health. I focus on empowering clients to gain an overall well-being through client-centered, strength-based therapy.

My extensive experience of working with clients in a nonjudgmental manner enables me to guide them in discovering and developing their inner strength, awareness, and wisdom. I am passionate about assisting clients and accompanying them on their healing journey. When we work together, the aim is to uncover dysfunctional patterns that are contributing to, or even perpetuating, your challenges. One of the major goals of treatment includes removing both internal and external barriers so that clients can overcome extreme anxiety and foster an environment where they can engage authentically and function from a place of the true self.
Person-centered. Trauma-informed. Solution-focused. These are the words I choose most frequently to describe my work in the therapy room. My greatest desire is to hold space for every individual that enters space with me, and support each of them as they learn to hold space for themselves. It is my goal to create a counter-cultural environment that allows us to work together to support you, your partner and your family to work to create a healthier framework for your relationships with each other and with yourself.
In our busy and sometimes stressful lives, self-care is imperative. Tending to our own mental health may become necessary if the struggle becomes overwhelming to manage alone. Once you've made the decision that therapy is the next step for you, finding the right neutral, compassionate, non-judgmental and empathetic therapist is of the utmost importance. My mission is to build a therapeutic alliance with you using a collaborative approach to reach your goals. The evidence-based approaches and interventions that I use are designed to assist you in further identifying and tapping into the strengths you already possess.

TAKING new clients :) If you are looking for someone who is caring and compassionate and laid back I am who you are looking for. If you are struggling with anxiety and depression or self harm tendencies I would like to work with you to help teach some coping skills and use a empathetic approach to help you to start feeling better about yourself.

You end up feeling alone, feeling a hole in your body that can't or is refusing to be filled, feeling like shit at the end of most days. Sometimes you see a glimmer of hope... yet you doubt it's real.
