LGBTQ-plus welcome! Let's face it, it's been a rough couple of years. So many of us are feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, irritable, or even depressed and not sure why. Suddenly, we have noticed those bottles of wine going faster, our tempers growing shorter, and the stress piling up. Everyone needs something from you, but you've given so much already and aren't sure where to refill yourself. Or/and perhaps you are a member of a marginalized community and facing additional stresses and obstacles in our society. Maybe it's time to talk to someone to help process all of these feelings and achieve some peace for yourself.
Hi! A misconception I have realized in therapy is that a client will look for their therapist to "tell them what to do". I believe that YOU are the expert in your own life and I am more of a co-pilot. Those who have been clients in the past will smile when they hear, "I'm just in the passenger seat holding the map, we will go down any street you want, and we can turn around if that was a wrong turn", or "You're driving this bus!" I know how much courage it takes to make the first step, and I am proud of you!
I provide an environment that is calm, supportive, and empathetic to meet you where you are in your life’s journey. I work with children, teens, and adults through methods such as play therapy techniques, cognitive behavioral, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and person-centered.

My passion is helping others heal and gain insight into the issues that they are experiencing. I practice a person centered approach as I believe that we tend to be our own best experts. I emphasize a collaborative style during session to help you progress towards you goals. Personal growth and healing does not have to be something that is an abstract concept, but rather can be a possibility. It helps to have someone who is unbiased and is present to help you navigate life’s challenges and traumas. I also feel passionate about working with adolescents as they navigate the complexities of the transition from youth to adulthood.
Life can be stressful! It has a way of taking us to places that we would have never planned for ourselves. Trauma, loss, drug or alcohol use, early childhood experiences, recurrent behaviors, career stress and life-cycle changes can all have a deep impact on the emotional health and well-being of children and adults. Individuals, couples, and families can develop unhealthy patterns of relating to others which can then result in conflict, loneliness, chaos, and hopelessness.
Where to begin? This question is so frequently asked and the answer is more simple than most think. The answer is to begin by allowing someone to help. Just allowing someone to provide you a space where you can begin your journey with support and acceptance. At the Center For Healing And Hope, therapy provides an environment of acceptance and understanding in which you and your therapist can work together to address any difficulties or challenges you may be facing.
