I have specialized training for working with active duty military, veterans, and their families as well as individuals who have experienced childhood and sexual abuse .
Sometimes life can become pretty overwhelming. Everyone at some point needs a helping hand in making sense of stressful events, finding ways to cope, and taking steps toward becoming the person he or she wants to be. When working with my clients, my goal is to be that helping hand. I tailor my approach to clients' strengths and needs, with the focus of assisting individuals in reaching their goals and becoming the best versions of themselves. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, life changes, grief, emotion regulation, or stress management.

Life is complicated and difficult. I believe that sooner or later we all are confronted with some aspect of living that is just too overwhelming to handle alone. Someone we love dies, or gets sick, money gets tight, relationships are strained, children have problems, and any number of symptoms start to emerge. At these times, we may be prone to despair and long for a deeper sense of satisfaction and desire more meaning for our lives. It is my hope that you will be courageous and ask for help now.

My areas of specialty are all forms of trauma (physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse , neglect, deaths in the family, and injuries etc.
You deserve to live a life that you love. There are many people who see therapy as something intrusive, not necessary or believing that they will be judged. As a therapist, I believe that the connection built between the patient and therapist is the foundation that can lead you to the life that you want to live. My only goal as a therapist is to help you achieve your goals and to see you become happier with the life you are currently living. Yes, sometimes therapy can bring up painful emotions, memories or events, but this pain can lead to growth and a better life.

Do you feel off-balance in your life, work or relationships? You've spent the last however-many-years trying to keep it all together, but it can be exhausting and you don’t feel you can do that anymore. As far as anyone can see, you have a great life. You’re accomplished, driven, and dependable. But inside, you never feel good enough and the voice inside your head quickly reminds you of all the ways you fall short. You're tired of always giving so much to others while you continue to place last on your list. No longer. Now is the time for change.

"Holler if you hear me." Rap legend, Tupac Shakur, pled for the world to signal back to him that his thoughts, feelings and experiences were being heard. To verify that he was not crazy or out of control. So many of us have been silenced, taught to bury our truths and to hide from ourselves. Such practices develop mental, emotional and physical illnesses that then impact generations to come. People need a safe place to release, to connect and to explore the depths of which they were taught not to venture. No matter the age or magnitude of issues, it is vital for you to speak your mind and for empathy to be returned.
