My approach to therapy is based on empowerment and supporting people in a way that allows them to be the best versions of themselves. I tend to lean towards a more accessible, easy-going approach when helping clients work towards goals important to their journey. I find that bringing humor to the session lends to a more comfortable therapeutic environment. While identifying goals can often be challenging, my aim is to help clients identify strengths and learn the skills needed to make positive changes in their lives.

Sometimes it is hard to ask for help. During our lives, we all reach the point where the stress becomes too much. One way to address that is by finding a supportive person to help. I aim to be that supportive person for you. I have been working with children ranging from 7-17, parents, adults, and families since 2007. I have taken time to raise my own children. I recognize the stress of balancing family, work, and personal lives. It is my goal to help you develop your strengths and coping skills to navigate life when it feels like too much. I have experience in helping families navigate difficult parent/child interactions.

Selecting a Therapist to partner in your journey of self discovery and change is an important decision. I have close to 30 years of experience treating adolescents and adults with a wide range of issues. My experience has taught me that people have a great deal of internal wisdom, but sometimes need assistance in accessing and utilizing that information.

Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad, frustrated and uncertain are common human experiences that can leave you disconnected from your best self. I help my clients bridge the gap between where they ARE and where they WANT TO BE by understanding their priorities through a collaborative identification of barriers, fears and hopes. We then design a treatment plan to develop insight about how internal thoughts and belief systems have evolved from unique life experiences and how they influence current interactions and behaviors. Effective strategies to cope with limitations are built upon a foundation of self-awareness.
