I'm a non-traditional therapist in the sense that I view therapy as a form of healing akin to healing practices present in ancient traditions, prior to the existence of formal therapy. I'm trained as both a therapist as well as a clairvoyant and energy worker. I see my role, as a healer, to connect you with your heart.

I am ready to partner with you as we commit to your growth as a person and professional. It takes great courage to sit with another person and share what you have kept dormant. Often times this includes a secret carefully stowed, aspirations and dreams waiting to ignite, and your deepest desires for connection, belonging, and purpose. I work hard at earning your trust, devote the time and resources to grow as a clinician, have a team of mentors and consultants, and built the foundation of my skills in the most challenging/rewarding training environments. My success is only possible when current/previous clients are soaring!

I approach therapy based upon the three core values: Curiosity, Compassion, and Community. I want to be curious about each client or couple that walks through my door. I want to know their unique problem and share some of my knowledge and skills to assist in meeting their goals. I want to be compassionate to each individual and explore what fosters their own sense of compassion. I also want to understand a person's community. Isolation is a painful state of being and I want to find how clients connect to others and build an environment of safety.

Are you Anxious, Depressed? Are you a First Responder? You may be fed up with your inability to share your day with loved ones in an effort to shield them. Are you wanting to change the way you deal with stress (dark humor, isolation, over eating etc.) and/or are you feeling irritable, overwhelmed, confused and questioning “why now”? You might not even remember a time you didn’t feel like this. Either way, one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. Most of all, you’re ready to change your outlook on life which will include hope.

Ten years after completing my graduate degree in counseling, I found my self in a high-stress executive career and recovering from several major life-altering events, including the death of a parent, an unexpected surgery, my daughter's tragic accident, and a broken marriage. I was at a crossroad trying to hold it all together through anxiety and panic attacks. I asked myself, whose life am I living? How can I fix this? I knew I needed to heal and build a life that I truly wanted, a life where I did not feel like I was drowning but I didn't know where to start.

The most important aspect to therapy in my eyes is the relationship that I am able to build with a client. It is not possible for growth to happen when there isn’t a trusting and safe relationship between both client and therapist. When making an appointment with myself, I want clients to know that I am wanting to meet them where they are exactly and only take steps that a client feels empowered to take through their own decision making. It is a scary and vulnerable place to be in when making your first therapy appointment, and I want to alleviate as much stress about the appointment itself when you come into my office or online.

Greetings and thank you so much for considering me as your mental health practitioner! It can be hard to be brave in our world, and that includes seeking help from others. I like to look at counseling sessions as a gift of time for yourself. Our time together would be about you and your needs, and figuring out ways to heal or get there. I look forward to creating a trust-filled, healthy relationship to assist you on yourself. At times, therapy sessions may just be a backboard for you to comfortably release stress or inner thoughts. My approach in therapy strives to be strength-based, empowering, grounding and calming.

Your heart drops into your stomach and you are at a loss for words. Maybe you feel numb. Maybe you can't stop crying. No matter what your reaction is, your life as you know it has changed in one instance. You've been diagnosed with a terminal or chronic illness. A flood of questions comes to your mind: is this the beginning of the end, how will this effect my career, how do I tell my family? I have dedicated my life to guiding people through the emotional difficulties related to managing conditions such as: mild cognitive impairment, dementia, TBI, stroke, cancer, transplant, and pregnancy/fertility concerns.
