We rarely can overcome all of life's challenges on our own, yet reaching out to others for help is often difficult. I recognize this fact as I seek to work collaboratively in helping you bring about the changes you want to see in your life. Therapy can be of enormous value in decreasing distress, more effectively managing emotions, better understanding the causes of your unhappiness, cultivating closer and more fulfilling relationships, overcoming patterns that repeatedly get in your way, and improving your ability to build a happier and more meaningful life.

As the parent of a struggling child or teen, you may wonder what you can do to help them feel better. I’m here to provide you and your family the support and guidance that will help you gain a deeper understanding of your child, and feel more connected to them. I am passionate and experienced in helping children, teenagers, and their families overcome life's challenges. I have seen many children and teens struggle to express or articulate their emotions. That’s what I am here for. I find playful ways to help children express their inner world while guiding parents to also be curious to what is under their behavior.

I specialize in working with professionals who are experiencing distressing life events and may be struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or relationship issues. Often clients come to me feeling lost or not knowing where to begin. I welcome clients as they are; offering genuine warmth and a judgment-free space to help them gain clarity and direction. With compassion and respect for my clients' stories, together we begin understanding emotions, restructuring unhelpful thinking patterns, identifying solutions, and establishing more positive lifestyle habits. Often one small change can set a series of bigger changes in motion.

As a therapist, I support clients in finding clarity, understanding themselves more deeply, and taking steps towards creating the kind of life they want to experience. My clients feel lost or overwhelmed and want something to change, but may not know where to start. Together, we work to understand how unprocessed emotions and past experiences are getting in the way of their wellbeing in the form of anxious thoughts, unhelpful relationship patterns, or negative self-talk. My clients want to build tools to become more self-aware, cope with challenges, and feel more satisfied in their personal relationships.

It's not easy to make a decision about needing some clarity and support. No one received a playbook on life and often times what used to work to feel good stopped. We can pause, and examine feeling overwhelmed stressed or stagnant.You may be struggling with perfectionism, work, family, relationships or a general sense of malaise or anxiety. Even highly accountable professionals face these issues. Education and success offer no immunity to the everyday issues of life. Most of us look good on the outside.

I began my career working at a substance abuse treatment facility and have since expanded my practice and expertise. I enjoy working with individuals at all phases of the recovery process, from early treatment through long-term maintenance sobriety. I especially enjoy working with people on stage two recovery issues, such as learning how to integrate 12 step principles into their relationships with others and everyday life. Many of my clients are people in recovery who have dual-diagnosis issues who need additional help beyond the twelve steps or who seek to deepen their understanding of themselves.

I believe therapy fosters greater self-awareness and growth, allowing clients to more effectively manage the stress and anxiety that various transitions and life changes bring. Coming from a background in musical theatre and being a career changer myself, I understand the anxiety that can come from these types of transitions. Whether that be a new relationship, a break up, making a career change, adjusting to being a new parent, or learning to set boundaries, I recognize the support needed to cope during such unknown times.

Many of us are not taught to prioritize mental health and end up unsure of what to do when faced with difficult feelings. Therapy does not need to be scary or intimidating. My style is warm and deeply collaborative. Together, we will set goals, continually make sure we're moving in the right direction, and maybe even have a laugh or two along the way. I am a lifelong learner. In therapy, I draw upon the latest neurobiology research to help you understand how what's going on in your brain and nervous system can affect your mood and behavior.

Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to knowing yourself. Seeking therapy is a brave and honorable act. Healing and growth come from inviting ourselves to listen to our mind and body so we are able to approach life with self awareness and acceptance. By creating a safe space where one can feel heard, understood and accepted, I use humor and warmth to help clients gain insight, self awareness and finding resiliency in life's challenges.
