Clients frequently present with anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss , relationship issues, parenting concerns, and career/life transitions.
I believe everyone can benefit from counseling because we all have various times in our life when we need someone to listen, support and validate our feelings. Often we can be so close to an issue or concern, and another perspective opens a new window to our world. As a clinician, I work to create a warm, supportive, safe space for my clients to talk, reflect and process their emotions. I understand it takes courage to seek counseling and takes time to build trust.

I offer comfort, counsel and clarity to individuals and families facing medical illness, grief , loss and bereavement , and/or life transitions. Companioning folks on these journeys allows me to help them lessen their sense of isolation, to help identify and utilize their strengths, and to manage difficult emotions. Frequently clients are overwhelmed and need help sorting through stressful feelings and situations. Once that is accomplished, much progress is made. In life transitions, identifying and touching the emotions and then re-establishing a life-plan are often the primary goals, crafted to the client's unique needs.

Using tailored techniques, I support adults with anxiety, depression and bereavement .
You feel irritable and wonder whether you will ever be your old self again. You may question whether you are doing enough, are coping with a loss , or resent your partner for not helping. When you thought about starting a family, this is not quite what you expected. Nothing prepares us for motherhood, or the other curveballs life throws. Since 2005, I have met many women who think everyone else has it all together. The good news is that you can get relief from feeling overwhelmed. Imagine snapping less at people, accepting yourself, and getting through long days with more peace.

I have experience with the full range of adult problems and work with individuals experiencing intimacy and relationship issues, divorce, depression, anxiety, feelings of loneliness and/or emptiness, loss and/or grief , pervasive unhappiness, disordered eating, life transitions, self-esteem issues as well as a general dissatisfaction with life.
I view myself as both a guide and partner in the growth process which I believe involves exploration and reflection on current and historical issues that keep you feeling depressed, anxious, stagnant or unfulfilled in your life. Understanding current coping strategies and the ways in which they may have been useful in the past, but are no longer serving you well is my focus. While I believe reflection on early experience is important, I also remain grounded in the present and provide more direct interventions when needed. My style is warm, engaged, non-judgmental, empathic and active.

For the next few seconds, reflect on a cherished memory. Where were you? What were you doing? Who were you with? I picture warm summer nights playing catch outside with my Dad. The moments were simple, carefree, and happy. All too often, we let loss , grief , or unexpected change teach life’s lessons and give us perspective. We need a new way. The best lessons come from moments that offer keys to our happiness. I have over 15 years of experience helping kids, adults, couples, and families reclaim their happiness from the effects of anxiety and depression, including bipolar disorder, separation anxiety, OCD, and PTSD.
