I believe that getting to the root of the problem--not just managing symptoms-- is key to transformation. I enjoy being part of the healing process; empowering people to discover their own capacity for growth and change. I believe each of us already holds the keys to our highest good. I have helped a range of people, men, women, teens, and members of the LGBTQ community, examine their lives from new perspectives and discover new solutions. I would love to help YOU blossom! My passion is helping people navigate a path to safety, wholeness & healing.

Not Accepting New Clients - Are you looking to find peace, perseverance, and resilience through everyday struggles and stressors? Imagine what it would feel like to not worry all the time or do the “what-if” dance in your mind. Whether your struggles are about a life transition, a relationship issue, experiencing stress, physical & emotional changes such as peri-menopause/menopause, or anything else that feels like "something's not quite right," finding a safe outlet to express yourself, understand your anxiety, build your coping skills, and find solutions is where your transformation begins.

CHANGE your THINKING, CHANGE your LIFE -- in WEEKS, not years. Over 50% of my clients obtain the results they want within 7 sessions. “Children learn what they live; then as adults, they LIVE WHAT THEY LEARNED.” Often this is the basis for one's problems. Resolve your problems by learning new information and skills that I will teach you. “DON'T REPEAT PROBLEMS. RESOLVE THEM.” Research and my 25+ years experience document that this is the quickest, most effective approach to resolving problems to live a happier, healthier, more satisfying life. Medication treats symptoms, not causes; correct the causes. Reviews @ Healthgrades.com

Family life can be where we feel loved and supported, or we feel confusion, overwhelm, and grief. Family life is already complicated, especially when it is impacted by trauma, neurodiveristy, or adoption and foster care, or some combination of all three. Subsequently, you can feel misunderstood, alone, and "othered" by friends and family. And I see you! I provide a safe and compassionate environment through the lens of relational neuroscience, specializing in the care for adults and parents impacted by trauma, neurodiversity, adoption, and foster care.

It takes courage to seek support, and the rewards of doing so can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment. I understand, have experienced, and can empathize with the emotional challenges life has to offer. Working together, we can cultivate growth by understanding the obstacles that you face and develop solutions that can help you gain control of your life. Ultimately, therapy can guide you to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and most importantly, a more fulfilling life.

This has been such a hard season for many individuals and families navigating challenging issues with grief and loss. Most of my work has been providing support to children, adolescents, and adults during stressful experiences and transitions. My job allows me the privilege to witness the resilience and strength of individuals as they move through unexpected challenges. I believe it is important for all people to have a safe, non-judgmental, authentic space to feel validated and to help bring balance and healing to their life. I also work with therapists and medical providers who experience trauma and loss at work.

Let's be honest, it's been a tough year (or two!) and our kiddos have been through some stuff. Have you noticed your child feeling more anxious and worried? Are they having issues in relationships at school? Isolating themselves for just feeling down in general? I help children, teens and young adults become more self-confident, more able to manage big emotions, and be more effective in their relationships. I collaborate with parents to develop a clear path to healing for your child and provide regular, check-ins with parents. Therapy will be fun and your child will be on their way to feeling like their favorite self again.

I believe that therapy can be the key to unlocking your higher potential, regardless of where you are at in life. Human beings have incredible capabilities and strength but that can be difficult to discover on your own whilst facing life’s many challenges. I work with clients who experience anxiety, depression, ADHD, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, addiction, interpersonal/relationship issues, trauma and more. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy with a focus on the therapeutic relationship so that we can focus on who you are, what you need and what you want in a flexible and compassionate manner.

Sometimes the hardest thing is asking for help. Choosing to enter therapy is a courageous act and one of the best gifts you could give yourself. Finding the right therapist for you, someone whom you can trust, who makes you feel safe, and believes in you might feel difficult and daunting at times but is also one of the strongest predictors of successful therapy. I feel honored and grateful to each and every one of my clients who entrusted me with their stories and embarked on their healing journey with me. My goal is to meet you where you are and help you gain the necessary insight and skills to live the life you want and deserve.

I enjoy working with clients who are looking to enhance the connections within themselves, their relationships, and their families. I believe growth happens when people have a safe place that encourages them to communicate what is often hard to express in times of distress, conflict, and traumatic life experiences. As a trauma-informed therapist, I work with individuals/couples/families and children, utilizing various relationally focused approaches, including play, to identify and support the challenges they are facing. Together in therapy, I strive to uncover healing methods that continually strengthen each chapter of your life.

I’m glad you’re thinking about therapy. It’s not always easy. Most of us operate under the idea we should be able to figure it out on our own. But unfortunately that’s just not always true. We often build walls and create patterns just to survive. That’s the truth of it all, you’re a survivor because you’re here. I help my clients understand all parts of themselves and uncover what parts may be holding them back, while learning tools to help break these disruptive cycles. There are no bad parts, and you (or your teen) aren’t broken. I’d love to help, feel free to email, or call me when you’re ready.

I take pride in assisting families with children who are experiencing mood disturbances or having behavioral struggles at home and school. I have years of experience engaging with a diverse youth population with a variety of emotional and behavioral problems, including but not limited to autism, ADHD, defiance (ODD), antisocial behavior (CD and homicidality), and suicidality. Often times, families and youth that are struggling are in need of special attention and instruction that I as a professional offer. Therapy can help to decrease problem behaviors and family conflict while strengthening family bonds.
