We all find ourselves at times in our life that we require nurturance to help us through life's changes. Loss in our lives requires care and guidance by a professional. Loss may be defined in various ways, it may be death, divorce , depression, addictions, infidelity, anxiety, infertility just to name a few. I work to specifically assist individuals, couples, families and groups to alleviate emotional disorders, to understand conscious and unconscious motivation, to resolve emotional, relationship and attitudinal conflicts and to help modify behaviors that interfere with effective emotional, social adaptive, and intellectual functioning.

Many of life's natural events - such as the death of a loved one, a divorce , job/career changes, relationship issues, health problems, midlife concerns and aging - can uncover feelings of deep loss, sadness, stress, confusion, disillusionment, or emptiness.
I offer caring, insightful, professional help in navigating through experiences of grief, loss & life transitions. Whether you are facing acute grief brought on by a recent loss or suffering the cumulative effects of losses long past yet still painfully present, these experiences can be catalysts for profound growth. It would be my privilege to assist you in identifying and gently letting go of your obstacles to more authentic, centered, full and satisfying living.

Sometimes life takes you in a direction that you did not anticipate. You may feel confused, lost, sad, disappointed and/or anxious about what the future holds for you. I aim to help individuals who are experiencing significant life changes such as becoming a new mom, the loss of a parent or spouse, marriage/relationship difficulties, divorce , (including contemplating divorce , going through the divorce process, moving on from divorce , or blending a family) or becoming an empty nester. All of these life events can evoke emotions that we may not be able to understand and often times become overwhelming.

I am also a trained Divorce Mediator.
I feel that the most important component of every successful therapy outcome is the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. Trust, safety, empathy, and authenticity should be experienced within the relationship. These relationship qualities create an environment conducive to working on life’s issues and feeling comfortable throughout the process of change. I take a collaborative approach to therapy to meet the goals presented by my clients. My style is interactive and my treatment orientation is tailored to each individual client to meet their individual needs and to fit with their unique personalities.

I have worked with individuals, couples, and families as they've grieved the loss of a loved one, as divorce unraveled their sense of stability, or as unforeseen events and difficult transitions presented.
I believe it is a true privilege to be able to help others work through some of their most difficult times in life. I see each person as having unique needs, dreams, strengths and challenges, and I know that working collaboratively with a client requires that I first understand and honor who that individual is. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, and it is often a daunting task to find a therapist who is the right fit. I would love the opportunity to talk with you, so that you may decide if I am the right counselor for you.

I provide transformative child counseling so kids can find relief from mental struggles and I work to equip parents with tools to make meaningful connections with the kiddos for a lifetime.

My experience expands from helping families and children with special needs to relationship conflict, including domestic violence, sexual assault survivors, and divorce .
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.

Whether your child is struggling with behaviors at school, experiencing difficulty managing peer relationships, learning to process change at home due to divorce , death, or illness, or navigating trauma, grief, or loss- I provide a safe environment for children to process emotions and learn skills to cope with life's many challenges.
"Kids are resilient." "They'll grow out of it." "This too shall pass." Are you feeling exhausted hanging on to these parenting tropes while raising a big feeling kid? Are you feeling as if no parenting books have prepared you for the challenges of raising a child with big emotions, high anxiety, or defiant behaviors? Therapy is a powerful tool in which children learn to process their feelings and regulate their emotions. Early intervention in children's therapy is key to raising an emotionally healthy child while fostering deeper connection and harmony at home and at school.

My expertise is helping clients manage mood disorders (anxiety and depression), overcome their substance abuse and really anchor their recovery, and assisting with major life transitions (including dealing with a spouse or family member who struggles with chemical dependence, divorce , empty-nesters, grief and loss of life partners, career changes, etc).
Your healing can begin right now when you make the brave decision to choose a therapist who will listen deeply, seek to understand your feelings, and help you create a new and empowering story about who you truly are. That is my approach to therapy. My aim is to teach my clients how to identify old, limiting beliefs that interfere with their relationships, their sense of purpose, and inner peace. Together, we can work on healing the unhealthy relationship you have with yourself if you are willing to shed that old identity to embrace one that is whole, genuine, and resilient.
