While not everyone needs therapy, I believe that almost everyone can benefit from it. As a therapist, my greatest reward is to be a part of the process in which my clients discover their own resources, wisdom, and integrity as they overcome obstacles and move toward healing. My areas of specialty include treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, and life transitions.

Asking for help is not always easy which is why I view it as a significant strength. No one should feel alone or feel they lack support when trying to navigate and overcome the many challenges life may unexpectedly throw their way. Being an advocate for social justice and helping people reach their full potential are my passions, so it’s only natural that social work is my life calling. I have witnessed time and time again the transformative power therapy has in people's lives, which motivates me to be the best social worker I can be. I'm committed to helping my clients meet their goals and reach their full potential.

There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

Together, let's explore the mental, emotional, spiritual and behavioral patterns which are interfering with your ability to maintain harmony within yourself and in your relationships with others. Come to create the shift you need to blossom.

Although there are times when we feel broken, hopeless, and unsure of the future, there is hope. As a therapist, I provide a safe and secure environment for you to process your vulnerabilities, expand your coping skills and begin to heal. We work together to create a personalized plan that works best for you. My approach emphasizes the unconscious mind, therapeutic interpretation and early childhood experiences. I help you better understand the unconscious forces which impact your current thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

My approach to therapy is that of a guide, helping people discover their own inner strength so they can make positive changes. Clients say that my laid back demeanor and calming presence allow a safe, relaxing place to talk openly and work through concerns together. While both direct and supportive, I tailor my approach based on the individual needs of each client. Whether child, teen or adult, I feel it is a privilege to help clients find healing and happiness.

My therapeutic approach is compassionate, validating, and empathic. I believe that everyone wants to feel heard, understood, valued, and validated and I work with you to gain an understanding of who you are and what you want. I believe therapy is a very personal journey and I strive to ensure every client feels incredible support. I believe that therapy is a healing process. We find the parts of ourselves that need healing to lead us to a better quality of life. I work with all races, sexual orientations, and genders. A favorite quote that I relate to therapy is, "Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyway."

Your relationship is unraveling before you. You never imagined things could get this bad or that you would ever deal with such painful issues. You’re feeling invalidated, misunderstood, confused, hurt, and angry on a regular basis. All you want is to be happy again. You find yourself doubting the relationship and yourself on a regular basis. You've even considered what it would be like if you weren't together anymore. Other times you want to do everything you can to fix the problems but your efforts just aren't getting you the long term results you want. Your head is constantly spinning. Things were supposed to be different.

It's amazing that even despite our similarities as humans, we are all so very different individually. We all have our own unique experiences, challenges, and struggles. It may even feel lonely being the only one who knows your exact feelings. However, if someone could just understand a fraction of what you are going through, there can be a sense of hope - and a sense of connection.

I have found the heart of therapeutic work lies in meeting clients where they are and supporting individuals and couples as they identify what they already know to be true. I view every client through a strengths-based, trauma informed, and holistic lens. I know how trauma can hold us back from meeting life goals and want to work with you through this process.
