Aren't you tired of being told to "relax", "stop overthinking", "you are too sensitive" and "you worry too much"? People tell you this as if you don't want to relax, stop overthinking, let things get you upset and worry! If you could, you would! Hearing this from friends and family members doesn't help. In fact, it can make you feel even worse. You have tried to stop on your own but your mind continues to fill up with things that make you stressed out and you have a hard time turning it off. You are not alone! I get it and can completely relate! That is why I love helping people find relief.

An Invitation to come as you are...Sometimes it's easy to forget or move away from who you are and your story. There are many life circumstances that may impact and influence how you feel about and perceive yourself as well as others. Shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, anger, disappointment, sadness, illness, grief, loss and broken relationships are a part of many peoples' life stories yet sometimes it can be difficult to accept those parts of one's journey. I invite you to come with all the pieces of who you are and share your story.

How often do you find yourself saying, "I want to live to my fullest potential and nothing is going to stop me." Now you, more than likely, think "If I can just get through the day, I'm good." When was the last time you felt you could make positive change for good. It's painful to feel stuck, indecisive and overwhelmed. You long for the quality of life you believe you deserve but, often, are not sure what to do next. I have over 20 years experience in helping clients address life issues related to depression, anxiety, substance use and trauma.

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.

I understand you may feel alone, as though no one can possibly get what you are going through. Having thoughts and feelings that confuse and frighten you. Feelings of being trapped in an endless spiral of doom. Fearing you will be stuck feeling this way forever. Isolating yourself from your loved ones. Having a Lack of interest in life, feeling fatigued and exhausted. Constant worry which makes sleeping difficult. Feeling overwhelmed and having thoughts of giving up.

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.

I recognize that entering into a counseling relationship takes both courage and trust. I truly believe that we all have the possibility for personal growth. I approach counseling from a collaborative, person-centered approach that honors the complexity of identity (ethnicity, gender, disability, language, sexual orientation and any other factors that relate to an individual's personal, societal and cultural experiences). I utilize an integrative approach that incorporates mindfulness and body awareness.

"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.
