I believe that therapy is a unique place to take a breath and a step back to figure out the direction to go. Life is a journey with both highs and lows. I believe that everyone can improve their lives and enjoy helping others identify the changes needed to better themselves. I am down-to-earth, relatable and genuine. I also enjoy pointing out the irony of everyday life and getting my clients to laugh at times. I believe therapy is beneficial to everyone and practice it myself.

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.

Your inner critic says things like "Why can't you just stop doing this to yourself? You know this is all your fault." It also slides in with comments like "Why even bother....you're never going to be good enough anyway." and "Look at yourself. Why would anyone want to be with someone like you?" Sometimes you want to scream, and other times you just want to cry. Often, you find yourself missing out on friendships and social events because they don't fit in with your latest eating plan, or you're too down on yourself to be around anyone else. You find yourself feeling angry, lonely, and, sometimes, scared. It's not who you want to be.

Smart, driven teen girls and women are often praised for keeping it all together - even if it means secretly falling apart behind the scenes. There's a lot of pressure to be the best at everything you do, which means there is no room for mistakes, and definitely no room for self-care. You wind up feeling panicked, overwhelmed, frustrated, or depressed. You often worry about what others think of you, and wish you could turn off that little voice that is always telling you what a failure you are. You wonder if anyone else ever feels like this. You know this isn't exactly normal...but you're not sure what to do about it.

I work best with clients that are open to exploring their feelings and emotions in new ways. Grief support is my specialty and I also work with trauma, anticipatory grief, anxiety and depression. When I support grievers, we work together to determine how and if you'd like to honor your person that died, explore feelings around their death, and what life looks like now.

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.

Finding the support that you need is no easy feat, and the fact that you are here is a wonderful first step. By consistently cultivating a liberating and judgement-free space, I aim to help you explore personal challenges through an empathic and compassionate lens. My therapeutic style is best described as eclectic; however, I often utilize narrative therapy to help people gain a more holistic understanding of their thought patterns and behaviors.

Your romantic relationship just isn’t what it used to be. You keep trying to get it back on track but it only seems to be getting worse. You’re fighting more often and constantly feeling misunderstood. It feels like you can’t even go a few days without getting annoyed or mad at each other. At times you dread going home and find reasons to stay away. You’re having a hard time remembering the last time you went on a date, had fun together or maybe even had a normal conversation. At times you are doing everything you can just to make it through the week.
