I want to see the world as you see it, witness what you have done to survive, and help you remove the obstacles blocking your path toward growth and freedom. Who you are and how you behave are shaped by your experiences, thoughts, and beliefs. Although we can have gratitude for what has helped you survive, it may no longer serve you. I am a growth-focused and compassionate professional with hands-on experience in delivering practical and emotional support to a wide range of clients. I use an integrative approach to treat the whole person instead of symptoms attributed to multiple diagnoses.
*My practice is full; unable to accept new clients* Are you struggling with ANXIETY (chronic, panic, social, or situational), your RELATIONSHIP(s), DEPRESSION, or unresolved CHILDHOOD HURTS/ TRAUMA? Do any of these sound like you? Stressed to the max | avoiding certain situations | unable to focus/ losing sleep from endless worry | stuck in patterns of conflict & misunderstanding | feel disconnected from your partner | hopeless/ helpless/ minimal energy | stuck in shame "not enough" | you have reactions in the present that seem disproportionate or you are "triggered" often. If so, I'd love to help.
We all have the power to create happiness in our life. Sometimes we just need help figuring out how to overcome the obstacles that keep us from getting there. Nothing brings me greater joy than helping my clients experience personal and social empowerment and finding contentment in their life. Therapy doesn't start and end after our session, it moves beyond the safety of my office, so they can practice the skills they learn and feel successful managing their life independent of the therapy. I am a warm, accepting and passionate therapist, dedicated to helping people live happier, healthier lives.

Finding a counselor that you connect with is an invaluable part of the counseling process. Building an honest and open therapeutic relationship is the foundation to personal growth.

Change is hard. We all hit a rough patch from time to time where we can use some help navigating the challenges of work/school, relationships, or any of life’s challenges. Or perhaps, you’ve been struggling with a long term issue on your own and need some help in working it through. As a clinical psychologist with 25+ years experience, I see my role as helping patients to find their strengths and identify opportunities towards building a more productive coping strategy. This may include focusing on changes in thoughts, feelings and/or behaviors. Every individual and every situation is unique and deserves a unique solution.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with clinical experience working with children, adolescents and families in clinical and school settings. I help my clients learn skills that will help them become the inner self they aspire to be. My areas of focus include anxiety, eating disorders, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, mood disorders, family conflict, and trauma. I help provide a space that allows a person to be themselves without the pressures that society places on each of us.
I believe relationships are a foundational and necessary way we interact with the world around us. One of the most valuable aspects of my job is to be able to enter into a person’s relationship with themselves and others. I have a passion for coming alongside people and helping them discover their own ability for change and growth.
Today Living authentically and intentionally is no easy task. Obstacles from within or outside of ourselves often wear a person down, leading them toward a life of settling, and emotional mediocracy. Let me help you cope with life’s many twists and turns while accompanying you on your journey to emotionally thrive. I would love to walk with you for a season, short or long, toward relief and discovery; to discover more about yourself and help you become who you want to be. The work of my life is to help clients overcome emotional blocks that prevent them from full personal relief and growth.

Building an honest and open therapeutic relationship is the foundation for success in counseling. I believe that my down to earth personality and passion to help and connect with others provide a safe and comfortable environment to explore the issues you may be facing.

We will not get through this life without suffering, but it is up to us to transform distress into something positive. I believe in the power of the therapeutic alliance – the bond that develops between therapist and client(s) and the ability to be a catalyst for growth and change. I love listening to my client’s stories and giving them the opportunity to feel seen, understood and respected.
Struggles are a normal part of life and sometimes we get stuck. I create a safe, comfortable environment for my clients that facilitates healing and growth. I value the relational connections that are developed through counseling. Working hand in hand with my clients, we combine my training and experience with their expertise about who they are, what brought them in and where they want to go. I help people find comfort in their emotions, equipping them with skills and insight in order to manage and benefit from them, rather than be controlled by them.
Many of us, from time to time, find that depression, anxiety or stress can cause us to get "stuck", where negative thoughts and unhelpful behavior patterns keep us from meeting the goals we wish to achieve, or enjoying our relationships to the fullest degree possible. I can help you move beyond those "stuck points", and to identify the obstacles and challenges in your way. I will help empower you to achieve your personal goals for a healthy, successful life. Together we will work to create a unique and specific plan, where you will develop new, positive patterns of thinking and behavior.

I work with individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents.
I believe that creative expression has the ability to reach the deepest part of us, where words may not exist. It can be difficult for clients to talk about the issues that bother them, but I find that making art can open up those conversations easily. I embrace having empathy and understanding for my client's stories in order to accentuate their own strengths and values.
