I believe in the inherent resilience of individuals and their capacity for growth and healing. My goal is to empower clients to overcome obstacles, cultivate self-awareness, and live fulfilling lives aligned with their own values. As a spouse of a veteran and retired firefighter/paramedic, I bring a unique perspective to my counseling practice. My journey has been shaped by experiences witnessing the challenges faced by first responders, veterans, and their families; both on the job and at home. These experiences have fueled my passion for mental health advocacy and led me to pursue a career in counseling.

My approach to counseling is that I believe in the power of a therapeutic relationship to help overcome many obstacles in a non-judgmental, nurturing, and safe environment for adults, children, & teens. I specialize in integrative, culturally sensitive, person centered psychotherapy services that help clients lead more fulfilling lives. I use Play and Sandtray Therapy in my work with children. Play therapy can provide a child with opportunities to express complex feelings, learn developmental skills and empower the child to grow and heal. I encourage different forms of self-expression such as art and play therapy.

I have a passion for working with younger people who are experiencing many of life's firsts: first love, first heartache, first time leaving home, etc. I have taught a court ordered class on Parenting Through Divorce for more than 20 years and have helped many children and adults through that intense life transition. More recently I have worked with people who are struggling with a different life transition--those who are entering their "third act" of life and considering developing new meaning and satisfaction in life after they have launched their children.

I am a true believer that asking for help in times of need should be a normal part of the life process. Everyone deserves the opportunity to work towards having a better life; the life they want. However, life can put up a lot of barriers. It is my goal as a therapist to be able to help break down barriers with my clients. I pride myself on being a creative, warm, and ‘outside-the-box’ therapist. I think laughter and humor are also important in the therapeutic process as well. Animal-assisted therapy sessions available upon request.

I use a humanistic and strengths-based approach in efforts to focus on what is working for an individual at the time they enter therapy. Moreover, to ask the question of “What happened to you, and how did you survive?” Versus “What is wrong with you?” In using this approach, it allows me to honor the innate wisdom of an individual’s efforts to persevere, despite adverse life experiences. I aim to create a healthy alliance between the mind and body to increase the strengths that exist within each of us, discover adaptive skills of managing current stressors, and create intrinsically motivating strategies for sustainable life change.

When you reach the point where you're considering therapy, it's likely that your life is not going the way you would like and you don’t know how to fix it. You may feel overwhelmed and don’t have the energy to manage your complex, demanding responsibilities. Maybe your relationships are not very supportive, and you feel alone in facing what seem to be life’s constant battles. Perhaps you want to move beyond some traumatic experiences but you don't have much hope that things can get better. You want to feel stronger, better about yourself, and you’d like relate to those around you in a more meaningful, compassionate way.

I currently hold a Masters in Addiction and Mental Health and a Masters in Clinical Mental Health. I take an integrated approach to counseling but am based in a logotherapeutic and Existential Psychotherapeutic theoretical orientation. I utilize these approaches while incorporating concepts from therapies such as Somatic and Emotion Focused therapy. Additionally, I am currently practicing EMDR. If you are looking for a more philosophical approach that focuses on the existential givens and our place in the world while allowing room for our emotions and attachments, then I hope to work with you.

When we encounter difficulties in our lives we are effected in physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual ways. I work to help my clients understand how their history impacts them on many levels and how our past, overtime, creates patterns of communication and sets the stage that determines how we deal with life's ups and downs. If we can gain understanding of the past and connect the dots between where we began and where we are today, then we can begin to heal and create new effective ways to communicate, build healthy relationships and realize more fulfillment in our lives.

“Healing takes time and asking for help is a courageous step” (Mariska Hargitay). You don’t have to heal alone, engaging in therapy for you and your child is the first step in helping you both heal.

I specialize in working with children and teens who have ASD, sensory processing issues, behavioral issues, anxiety, and ADHD. I also involve parents in the therapy process, as parents play a vital role in helping their children grow.
