It is important for individuals to feel empowered in their everyday lives, feeling confident they can move forward working towards their goals. Each individual is different. I aid in helping identify strengths and positive qualities that make each individual unique. I encourage individuals to be the best version of themselves, providing support when barriers present themselves. Life cannot always be perfect, but the right attitude and outlook can go a long way. I work primarily with adults 18 and older addressing issues including depression, anxiety, life adjustment issues, marital issues, grief, stress management, self-esteem, and overall balance and wellness.

My personal belief is that when situations in life are thrown at us we can ignore them or try to accept and work through them. Each thing we go through in life impacts who we are as a person. We can either let them make us bitter or make us better. My goal for clients is to help you on your journey by providing tools, education, and support so you can find positive solutions to your problems by creating a comfortable, non-judgmental environment by demonstrating unconditional positive regard.

Do you find yourself struggling with something you feel like no one else will understand, or perhaps there is no one you can confide in for fear of being judged? Keeping things bottled up creates interpersonal conflict, affects our relationships, and hinders the ability to change. I believe that individuals want to be heard and understood, all the while respecting their unique differences.

*currently accepting new clients* Following a loss or life transition, it's common to feel disconnected, disillusioned, lacking confidence and motivation. If you've recently experienced a serious health diagnosis, divorce, estrangement, empty nest, or death. You may not be sure how to move forward into an uncharted landscape. You may question your beliefs, values, relationships, and priorities. You may miss your “old life” your “old self”. This is grief. Transformation. Transition. Right now, even the smallest effort can feel overwhelming, and I’m glad you’ve taken the step of coming here to see if therapy is for you.

Do you run away from things you are afraid of or shut down? I can help you gain confidence and courage. Ruminating on what causes anxiety doesn't help, it just makes it worse. Feeling like there is no hope is immobilizing and it tears down your ability to feel good about what is happening in life. Disturbing events or traumas can be so devastating that it makes one feel like there is constant danger ahead or like there must be something wrong with them for allowing such things to happen. Let me help you feel less depressed, anxious, obsessed, or afraid and give you the boost that you need to create the life you want.
