As a therapist, it is my passion to help women find the healing and change they desire. In a warm and non-judgmental space, I draw from a psychodynamic approach to help you develop awareness of hidden beliefs and how these beliefs drive emotion and behavior. It is my desire to help you become your most authentic self, so that you can lead a more enriched, fulfilled life. I will work with you to build upon already present inner strength so that you can achieve the change, healing, and growth you desire.

Additional training is in working with issues relevant to Christians and women , addictions, and eating disorders.
I believe that we each have divine destinies, but too often there are obstacles such as shame and feelings of unworthiness that hinder us from seeing our purpose and possibilities. I would like to partner with you to help you regain or enhance a sense of wholeness, peace, and joy. Without these things the world can seem a scary and overwhelming place.

I have also had the privilege to work with incarcerated women , to be a light in overwhelming darkness.
From everyday struggles and family stresses to traumatic experiences, our ways of coping are constantly challenged. In my practice I support individuals in the development of their resilience to enable them to solve difficult problems and begin to thrive. With 20 years of experience my depth of empathy and skills provide the foundation for a safe, colaborative relationship. I understand that isolation debilitates and shakes people in times of distress and that connection with others is crucial to healing. I see my role as helping people discover the value of connections and supporting them as they move through the process.

I choose to empower women , as I share a deep sense of connection to the challenges this can bring in life.
I support women who may have the plan, direction and tools to get reach their dreams, but still find themselves feeling unmotivated, stuck and caught in a loop of self sabotage. When we partner together, I empower them to overcome the obstacles that hold them back and help them walk confidently towards their dreams. I do this through a two step, results driven process which gives women a deep understanding of themselves and redirects their path in life.

The second group is for women 50 and older, focus on living, aging and dying.
We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain.

The path to motherhood and the experience of being a mother are complicated journeys. Whether you’ve struggled with getting and staying pregnant or decided to pursue infertility treatment or adoption, you are not alone. You may have become a mother in a traditional way and still struggle with the demands of life or you may have decided not to pursue motherhood after unexpected difficulties. We have all experienced challenges as women and mothers and though we persevere, we rarely allow ourselves the space to process the profound personal and relational changes that occur in our lives.

I am passionate about helping women with issues related to pregnancy and/or postpartum mental health, and I'm pursuing a rigorous certification offered through PostPartum Support international.
In C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia there is a scene with a young girl named Lucy where she hears about a heroic lion named Aslan. She learns that he brings much needed hope and peace, but he is also described as strong and fierce. This prompts Lucy to ask if the lion is “safe.” The response to her is, “No… ‘course he isn’t safe. But he is good.” Choosing to start therapy (or return again), is a lot like this exchange. It can be scary to open up your hopes, fears, shame, disappointments, or trauma. But, it is good, and if you choose to take this courageous step I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing.
