I work with people, not labels. It’s about you, not a diagnosis. And it’s about me, not a degree. It becomes about us working together for your goals, whatever those are-I can help. We’re so surprised when we feel something but it “doesn’t make sense”. We “should” ourselves & judge. We waste a helluva lot of time doing this. How often have you tried to think yourself out of a feeling? I know!! Me too. Doesn't work. Together we can figure out how & why you think & feel the way you do. You can't think your way out of depression, anxiety, trauma or anything else. You can talk & feel yourself out, though. Here is what I believe.

As a therapist specializing in children and teens, I've found the most impactful thing I can be is a non-judgmental, encouraging, and authentic voice. Children and teens need validation and a warm and caring adult who will work to understand the difficulties they experience. In my time providing these services, I've realized that we never grow out of needing these qualities. In other words, my work with children and teens has guided me to approach my work with adults in a more holistic and compassionate fashion.

New couples are often reluctant to seek help. Be it stigma surrounding couple's therapy or feeling like they are "not old enough," couples often wait until resentment and unhappiness have grown to distressing levels before reaching out for help. This has only become more true as more folx are spending time at home due to the COVID pandemic. According to relationship expert Dr. John Gottman, couples often endure an average of six years of unhappiness before seeking help. Why let years of resentment build up when you can spend that time strengthening your bond and finding new ways to overcome and adapt to life's inevitable conflicts?

I believe that every person has inherent value, and was uniquely made for this Earth. Most people saw the best in themselves and others, when at some point they were overcome with disappointment, hurt, or other of life's challenges. When this happens they may find themselves asking, "Who is there to listen without judgement?, or "Who can I tell what happened when I think nobody will understand?" These people want to have a life worth living, but feel like it's too much to navigate on their own.

Life is a journey that we each take and sometimes we can become tired and overwhelmed. It can be the weight of going through each day completing basic tasks, or the weight of being a parent, a spouse, a child or a friend that becomes too much to handle by yourself. If you have been feeling this way, I would love to be that person to sit, listen, and be present with you. Seeking out a therapist, for some, is overwhelming and out of their comfort zone.

I have a strong background in family systems, school collaboration and developmental and attachment theory which is instrumental in my work with clients.
