"I work with individuals, couples, and groups that are faced with a variety of challenges, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict and dissatisfaction, infidelity, impulse control, and adjustment issues. I am trained and use ACT principles when working with my clients. ACT is a mindfulness, acceptance, and commitment approach to psychotherapy. Working together, I help clients slow down the thought process so they can thoughtfully respond to difficult thoughts and emotions. This allows you to take value-based behavioral action as opposed to having emotional, automatic reactions."

You deserve the opportunity to feel your best and I would be honored to help you on your journey towards emotional healing and self-discovery. The best part of being a therapist is getting to discover all the unique strengths and coping skills that everyone possesses, and helping them identify and access those gifts. I love working with people in all stages of life, and truly believe in the healing power of a strong, therapeutic relationship. "

Those who want to establish a mind/body/spirit connection and have more joy in their lives will benefit the most by working with me. My excitement for counseling and coaching comes from helping people create wellness and balance, while going through life's transitions: adolescence, college, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, adjusting to losses and dealing with health issues.

Contrary to our 'push through the pain' culture, self-compassion has been proven to actually enhance our performance and our sense of well-being.

"I focus on creating a safe, collaborative, and trusting therapeutic relationship. I base my work on the belief that we are all affected by relationships. This can be relationships with family, partners, friends, co-workers, or even the relationship we have with ourself. How do we repair these relationships? Compassion, empathy, and understanding for ourselves and others. Sometimes other parts of us that feel anger, fear, or sadness can get in the way of this understanding. Psychotherapy can be a way to move through painful emotions and reconnect to your confidence, courage, and creativity."
