My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

I believe almost all problems are solvable. If you decide to see me for therapy, the first thing I'll probably ask is, "What's going on? Why have you come?" Perhaps you're having difficulty with a relationship or your struggling with a child or your weight. You may be trying to decide if you want to continue in a relationship or look for another job. Or you've noticed that you're drinking too much or getting too angry or obsessing. Maybe you're feeling anxious, depressed or lonely, and despite your best efforts, you can't seem to shake these feelings.

There's this lingering sense of negativity, self-doubt, and not being good enough. Stress is accumulating and the demands you're facing are outweighing your resources. Your drive to reach goals, connect with others, and enjoy life is declining. You notice that same cycle of perfectionism, anxiety, and shame repeating itself, causing you to feel trapped, overwhelmed, and powerless. It's not just affecting your mind. It's also taking a toll on your body and your relationships. Avoid the burnout. Make a choice to make a change.

Are you depressed, struggling with low self-esteem, lacking motivation, or needing help transitioning through life? I believe that every individual has what it takes to succeed and live a fulfilling life. Sometimes, we have to go through the darkest storms to see the brightest rainbows.

I know what it is like to be afraid of your own mind. When we experience trauma it creates change in your life that you have not chosen. When kids experience unwanted change, they behave with the most unloving behaviors. But when we are brave enough to begin the healing process it creates change you do choose. Children find the love that they so desperately need and don’t know how to obtain. As we work together in your healing process, I will meet you where you are, always believing and trusting in you. You know what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, and what experiences have been deeply buried.

When we think of a counselor or sitting down with a therapist there is that taboo attached to people of being psychotic and crazy. Really, it’s not, it’s just sitting down having a conversation. You don’t have to struggle in silence. All great achievements require time. Remember, darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. As we set and talk I will help you find the light that allows you to stop being a prisoner in your past and become the architect of your future.
