About

Are you living a life you love, or are you stuck in the familiar “one step forward, two steps back” dance? Life can be colorfully painful, beautifully complicated, and completely overwhelming—and none of us were given a how-to guide. We all experience complicated twists and unexpected turns that cause sadness, worry, anger, and destructive patterns with food, drugs, alcohol, and within our closest relationships. Our lives are too short to lose precious time to unhappiness, feeling hopeless, and being stuck in the same vicious cycles. Therapy can give you a personalized roadmap to help you design a life you love.
I help children, adults, families, and couples break free from these unhealthy cycles, rewrite their life narratives, and make changes to create a life truly worth living. I have over 10 years of experience working with children and families, and have specialized, evidence-based training in depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, and behavioral issues.
Choosing a therapist is a bit like shopping for new jeans: you need a fit that may initially feel new and, at times, slightly uncomfortable as we work through the tough stuff, with the confidence that over time, you’ll feel safe, secure and supported. Life is messy. Finding the "right fit” in therapy can help you find meaning in its colorful chaos.
