Life is hard and, at times, it can be scary, lonely, confusing, and stressful. People are searching for greater happiness, fulfilling relationships, meaning and personal growth. For the past 5 years, I have specialized in failure to launch, trauma, chronic illness, and motivation issues. I believe in the importance of empowerment through self-confidence and self-compassion. Together, we will work to create the life you deserve, a life with joy, purpose and connection.
I provide both beginner and advanced level therapy. The work involves a uniquely tailored approach made just for you. You will learn coping skills to help decrease stress, accomplish goals, and get to know the limitless potential within you so that you may live a more authentic, rewarding and meaningful life.
Great therapy starts with a great therapeutic relationship. I utilize an empathic yet direct approach, which promotes personal awareness, self-understanding, and self-esteem. I take an active role in connecting with clients. The relationship we create will be one of honesty, trust, hope and empowerment. Its time to put YOU first.

Mens Telehealth COVID-19 Support group

COVID-19 has changed life for all of us. This is a difficult time but you are not alone. This group offers an opportunity to connect with other men in a safe environment to discuss and process member's fears and concerns. Also, we will work together to develop empowering coping skills. Although the challenges faced by men and women are more similar than they are different, this group is focused on the COVID-19 challenges faced by men. We will discuss such issues as loss of identity, feelings of powerlessness, anxiety and depression, and failure to respond.
