About

The large and small struggles that we all try to push away are actually wake up calls for healing. Feelings of anxiety or depression, avoiding reminders of past emotional or physical injuries, conflict with loved ones, struggles with children, anger, addictive behavior, self doubt and confusion are all signs that its time to pause and reset. In therapy, we'll practice calming the mind and body and honor all that you've experienced to make room for the parts of yourself that need to be heard. Together we'll connect with the struggle, heal within ourselves and families and create a new chapter in your life story.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years experience working with adults, children and families healing from emotional trauma. I use traditional talk therapy, psychoeducation, skills building and mindfulness as well as play, creative arts therapy and clinical hypnosis for healing and recovery.
If your life has been derailed by loss, trauma or illness, you and/or your child don't have to be alone with the pain. Healing is possible. Give me a call to discuss whether I might be of help. I'm happy to discuss your needs and make referrals if needed. Lets moves you closer to your best life.
