About

Do things seem overwhelming? Are you uncertain? Do you have doubts? Does your mind torment you? Are you confused or even scared? Suffering? If so, you have found the right person. Things CAN get better. I am here to help you regain a sense of control over your life, build coping skills, and assist you in making the changes you desire. I would be honored to journey with you, offering you a safe space to tell your story and sustained compassion along the way.
I have a particular fondness working with OCD and its sub-types (harm, aggression, sexual, religious, contamination, illness, etc.). I also specialize in religious/spiritual trauma and those who are struggling with doubt and uncertainty around spirituality. And, a large part of my work is with anxiety, depression, relationships, and personality disorders.
As clients work with me, they discover they are loved, regain a sense of dignity and self-worth, and feel hopeful about the future. They become less fearful and more confident. They experience joy and peace where they once felt distress. Mental/emotional pain is agonizing, but it doesn't have to be permanent. Change, healing, and freedom are yours to claim.
