During this Covid Safe at Home time, all sessions are conducted via telehealth. Sessions range from 30 minutes (younger clients) to 60 minutes. Insurance companies continue to cover tele-health during this time, so there should not be an additional charge outside of your typical co-pay. For children under 8, I work with parents and caregivers using Child Parent Relationship Therapy. This allows me to work individually with parents to teach skills so that you may work with your child at home. These skills are lifelong skills, which most find to be extremely helpful!
Every day, we are faced with tasks that spreads us thin, and often times we forget to take care of ourselves. Things such as stress, anxiety, and depression creep upon us and before we realize it, we find ourselves stuck in a hole wondering how we got here. This can make one feel inflated or inferior, but I am here to help. It is my mission to help you realize that you are not alone, and that there is a way to overcome any obstacle you are facing.
The ideal client is someone who is willing to participate in their recovery from what it is they are dealing with. The client may need assistance in overcoming various problems in their life, or they may be experiencing a limited number of items which they need help with, but either way, it is my ambition to be there for them through any and all they are experiencing.

Navigating adolescence and young adulthood can be hard. There is peer pressure, pressure to succeed in school, transition to adulthood, and other stressors that are unique to adolescents and young adults. Trust me to provide evidence based practices that fit your needs.
I believe we are all searching to feel comfortable and whole within ourselves and with others. To have strong healthy relationships and to weather the hardships of life, grieve, and recover. If you're having trouble with any of these things it's my job to help you understand why, and to provide a place for you to "shift" into a better position. Anything can be confronted, understood, and shifted into a healthier, more satisfying way of being if you are willing. I believe everyone deserves a chance to live comfortably within themselves and with others.
I work with couples and individuals who need a systemic perspective on how problems interact in relationships. Then, with my specialized lens, I am able to help clients get “unstuck” after years of no or low quality sex, desire discrepancies, medical issues that create disconnection, and pent up frustrations between partners. I am skilled, humorous, direct, honest, and loving with my clients. And I’m a welcoming, justice oriented, creative thinker who does not judge and is willing to walk alongside you through it all: fear, trauma, doubt, shame, guilt, sadness, and dark nights of the soul.
Keeping secrets and hiding parts of the self can be painful, overwhelming, create confusion and leave us feeling alone and anxious about the future. Many of my clients find they simply need a safe and open place where the unspoken can be disclosed and better understood. Together we explore new perspectives, and develop patterns of living that better serve deeper connection, intimacy and fulfilling interactions with themselves and those closest to them.
