Life has granted me a wealth of experience with trauma, abuse, interpersonal violence, divorce, grief, power biases, biracial and multicultural relationships, spiritual/religious issues, women's issues, mood and personality disorders.
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.
Everyone experiences change throughout their lives, it’s what keeps us human. From welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world to grieving the loss of loved ones, our lives are constantly in transition. However, change is difficult. Adjusting to change can bring about stress, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, and depression. Yet, in these moments of change is where personal growth is cultivated. Are you experiencing a life change? Are you starting college, newly married, or changing careers? Are you moving, going through a divorce, or retiring? If so, therapy can help you navigate through this transition and grow in the process.
Do you feel yourself powerless in the face of strong emotions and spiraling thoughts? I can guide you to learn how to accept all parts of yourself, the "wanted" as well as the "unwanted" and gain a productive distance from thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Are you feeling fragmented by competing demands that leave you feeling unfulfilled? I can help you discover your own values and help you create actions plans that are in line with your core values. Do family dynamics leave you feeling joyless? Do you find yourself having the same arguments with little resolution? Are you struggling with self-esteem issues?
I enjoy working with adults and couples in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment where you can share your thoughts and feelings while giving you helpful, practical skills and information on how you can gain power and happiness in your life as well as peace.

I enjoy helping couples of all stages and challenges to succeed with long term happiness and peace in their relationships.
I believe mental health is as important as any other aspect of our lives. In ways, the most important part of our life. Life can present itself with complex, overwhelming, stressful, and traumatic circumstances we cannot change or resolve, and we all need help from time to time! My goal is to partner with you on your journey and access your existing skills while developing new ones. I tailor my therapeutic technique to my clients’ needs. Together, we will understand what makes you unique and the best ways to pursue strengthening your mental health.

On the outside you have it all together. Nobody would ever guess deep down you question your self-esteem, self-worth, sense of identity, and life's purpose. You frequently wonder who you are at your core if you aren't a parent, a spouse, an employee, or some other role. At times you feel lost and disconnected from yourself and others, which has resulted in anxiety, frustration, depression, and further isolation. Maybe you've experienced a life transition that has left you reeling and you finally feel ready for some soul searching and deep, candid internal conversations. If this is you, then we have work to do.
Growth occurs when individuals confront problems, struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop new aspects of their skills, capacities, views about life. C.R. Wesley P.

With all the ups and downs that life throws at us daily, we can all use someone to talk to when things become overwhelming. You may need to process a traumatic experience that you have faced in the past or present. Maybe you need someone to help you navigate your anxiety and depression. Or maybe you need someone to empathetically listen and help you work through your emotions and experiences in a non-judgmental, safe, and comforting environment. I invite you to come and sit on my couch and allow me to guide you on your journey to healing and self-awareness. ~Verily, with every hardship comes ease.~

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate who enjoys working with children ages 10 and older, individuals, couples, and families. My approach in the therapeutic relationship is to be a companion with you on your journey of discovery and understanding. I work with clients experiencing symptoms of ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, childhood behavioral issues, relational distress, trauma, and race based traumatic stress. I work with individuals who have been marginalized, put in a box and/or overlooked. You are both welcomed and respected.
I enjoy working with adolescents who have a history of trauma and are looking for support in learning how to navigate symptoms. I also enjoy working with adults who are looking to improve symptoms of anxiety, life stressors, self-esteem, depression and who have also experienced trauma. I work to provide a safe space to discuss concerns in daily living and normalize mental health, removing the negative stigmas that can be placed around it.
TRUST – It’s a simple word, but for those who have been hurt – physically, sexually, emotionally, or spiritually – it’s far from simple to do. Trust is not something I will expect from you initially, but something I will feel honored to earn, as our therapeutic alliance grows and we celebrate together the courage it took for you to seek therapy. I can help you discover what you would like your life to become, even if that sounds impossible right now. I am an LCSW with experience in working with adults and children. I believe individual change can break cycles of abuse and promote parenting styles to build up future generations.
Do you feel as though high levels of stress, worry, or anxiety are keeping you from connecting with others or living your life in a valued and meaningful way? Are you finding yourself straining under the requirements of a high-stress or fast-paced career? At some point, we all will encounter difficult experiences or life transitions that can often create a lot of undesirable thoughts, poor self-confidence, and a discouraging lack of motivation. Psychotherapy can help you navigate these difficult thoughts and feelings and reclaim a life of value, meaning, and vitality.
When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy (as opposed to the use of anxiety medication alone) treats more than just symptoms to the problem. Therapy can help uncover the causes of your fears, teach methods of relaxation, help view situations in new ways, and help you to develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills. While I have years of experience treating anxiety, I also remain up to date on the most effective forms of treatment on obtaining the relief from anxiety that you desire and deserve.
