About

"I knew it would be hard, but why does everyone else seem to be handling it better than me?" "I'm doing it right, but I don't feel like enough." I get it! This period in life is different and difficult. Life transitions, like going off to college, living on your own, parenting, marriage, adulting, and divorce are all fraught with self-doubt and judgments.
Some clients simply seek clarity and support with a specific transition causing a disruption in their lives. Others seek to uncover patterns of behavior that have been preventing them from living the lives they desire or having the relationships they find most fulfilling. I'm here to listen and help you through it.
I have over a decade of experience providing therapy to individuals, groups and couples. I specialize in assessment for Emotional Support Animal(s), utilizing The Daring Way™ with adults and teens, and EMDR treatment of attachment injuries and trauma. Doctoral student, Jenna, will be helping uninsured & low income clients starting Summer 2021.
