For more than 20 years I’ve helped teens and adults navigate anxiety, depression, and trauma in healthy and productive ways. I bring an understanding of behavior, relationships, and adversity and how they can play out in negative ways in everyday life. I love working with couples to help them find a way to improve communication and strengthen their bond. Together we work towards moving forward together or kindly apart. I bring years of working with the LGBTQIA+community helping folks celebrate who they are while at the same time acknowledging the stress and unique family factors this amazing community deals with on a daily basis.

#1 belief is healing is not linear and that there is NO one size fits all therapy! I am extremely versed in traditional therapy that is data based, but believe that often practitioners miss the mark when it comes to looking at the client as whole/ not just numbers. My approach is holistic compassionate care, that offers clients a flexible way to heal and discover new nuggets of truth, in both traditional therapy and alternative ones. I have a particular passion for empowering woman in seeking their purpose and worth. I also have a deep love for working with children/teens that have difficulty navigating through the world/emotions.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

I skillfully and empathically align with such souls. I have decades of experience and proven approaches to empower individuals challenged with anxiety, depression, relationship struggles or existential fatigue resulting from being a highly sensitive or creative person who has lacked the necessary collaboration to gain greater self-understanding, expression, and actualization.

The season is changing and still nothing’s changed. Every morning is the same. The alarm goes off and you hit the snooze button over and over, before finally tumbling out of bed. Why? Because facing the day is drudgery. You get all the necessary tasks done, but without enthusiasm, connection, or joy. The panic and fear are just icing on the cake. That voice in your head tells you, “Don’t bother you’ll never measure up.” No one knows how hard it is to keep going. It doesn’t feel safe to tell them. Where did the voice come from? When did it start? Too long ago to remember. One thing’s for sure – nothing you’ve tried has worked.

I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.
