Hello and welcome. For over 20 years I have had the honor of working with individuals from diverse backgrounds on issues that are impacting their lives. I approach treatment through a collaborative framework, recognizing that you are the expert of your life experience, and that my role is to accompany you through insightful exploration to help increase self awareness, reach your goals, and bring about lasting change. While I take my work seriously, I believe that incorporating humor and being authentic is integral to building a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship.

Are you seeking a socially just, nonjudgmental space, welcoming of, and open to all genders, cultures and backgrounds? Would you like to be met at where you are currently at in your life, and where every part of you is accepted and valued? Therapy can be a unknown/scary commitment to talk to a stranger about your personal story. I strive to be authentic, someone with whom clients feel comfortable enough with to be open and self-revealing, and feel understood. My desire is to provide a space where you feel you can explore issues that matter to you, strengthen your resilience, and gain perspective.

I am passionate about helping my clients create positive change in their lives. In my career, I have helped women from all walks of life who struggle with depression, anxiety, symptoms related to traumatic experiences, self-esteem issues and biologically based mental illness. Even though their stories and lived experiences varied, each sought support because they wanted to feel better, decrease their sense of isolation and increase positive coping skills. I love to help women discover their inner strengths, increase their feelings of personal safety, deepen their sense of agency and reclaim ownership of their lives.

**I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME*** I believe therapy is a place for self-exploration and building awareness of what is holding you back from leading a more fulfilling life. Whether you have suffered a recent loss or trauma, are suffering with painful emotions or having trouble coping with a life transition, therapy is a place to be heard and supported as you navigate the difficult path towards healing. I utilize an integrative approach to therapy, pulling predominately from relational and interpersonal theories, while incorporating motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral interventions when appropriate.

Today’s world is defined by opportunities and challenges that didn’t exist for our parents. The changing ways in which we approach identity, relationships, work, leisure, and education – the core of emotional and psychological fulfillment – can be as bewildering as they are exciting. Becoming the truest and best version of ourselves can be an elusive task in this ever-shifting and often judgemental, invalidating landscape. It’s no wonder all of us need help in one way or another.

I help individuals, couples, and families break their negative cycles and start creating positive change. During these difficult times, I have found myself working more and more with couples to strengthen their relationship, provide marriage counseling, and help them improve their overall communication. Many of these couples have felt a loss of love, like, and lust in their marriage and they just want to reconnect with each other. Most of us were never taught how to be in a loving and committed relationship. It's time to change that.
