I also strive to support those with chronic illness and individuals navigating life transitions.
Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like you no longer recognize yourself? Have depression, anxiety, illness, or life stressors made it difficult to be true to yourself or live an authentic life? Through therapy, you can learn to break free of patterns that are keeping you stuck. You will learn to ride the waves of change that are an inevitable part of life. You will build your ability to recognize what can and cannot be changed, and learn to sit with difficult emotions. You will develop the skill to respond skillfully when life does not go according to plan, and will gain the confidence to create a life built around your values.

I work with people dealing with chronic illness and their caregivers as they struggle from day to day with the worry of what may happen to them and their love ones.
I learn through experience, finding a counselor who can relate to what you are dealing with is important in changing your perspective and developing manners of coping. My calling is to assist those who are struggling with feelings of stress and/or depression due to their health, responsibilities, or experiences. My goal is to help you discover a new perspective of your life, to make you stronger and ready, so life can move forward with a clearer positive meaning.

Everyone deserves that - including YOU! Let's been honest - having anxiety or a chronic illness can be scary, but it doesn't mean you don't get to have fun or meaning to life! Joy is not out of your reach.
Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with an illness for a while, you’ve been trying to hold on and find a way to live the best you can. Every day is a battle because your body feels sick from aches, pains or other symptoms. You even brace yourself for the worst to happen, because that’s unfortunately been your “new norm.” You miss being your old self - the one that could “do more things." Now, you feel like a failure in many areas of your life. The smile you wear covers what you really feel – alone, worried, sad and angry. All of this has taken a toll on you emotionally and you want to feel more in control of it.

Life is messy and difficult. Sometimes you experience deep pain. But you never have to struggle alone. Maybe your life has been turned upside down by loss, a change in your family, or chronic illness . Maybe the life you're living isn't the life you pictured. You're exhausted, depressed, stuck. You want more - more connection, meaning, hope, and purpose. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I am trained to help individuals, couples and families work through the sources of their struggles and to develop healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

A chronic illness , life-altering injury, or significant loss can challenge the development and psychosocial well-being of a child and cause lasting trauma if not appropriately and intentionally addressed. With my support and guidance, children and families practice coping techniques to navigate their "new normal," engage in legacy-building and memory-making activities to facilitate healthy grief responses, learn about their diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment through medical play and education, and feel empowered to advocate for themselves in stressful medical situations.

Human interaction is powerful - and we often are unaware of the impact of our experiences until we speak them aloud to an understanding ear. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, affirming space so that we can explore issues and address problems together, working from your perspective. I work with adults and adolescents who have experienced grief and bereavement, childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, chronic illness , identity-based discrimination and life transitions - as well as those who are caregivers, exploring gender and/or sexuality, or are having difficulty at work. I am also trained in EMDR.

Especially when finding the words or speaking is difficult or painful music can help heal our emotions

We can't always control what life brings our way, but we can choose how we respond to it. I enjoy helping people reconnect with their natural wisdom in the midst of life's challenges. My goal is to help my clients gain awareness of what is already working in their lives and what patterns and habits have become outdated or self-defeating. A situation, problem or symptom that appears unworkable or overwhelming can offer the key to its own healing when held with gentle, inquisitive attention.

How are you coping w/these challenging & unprecedented times? Whatever our normal coping strategies were, particularly if not the healthiest to begin with, they are likely to be even more present than ever before. Fear, dread, loneliness, isolation, frustration, & anger...all ingredients for us to eat more, drink more, use more, check out more, fight more, etc.. Please-there is no shame in asking for help during this pandemic (or ever, really). There are many great clinicians on PT-literally, someone for everyone. I hope that you find someone who fits YOU during this troubling time, &, if you think that might be me, pls reach out!

“The most important step a [person] can take. It’s not the first one, is it? It’s the next one. Always the next step.” – Brandon Sanderson // If you are stressed, anxious, depressed, or just struggling with the world around you, take the next step. If you're looking for practical support to help you live a more fulfilling life, take the next step. If you're feeling lost, therapy is like a GPS: You choose the destination and select the route. I provide guidance, make occasional suggestions, and keep you on course to get where you want to go. Ultimately, you need to drive the car. And don’t worry, you get to choose the playlist, too.
