Are you wanting to heal from your past but feeling frozen by hurt and shame? Perhaps you keep trying to change but feel trapped by beliefs that you are not good enough, not loved. You’re trying to be a better partner, parent, and friend, and you keep giving to others, but get nothing in return. You feel alone, exhausted, and both desperate and terrified for someone to actually see you. A part of you wants to give up and shut yourself away, but another part keeps going each day. A part of you knows that there is more to life than this. A part of you has hope that things can be different, that you can be different.

I also provide family and parent support.
Children, adolescents and young adults sometimes experience stress related to school, activities, challenges at home, or periods of transition.

My role as a therapist is to help kids and young adults cope with stress and learn strategies to maintain an emotionally balanced life. I provide a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and then work with individuals and families to develop an individualized treatment plan that draws from the client's existing strengths. I utilize evidence-based treatment primarily drawing from CBT.

Grief can be isolating. You might be scared to feel the gravity of a loss, afraid you will fall apart. The pain is unavoidable, however, the suffering can be reduced by learning healthy ways to cope and build meaning. In addition to grief work, I enjoy working with adults struggling with anxiety/OCD as well as postpartum concerns. Being a parent is both wonderful and brutal. You are trying to survive adjusting to a totally new way of life. It can be challenging, but you are not alone. I will help you strategize to most effectively utilize your support system and walk with you as you navigate this period.
