About

**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS**Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't. Taking the first step to reach out to a therapist is no easy task and I want to help you recognize that you're doing something big by just looking at my profile to consider if we might be a good fit. Some areas that I'm especially passionate about are supporting those with loved ones with addictions, parents of children with special needs and those going through life transitions such as relationship changes, career changes and blended families.
​I offer individual sessions and start by exploring goals for our work together and identifying what has and has not worked for you in the past. I enjoy helping parents navigating the special education process and am passionate about helping people to advocate for themselves and their family members.
Often times I hear from clients that they have never been comfortable enough to share certain things with a therapist. I strive to build a therapeutic relationship where you feel that you are being heard, where I can advocate for and with you and your family; and where you look forward to our sessions as a way to take care of yourself in a safe place.
