You're smart, successful, & overall doing well in life, but life doesn't feel as good as you want it to. You're not sure what exactly you're missing that stops you from feeling better, but you're tired of living this way & motivated to change it. Wouldn't it be nice to go through a whole day without becoming overwhelmed by your thoughts, or engaging in unhealthy patterns like avoidance & self-criticism? Life doesn't have to be this way, therapy can help. Client's often express feeling content, & more fulfilled by life at the end of treatment.

I offer compassionate treatment for people who need assistance in overcoming the effects of negative life experiences & unhealthy thinking. I help clients improve their quality of life by developing coping skills, processing their thoughts, feelings & experiences, while empowering them to set healthy boundaries.

Clients often tell me I'm "not like other therapists"... Blunt, funny, involved, & expressive. I like to use these skills, all while combining solid professional knowledge with personal experience in supporting people find their inner gifts. Joining in therapy is Russell, my Standard Poodle, who loves to offer a cuddle. My passion is serving first responders, and I am currently only taking new clients who are working in the capacity of a first responder role.
