It is my belief that we all need a supportive ear to hear us and guide us. It is my goal as your therapist to create a safe environment for you to share your story. I will be there to meet you where you are at; whether that is to lead and encourage you, walk beside you, or congratulate you for your success.

I truly care about my clients and will provide a confidential, empathic, and non-judgmental environment. My ideal client might be in distress and simply in need of relief or someone who wants to investigate themselves and grow through the process. My ideal client might not be sure if therapy will help. I would try a variety of strategies to show you that it can. I have had challenges in life and I have received help from many people along the way. I believe that we should receive help when we need it and help others when we are able to do so. I look forward to collaborating in our work together!

I value every encounter with an individual. I am grateful to be in a field, as a Therapist, where I can enjoy divine connections daily - thanks to the incredible courage of people. Specifically, thanks to a “yes” to the journey of growth, healing, and one's readiness to get "unstuck." Although I believe that the therapy office is a place where much of an individual’s healing and recovery from life challenges takes place, I also understand that the real tests happen outside of those four walls. I want to help you to prepare for those tests, cope, build healthy relationships, and affirm yourself in the positive.

Individuals seek therapy for many issues. I have been afforded the opportunity to work alongside people that want help in managing Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem barriers and daily stress. Often times these issues are masked by deep rooted trauma, grief and abuse. Individuals need encouragement, support, feeling that they are heard and validation while on their journey to healing.

You deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning. I believe one of the bravest things you can do to achieve that is to understand your own story. Life is too short for our lives to be consumed by bad relationships, holding grudges, and letting trauma take over our lives. You deserve to be free from emotional pain as well as finding your purpose and meaning in your life. I will walk right next to you to help lift heavy weights and burdens from your shoulders. You do not have to walk this journey alone.

I utilize both EMDR and CBT/REBT to create a safe place to treat trauma or stressors ( like the current fear around the coronavirus), the impact of childhood trauma in adulthood, addiction, the impact of addiction on family , depression, panic/anxiety, personality disorders, vicarious trauma.
My clients come to me when they are tired of living in emotional pain.  This pain may have lead them to not like themselves, feel alone, and worried and depressed.  They may feel like they have no control or have lost the control that they used to have.  They feel stuck or like they don't belong.  My clients leave with a sense of freedom and empowerment. They understand their value/worth and like themselves. They feel like they are ready to choose what comes next in life. They have hope. Clients have told me "I feel safe now", "I never knew I could feel this good", "I actually like myself now. I didn't know I could".

I usually see clients who are going through a transition in their lives. This is often a time when they feel some anxiety about making a major decision and they benefit by having someone with whom they can discuss options and goals in a supportive environment. Although I see adults of all ages, I specialize in working with older adults as their transitions tend to be complicated by issues related to their health. I'm also available to support and advise their family members and caregivers.

Couples with young kiddo are particularly at risk for marriage and family strife because they are so busy, and because there is so much that is new to their brains, emotions and relationship. Figuring out how to be both mom and dad as well as husband and wife is often overwhelming and troubling. Tension builds when the relationship energy gets split between kiddos needs (and there are a lot of them!) and marriage needs (and those are valid as well). The energy to figure out how to integrate all those needs, wants, wishes becomes divided and divisive. Disconnected and discontent brew and relationship trouble stews. What to do?

I am eager to meet you and ready to help you, your child, or your family , make the next step towards change.
In my practice, I recognize that as people we have many different emotions and experiences that drive us. Sometimes we do not understand what we are feeling, why we are feeling it, and why we are responding the way that we are. That is why I am passionate about helping my clients create a better understanding of themselves that creates a positive change to bring healing.

I am passionate about helping those with relationship issues, depression and anxiety, identity issues, life transitions, divorce recovery and remarriage, blended family issues, and trauma.
Where are you stuck? Perhaps you keep having the same arguments over and over with your partner, can't stop that critical voice in your head, are troubled by your responses to others, or are bogged down with feelings of depression or anxiety. Whatever it is, you want to understand it and move on. My aim is to help you clarify your goals, discover the root causes of your feelings and symptoms, help you find awareness of faulty beliefs, and create a plan for change in a warm and caring environment.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
