I work with anxiety, depression, grief , trauma, perinatal mood/anxiety issues, parent/child attachment issues, substance abuse, adolescent and midlife transitions, I provide a safe space to do the work together.
Most often the goal coming into therapy is to find relief and decrease symptoms. Some may come to gain skills to get through challenging life situations and transitions. The skills learned in therapy can be applied for you to use throughout your life and will support long term positive change. The change occurs as we become aware of our life story and the patterns that unfold. In this process we gain more awareness and understanding of the self in relation to others. It is my passion to walk alongside you on the path of self-discovery as your story unfolds and you gain personal meaning.

Are you going through a significant life event or change? Or are you ready to work through past distressing memories or traumatic events? Embarking on the therapeutic journey takes courage, as well as finding the right therapist. I specialize in helping those going through significant life events and discernment, individuals who experience depression, anxiety, grief , PTSD, as well as those who identify as LGBTQIA. I prefer to view therapeutic foci through an Adaptive Information Processing Model, rather than through a pathological lens. So many presenting symptoms are actually trauma-related, and that is where healing can start.

I have over 12 years of experience working with a range of issues, including grief , loss , trauma, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and anxiety.
It takes real courage for you to be here. Perhaps, you feel like you're stuck and you don't know what else to do. You keep trying to fix things on your own, but they aren't getting any better. Experiencing personal struggles, relationship difficulties, life changes, or significant trauma can change who we are and how we see the world. We later feel anxiety, pain, sorrow, fear, self-doubt, guilt, or shame.

Grief and loss are heavy, especially if you feel you’re the person everyone needs to be strong.
I'm glad you are looking for support. As a social worker for over 30 years, I’ve witnessed the difficulty we experience as vulnerable patients and loving caregivers. A cancer survivor myself, I’ve felt the physical effects of that particular disease and its treatments and I have also seen firsthand how my illness affected the people around me. Being a patient has stressors that can result in fear, frustration, and feeling betrayed by your own body. Providing care right now is overwhelming for so many caregivers. The changes and losses most of us have experienced in the last two years have tested our capacity in unimaginable ways.
