"Learning, Healing, Growing" is my goal for your journey in life. I work from a Cognitive Behavorial Therapy system and take a mindfulness approach. I believe that our daily activities are based on our thinking processes. I like to teach hollistic approaches to dealing with life issues (deep breathing, mindfulness, meditation, etc.) and incorporating positive thinking into sessions. This works with many life issues: depression, stress/anxiety, emotional issues, grief, relationship issues, etc. I have experience with couples, helping to find communication errors and helping to relieve some of the issues that cause the space between two people grow larger.

Experiencing painful feelings or distress in a relationship, work, in life, perhaps along with low mood or too much tension? I am interested in your story. It is natural to feel overwhelmed at times and it is not a sign of weak character to seek help. In a safe environment, as we explore the internal conflicts and patterns that get in the way of living fully, healing and change can result. Insight can also emerge from actions taken in life - what it is that you do and how you do it - and this is also explored in therapy.

I believe all people generally have the resources to help themselves, yet sometimes simply need a safe, trustworthy professional to help work through issues, identify goals, make healthy decisions and take steps necessary to live life more fully. I use an integrative approach that draws largely from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solutions-focused and cognitive behavioral theories. I recognize and respect the fact that individuals have widely varying perspectives and needs. Lastly, I am fully virtual and offer either phone or video sessions.

My favorite phrase to hear from someone is “wow, I never thought of it that way before.” I believe that seeking help for oneself is a sign of strength, wisdom and inner guidance. You’re the person who knows that you want and deserve some level of transformation and by reaching out, you are saying that you are ready to take the journey. It has been my pleasure to work with individuals and programs which encourage, support and help to guide people on this journey for 30 years.

I help people who are feeling depressed, feel less depressed. I understand how uncomfortable it can be to feel stuck in depression. Are you having trouble sleeping, eating too little, or too much? Hiding how you really feel inside, not wanting others to know? Others say you have so much to be thankful for, but you just feel guilty and ashamed that you’re not able to feel that way; forcing a smile, but not feeling it inside? There is always a reason for the way we feel, and I can help you figure out what is really going on inside of you. Together we can figure out some ways to help you feel relief.

Welcome! I specialize in working with parents in the perinatal period and families with young children. I often hear similar questions, whose needs do I attend to first? Is this behavior from my child typical or something more concerning? Should I talk about the trauma with my child or could that make it worse? Am I doing this parenting thing right? Parenting is incredibly hard and truthfully, there is no single right way to parent. But you don’t have to sit with those thoughts or questions alone; together we can explore the patterns and experiences of your family, ask questions, and identify what you value most as a parent.
