In my occupation as a social worker and therapist, I am passionate about seeing individuals step into living a healthy, whole life and finding how client and therapist can journey in this together. My experiences in life have prepared me to work with individuals as an empathetic listener. I strive to deliver individualized, high quality, evidence-based treatment. My treatment approach is personal and integrative, in that I may integrate complementary interventions in thoughtful and intentional ways to help you make sustainable changes that will help you reach your goals.
Ever have one of those days/weeks as a parent? Are some days more of a struggle than others with your children? Are some days just a struggle with your own life? Are you sad, anxious, and just plain weary? Please know you are not alone and I would love to talk with you.
I have a heart for helping people and walking alongside them in their journey of healing. Life can bring unexpected pain and suffering. Often times you can feel lost and confused with no one to turn to. Counseling is a beautiful way to seek help from someone who will guide you through the littlest to most difficult times in your life. Everyone can benefit from talking to someone who is not a family member or friend. Someone who will truly hear your needs and unconditionally support you. I am here for you! Please Call Today!

I am nurturing, yet direct in my approach and see working towards tangible change as important. Therapy in my office is always client led coupled with some therapist guided cognitive changes to approaching problems and setting concrete goals. I come with 20 years of clinical experience working with individuals, families as well as with couples and groups. My experience has stemmed from a variety of settings including domestic violence shelters, psychiatric units, juvenile detention centers, college campuses and private practice.
When working with clients, I stand by the phrase, "whatever the client brings, I will work with". Whatever issue or concern that is presented to me, I will help meet the needs to the best of my ability. In terms of specialty, I am primarily focused on relationship issues, which consists of couples work, sex issues, infidelity, adjustment issues, and so on.

Experiencing an emotional or personal issue that is restricting your ability to enjoy life? I help clients work on those things that are getting in the way, such as, problematic emotional, behavioral or relational patterns, stress, and symptoms of depression and anxiety. Life is really hard at times and it can help to have some extra support, especially, if you are feeling alone, isolated or finding that others don't really understand. NOTE: I am now offering tele-therapy over video as an option for therapy.
