As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I often work with clients who are suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, life transitions, esteem issues, and relationship difficulties. I take a collaborative and relational approach to counseling. I can offer a warm and safe space for exploration and growth. The populations I am best suited to work with are individuals who are motivated toward healthier intrapersonal development, clients interested in creating stronger interpersonal connections, as well as women in destructive relationships.

Life has many challenges that we struggle with, many coming internally from our own minds. I can help navigate you through your journey to overcome intrusive, negative self-talk, low self-esteem and self-worth, trauma, and to assist with changing that inner voice that tells you, “you have to be perfect.” Using art therapy as well as CBT techniques, I work with students and professionals who are struggling with identity, life transitions, depression, and anxiety. Together we can work together to gain insight, develop coping skills and mindfulness techniques, defeat the negative self-talk, and create a life worth living.

Sad, Worried, and Stubborn Teenagers; Rocky Relationships; Worried Parents; and Stressed Individuals. These are the people I help. You probably already know what the problem is and what you don’t want anymore. You don’t want to be sad, you don’t want to be in this rut, or you're tired of arguing with your teenager or spouse about the same things over and over. Trying to solve it yourself can be like trying to eat a huge pizza that hasn’t been cut into slices-- it's overwhelming and you don’t know where to start. My job is to help you break the solution into pieces so you can decide where to start and what your next steps are.

You may not consider or believe that your life experiences include trauma. You might think, “Doesn’t everyone feel like this? This is just life, right?!” The answer is no! You don’t have to carry this yuck around with you anymore. You can have less inner conflict, better decision making, and enhanced self-control. Change is possible with EMDR therapy.

Trying to save a relationship before it's too late? Is your teenager struggling with depression, anxiety, or making healthy decisions? Want a counselor who helps you decide what to do next instead of telling you what you're doing wrong? Maybe you're just tired of your current situation but not quite sure what to do to change it? I don't dwell on your past so I can explain how your parents screwed you up. I help you develop a clear idea of what changes you want and how to make those changes happen.

At times, life can feel overwhelming. One of the ways I work with people is learning to stay present and increasing your self-awareness. This skill can grant us an incredible power to own our experiences and the ability to write our own story–no matter what has happened in our life. Research shows that to change the way you feel, you must first learn to become more familiar with and accept your inner experience. When we learn to listen to our bodies and thoughts with intention, there is no limit to your potential. "Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts." -Bessel Van der Kolk
