"**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I believe wellness is an ongoing journey that is complicated, scary, exciting, and has no specific road. In fact, I believe wellness is a journey that has unexpected twists and turns, where we encounter moments of growth, regression, or stalling. My hope is to join you in those tougher moments, and give you the space to set down all the heavy baggage you might be carrying and work with you to unpack what is weighing you down. I bring my genuine, quirky self to therapy and believe that as tough as it can be, there is plenty of space reserved for laughs and celebration."

"How often have we heard? Boy meets girl. They soon realize they love each other, get married, and live happily ever after. But does that really happen? How long before boy and girl start fighting and end up divorced? Is there hope for 'happily ever after' after all the fights, tears, and fears? Yes. Marriage is hard work and most couples struggle day in and out to stay together. You don't have to do it alone. I specialize in helping couples re-capture that love and friendship that brought them together so they can have true happy ever afters."

"You deserve to find clarity, healing, and growth. You deserve to be seen and heard when you are struggling. Sometimes, we all need a little help on our path to feeling better and creating the life that we want. Healing is a collaborative process; my role is to help you recognize and shift out of patterns that stagnate your growth and keep you from harnessing your potential in the present moment. In sessions, we explore internally and externally; getting to know ourselves more deeply so we can more effectively cultivate that we want in life. "

""It's never to late to have a happy childhood" This quote embodies the core belief and hope that I bring into my practice. Most people bring wounds from childhood into their adulthood. These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive."

I believe clients are doing the best they can so counseling should be educational, empowering and at times even fun to achieve their goals.
