I believe that all humans have the capacity for growth, but that growth is often thwarted by a lack of self-compassion or self-confrontation. I aim to help clients nurture their deepest and most hidden wounds, to examine the motives driving their actions, and to access new levels of joy and fulfillment by honoring the best parts of themselves. I specialize in working with couples where the power is imbalanced between partners, often resulting in feelings of helplessness.

I love collaboratively working with a variety of clients but specialize in helping couples and individual adults. My hope is to help individuals develop into the person they desire to be rather than waiting for that moment to come to them. I desire to help partners who feel stuck and are willing to find a better alternative. Further, I enjoy working with motivated clients who want to know and share themselves more deeply and are open to taking risks in order to stretch themselves for personal growth.

Your family may be feeling like it is being turned upside down as your developing young adult struggles to find their place in the world. I work within the family system to re-establish the balance that is necessary for a healthy, growing family and find order within the chaos. Teens and young people may appear to be rebelling; fighting back against all of the families efforts to offer guidance and support. We can work together to turn this energy into a productivity and success in academic, social, and all other aspects of life.

Are you feeling stuck and don’t know what to do or where to go? Have all your old ways of coping stopped working? We all need support and guidance along our journey. Sometimes we need more than what our family and friends can provide. Everyone has the capacity to live a life full of joy, happiness and wholeness. When circumstances happen in your life that make this difficult to live, you may need some extra help. Together, you and I can find the right path to create the life you are meant to live.

Would you like to feel more connected and valued in your life and relationships? Together we can enter your world as you see it, including what you believe about yourself, both good and bad. Behaviors and emotions make sense when we see them clearly from the perspective of the person, given their history and the lessons they have learned. I enjoy meeting people who want more from their life and are willing to put in the work to get there. My goal is to provide a trusting environment where you, the client, can feel valued and free to share yourself without the worry of judgement.

Life is difficult, that is for sure. Therapy can be a great asset to individuals that are struggling in any number of ways. It can be such an eye opening experience to sit and talk with someone who has no vested interest in your life. If you are someone that is looking to understand the barriers in your life and make your overall wellbeing a priority, I would love to begin that journey with you.

Life, laughter, and love are important to living life wholeheartedly, but psychological pain can get in the way. Abuse in the context of a close relationship or a family can create the most pervasive and persistent psych-ache, and may be passed from generation to generation. Whether the source of pain is past trauma, worry about the future, or even current jobs or relationships, I am here to help! I often see clients whose trauma began in domestic abuse in the forms of emotional, psychological, physical, sexual, or financial abuses.

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Independence and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
