Feeling stuck, chaotic, overwhelmed, purposeless, anxious? Do you ever find yourself doing the same things over and over wishing you would have a different outcome? Do you feel consumed by your thoughts? Do you feel like you and your partner just don’t get each other? Often time asking for help and finding help is overwhelming. You want to make a change, make things better, but you don’t know how. You want to feel like you again - not to just keep surviving, but start living intentionally and passionately. You want the anxiety, the intrusive thoughts and the sleepless nights to end - to be present with yourself and your loved ones.

Stuck. Trapped. Controlling. Anxious. Over it. Apathetic. Do you find yourself resonating with these words? Maybe you feel yourself enraged at little things your partner or kids do, and then hating yourself after you snap. Perhaps you used to get excited about a weekend brunch, meeting a friend for a coffee, or strolling Target alone - but now you only feel apathetic and empty. What if you could find your spark again? Does that sound possible? Maybe going back to where you used to be isn’t even your goal: maybe your goal is the ability to be present, without nagging anxieties and crippling depression. Either way, therapy can help.

I long to walk alongside women and couples as they pursue healing and growth in their lives.
Life is a journey full of ups and downs, twists and turns, dry valleys, and scenic mountaintops. At times, it can be difficult to navigate. We may resist going in a direction that feels unknown because it is uncomfortable to do things we've never done before; however, it is in the places of discomfort that we can create the most growth and discover our most authentic selves. Maybe you feel stuck, hurt, or abandoned. Maybe you feel stressed, alone, or tired. Maybe you feel disconnected from yourself or the people in your life. No matter where you find yourself on your journey, there is hope.

I specialize in working with individuals, couples , and families.
It's hard to find a therapist. Especially when you're not feeling your best. I applaud you for getting this far. Now it's time to invest in your relationship with yourself. I know what it’s like to feel alone with your problems. Maybe you have no one to talk to. Or maybe you feel bad making your friends, your family, or your partner listen to your problems again. I know what that feels like, and I’m here. I’m ready to listen. It’s time to let go of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. I want to process these things with you. You don’t have to go through this alone anymore.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples who live life a little differently.
Woah, stop for a second. Are you searching for a therapist? That’s a big step. Take your time. Give yourself some credit for being willing to face what’s got you feeling stuck. If you’re looking for someone unafraid of facing it with you, I might be your person. I’m informed by many therapies (like emotion-focused, IFS, and collaborative) but authenticity is always guiding my work. I believe in my clients. And I know that you can feel better if you’re given the right environment. What might that look like? Let’s figure it out together.

I primarily work with both individuals and couples who are ready for change.
Do you spend all of your energy focusing on other people's feelings or opinions that it feels impossible to consider your own feelings and needs? Is your goal to make sure everyone else is happy even if it means there's no time or space for you? Maybe the weight of people's expectations is heavy and exhausting, so exhausting it’s impacting your relationships with your partner , family, & yourself. It’s your turn. So many parts of you have been working hard for so long. Together, we can begin working towards experiencing yourself and your relationships as life-giving and authentic instead of draining. You deserve this.

I have experience working with clients struggling with addiction, those grieving the loss of a loved one, couples navigating relationships, individuals, pre-marital couples , families with older adolescents and adult children, and adults facing difficult life decisions.
Wounds often shape our life's choices without our knowledge of their presence. Life is hard and these wounds can wear on us over time. Are you unsure if you're struggling with an addiction and you feel like your substance may be wreaking havoc on your life and your relationships? It takes courage to ask for help. I can meet you where you are and we can explore this together in an environment that is free of shame and judgement. Successful therapy involves a collaborative relationship where clients risk to uncover wounds and challenge unhelpful family structures.

Find what you truly seek. You've spent enough time searching. Let's get you out of this place. You see the traps you keep falling into, the ones you can’t make it through alone. You know better but need help to get there. Find liberation from your bad habits. Caring so much about meaningless thoughts, tangling yourself in webs of superficiality, losing yourself to old coping mechanisms. Be done with all of it. Let’s do something about those familiar grooves you get stuck in. I work with clients who can see their patterns and behaviors and know there’s a better way. You wanting to change and grow is the key ingredient.

I provide a specialty therapy for people with a high degree of self-control (perfectionists, introverts, worriers, and the notably stubborn). Can you have too much of a good thing? It turns out possessing too much self-control impairs our ability to relax, adapt to change, and connect to others. Humans have a fundamental need for fun and belonging, without it, we’re naturally depressed and anxious.

I want you to know what it’s like to live a life of healing. If you feel like you are drowning, overwhelmed, exhausted, or resentful - I can help. Together we will roll up our sleeves and get to work. It will get a little messy, but I’m not scared of the mess. I will support you while you learn to love the things you have previously hidden. Your pain, your thoughts, and your behaviors can all make sense when we explore them with kind curiosity. It is time to take off the shackles of your past, and live tomorrow more free than you were yesterday.

"Be the best of what humanity has to offer".I love being a therapist and this quote inspires me as a person and in my craft. My ideal client understands that therapy is hard work and is intent on finding joy despite difficult circumstances and past childhood pain. As a therapist, I enjoy working with clients who value being challenged. I enjoy working with those individuals and families that need treatment for addictions, ADHD, marital difficulties and spiritual concerns.

Counseling provides an opportunity for people to explore areas of their lives and relationships that may feel dissatisfying, difficult, or even painful. It takes courage for us to look at parts of ourselves and our relationships that are troubling, especially when we're not sure exactly where to begin or what's not feeling quite right. Therapy is a journey, a path toward developing a connection to our own deepest knowing and inner strengths. With increased awareness and internal supports, we feel more hope, strength and freedom to live as fully as possible.
