My clients generally reach out for help when struggling with an adjustment, a loss, or a relationship that has problems. I most often see women, during pregnancy or postpartum, or at other times of crisis or difficulty during their lives. The relationship that I form with my clients is the most important aspect of the therapy, as it is the trust and emotional safety that is the foundation for the work we will do. It is within that therapeutic relationship that a deeper understanding of oneself and change can occur.
There are few joys greater than interpersonal freedom. Living unabashedly and authentically as you deserve and desire. This is our true heritage as humans. When we are barraged daily to find this freedom externally by our culture, (perhaps friends and family) and then osmotically transfer it inward we are left deeply lacking. It never works. The cost of freedom and to a higher level of awareness about ourselves is called work. W-O-R-K! The digging deep kind of work. Working to let go of anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, or whatever repeatedly binds us to a negative narrative from the past that no longer serves the present.

*****I am Not accepting New Clients at this time***** Life can be easier said than done! If you're reading this, you've already made the first courageous step to seek help. My overarching goal is to provide safety along the journey of healing and ultimately to you experiencing a fuller, more joyful life. Choosing to share your story can be difficult, but rewriting that story can alter the way you live, lead, and love. I've personally been in the trenches, and it's my passion to walk through the pain and beauty of life with others.
Do you ever wish others would put in half of the effort you put in into the relationship? Are you tired of initiating plans and not being reciprocated? Do you feel like you don’t have a voice or even feel you don’t know who you are anymore? People-pleasing behaviors may have kept us safe from conflicts and dangers but could have also costed us resentment, low self-esteem, anger, anxiety, and depression. What if we can learn to love ourselves the way we love others? What if self-love doesn’t mean we stop caring for others, but we start caring for ourselves the way we deserve to be?
Have you been feeling stuck in your life or relationship. Feeling like maybe things could be better? Do you experience shame with your body and sexuality? You might wish to overcome the stigmas associated with that shame and live a more empowered life full of joy and pleasure. Have you experienced trauma in and around your personal life and relationships?
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.
As James Baldwin said, "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." I cannot promise that everything will be better every time, every day, but I do believe that we are more than the problems we face and the labels assigned to us. I work with clients to reclaim ownership of their lives and become empowered to work toward the changes they seek. Sometimes, as we change, our ideas and our goals may shift, and our understanding of possible or impossible may be altered. I am here to help my clients explore themselves, their problems, their goals, and the challenges they face along the way.

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.

Sometimes we experience life changing events that cause us lose sight of our hopes and dreams. Our fears can deceive us into believing that we will never be okay again. We do not have to be defined by what has happened to us. I believe that no matter what we have been through we have the potential to create for ourselves, a happy, rich and full life worth living. It is not easy to overcome the bad experiences but it is possible. Therapy can increase psychological flexibility and allow us to not be open again. If you are tired of being limited and ready to make real changes therapy can help you create the life you wish to have.
Finding the right counselor may be one of the most important decisions you can make in seeking a better life. As my client, you will be provided a therapeutic relationship that is non-threatening, challenging, empowering, and ultimately life changing. You will find that your pain, which is actually healing trying to happen, will be lessened and most likely alleviated, your feelings and experiences are valid, and that you can make positive changes to improve your life and relationships. I'm a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and specialize in relationships - between couples, parents and children, friends - any human relationship
I believe that each person has inherent strengths to overcome life's challenges, and therapy can help you tap into these qualities. In addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, or strained relationships, I can help you identify your goals and work towards them, in a warm and accepting environment.
We are not meant to live life alone, but rather deeply involved in relationships. Some of these relationships are highly successful, while others have come with great loss, significant struggle or just the every day difficulty of learning to live and enjoy life with another person. I believe in the value of working through personal problems in the context of building stronger relationships. I will help you work through this on a personal level or with whomever you are needing to have a restored relationship with.
My specialty is mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy with an emphasis on trauma. I especially enjoy working with challenges faced by children, adolescents, and women including trauma, behavior difficulties, self-esteem, and life transitions. I also serves clients in the areas of grief and loss, parenting, depressive and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, stress, and domestic violence. I enjoy spending time with family, reading, and serving as President of Royal Divas, a women’s group I started with my sister that focuses on community service and mentoring young ladies.
"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.
As a clinical social worker I believe in meeting people where they are, exactly as they are. My goal is to create an environment that allows people to feel safe, supported, and heard. I work with a range of clients who experience general life stress, low self-esteem, anxious thoughts, depression, disordered eating or have been impacted by trauma. I welcome folks from diverse ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identification backgrounds.
