I enjoy helping people face obstacles in their lives and look at opportunities. I focus on assisting clients to develop their own individual action plan. Together we focus on solutions to reaching their goals. I believe it is important to meet your client where they are, and work from there. Everyone moves at their own pace, but people only change as they feel safe. It is very difficult to let go of old problematic behaviors until you have developed new constructive alternative behaviors. Developing your individual toolbox of coping strategies is a challenge all people face. We all have our own issues, they're just different.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, frustrated or sad? I understand how tough that can be. After a 23-year marketing career, I made a mid-life career change; deciding what I really felt called to do was helping people with their most significant life challenges. I am ready to assist individuals, couples or families with issues including: stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse and relationship challenges. I am particularly interested in helping people through life transition challenges including: divorce, marriage, job loss, death of a loved one, chronic illness, or challenges related to aging.
"Growth is painful, change is painful, but nothing is as painful as being stuck somewhere you don't belong." Life is a journey and oftentimes along our journey we go through difficult life transitions that can feel impossible to overcome. We may go through feelings of being stuck in the same emotional states, unhealthy relationships or communication patterns that leave us feeling empty and yearning for change. When our lives begin feeling this way, finding a positive support can be crucial in navigating these changes we need to feel better.

My passion is helping others get where they want to be in life and to make the process of getting there as much fun and enjoyable as possible. My ideal client is someone who is ready to take a serious and honest look at themselves for the purpose of becoming the person they were intended to be.
Are you overwhelmed with anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, feel stuck or burnt-out, struggling with relationship issues, or feel confused about your purpose? While these feelings are part of being human, they can sometimes overwhelm us and affect our ability to thrive. We all need support and guidance to move through pain, and to learn tools that can help us move through challenges with more ease and grace. Change can be scary, but change is also potential for growth. I can provide a safe, calm, and non-judgmental environment that supports your healing.
I offer effective, short-term, professional counseling for individuals who are ready to make changes in their lives. Clients learn how to effectively cope with their issues so they can live with intention, purpose, and personal meaning. I help you set goals and realistic measures of progress toward goals, while boosting your motivation to keep going. We also examine any barriers to achieving goals and develop strategies to remove them or minimize their effects.

What to do with a difficult child, or with a teen whose behaviors pose real problems. How to keep a job, change one, or stay in school. What to do when identity is unclear, hope is lost, or in a crisis of faith. How to see with a partner a way of love and care. How to act in wisdom. When in need of relief from anxieties or pressures feeling too much to bear, one takes a brave and important step reaching out for qualified help. Working with a mental health professional, one can find integrity and meaning in the midst of pain. One can find healing and hopefulness for facing challenges. One can better understand their life.

I am a licensed psychologist with over a decade of experience in public schools as a school psychologist. I have extensive experience with conducting developmental and psychological evaluations to assess the psychological and learning needs of students, developing IEPs and behavior intervention plans, assisting families and students as they navigate the special education process, and providing therapy for children and teens. I provide individual evaluations for children and adolescents to assess for ADHD, autism, giftedness, intellectual delays, developmental delays, and other emotional-behavioral concerns.
Everyone needs help from time to time. Are you experiencing a dark time at work, at home, or personally? Counseling is a way to find the problem, fix it and feel good about yourself again! I work with clients who find that cognitive/behavioral therapy helps them discover their strengths, develop successful coping strategies, effective problem-solving skills, and find hope again. If you are struggling with depression (or other mood disorders), anxiety, adjustment issues, personality disorders, bereavement issues, or serious mental illness - hope is alive!
I help survivors overcome past traumas in order to help them begin to heal. I started my career working in the world of non-profit mental health. It was during this time that I realized that we in the mental health community were often treating the wrong thing, our clients tended to be struggling with Trauma more than anything, but we’d be focused on substance use, depression, and anxiety. This would lead to stagnation, due to the real issues not being addressed. Due to this I focus on the treatment of core issues. I focus on what is holding someone back, and not just the symptoms that are caused by these bigger problems.
I've been assisting individuals, couples and families for over 20 years in achieving greater self awareness and a clearer vision and path for healthy living. My goal is to help clients overcome or better manage life's obstacles, resolve conflicts and improve relationships.
