I provide a compassionate, judgment-free space for clients seeking support for problems of anxiety, depression, stress, trauma (including sexual abuse ), and who want help navigating relationships.
I believe each of us deserves support on this winding and unpredictable journey of life. How we take care of our mental health impacts every aspect of our lives--our relationships, our work, our creative output, and more. At the same time, it can take a lot of courage to take a step forward to do this work. Maybe you’re ready to face past experiences of trauma or loss. Maybe you want to redefine your relationship with yourself--body, mind, spirit. Or maybe you see a pattern in the way you show up in relationships with others and you want to make a change.

While supporting individuals as they face codependency and/or addiction issues, sexual abuse and other types of distress, I find it valuable to look back at earlier losses for what might still be lingering, perhaps contributing to pain in one's life today.
I work with those who are courageously facing pain and trauma in their lives. Perhaps you wonder if you can look at your own experiences... Maybe you fear being overwhelmed if you dare look. You may be thinking anxiety will overwhelm you. It need not be this way. Allow me to journey with you as you explore the questions tugging at you. You need not face them alone. Support is here; it is real. You CAN face these challenges, and you need not face them alone in the silence of your heart. Reach out now for the support you deserve.

Sometimes it seems like noone knows you. Your family and friends think highly of you, but you feel sure that’s only because you’ve fooled them. Deep down you feel like there is something wrong with you, and no amount of “doing the right thing” can change that. You’ve spent most of your life between procrastination and perfection, but the relief you used to get from success and admiration isn’t calming the anxiety like it used to. And after a lifetime of trying to fix your broken family, you are starting to realize your childhood wasn’t normal. It was really tough—and with that realization comes a lot of pain.

Accepting new daytime clients as of June 2022. - If you are like me, you have procrastinated this decision to seek counseling for some time, and you are steadily nearing desperation. Entering into therapy is difficult - it is important to find a therapist with whom you connect. I provide a free phone consultation and a half price first session, so we can decide if we are a good fit. I work best with clients who are motivated to begin the explorative process towards healing. I seek to honor the vulnerability required to make changes in one's life by listening without judgment and growing to understand the individual's experiences.

The choice to enter into your story is admirable. Examining past wounds and current patterns is brave and risky. I count it a privilege to partner with clients as we work toward health and freedom. You can expect a safe and compassionate space to engage your pain, fears, passion, desires and self. I collaborate with clients to address areas of struggle, need and strength.

Do you feel like life has been just one distressing experience after another? I work with people who experienced abuse in their childhood or early life and continued to have stressful lives as they moved into adulthood. Often, they feel confused and afraid of their experiences and feel overwhelmed by day-to-day life. They may wonder if they are 'crazy' or broken, and may feel they have lost hope that anything will change. My clients often want to learn ways to cope with their stress more effectively, and feel less alone and confused. They may wish to have better relationships, fewer flashbacks, or less lost time.
