My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

Feeling overwhelmed, as if the weight of the world is constantly on your shoulders? Are you just moving day to day with no real direction or purpose? Do you think it’s too late to accomplish something in life? Do things you once loved no longer bring you happiness or peace? Feeling out of touch, no longer connecting well with those you love? Is life not what you thought it would be like at this moment in time? The reality is, life is sometimes hard & uncomfortable; it’s meant to be that way. However, sometimes the uncomfortable nature & hardness of life can be too much to bear on your own. If this is where you are, therapy may help.

I often work with people to manage issues in their lives that have become difficult and distressing, such as separation/divorce, career/job changes, grief/loss, relocation, becoming a parent, and retirement. Some clients experience symptoms of anxiety or depression and we focus on realistic, practical strategies to reduce their intensity and impact. My approach involves closely assessing how these issues impact daily life, how relationships are affected, what support has or hasn't been available and then develop a plan for working toward changes and greater satisfaction in life.

Is Therapy for you? Life is an incredible journey but is not without its challenges. While some of those experiences are beyond our control, many are the outcome of our choices. We can find ourselves in unfulfilling relationships, challenging times or lack luster careers. Our thoughts can take us to negative places where depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed may take control. Usually people seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing it alone. It's one of those things that we resist, convinced that we can work it out ourselves. Most of the times we do yet when we feel unhappy, therapy can help.
