It's my passion to help develop and grow the "Self" in others so that well-being is possible and goals become reachable. Often times our life experiences, thoughts, nervous system, and emotions get in the way of our growth or feeling good by impacting us with anchors like anxiety, depression, trauma, relational difficulty, and low "Self" esteem/worth - all of which - brings along with it repeated experiences of feeling bad, nervous, alone, stuck, sad, hopeless, worthless, angry, and an array of other roadblocks - It's a painful loop. We'll put an end to that so relief or even freedom comes and inner transformation can resume.

My clients tend to be women who are growth-oriented and aware of a deep desire to bring more of themselves to life. They seek a sense of purpose, joy, self-acceptance, and connection to something bigger (whether they call it God, Higher Self, the Universe, Consciousness or something else). Many have, through early programming, religious indoctrination, and/or systemic or birth trauma, taken on patterns of low self-worth, self-sabotage and self-criticism. These patterns can manifest as eating disorders, body dysmorphia, a failure to thrive, perfectionism, challenges with boundaries, intimacy, sexuality and with parenting.

“An abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation is normal behavior”--Victor Frankl. How you respond to traumatic or difficult events is your “normal” and that's OK. Reaching out for support is a sign of your inner strength and wisdom. Our work will be framed from humanistic and existential perspectives. Meaning, I believe all people have the potential to heal, grow, and thrive. You can get relief from the hurt and sadness of trauma and adversity. Counseling builds on strengths you already have as we foster your ability to identify what is getting in the way, gain new insight, cope, and make changes.

***Teletherapy Only*** "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." Zora Neale Hurston wrote these words and this reflects the heart of my practice. Each of us has a story that we tell ourselves and others about our lives. Sometimes the story we tell is a contamination story and sometimes it is a redemption story. I believe that we all have the ability to examine the experiences of our lives and shape the narrative to uncover and maximize meaning. When our lives feel meaningful we are more empowered to make choices that serve us best.

Are you overwhelmed and looking for answers, but just don't know where to begin? Every individual has a story; so do families and communities. As we compile these accounts, we realize that the fragments form a collage; not the entire picture, but pieces which symbolize the possibility for a whole. Therapy can be a safe space for exploring and integrating the past in an effort to become more present. You are the expert in your own life experiences and I can be your partner in honoring that narrative.

I work with couples, adults, kids, and families dealing with disruptive events, situations, and behaviors. Some of these situations are typical life transitions: entering adolescence, a new child in the family, school and work conflicts, or life-stage changes. Other transitions are more obviously traumatic: medical crises, chronic illness, infidelity, or the dissolution of long-term relationships. I work with patients that have long-term, debilitating mental illnesses, and patients that have more situational or transitional difficulties. I welcome clients who are struggling with parenting plan issues and post-divorce conflict.
