I believe in using therapy as a means to help people find the tools within themselves to move toward positive mental health and overall wellness. I believe in support over solution; in walking with someone to face their unique issues however they need rather than “fixing” them. As a social worker, I consider the “whole person” and the systems impacting them to offer a positive therapeutic experience to every client and help them to feel seen, heard, and supported. I specialize in using EMDR with neurodivergent folx who may feel less-than, not good enough, inherently wrong, etc.

Maybe you are dealing with the effects of painful or traumatic experiences in the past, or a loss, or have anxiety you can't shake off. You might feel out-of-place and lonely. You want to feel accepted and understood, to find relief from what feels overwhelming, to trust yourself more. Reaching out to a therapist can feel scary, or pointless – it can’t "fix" whatever already happened – but it can help you to have a future where you feel connected and confident.

I enjoy working with people who are experiencing life transitions, stress, anxiety, mild to moderate depression, relational difficulties, and adolescents that may be having issues in school who are on the middle to upper spectrum of autism, or struggle with anxiety, adjustment difficulties or learning disabilities, mens issues, veterans, single mothers. People who want to succeed and move forward in their life in whatever area of struggle they may have. I offer 10 minute consultation so we can both determine if moving forward would be beneficial.

Lets explore your life experience in a new and exciting way. I see suffering as an opportunity to break free from old patterns, habits, and ways of thinking that are not working for you anymore. It's a call from deep inside saying, "something needs to shift". This shift can come from exploring a relationship to a substance that you are using, and the pain, anxiety, depression, or a general sense of not loving your life that may come with it. Your unique journey is here right now, and experiencing it from a nonjudgmental perspective can be a vital ingredient to moving past whatever is holding you back from living your best life.

I have been working with clients since 1991. Over the course of my training and experience, my style of therapy has evolved to an integrative approach combining humanistic, feminist, and psychodynamic theories of personality development with an approach that emphasizes the adaptive development of identity across the lifespan within broad interpersonal, social, and cultural contexts. I seek to find what is working well for you, help you understand the experiences that brought you to this place in your life, and use your strengths to help you grow and develop insight as well as create behavioral change.

Life sometimes presents challenges that can overwhelm and disconnect us from ourselves and leave us feeling lost and alone. Whether we are adults or children, we can develop patterns that do not serve us well, as we struggle to cope. I help clients (individuals and couples) examine rather than run from their anxiety, depression, or uncomfortable feelings arising from change, whether at work, in school or at home. I believe that we all have strengths and the potential for well-being. Together we will reduce conflict and stress in your life, improve performance and seek better health.

Are you feeling unworthy of the life you are living or maybe incompetent in the role that you have? Maybe it feels like every thought that crosses your mind is a spiraling rabbit hole of worst-case scenarios, and it’s creating a barrier to reaching your fullest potential. Has it felt like you’ve been on an emotional roller coaster of sadness, anxiety, or confusion and you feel like the ride is never going to end? Perhaps an unsettling sense of wanting to isolate or build walls within your close relationships. You always make sure everyone else is taken care of first; however, you know it’s time for something different. Time for you.

Does it feel like you keep hitting the same wall of anxiety, overwhelm, and self-criticism? Maybe you’re generally satisfied with where you’re at in life but can’t seem to stop that nagging feeling that you “should” be doing more. Despite being adaptive, intelligent, and insightful, you still never quite feel "good enough". I want to support you in freeing yourself from the traps of family pressure, cultural expectations, and societal demands while stepping into your inherent worth and self-trust. As your counselor, I'll help you sort through your conflicting feelings, make peace with your past, and embrace your truth.

I am not able to accept new clients at this time. I have over 35 years of experience as a mental health clinician. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy - which means that I believe that who we are as adults is shaped by the past relationships we had in our families. The difficulties we have in our work, relationships and within ourselves, can be managed better and overcome, when we have greater understanding of how these earlier experiences have shaped us. Change happens as this understanding opens up new possibilities for what we want for ourselves, and how we experience ourselves and others.

I feel passionate about serving those who have experienced trauma, particularly attachment-based trauma. Above all, stable and consistent connection for someone with an attachment-based trauma can make all the difference in the world. I believe there is great power in holding a space for someone to feel heard and understood, as many folks do not have that safe space with anyone in their life. I also have experience working with folks with substance use challenges. I find that substances can often be what someone turns to when they don’t have the tools and support they need to manage the challenges they are facing.

**My practice is currently full and I'm not accepting new clients.** Taking the step to begin counseling requires vulnerability and courage, and you are so brave for being here. You may be feeling overwhelmed, in a challenging relationship, or hoping to find more purpose. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or perfectionism and want life to feel less challenging. You may have experienced a traumatic event and need someone to help hold your story so you can shift to living in a place of security instead of fear. You want to find meaning, make changes, and need support. We all need that sometimes.

Change is a constant. Our ability to adapt isn't. There are times you need extra support to adjust to challenging situations, heal past hurt, cope with family and relationship issues, or learn new skills to increase your resiliency.

My hope is that our work together supports a sense of increased freedom and wellbeing for you.

All relationships hold the capacity for both sacred joy and deep pain. We tend to get stuck in cycles that threaten to derail our connection with the ones who matter most. We lose sight of one another in the daily grind and can’t seem to find our way back to a partner or maybe even to ourselves. That feeling of safety and respect slips away, and you get stuck in negative emotions that steal the love you once held for your partner. You reach out and feel rejected. You take space but feel lonely. You are not the only one. Like you, I’ve experienced negative relationship cycles in my 15-year marriage.
