My approach is rooted in the experience and belief that we have the answers within. I want my clients to not only survive addiction, eating disorders, and anxiety, but to thrive and love their life. My clients are often incredibly intelligent, creative, and driven. I have seen my clients accomplish amazing things when they get clear on their goals and apply their gifts toward a fulfilling life. My goal is to help you get beneath the layers of labels and get down to your core. Much of our work focuses on aligning your decisions and actions with your own truth.
There are times in life that people experience difficult emotions, low mood, anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, thoughts of self-harm, suicide, and feeling "stuck." You may be looking to navigate these thoughts and feelings, interested in improving communication in your interpersonal relationships, or hoping to learn coping skills in order to manage overwhelming emotions. Ultimately, you are the expert of you own life, and I look forward to leaning into these challenges with you as a collaborator.
Do you want to increase genuine happiness? Do you feel like you've tried everything and are still stuck? Do you desire lasting change? These are things that CAN be acheived. Therapy and/or coaching can help you discover your values and identify active steps to reach your desired goals.
My practice is not accepting new clients at this time. I commend you for being here. It takes courage and strength to ask for help. I believe as human beings we are resilient and often intuitively know what we need to do to heal. Unfortunately sometimes that healing can be thwarted by seemingly insurmountable barriers such as depression, anxiety, history of trauma, or substance abuse. Let's work together to create more effective coping skills so you may actually live, rather than just survive, your life. I find that the best results in treatment stem from focusing on people's strengths rather than their weaknesses.

"What if I crumble under the pressure?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. You worry that people will think you're a "fraud" or "impostor". (A very common fear). You're tired of people telling you that you're "overthinking it." Performance anxiety is real. Athletes, performers, business professionals, and test takers all experience it and it's debilitating - making it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone enjoy what you're doing. You're ready for a mindset change, a different way to do things.
Human development and thriving is difficult in this lifetime. This struggle may be found in a past trauma that is sticks out in your heart and mind as a thorn piercing in. Or maybe it's the neurodivergent attributes of yourself you haven't quite understood. Maybe you've been diagnosed with ADHD at a young age and never learned anything about it or how to take care of it other than taking medication - or worse, thinking that you were inadequate. Maybe it's the navigation of unclear waters around your own psyche. To process these factors during the week is hard, this is why I offer space on the weekend.
I love working with people who are willing to look at life from a holistic perspective. This is especially powerful in transforming not only health issues but also relationship issues. My specialty is helping people who have done good work on themselves previously and now need another perspective to open them up for further growth. I am an expert in the field of Mind-Body-Spirit counseling with over 30 years experience with special emphasis on environmental and autoimmune illnesses.
If you're struggling with intense emotions that feel like they are controlling you and behaviors that help in the short term but only make life harder -- you're in the right place. A lot of times we continue to struggle, not because we don't want to change, but because we don't know how. I can teach you the skills needed to have more choice and control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Learning these skills can make the difference between your emotions dictating your life and you finally being in the drivers seat.
I have been in the mental health field for 12 years with experience in Depression, Anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder and people that just feel stuck. I work with a wide range of individuals ages 18 to the end stages of life. It is important for me to remain true to who I am and to provide clients with an experience that at times can be hard to sit with, however the process provides insight, meaning and problem solving. The journey to better mental health is best with a person that can walk along with you. If you are ready for change I will be there.
I am a transpersonal therapist focused on healing the split associated with trauma. Trauma can disconnect a person from their original truth and create a disconnect in the mind-body and spirit of a person. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Inner Counselor are two highly effective approaches I offer. I see clients with panic disorder and depression, sexual abuse, abusive relationships, codependency and self-esteem issues and more. Bringing health and balance back around areas that have become compulsions (eating, sex, alcohol, relationships, etc.) is another important part of this personal healing journey.
Through a powerful process of inner evolution, I show you how to eliminate self-sabotage *permanently* so you can experience the confidence, freedom, and success you desire. Most people spend their lives struggling unnecessarily, never realizing that the struggle is self-created. They are working against themselves, frustrated, lonely, and unable to move past the "glass ceiling" that’s holding them back. When in reality, one simple inner shift can shatter it and launch them forward into effortless success. I specialize in helping you to make that essential inner shift.

Life's challenges may be expressed in many ways- grief and loss, life transitions, depression, anxiety, strained relationships, trauma- but there is hope for real change and growth to happen. Enlisting the support of an objective person who can assist in coming to terms with the unresolved issues we face, or find new ways of seeing and being with our reality as it is, can help. I especially enjoy working with people as they work through life transitions and who are interested in a more holistic approach.
I believe in acknowledging the humanness in each individual while providing a compassionate space to delve into the complicated existence of “being” in this world. I will walk alongside you as an advocate and support while you move through your journey of healing, growth and transformation. The foundation of my clinical work is person-centered, trauma-informed, and resiliency-focused. I am invested in my therapeutic relationships, and I feel immense amounts of gratitude to partner with individuals as they move through and process trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, attachment issues, self-esteem concerns, and life challenges.
Exhausted by your loud inner critic? Overwhelmed by your neverending to-do list? Or maybe you're a slave to your job? Despite looking like you have your sh!t together, internally you feel like a scattered fraud cosplaying as a human. Trying to be the perfect friend, perfect professional, or perfect partner all at once is exhausting. There's a deeper wound that hasn't healed yet. Perhaps you dream of feeling fulfilled, calm, & confident? To say "no" and actually mean it? To stop playing small & launch that creative idea? If you want to stress less & live authentically without fear or guilt, I’d love to help you step into your power.
Hi! Going to therapy can be an intimidating process, and my goal is to create an authentic and accepting environment to help you feel seen, understood, and give you the confidence to try things differently. Vulnerability can be one of the scariest, most liberating and empowering acts, and takes courage – so I commend you for being here, wherever you are in your process.
Anxiety, Addiction, or Depression might have you feeling like you've lost touch with the life you really want. You might feel alone in all this, but I promise you're not. I help people just like you learn concrete tools and strategies to achieve the life you want. It's ok if you aren't sure what you want. We can figure it out together and build a roadmap for how to get there. The most important thing that a client needs is a therapist who is nonjudgmental, compassionate, relatable, and down to earth - so I work hard to embody these qualities.
