There is power in asking for help. It takes courage to admit that you don't have it all figured out. Life provides each of us the opportunity and freedom to learn, grow, and change. I offer a safe therapeutic time and space where clients are free to explore their relationships, feelings, and thoughts.
At some point in many people's lives, they experience life-shattering events, where their world just seems to fall apart. They experience loss of meaning and often feel isolated in their pain. Depression and/or anxiety paralyze them and they don't know how integrate what has happened into their life story. Sometimes current losses seem to pull up past losses and people find that they are not only dealing with the present but also prior history. They long for someone who has the patience and understanding to hear their story and help them find the path toward hope and healing.
How content are you with life in the present? Is there pain in your past? Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others? Perhaps you simply feel "stuck?" I believe I can help. As a therapist, I see my role as walking along side you as you journey through life's peaks and valleys, helping to unshackle you from your past, so that you are empowered to more fully enjoy life in the present. My treatment approach is tailored to clients' individual needs and is built on a foundation of honesty, compassion, non-judgment, and genuine relationship. I work collaboratively and prioritize making therapy a safe space to grow.
I work primarily with those who are battling depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If this is you, you are not alone. Estimates of those who fight this battle every day are as high as 40 million or 18.1% of adults annually.
The decision to come to therapy can be scary. There are so many unknowns, especially if you have never done this before. I am here to stand and walk with you through every step of the process of change and healing- It gets better. My goal in my relationship with you is to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable enough to be yourself.
Someone to listen without judgement...someone who seeks to understand... Sometimes that is all it takes to find relief and to live your best life. I deeply respect the courage it takes to share your inner challenges. With over 25 years of experience, I will work with you to discover your best self, to uncover new pathways through old emotions and behaviors--to release the hold of the past and to claim your best life. No matter how stuck you feel... there is a way out. Together we will discover resolutions to family/relationship issues, emotional challenges, spiritual concerns, life/work transitions.
Therapy can feel like a scary step to take. One of the first priorities I focus on is working with that fear, that uncomfortable feeling--It Gets Better. Establishing that trust and rapport is essential in the immediate stage of therapy so that the work ahead does not feel like work but instead like a new found strength that comes from within.
I have been in practice since 1984. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of issues. Among these are marital and family issues, relationship issues, depression and anxiety, spiritual concerns, life phase problems, and work difficulties. I believe in the value of the individual, and consider therapy a partnership between myself and my clients, with the goal of a more balanced, fulfilling life for my clients.

Psychologists work closely with educators and other developmental therapists to understand the learning needs of school-aged children, adolescents, and young adults during comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations. During evaluations, we assess the following domains: attention, language, memory, visual processing. Psychologists and counselors provide ongoing therapy services to preschoolers through young adults to address concerns related to mood, behavior, and social skills. In children and adolescents, playing, drawing, building, and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems.
You will find me here Monday through Wednesdays. You've probably gone over and over the issue in your mind. It will be a relief to talk about it with a non biased confidential professional.

I am a Jungian Psychoanalyst who trained in Zurich Switzerland. I consider the work with the client a unique opportunity for his/her growth and development [regardlessof age] that can bring healing and a greater sense of wholeness to life. The client and I, together, explore dreams, memories of current and past experiences, imagination, thoughts, and feelings, within the context of everyday life and the particular problems presented. We follow these with care, in order to order to find new connections and understanding, healing, and to discover a new meaning and balance in a changing and sometimes disorienting world.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MA, LCMHC, NCC, LCAS-A
I believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from seeing a therapist. Everyone deals with change, stress, and the general ebb and flow of life and having a trusted therapist to turn to during these times can make it all feel more manageable. Starting therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. My goal is to provide a safe, empathetic, non-judgmental space for you to discuss your feelings, behaviors, and thoughts. I get it, being vulnerable can be uncomfortable. However, learning to not only accept the uncomfortable, but to use it to make real, lasting change is why I’m here.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MS, LCMHC
My experience as a clinician focuses on eating disorders, mood disorders, substance use, and trauma. I believe too often individuals underestimate their capability in navigating life’s challenges. I believe when we are vulnerable and authentic to our experiences, we can confront our “stuck points” and begin moving forward. I’m here to help you start moving forward.
Your resiliency is your super power. My mission is to empower people to rewrite their narrative based on externalizing and deconstructing techniques. I know how hard change and transformation can be, and I utilize my skills to empower others to aid in their healing process. Often times we get stuck in the cycle of telling ourselves we are unlovable and damaged. We find ourselves living out those irrational scripts we have been conditioned to feel for so long. My approach can help you move past those barriers that keep you stuck and allow yourself to find healing and purpose. You will learn to own your greatness.
