I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology and graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. My therapy approach is taken from an attachment theory and perspective. I believe humans are wired to feel connected and that we all greatly benefit from healthy relationships. Without this connectedness, we may experience loneliness or isolation. I provide a safe, accepting space for individuals, couples, and families using a positive Existential Therapy Model to support self-awareness, meaningful relationships, and values of life.

I am adept at treating much of the human condition because my training is existential -humanistic. My approach is holistic, client-centered, and tailored to the specific place you are in the world. I will help you move to your place of purpose and meaning, as well as evoke the innate ability for healing. I do not think there is an ideal client, but there is an ideal relationship that we establish together. I ensure that you feel attended to, heard and seen in the way you wish to be. You deserve stellar care. Visit or call for free 15 minute consultation.

Like most counselors, I draw from multiple theoretical orientations including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Existential Therapy.
Therapy is about telling the truth, healing old wounds, and making changes. Energetically, it's about moving from a psychic atmosphere that feels dark, cramped, and distorted to one full of ease, air, and light. At least, that has been my own experience as a client in therapy. I found the conversations so transformative that I returned to graduate school at midlife to become a counselor. Now, I help clients who are struggling (as I have) with anxiety, life transitions, and difficult decisions.

The primary theoretical orientations that I use are person-centered, DBT, narrative, and existential .
Do you feel stuck and unable to make changes in your life? While change is not easy, it is possible. Therapy can be a powerful tool in this process by helping you gain insight, support, and confidence to develop new patterns and behaviors. I work collaboratively with individuals to identify the sources of their pain and empower them to resolve them. You're not alone & things can improve. And if you’re wondering if now is the right time, it probably is.

Life is difficult. Beginning the process of therapy can also be difficult, but when the process succeeds, an individual can rise above their difficulties through the collaborative work of a fellow journeyer. My ideal client is someone who has aspirations for themselves but is unsure how to satisfy or achieve them. I especially enjoy working with individuals on spiritual and existential issues to work out questions related to their understanding of the meaningfulness of life, connection with others, isolation, and freedom.

I use mostly a narrative approach, but may have individuals and families utilizing existential techniques to work towards their goals.
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.

I may use depth psychological, client centered, solution focused, cognitive restructuring, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, existential , mindfulness and story-listening.
There are moments in our lives when we need someone to hear our personal story because it feels too overwhelming to be contained. I passionately believe people are capable of investigating, with help, their areas of emotional discomfort and self-doubts. My skill as a therapist is assisting individuals in authentically discovering their hidden stories while honoring their uniqueness. I offer the safe environment and genuine respect needed to imagine healing mind, body and spirit. People can then begin a process of making new choices and trying out new life skills.

I have specific training in treating individuals with Complex Trauma, Dissociative Disorders, Addictive Processes, Depression and Anxiety, Life Transitions and Existential Crises.
Do you feel stuck or lost much of the time, but also have an innate ability to recognize that you want and deserve more out of life, out of your relationships, perhaps more out of yourself? Do you want to participate in a deep dive of possible unconscious material that may be holding you back? Being able to open up about these vulnerabilities is challenging and involves deep exploration into the psyche. My intention is to create a safe, accepting container so you are able to explore all parts of yourself, welcome them and integrate them into your life.

I believe that you have the power to re-author your story and engage in your own existential makeover.
Life is tough. Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or out of rhythm by the complexity and challenges life may present? Do you struggle with any of the following issues: anxiety, perfectionism, self-doubt, unrealistic expectations, feelings of failure, low self-worth, lacking self-acceptance, emotional regulation, lifestyle management, or relational issues with spouse/partner/family/kids? Do you feel your life lacks meaning or purpose? If any of these issues resonate, I believe I can provide you the space to explore the conflicts within and help you find a pathway towards resolution.

I believe there is power in learning to balance our lives emotionally and spiritually. I have 20-plus years as a counselor, and have been able to help clients find emotional and general life balance. I draw from primary treatment modalities of Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Solution Focussed, Psychodynamic and Existential Theories. Ideally, at the conclusion of counseling, a client will be able to actively deal with their internal states in a way that allows them to feel more at peace with increased self esteem, and well being.

When we are able to acknowledge and express our whole selves without judgment, we open ourselves up to real, meaningful growth. In our everyday lives, that is much easier said than done. Therapy is a unique opportunity to connect with and even embrace the challenging parts of ourselves, allowing us to live richer and more integrated lives. I primarily work with college-aged and older adults, offering individual counseling from an existential / humanistic perspective that draws on perspectives and techniques from Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

In my individual work I draw heavily from humanistic and existential theories from a person-centered perspective.
Hello and welcome! I am currently accepting new clients in my practice where I specialize in helping people reconnect to themselves, their partner(s), or their families. Are you in a relationship that feels disconnected? Tired of having the same argument with your significant other? Have you been feeling lost or unhappy? Are you searching for a private place to process, heal, or collaborate on a plan to feel better? I love working with clients who are motivated to find solutions, and draw on their strengths to enable greater contentment and satisfaction in life.

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Therapy.
Are you spinning your wheels? Have you tried, again and again, to just get this thing called life to work for you, but nothing seems to stick? I've been there, and I get it. Our lives are the stories of our being in the world, and I work with individuals, couples, and families to look at the big picture of the story of YOUR life. We will explore not only the “how” of your life and the challenges that it brings, but also the “why” of these same issues, so that you can finally make some progress and begin to live with greater fulfillment and ease of being in the world.

My approach to therapy integrates existential -humanistic counseling, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, yoga, breath-work, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Has life become overwhelming or over-stimulating? Are you experiencing a sense of hopelessness and mental fatigue? Perhaps, you've come to a point in your life where you simply want to understand yourself better and explore what it means to be authentically human. You are ready to create change for yourself and want some support along the way. I seek to provide guidance for those who are open to the process of self-discovery and healing. My experience lies in working with trauma/stressor related disorders, depression, anxiety, self-identity, life transitions, and spiritual concerns.

My expertise aligns best with adults with ADHD and/or Autism, religious trauma, sexual trauma, perfectionism, codependency, depression, anxiety, existential dread, women ready to reclaim their power, and those ready to improve their boundaries and communication.
Imagine a recent mental health challenge. Maybe the trauma you’ve carried suddenly brought you to your knees, or your neurodivergence made you fear you’ll always be behind. Now imagine how that challenge may change if you have a relationship with a therapist who you genuinely like and trust - who never loses sight of your strengths even if you do, helps you understand your unique brain with developmental neuroscience, gives you tools and perspective shifts to make your struggle easier, holds a safe space to process all of your traumas, and believes in you so fiercely that you start to believe in yourself. Sound helpful? Let’s talk.

Existential Therapists
((https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapy-types/existential-therapy((Existential psychotherapy)) is based on the philosophical belief that human beings are alone in the world, and that this aloneness can only be overcome by creating one's own meaning, and exercising one's freedom to choose. The existential therapist encourages clients to face life's anxieties head on and to start making their own decisions.
