Do you look in the mirror & sometimes don't know who is staring back at you? Anxiety is flooding your thoughts & stressing you out. Not feeling seen or heard by your significant other, family, or friends. You've contemplated whether this relationship is even right for you. You've been the "strong" one, always holding it together when everything is falling apart. Well...YOU deserve to feel heard & seen. YOU deserve to know who is staring back in the mirror. YOU are worthy of unconditional love & respect in your relationship. Let someone else help you for once. This is your time to unleash the true you & shape the life you deserve.

I use narrative therapy to address anger in women, conflict in family relationships, codependency, sexuality and setting boundaries.
We're supposed to drink enough water, get enough sleep, exercise, save money, make money, work hard while having work/life balance, be a great spouse/parent/sibling/child, travel more...the list is endless. We are taught to engage life at a grueling and intense pace that is becoming increasingly difficult in the backdrop of a tumultuous world in crisis. I don't view mental health in a vacuum; sometimes depression and anxiety are appropriate and healthy responses to stressful and unprecedented life events. I teach solution-oriented skills to address feelings, improve communication and live in a healthy way that honors your humanity.

When working with children, I work with parents to improve family communication styles, help with setting healthy expectations and boundaries, strengthen family bonds through connection and fun, and teach evidenced-based parenting skills.
Is your child or teen overly emotional and reactive? Does your child withdrawal from others or refuse to try things because he or she is afraid of failing or worried about what others think? Does he or she have large emotional outbursts over small things? Or is your child or teen struggling with low self-esteem, communication with others, and developing meaningful friendships? Is your child or teen overly anxious when asked to do a task, transition to a new activity, or to try something new? Has your child or teen experienced a difficult life event, transition, or traumatic experience? You are not alone and I can help.

I have a passion for families struggling w/ blended family issues, addiction or mental illness.
"...healing means, first of all, the creation of an empty but friendly space where those who suffer can tell their story to someone who can listen with real attention..." (Henri Nouwen). My desire in counseling is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for one to tell their story, to go deeper and discover the their own personal way of being human and the way they want to go. As Henri Nouwen says, "Quite often it is our fear for the hidden moments in our own history that keeps us paralyzed."
