I work with couples and individuals and support relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, etc. I have found effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

I have many years of experience helping adolescents, young adults, adults, families and parents function more effectively in their relationships and in the world. Rather than focus on diagnoses or symptoms, I prefer to see a client as whole person and to help them unearth the roots of their issues or problems. It takes bravery, commitment, compassion and sometimes a supportive guide, to face our pain and transform our relationship to it. By letting go of past emotional burdens, we can then more easily work to change the behaviors that result from them.

There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the signs of health and success is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. And yet we all struggle to some degree. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential.

I value the therapist-client relationship above all else. Studies show it as one of the highest predictors of success. As such, our relationship will be conversational, sometimes challenging, sometimes humorous, and always attentive to your needs and goals in both the short and long-term. I will not pressure you to do what you do not wish to do, but I will ask that you set new challenges for yourself that we both feel you can achieve. And I will be your advocate through the struggles to reach a better understanding and experience in this life.

You’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or lost. You’re stressed and dissatisfied in your relationships but are struggling to pinpoint why or how to change the dynamic. You’ve often felt like you don’t really belong with your friends, family, peers or colleagues. Maybe you’ve avoided therapy in the past because a part of you secretly (or not so secretly!) feels that you “should” be able to figure this out on your own. You’ve exhausted yourself trying other methods that have left you struggling with chronic worry, dark moods, and the painful sensation that “something is wrong with me.”

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

I have extensive experience working with trauma, mood disorders and behavior disorders and I work exceptionally well with adolescents and young adults although I feel comfortable working with adults of all ages.

Sometimes we feel 'stuck.' Sometimes we experience negative emotions which we feel conflict with our values, morals, ideals. Sometimes we feel an emptiness. Like our inner flame...the one which burns inside, pushing us to set & pursue goals, dream, live life with a sense of anticipation...has dimmed, until just an ember. Sometimes our negative life experiences get us caught up in the lies of guilt and shame. Paralyzing us. Keeping us from moving forward. Perhaps it's more than 'just' feelings and emotions. Maybe symptoms of mental illness make life hard. And navigating through life, each day, each moment, feels like tedious work.

After that horrific humiliating work experience, you constantly feel so misunderstood, left behind, and stupid at work, no matter how affirming your current boss and coworkers’ intentions are. You know you have potential, but you are doubting it will ever be played out, much less recognized due to the constant blockage of self-doubt. You’ve almost given up on ever getting enough sleep or family time, much less yoga class or lunch with friends, for worrying so much about being suddenly busted for another unintended mess up at work.

Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and trauma can be overwhelming. It’s incredibly uncomfortable to feel your heart and mind race or to have shortness of breath. You worry about when a panic attack will happen again and the worry makes matters even worse. You just want to slow down your mind and quit thinking about the what's happened. You feel alone and think "This will never end". Your relationships may be suffering as you lie in bed dwelling on the past or worrying about the future and you want to be able to sleep all night. You've tried everything to control the thoughts and feelings but can't.

...Life often involves challenges effecting the journey toward personal and professional objectives. There are times when it is only the support of genuine listening, empathy, and guidance that desired outcomes are achieved. Whether you are trying to cope with anxiety, depression, self-esteem/confidence, relationship challenges, communication skills, impulse control concerns, life-transition issues (e.g., military/vet, divorce, job loss, retirement), trauma, grief, physical/sexual abuse, or other life challenges. Life is difficult and requires growth and change that are not always easy or comfortable.

For 30 years I've provided a listening ear to my clients. Sometimes, that's all one needs. Other times, we may need a little more direction, a new insight, a gentle push. I strive to recognize and respect the uniqueness of each individual. If you have a child with ADHD or other behavioral or adjustment issues, are an adult having relationship issues, depression or anxiety, or are someone struggling with the pain and confusion of addiction, my experience has prepared me to help you.

My professional education and training was only a part of my development in the field of Clinical Social Work. The other segment that was equally significant was my life prior to attaining my professional credentials as a daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. Life's many challenges provided me with insight into the Human experience and practical application in overcoming them. I not only bring my knowledge of Mental Health, and Alcoholism and Addiction, but also my passion for Clinical Art Psychotherapy, all of which I am Certified to practice in. My primary focus isn't only on the individual but also the "foundation of family".

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
