It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to help others work through personal, relationship and life issues by way of developing a strong therapeutic relationship. My primary goal in therapy is to establish and maintain a safe, trusting and accepting environment. I work from primarily ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) frameworks. Both of these therapies use Mindfulness strategies and other skills to "get you out of your head" and into living life to the fullest.

Anxiety and self-doubt. For women it causes issues at work, at home, and in your relationships. You worry if you’re enough, if you’re doing enough, and how you can make it better. You’re exhausted and it’s hard to keep going and be motivated. You’re not the best at taking care of yourself and often end up being last on the priority list. No stranger to the words “workaholic” or “over achiever,” you put a lot of time and energy into your work. Friends and family members have said “I don’t know how you keep it altogether.” You may have worn this as a badge of honor once but lately something has changed.

"Only in an open non judgmental space can we acknowledge what we are feeling. Only in an open space where we're not caught up in our own version of reality can we see and hear and feel who others really are, which allows us to be with them and communicate with them properly." This quote by Pema Chodron, an American Buddhist Nun expresses the atmosphere I hope to create for clients seeking counseling services from me. For more than 30 years I have attempted to provide, through a collaborative dialogue services that will improve each clients quality of life.

Life is full of challenges and difficult moments. I believe that as human beings, we are wired to deal with our pain in ways that leave us feeling lost, exhausted, and hopeless. We may lose sight of our purpose, our values, our loved ones, and the many other aspects of life that make us whole and content. With humility and compassion, I aim to support you in dropping the struggle and finding new ways to achieve the well-being you deserve. My specialty areas include anxiety, depression, eating concerns, OCD, and interpersonal issues. I welcome people from all cultural backgrounds, religious affiliations and sexual orientations.

My strength and passion is working with adults struggling with substance abuse/dependence and the accompanying depression, anxiety, and fear. Recovery is a collaborative effort requiring empathy, patience, and the willingness to walk through whatever it takes to begin the journey leading to a new and healthy life. As a result of long experience I have been privileged to witness many suffering from chemical dependence awaken to the potential of a life free from the bondage of chemical dependence.

As humans, we sometimes find ourselves stuck. We might feel stuck in painful circumstances, in old and outdated patterns of behaviors, or with narratives that just don't feel true to us anymore. This is part of what it means to be human and yet being human also implies an innate potential for evolution and growth. Together, from a place of centeredness, I work with my clients to get in touch with the present moment, determine what really, truly matters to them, and identify how to move forward in life in a meaningful and intentional way.
