I have been working with adolescents, adults and families since the mid 1980's. Substance abuse, depression, anxiety, LGBT and family issues are the areas that I have the most experience in. I believe folks come to therapy because some aspects of their lives are not working...we will explore these issues and move to get you where you want and need to be. I have many years of various types of training, but the most important is to get people back to being comfortable, happy and productive in their own world. Compassion and humor are extremely important values to find in each of our lives!!

I believe that all human beings are innately good and have an inner drive to do and be better everyday. Individuals who come to see me are usually stuck or have trouble reaching their full potential by mental health symptoms, or other barriers in life. Individuals who come to see me range from those who are curious about change, and those who are severely impacted by mental illness or addiction in their lives.
There is not a "right way," to do life. Life is hard, confusing, exhausting and sometimes, down right miserable. Each individual person has circumstances and challenges that may feel impossible to overcome. I want to tell you, they are not. It will be hard, but with your motivation to change, and my support we can move mountains. Therapy is great way to vent frustrations, receive guidance, and be completely and emotionally vulnerable in a totally judgement free space.
Non-medication approaches and interventions for mental health needs. I utilize a common sense approach to finding solutions to complex problems. I will work with you to find a solution as soon as possible and make every attempt to use a brief model of treatment. My specialty is working with kids with behavioral issues and helping families with teens that are struggling. I have also worked a great deal with adults on a variety of issues and find great enjoyment in helping people move forward in their life.
Building a positive therapeutic relationship is important. This begins with developing trust. I will provide you with a safe space where you will feel understood in order to help you navigate the challenges you are facing and create change.
"Life’s difficulties can be overwhelming and at times feel unmanageable. Utilizing aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness techniques, I can assist you in learning skills to manage life’s stressors and decrease that overwhelming feeling. Together, we can navigate through the therapeutic process and find what is comfortable for you. I assist individuals to address things such as relationships, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and behaviors. I provide therapy for ages five and up for individuals, couples, families and groups. We also offer teen, adult male and female groups.
Over the years, I have spent a great deal of time working with children and adults who have experienced traumatic events. These traumatic events may be difficult to understand and can impact our daily interactions at school, home, and work. When those experiences become overwhelming, working with a therapist who is specifically trained in trauma can be very helpful to the individual and family. In addition to providing services for trauma, I work closely with individuals (of all ages) who have anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, and chronic medical conditions. Clinical services may be provided in the office, home, school or via telehealth.

Your authentic self is beautiful. Unfortunately sometimes we lose ourselves when we get caught up in the way we think we "should" be in various relationships, workspaces, and societal expectations. Losing or ignoring who we truly are can lead to relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and general life dissatisfaction. Sometimes losing ourselves happens due to traumatic life circumstances and sometimes it's due to years of unrelenting pressures. Let's get curious about your passions, work together to let go of what's not working, and build a roadmap so you can step in to a more authentic you.
Do you ever wish your life wasn’t a revolving door heading nowhere fast? A continuous cycle of habits, anxious thoughts and unhealthy patterns that cloud your mind and your ability to complete normal everyday tasks. You look like you have it all together but deep down you are slowly unraveling. You wish you had some sort of control over where you are, where you are going, and when you will get there. This can be discouraging, but it is very common and nothing to feel ashamed or guilty over.
