I have over a decade of experience helping others as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Registered Art Therapist, and Licensed School Adjustment Counselor. Learning how to navigate anxiety and life's stressors can be scary and challenging. Effectively managing your thoughts and feelings is a skill to be learned and practiced. This is where I believe I can support you and/or your child's growth and development. Having the support of a trained therapist to master the approaches to feel your best will allow you to take these tools with you and use for years to come.

Shame is a belief that “ I am bad”and/or defective. It is not a belief that I DID something bad. It causes us to hide our true self and prevents us from loving and forgiving ourself. There is often no understanding of why we feel this way or even what we have done to make us feel bad. It is not an easy fix in psychotherapy but it can be accomplished and transform our lives so that we may live more fully and happily.
