It is easy to feel overwhelmed and lose one's sense of True North. Issues and experiences from the past may require healing and integration. Current challenges may require more inner wisdom and resourcefulness than we can access on our own. Many people need support to resolve conflicts, deepen connections and expand their lives. Relationships require a solid sense of self, good boundaries, and compassion toward oneself and others, which all can be learned. Even without a religious affiliation, spiritual practices such as gratitude are often enriching. I value new insights, suggest homework and teach practical skills.

My ideal client would be motivated to achieve better for themselves. They could be coming for anxiety, issues in relationships, or a stressful life event. They would be choosing to focus on themselves, what they need, and seeking help. They may be struggling with negative self-thoughts and emotional regulation or simply need guidance in how to identify and verbalize their feelings. Their goals for therapy would be to process their thoughts and emotions while developing long-term skills to use in the future.

You're at the crossroads, transitioning out of a relationship, job, or stage of life. Something fell apart, or fell into your lap, and it's overwhelming to imagine the next steps. You want to get it "right", or you're worried you'll get it "wrong"... You are an empathic person who cares deeply about others and the state of the world. Imagine yourself more connected to your Self - all the parts, including those you know are there in the shadows. Imagine having healthier boundaries, better ways of relating to yourself and others, and an ability to find the courage to step in the each day with a renewed sense of purpose.

Therapeutic Approaches:Psychodynamic, Existential, Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal, Solution-Focused, Person Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, Play Therapy, Pyscho-Education, Systems Theory. I believe in evidence-based, integrative methods designed for the individual, not a one size fits all approach. In my experience, people seek counseling when life is not working for them. They are distressed and often sad that a job, a marriage or schoolwork is overwhelming. Relationships may be troubled or reaching a breaking point. Trauma"“recent or long past"“take a toll on everyday living.

I believe strongly that clients come in all different shapes and sizes and from different walks of life. Therefore, I do not have an ideal client, as my wish is to help anyone who needs it regardless of their experiences, needs, and goals. I welcome the experiences I will gain from having diverse clients.

I have had the pleasure of working with a varied clientele. For many years I have built rapport with and facilitated the progress of youth who are on the spectrum, who have attention disorders, who struggled with emotion regulation, who are mute, who are transgender, and have exhibited self-harming behaviors. I have also worked with families as a parent coach and as a provider of psycho-education. Many of my adult clients have had issues with abandonment, attachment, trauma, and self-harm. The goals I have facilitated my clients progression in are myriad. However, one goal most of my clients aspire to attain is self-love.

I am an LCSW, and I have been a practicing therapist for over 15 years. My goal is to help each client find inner peace and a sense of contentment. On our therapeutic journey together, we will develop ways to navigate the chaos and disappointments life can bring us. We will investigate how our past experiences affect our current reactions, and we will aim to develop greater insight into ourselves and our motivation. I believe that happiness is not something that just appears; it is a feeling that we have to cultivate so that it can flourish and enrich our lives.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! As a counselor, I feel it is imperative to create an environment which enables clients to truly express what their thoughts and feelings are; a person must feel comfortable in their therapeutic setting. Counseling does not need to be a fear-provoking or anxiety-inducing experience, rather it should be a place a client looks forward going to in order to become the best version of themselves possible. I enjoy using various therapeutic modalities with clients, including Cognitive Behavior, Mindfulness, Emotion Focused, Solution Focused, and Psychoanalytic Therapies, among others.

In moments of profound suffering, extreme loss, darkness and confusion, we seek the light of hope and healing. Transformation is obtainable when we find a trusting guide to help us navigate through the many layers of emotions that seem to paralyze us in our tracks. In my 35 years as a clinical social worker/ psychotherapist, I have found my true calling in the areas of bereavement, traumatic loss and assisting those with challenging life issues.
