I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to be themselves and fully engage in the therapeutic experience. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. Many of the individuals I work with have difficulty managing their feelings, keeping their thoughts organized, and achieving positive change. My goal for my clients is to help you identify what is challenging you and develop a plan to achieve that positive change you are seeking.
Is it possible that you are currently wanting to make a change in your life or are dealing with feelings of sadness or stress? Have you been carrying around pain that you are ready to let go of? Have you been living your life with fear or anxiety and want to conquer it? These experiences can feel complicated and scary sometimes, and that is okay. I am here to help you navigate what can sometimes feel like very rough waters. Therapy is a great place to start making the changes you have probably thought about making for quite some time.

36+ years of working with people's suffering and struggle have taught me much about both the loving and destructive things we are capable of doing to ourselves as well as to others I have also witnessed the incredible growth, healing, and freedom of people who put energy and sincere effort into understanding their experience and learning how to uncover and grow their innate wisdom and strength
Therapy is a process. I believe the most important elements include forming a meaningful connection, recognizing strengths, and facilitating unique pathways to growth and change. Life can be challenging, it is full of both wonder and adversity, we are all on a journey and at times it can be helpful to talk about what is going on. The last several years have been different than anything we have experienced. The wish to have everything return to "normal" is at times overpowering. Pandemic stress on top of life is a lot. It is important to practice self care and to reach out for support when needed.

If you are ready to get unstuck, stop the fear cycle and break free from anxiety, it is possible. We CAN rewire our brains to feel calmer and live in the present by changing how we think & use our bodies. The mind & body are one, so why not use both to manage anxiety, or to unlearn your nervous system’s response to trauma. Thanks to advances in neuroscience, you can free yourself from the grip of anxiety that has taken you hostage. Trauma gets trapped in the body, causing physical symptoms, but it can be released via innovative, science-based methods. Healing from trauma doesn’t have to be done alone… you can feel safe again.
