Therapy can be a powerful tool for promoting change, healing and growth. The goal is to replace feelings of emptiness or symptoms of anxiety and depression with feelings of empowerment and overall emotional well-being. By fostering meaningful discussions, positive behaviors and healthy changes can be achieved. As a licensed clinical social worker, and licensed certified alcohol and drug counselor, I have more than 20 years’ experience working with a diverse population in the prevention, treatment and recovery support field for mental health and substance use disorders. I specialize in grief and working with adults and older adults.

After making the courageous decision to pursue therapy, the next step is to find a counselor that you connect with. I view empathy, trust, and being non-judgemental as the cornerstones of therapy and seek to provide a safe and welcoming space. My approach is collaborative and integrative, utilizing evidence-based practices such as mindfulness, CBT, DBT, MI, and Solution-Focused Therapy in a systemic approach anchored in humanistic theory, borrowing from several other orientations. I'm also an EMDRIA approved EMDR therapist.

I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

As a licensed professional counselor, I specialize in helping clients who are facing challenges in balancing multiple life roles and responsibilities, experiencing burnout, and going through transitions. I am passionate about using the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) framework to guide my counseling approach. I understand that juggling various roles and responsibilities can be overwhelming, and it's common to feel burnt out and unsure of how to navigate through life's transitions. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I know sometimes the journey to finding help may be bumpy. So give yourself some props for making it here. At times we all face struggles internal, external, and often a combination of both. I have observed that often we can feel stuck from these experiences, even if we’ve tried to move on from them. That is because we need a little guidance to process and repair the internal sense of disconnection that remains imprinted in our system. It is my hope to help facilitate a path towards increased sense of connection, finding more ease, feeling better, and move towards the life you want.
