When we are in difficult situations, we may lose sight of our personal strengths. My goal is to honor your own personal philosophies and belief systems in order to better understand how to best help you in your time of need. I believe that change stems from genuine, empathetic human interaction, and I strive to allow you to feel comfortable and safe enough to allow these personal connections to emerge. Through these connections, we will work together to develop new insights and coping skills, and ultimately recognize the strength you have within yourself to change your life for the better.

Are you a parent desperate to find your child the support they need to manage their emotions? Children are struggling these days and unfortunately it's not easy to find the right help. It can be hard to know how to help and you might find yourself not knowing what to do or say. The truth is, children/teens often need to hear "advice" coming from someone else. You are also likely making some common mistakes when it comes to helping your child through their difficult moments, because let's face it, you're not your child's therapist. Let's keep it that way. You can just be the parent and start enjoying time with your child again.

My passion is working with individuals struggling with everyday issues that challenge each of us at different stages of life.

I relate to my clients in an emotional and authentic way by providing real-life guidance and direction for individuals to assess and redirect their relationships and goals.

It can be hard to imagine talking to a stranger about your deepest feelings and life experiences.

Self-empathy and self-nurturing can be learned even as an adult.

My road to becoming a LCSW started by having debilitating panic attacks. What was my worst nightmare became my passion to help others recover from anxiety. I suffered from panic attacks for many years, until a major setback caused my life to derail. I dropped out of college after having a panic attack in class. I could no longer function without having someone with me at all times. I sought treatment and slowly began to regain my life back. Each success pushed me further to my ultimate goal of becoming a LCSW.

Life stress? Relationship stress? Anxiety? Depression? There are various reasons why people choose to enter therapy. For some, the choice to see a therapist emerges slowly as they recognize their ability to function in life is either not where they want it to be or is deteriorating. Their coping mechanisms begin to breakdown as they become overwhelmed with negative emotions. Others may seek therapy from a more positive place and might be more interested in self-exploration. Our developmental and life experiences may include traumatic memories. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) I can help you to process and heal.
