Accepting NEW clients! Navigating the personal, family, developmental, educational, and professional challenges that arise in all stages of life can be eased through opening ourselves to support and making space for exploring and developing our own inherent strengths, resources, and skills. In acknowledging and honoring ourselves as competent, powerful, and capable, we can create positive change. I provide compassionate support, validation, and understanding in this work, collaborating with you to intentionally and effectively address your needs and goals, while fostering a positive sense of self- worth, efficacy, and empowerment.
I work with clients to manage life transitions, heal from loss, gain insight into past experiences, and improve coping skills for managing difficult emotions. Together we will address underlying stressors and improve your overall well-being, to support you in achieving your goals.
Do you feel lost and alone? Do things that used to give you pleasure only add to your anxiety and sadness? Do others not understand what you are trying to say? Do you mask your feelings in order to cope, and sometimes even detach from them altogether, when on the inside you feel frustrated, depressed, and even angry? Are you sick and tired of feeling this way? Together, you and I will figure out what’s really going on. With me, you will be seen, heard, and believed. There is a reason for all these emotions. It’s going to be okay. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You are not alone.
When moving through difficult times, it can be hard to remember our innate goodness, let alone act from that place to meet the challenges of living in a complex world. Clients come to me with a variety of concerns - significant life transitions, relationship struggles, grief, anxiety, depression, career changes, and the real stress of living in such uncertain times. Together, we can unpack these issues to uncover the wisdom and strength that you already possess.
We live in a complex, interconnected world, making it challenging to process our thoughts and experiences, while also prioritizing our own needs and wants. When we seek support from others, it opens up a whole new realm of possibility, as we’re not meant to go it alone. Using a holistic lens, I aim to provide person-centered, strength-based modalities that foster equilibrium and empowerment.
*Not accepting new clients at this time* I work with adults and teens, and have a holistic, eclectic approach. With an emphasis on developing self-love and self-discovery, you can begin the process of healing around issues such as, anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, relationship issues, body image, parenting, and more. In our work together we will use compassion and creativity to discover your inner wisdom and strengths, and to identify and change old patterns of feeling.
Self awareness and connection can heal. My practice is a place where we can build safety and vulnerability, and work together to help you better understand yourself. Therapy is not always easy, but here you can regain a sense of control and create momentum.
Is your child’s thinking, feeling, or behavior negatively affecting their ability to fully engage in life? I help children and families identify challenge areas and provide support through offering individual sessions for children, family-based sessions, and parent-focused sessions. While I may offer specific expertise relating to therapy and child development, parents are the experts when it comes to their own children, so I rely on collaboration with family members to provide the most effective treatment.
During the Corona virus pandemic I provide tele-mental health services for individual, group, children and family services. I run many groups especially for those helping others at this difficult time. Do you feel controlled by your anxiety? Does your anxiety get triggered easily and quickly especially especially at this time? I can help you understand what triggers your your anxiety and makes it feel so insurmountable. Together we'll work on reducing the impact of your triggers and ultimately your anxiety, call or email me now so we can get started right away.

Therapy provides a safe, welcoming, and nonjudgmental environment so you can work out what you want from life, how you want to get there and what holds you back. I help adult and adolescent clients deal with the everyday issues that derail them as well as look at past experiences to see how that clouds the future. I bring with me experience in mental health counseling, as well as having worked with special needs populations, behavioral interventions, and education.
Therapy provides the support to make changes and an enviornment where alternative ways of thinking, reacting and feeling can occur.

I encourage your own capacity to heal within the framework of a safe and trusting therapeutic environment, integrating psychodynamic, somatic, and mindfulness-based interventions as well as the artistic process. In my work with families and children, my goal is to support secure, healthy attachments and foster communication, no matter what has come in the way.
Brene Brown once said that “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” My ideal client is a courageous adult ready to begin the journey toward seeing, hearing, appreciating, and valuing themselves for the beautiful, vulnerable, imperfect, lovable, authentic, and worthy person that they are. I am a clinician who values the importance of creating a warm, non-judgmental, and meaningful therapeutic experience that is tailored to support each person’s unique individual needs.
My ideal clients are adolescents and adults who are ready to break old habitual patterns which perpetuate symptoms and internal conflict. Whether it's anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationship problems or addiction. The source of the problem lies in defense responses created to avoid painful unconscious material from early childhood and/or other traumatic experiences. Traditional talk therapy is limited in its results because it doesn't get to the root of the problem which lies in the central nervous system and deeper parts of the brain.
I work with couples to help clarify their interests and review their relationship in a supportive setting. We explore solutions that can go a long way toward reinvigorating the affection and respect that brought them together in the first place. Most relationships have all the positive ingredients necessary for the long haul, but events and circumstances can cloud the good feelings that keep healthy partnerships humming along. I am dedicated to helping you reset your lives, feel the mutual admiration, and make plans for a happier future. My values support diversity, gender equality, and fairness in all walks of life.
"When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending”. If you find yourself struggling and unable to cope, but feel unsure of where to start, this is where our partnership can begin. Healing from trauma is a journey, one that you do not have to walk alone. I will be alongside you in this journey and together we will learn new things about ourselves and ways to approach the good, the bad and messiness of life. It is possible to work toward your brave new ending and journey of healing and I would be honored to be in this work with you.
