Do you feel anxious or depressed? Are you experiencing life stressors, loss, conflict, change, illness or trauma? When this happens, and coping skills break down, life quickly unravels. Compassion, empathy and ability, paired with a therapist who can guide you to healing, can really help you feel better and improve your quality of life. That person is me, and I am honored to walk along with you on the path to healing. Rarely is a single approach right for healing, growth and change. Rather, I believe in an eclectic approach to ensure one's desired goals for treatment are met.

I believe that all people seeking therapy are truly unique, yet we all have the same basic needs for acceptance, compassion, happiness, and human connection. For some, our early childhood experiences prevent us from getting these needs met as adults. For others, it is simply the stresses and demands of everyday life that contribute to our feeling anxious, depressed or having chronic pain symptoms. Sometimes we experience losses (big or small) which are hard to process and recover from. Often it is a combination of factors that we cannot clearly identify. Therapy is the path toward getting your needs met.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples either in a committed relationship or marriage. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.
