Change being a constant force in our lives means that there is constant opportunity for us to create something different for ourselves. Opportunity can feel exciting, and it can also be a difficult and disorienting process. Losing sense of self, values, and direction, and uncertainty about the future are common experiences- ones you don't have to navigate alone. Additionally, if you find yourself experiencing anxiety, low mood, difficulties with relationships with both yourself and/or others, or if intense emotions are getting in the way, then you've come to the right place!

When you find someone you can work well with, therapy is an amazing process. Whether I'm that person for you shouldn't be too difficult to determine, but we do need to at least speak on the phone - and perhaps meet a few times. I know taking that next step can be a little anxiety provoking.

Are you struggling with everyday life stressors? Perhaps you have anxiety, depression, or just not feeling like your usual self. Do you have racing thoughts, loss of sleep, lack of motivation? Maybe you are telling yourself "life has been more overwhelming than usual, I just want things to be different." You might say you are ok but you feel like you are wearing a mask, and you have a hard time functioning. Are your relationships suffering? Are you feeling like you don't want to get out of bed or go to work? Lost that spiritual connection? Maybe, you want to learn healthier ways to cope. Today you take back your life!

Struggling with substance use disorders can often be lonely, isolating and confusing. There is a lot of help offered out there, but so often what's being offered can be confusing and conflicting. Is addiction a behavior? A spiritual malady? A disease? Or is it something more? My own path of recovery took me many attempts and eventually led me to school to seek the science behind substance use disorders, to recovery rooms, to many therapists for personal recovery, and to lots of different religious avenues in search of meaning and understanding. What I found has illuminated my own path and practice. I love to pass these insights on.

I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, addiction, relationship concerns, and other life experiences. I believe that each person has their own story that has shaped what they are currently experiencing. Through my work, I strive to foster a safe space where clients can tell their stories, gain insight into how that has impacted them, and create a new reality that is more fulfilling. I purposefully incorporate multicultural concepts into each case because I feel culture greatly influences how we interact with those around us and can help to define our strengths.

Therapy is most meaningful when you have a clear understanding of the work being done, and can choose a specific approach that aligns with your values and goals. Since there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, our process will involve trying and tracking different approaches tailored to your individual needs, keeping the ones that help, and avoiding painful repetition of strategies that don't help. Together, we will build a process that works, and move at a mutually agreed upon pace and direction toward clarity, understanding, and change.

As a practitioner of nearly 20yrs I have served a broad population and addressed numerous issues in my practice. Few of us manage to navigate life without some need of assistance at some point. I appreciate the vulnerability therapy demands and am always aware of the importance of a safe, non-judgmental or shaming environment. It takes courage to come face to face with ourselves and I recognize the struggles of each individual. I believe in a holistic approach when listening and offering insight.

They would like to have confidence in their ability to get through conflict without hostility. They want more peace in their life and they are willing to work to get there. Some are on the verge of divorce and want to determine if they should stay together. Others want to get the spark back and learn tantra.
