At our first appointment, we will identify your specific needs and strengths and use those to set goals. I'll walk with you to reach those goals and to move from surviving to thriving!

I also specialize in working with youth who have engaged in sexually inappropriate or other disruptive behaviors, including those involved with child protective services and the legal system.
Deciding to attend therapy is a courageous act that can result in life altering and life affirming outcomes. I believe in providing a safe and supportive environment based on unconditional positive regard and focusing on personal strengths. Therapy is a process whereby clients have the opportunity to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and find out how to make changes toward a more fulfilling life. I see therapy as a collaborative process where I help clients identify therapy goals and establish their own measures of progress. Together we find and work toward solutions that can make life more rewarding.

I’ve been in private practice since 2010; before that, I was part of the CSP team at Nationwide Children’s Hospital for three years.
Life is about patterns. We do the same things day after day because they help us function without having to concentrate on every little thing we do. That helps us in many ways, but it can also make us drift away from each other. Without knowing how we got there, we wake up one day wondering who our partner really is or what happened to the kids. That’s where therapy comes in – it helps reconnect couples and families so they can build new patterns that bring them together, not push them apart.
