When we feel stuck in life everything can feel difficult and like a battle; I believe there is no need to face issues alone. With a collaborative approach, I can help people better understand the life events that have shaped their view of the world. Every individual experiences events that can discourage us. My goal is to help highlight the unique strengths that lie within all of us. I strive to help children/adolescents, families, and adults to recognize the meaning they attach to life experiences. When we understand the meaning we attach to events, we better understand our choices.

It's our reality that human beings struggle at times along the road of life. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals, couples and families get over and through these life obstacles. I have been honored and amazed to witness people conquer fears, addictions and harmful experiences that have left them tired and gasping on that road, and once again pick themselves up and journey onwards.

I believe there is a wise self in all of us that finds ways to communicate distress, and we have it in us to recognize these troubling symptoms as powerful messages that can be transformed into becoming our greatest strengths. Once symptoms are recognized and patterns understood, they can illuminate a path and open the door to healing and improved function. With use of Art Therapy and narrative methods, I work with clients to externalize difficult emotions - creating a new way of thinking that facilitates the development of skills that can support individuals to navigate through life with a renewed sense of self and purpose.

The shame of not being in control of your life can feel so isolating and anxiety provoking. And the thought of talking about it with someone else can feel paralyzing at times. How did I get here? Why can't I fix this on my own? Why do I keep going back? What is wrong with me? Do I have a drinking problem? Why can't I sleep? Do I need to quit or can I just cut back? Why is my relationship so difficult? These nagging thoughts could go on and on.
