"You may already know that something isn't working - either noticing something you don't want (anxiety, depression, loneliness, addiction) or something you do want (better communication, improved relationships, peace). Perhaps you haven't found a solution to manage things quite the way you want. My goal is to help increase awareness and insight, working with you to understand what is going on now, it's impact, and support efforts toward your goal to improve relationships, develop skills, resolve conflicts, increase self-esteem, heal, and grow. I believe therapy offers wonderful opportunities to move toward the change you seek."

"Often we seek out counseling when we're not feeling like ourselves, we feel out of control, we struggle to manage life's changes, or we feel dissatisfied with our life's direction. Sometimes we just feel stuck. Regardless of the reason, we naturally question change but can be unsure of the process. I provide a collaborative space to define that process and connect the person you see yourself as to the person you aspire to be. As a therapist and musician, my eclectic style and strategies are focused on building self-respect, healthy boundaries, insight, confidence, and self-compassion."

"I offer mindfulness-based and holistic services to those affected by stress, anxiety, depression, or various unwanted addictive behaviors. Stressors can be from work, relationships, or concerns about the World, among others. Addictive cycles can include drugs or alcohol, food, or destructive romantic patterns. Within the context of mindfulness-based approaches I have studied in both college and spiritual settings, these behaviors are seen to be driven by unconscious, automatic pressures that can be brought into awareness and resolved. They fill a void in one's life that can be replaced by a sense of wholeness, completeness, autonomy, and authenticity."

Do you feel like you have lost your sense of identity while juggling such obligations? In a world full of unrealistic and forced expectations, women often are accused of being rebellious, guilty or selfish when they choose to focus on themselves and their needs. Secretly battling and wounded, many women find themselves to be depressed, anxious, angry, disappointed and unfulfilled."
