The family is the foundation upon which we develop our understanding of how to interact and form relationships with people.

Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, MFT, NCC, ACS, LPC
Feeling emotionally overwhelmed at some point is something to which most people can relate. I understand that sometimes life circumstances can leave one feeling conflicted, stressed and even hopeless and helpless. However, there is hope and there is help. As a professional, I have witnessed time and again the power of accurate information, solid resources, and compassionate support to transform even the most dismal circumstances. It is my strong desire to bring this powerful combination to all those with whom I work, as they discover more deeply their own inner resources and strengths.
I believe that we all have an instinct toward growth and healing, and my experience with clients continues to affirm that with good support, everyone has the innate capacity to change. I trust and respect clients by bringing my genuine curiosity, deep sense of acceptance, and keen intuition to what they share with me. Troubling events and traumas happen to all of us, but as we explore old beliefs and process through difficult emotions, it is possible to alter those ingrained habits that prevent growth, and move into a more free experience of yourself. I have an open, relaxed, interactive style based on a holistic perspective.
It is my objective to support an individual in the process of focusing on health and well-being to embrace personal strength and empowerment. It is through the therapeutic process we will identify your capacity, with your own unique resourcefulness and resiliency, to assemble and promote positive change in daily life. I have worked in various levels of care within the field of counseling and can attest to the power that therapy can have in a person's life whether the challenges be situational or more persistent.
My career has included working with children, teens, young adults and families in homes, schools, and community settings. I have expertise in supporting individuals who are experiencing difficulty adjusting to significant life stressors or transitions. Specialty areas include; working with children diagnosed with developmental disabilities, problematic behaviors, family systems experiencing divorce, are blended, or have encountered other disruptions, and supporting professionals in varying stages of career development.
I have worked in mental health with children and families for 13 years and have been a therapist for 9 years. I have a special passion for helping others of all ages. I view counseling as a collaborative relationship between the client and counselor. This collaborative relationship allows the client and therapist to work together to address issues the client is facing through the development of mutually agreed upon clinical and personal goals.
I am a Neuropsychologist and Certified School Psychologist with over 20 years of experience. In my practice, I specialize in providing evaluations and diagnostic and treatment services to children and adults in four main areas: head injuries (including concussions evaluation and management), ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and neurological issues, including learning problems. Neuropsychology is a branch of clinical psychology that understands behavior and development as it relates to brain functioning. Understanding an individual's unique neurocognitive profile helps us understand their needs as well as their strengths that can be used to help improve those needs.
I work with female clients, 13yrs and older. As women, young and old, we are multitaskers, we take care of others while neglecting ourselves. Self-care--self-love is foreign. Many self-medicate with food, alcohol, pills, shopping, social media, vaping, relationships, the list can go on. This creates a cycle of shame, remorse, and regret. We realize... I am not happy-how come? The women I work with are trying to answer that question. They are looking for someone else or something else to make them happy. An external fix/distraction to avoid feeling upset. And yet the outcome continues to be is anxiety, depression, substance abuse
Our clientele are C-Suite Executives, Physicians, Business Owners, Actors, Rock Stars, and Professionals of all industries (or their families) who are looking for psychotherapy that exceeds expectations. We've worked hard to to provide the atmosphere that you've been looking for with clinicians whose sole purpose is to help you move forward.
I view each child, teen, young adult, and family as unique. That uniqueness is why I draw from different therapy modalities to support emotional well-being. Anxiety and depression often stem from complicated interpersonal relationships, lack of self-confidence, and feeling unable to control events in our lives. Our joint effort can help you attain the freedom to make positive choices in your life. I bring clinical experience offered in a genuine, nonjudgmental, confidential atmosphere. Drawing from cognitive behavior approaches, insight therapy, and mindfulness practice, my goal is to provide tools to help you in improving your state of mind.
My training, my experience, and my teaching and supervising have helped me to appreciate and apprehend the many and complex ways in which early experience becomes internalized and structured in one's internal world, and consequently becomes manifested and repeated in the external world of one's life and relationships. It is my goal to provide psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy of sufficient depth, duration and thoughtfulness to facilitate the mastery of emotional problems, the restoration and enhancement of self-esteem, and the fostering of emotional resilience, creativity and self-discovery.
Fear, anxiety, and doubt block out clear thinking. This can happen to any of us. We can all have "personal demons". And as human beings we all react the same way, often retreating to the more primal aspects that existed in our species before reason. The "Three F's" emerge : Fight, Flight, Freeze, those primal responses to trauma. As these responses existed before cognition, logic and reasoning are often short-circuited. Before we know it, other priorities are put aside or forgotten. We are now "surviving" daily, rather than "thriving" and benefiting from full life experience, fearing we lack the tools to manage these obstacles.
Reflecting back on 25 years of experience in practice as a licensed psychologist I am deeply appreciative of the trust placed in me by both current and former clients with whom I've worked, or who have referred their family or friends. I am told it is my easy-going, non-judgemental and comfortable style that helps my clients immediately sense my ability to connect with them and feel understood, supported and safe. While always professional, compassionate and sensitive, I believe my sense of humor also provides 'good medicine' and contributes to my ability to help others heal and grow.
Are you interested in connecting to and healing your mind, body, and spirit? Do you want to find healthier, natural ways to cope with anxiety and life stressors? Do you feel stuck and unsure where to go next? Let me guide you on your journey in connecting with your deepest self. I am a compassionate, open-minded, and empathetic therapist and I offer a safe space for individuals to process, integrate, and heal.
