Using a variety of treatment methods, my practice focuses on helping individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment, self-esteem, communication difficulties, loss, specific phobias, sleep hygiene and intimacy issues.
***I currently have daytime openings. No evenings or weekends.*** At times, life can present us with obstacles that are difficult to navigate and though we know we need to make changes we don’t always know how to begin. We all need support and an empathetic ear and with that we are all capable of adapting. I have worked with children, families and adults for more than 20 years as they have adjusted to life’s circumstances. Over that time I have seen the impact that talking, listening and empathy can have in our lives.

I have training and experience working with clients who have experienced trauma, including traumatic loss and mass violence, as well as those dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, and life transitions.
When life feels overwhelming, your day to day stressors add up, or past experiences cause you difficulties, choosing to seek therapy can be a pivotal step towards feeling like yourself again. I work collaboratively with clients to help them chart a path forward that feels healthy and acknowledges the impact of all of life’s experiences. Therapy is an opportunity to explore old patterns, create new ones, and to find your voice. Together, we will create a space where you feel safe enough to put down your walls and explore what is working in your life, what is not, and how to get you to where you want to be.
