"I primarily work with parents/parents-to-be and families with young children. I empower parents to trust their instincts and feel comfortable with their own parenting decisions. There is an overwhelming amount of expert information available and no shortage of opinions! I use my expertise to help parents negotiate all the advice and information and make the best choices for their family. For those of us who weren't fortunate enough to have positive parenting role models, the guidance of an understanding professional like myself can be so helpful in supporting you to become the parent you want to be!"

"I consider myself an insightful therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. I also have seen therapy help improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at our interactions, relationship, and your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me.The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves."

"I understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment."

"Fact is, the past often gets in the way of living life to its fullest. Do you feel emotionally drained, empty inside with thoughts of self-loathing? Maybe you are consumed with shame over memories or behaviors you cannot seem to control. Loss of sleep and an overall sense of irritability can overwhelm any sense of normalcy. This is not the real you-but how to get out from under it? Breakthroughs happen... when digging deep one needs an experienced hand to shine a light."

"As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come."

"The challenges of growing up in today's rapidly changing society are enormous. Children need to be equipped with skills for survival and growth that were never before imagined. I focus on teaching self-healing and self-control techniques that empower youth to develop the emotional skills necessary for a happy and successful life and realize their potential throughout their lifetime. Using the positive power of their imagination, children learn to reduce stress, deal effectively with anger and frustration, reduce stomachaches, headaches, and tics, cope with divorce and death, reduce parental and sibling conflicts, increase concentration, sleep peacefully, and more."
