I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

You're not sure why, but you find yourself feeling anxious and empty when you wake up in the morning. As a young adult in your 20's or 30's, your life looks pretty good on paper. But something is missing. You're not certain who you are anymore, and you are questioning your path, your relationships, or maybe your day-to-day grind. Lately, you've been doubting your self-worth and contribution. Or maybe a little voice has always been there, disparaging what you do, what you say, and who you are. You are tired of feeling muzzled, muted, and half-alive.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a variety of natural transitions, some of which challenge our ability to cope. Death, divorce, life threatening illness, career change, marriage, becoming a parent, spiritual or existential crisis...to name a few. In an attempt to adjust, many of us experience emotional distress. I would be honored to work with you to provide support. I enjoy working with people of all ages including young children and teens. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, and engaged play, my goal is to make each client feel prioritized, heard, cared about, valued, and nurtured throughout their process.

Entering into therapy can be a big decision and confusing process. I offer direction that can help you determine your best course for meaningful and effective change. Through attentiveness, compassion, and collaboration, I focus on helping individuals, couples, & children gain awareness of themselves, and provide an avenue that leads toward personal exploration and healing. In my class "Creating Healthy Relationships with Kids", parents and caregivers learn additional ways to communicate with their child, appropriate limit setting, and effective problem solving rather than punishment.

Perfectionism, procrastination, social withdrawal, and oppositional behaviors can be a common part of child development in today's culture of hyper-achievement combined with technology. Child and adolescent behaviors viewed as problematic are frequently communications to those closest to them about a difficulty they are experiencing in their world.
