Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MMFT, LMFT-A
NEW client availability in January 2022. You sometimes wonder if anyone around you could understand the battle you’ve been facing each day. It’s as if you and your partner are losing the love you once felt so deeply for each other. No matter how hard you try, it feels like you are stuck, fighting the same battles over and over again. You sometimes wonder how you even got to this place, and long for the connection and trust you once shared. But damage has been done and fear creeps in. Sometimes you both worry, “Can we heal what has been broken? Can we share that connection again?”

You are an overachiever in many ways but sometimes get overwhelmed by life. Figuring out where exactly you fit in the world, finding “your people”, and becoming who you are supposed to be takes love, support, and compassion from ourselves and others to allow us to be our best version. Therapy is a perfect addition to your support system and gives you support and education gained from years of experience and training to manage your emotions and relationships with others effectively. Because it's a lot harder to do that alone.
I enjoy helping children and adolescents discover their potential and better understand and reduce the symptoms that brought them to therapy. We work collaboratively to learn new skills to apply to all areas of their lives as well as discovering a sense of peace. I work with parents to help find more effective parenting skills that lead to less anxiety, frustration, and anger about their children or their children's choices. Together, we can develop strategies to reduce household stress and work to implement these strategies in multiple personal areas.
When challenged with keeping up with it all, it is not uncommon to lose sight of who we really are, or what we really want. Through a collaborative and engaging therapeutic relationship where your unique interests are prioritized, perspective & balance can be restored. My niche is working with college students and young professionals, who are motivated to get the most out of life by discovering their authentic selves, defining a road map for future, and developing skills to cope with stress & adversity. Although my work is grounded in evidence-based practices, I have been told that sessions feel like talking to a wise friend.
As women we can sometimes relate to feeling disconnected during different stages of our lives. Whether you're a new mom or experiencing a combination of different life transitions. Therapy is a process of deconstructing unhealthy and maladaptive patterns. These can be in our thoughts, behaviors, or environment. The joy of therapy is working on a healthier and more solid foundation. The base of that foundation is your connection to your core-self. Having a healthy relationship with your core-self gives you the opportunity to build self-acceptance. This is the place where confidence, self-worth, and self-esteem live.
I appreciate that you are seeking to make yourself the very best you can be. Often the first step is often the hardest, and I hope that I can be someone that can help you along your counseling journey. I enjoy working with adults, children, adolescents, and families that are seeking help with life transitional adjustments, critical illness, coping support, grief/loss, and anxiety. My focus is to build on the strengths and coping of each individual and to provide support and encouragement throughout their counseling experience.
Are you looking for an alternative to traditional medication for yourself or your child? Looking for a more effective and healthier way to handle cognitive and/or emotional struggles from either a head injury, a learning disorder, a mood disorder, relationship issues, work/school pressures, or a combination of challenges? Ready to feel more stable and function at your best on a daily basis? Is it time to feel more in control and less out of control?
I know that you are suffering. I know that you just want to be happy with your life and yourself. I also know that above all else, you do not want to be alone anymore. I cannot promise you that I can help you solve everything; I cannot promise that the world and other people will seem friendlier after meeting with me. I cannot promise that therapy is not a long and sometimes painful process... However, I can promise that you will be treated with acceptance and respect for you and your struggles.
Are you tired of having the same fights with your partner and not ever getting resolution or change? Are you feeling disconnected from your partner and wish you could regain the warmth and excitement that you once felt? I specialize in helping couples who are feeling disillusioned in their relationship, or feel disconnected from their partner and stuck in their patterns of conflict. As a Marriage and Family Therapist with 33 years experience and advanced specialized training in relationship therapy, it has been my honor to work with couples as well as individuals experiencing difficulties in their relationships.
I am a Grief Counselor. This is my niche and specialty as a psychotherapist. I am best suited to work with clients who need professional support and educational resources to help facilitate the grief process. This is a time of upheaval and change - as we struggle to cope with the death of a loved one. The death may be sudden and unexpected or it may result from a chronic/long-term illness. I use an integrative therapy approach that is personalized to meet the unique needs of each individual.

Reaching out to a therapist does not mean that something is wrong with you. On the contrary, it simply means that you may need assistance in some areas of your life.

Hi there! Sometimes life can be emotionally and mentally exhausting. We give so much energy to our roles as a father, mother, wife, co-worker, daughter, son, etc, that we forget to pour back into ourselves. I believe self-care is not an indulgence, but a means of self preservation. Allow me to provide a safe haven where you can just focus on YOU! Stress is inevitable, but change is possible, its time to put you first!

A drowning amount of stress settles in while you hope your kid with Autism can just get through one day of school without a call home about their behaviors. Your kid’s anxiety shoots through the roof when overstimulated and it takes forever to calm down. Your frustration builds because nothing is working. You want your kid to be able to make friends, tolerate the word "no," build skills, or not have a meltdown when you serve dinner and the peas touch the fish. Typical parenting strategies aren’t working and it’s all just too much. People start blaming you as the parent and “I wouldn’t allow that in my house” becomes all too common.

Carl Rogers stated, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." You may feel overcome with a lack of control over your own emotions or actions, or maybe you feel at a loss for how to support your child while continuing to form a strong and healthy relationship. I strive to help you or your child work towards authenticity while learning to effectively explore and cope with strong emotions and develop positive communication skills. I am confident in the power of cultivating these vital skills at an early age and empowering caregivers to encourage continued growth.
Are you and your child having trouble communicating? Are you met with eye rolls and long sighs? Do you see them going through a hard time, long to help but don't know how? I am here for you. Are you a teen or young adult who feels like the world is on their shoulders? Are you wondering the type of person you want to be, and what your future will be like in high school and beyond? Do you feel undone by anxiety or depression of the culture of perfectionism around you? Please call today!
Life can be complicated and challenging at times. Feeling like you may need a mental health tune up? Or, maybe experiencing something painful and trying to avoid the sorrow?

Joy, stress, grief and everything in between...together, we can work through presenting circumstances for improved quality of life and redefined day-to-day living.
I am a passionate therapist with a love for working with children, adolescents and young adults. My goal in therapy is to help clients find their identity even with a new diagnosis and to teach them that they don't have to be controlled by their symptoms. Therapy is a wonderful resource if you are feeling lost, confused, unheard, defeated, worthless, hopeless or just stuck in life. Through therapy, I work not only with the client but also the family in order to find a resolution to problematic behaviors or improve overall parenting and communication skills with children.
