My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

Since it is our unconscious, spirit part that we are seeking to heal, we must access this part through a variety of right-brain techniques that communicate with the unconscious. The goal of this therapy is to get the defense system out of the way so that we begin to operate out of our true sense of self, begin to create boundaries, make choices truly reflective of our own wants and needs. We then find that we no longer need to rely upon the destructive coping techniques previously used to protect us from the awareness that we are not integrated.

Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life: physically, emotionally, or spiritually? It is when one of these aspects of a person’s life becomes out of balance that we begin to struggle in our lives. We may experience chronic pain, illness, obesity, depression, anxiety, stress, or PTSD. With children we often notice behavioral problems. As a LCSW with over 20 years of experience, I firmly believe that balance must be restored to create harmony within the whole person. My commitment to you is to walk beside you in your journey.

There's this lingering sense of negativity, self-doubt, and not being good enough. Stress is accumulating and the demands you're facing are outweighing your resources. Your drive to reach goals, connect with others, and enjoy life is declining. You notice that same cycle of perfectionism, anxiety, and shame repeating itself, causing you to feel trapped, overwhelmed, and powerless. It's not just affecting your mind. It's also taking a toll on your body and your relationships. Avoid the burnout. Make a choice to make a change.

You lay awake staring at the ceiling; wondering how you can feel so alone next to the person you love. When things are great - they're great! Lately, however, the good days are few and far between. Communication is at a standstill, widening the space that is growing between you. Silence is the theme that looms over the house. You're simply coexisting, longing for intimacy, but unable to navigate the chasm that separates you. You ask, “Is this what our future looks like?” Throwing yourself into hobbies, sneaking glances at one another behind your phone screen from across the room. You both need more than this, but where do you begin?
