Is your life being restricted by fear, worry, phobias, shyness, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, or repetitive/compulsive behaviors? Do you feel that your "comfort zone" has been shrinking, you've been avoiding things that you want/need to do, or that you get "stuck in your head" and can't be present in your life? There's good news: things can get better. My goal is to always bring a compassionate, authentic attitude to therapy that respects each client’s individuality, while utilizing powerful, evidence-based practices that have been proven to work.

Relationships, no matter what kind make us who we are. We can not know who we are if we don’t know of those around us.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to distress. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of control in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, feeling productive, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

As a massage therapist for the past 24 years, I've noticed how people hold patterns of pain, trauma, and negative energy in their bodies. Now as a therapist I help people who may be carrying the weight of their past, feel their life is out of balance, or who are not living up to their full potential. If you'd like to relate better to those around you, learn new skills to change behaviors, and improve your overall wellness I can help.
