At some point, most of us will live through a difficult life situation. It could be a difficult job, challenging relationship issues, family issues, issues from childhood, financial hardships, an adjustment to medical diagnosis, death of a loved one—or perhaps a pain inflicted by another person in the form of assault or abuse.As a clinical social worker I have been trained to pay attention to strengths and challenges in all aspects of your life. I am also attuned to the internal conflicts, both conscious and out of awareness, which may be at the root of painful feelings, non-productive behaviors, and relationship difficulties.

I am particularly passionate about working with women who deal with issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, adoption and foster parenting, infertility, pregnancy loss, infidelity, sexual identity, spiritual integration, trauma, sexual abuse, and grief.
Life brings painful experiences that can pull us away from becoming who we were intended to be. Whatever the source of your pain, there is grace, comfort, and healing for you. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to heal, and in the courage of my clients as they pursue wholeness. I am passionate about creating a safe space for my clients to explore the problems that keep them from being intimately connected with themselves and the people they love. I use a whole person approach; trying to be attentive to the synergy of body, mind, and spirit in the client's experience.
