I am well-trained and experienced in working with PTSD and chronic traumas, anxiety, depression and sexual abuse.
Do you feel as if you are no longer in control of your own life? Feel stuck and cannot see how to move forward? Perhaps, trouble in a relationship has escalated. Or job stress has increased because of new demands on your time or a threat of unemployment. Maybe plans and goals are now on hold and you’ve lost motivation. Or you find your typically patient self has been replaced by an angry short-tempered self. Whatever it is you are experiencing, you know life is not going the way you want it. Let's sort through things together. Your life can be better!

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

Therapy can be an incredible resource to discover and navigate the “why’s” underneath our obstructive thoughts, confusing behaviors and disconnected relationships. It can also provide space for healing as we learn how to become more deeply rooted in who we are and how we want to show up for the life we’ve been given.

Hello. I am so glad you’re here. I understand and have deep appreciation for what it takes to be here. Across my time in a variety of mental health work I have found this piece of research holds true-The strongest indicator of how much you get out of therapy depends on the therapeutic relationship. While I trust you will do important work once you meet your therapist, this is a vital step. My approach is focused on building tools, language, habits and behavior that supports a connection between the cognitive mind and the emotional self in order to create a sustainable deep change. I focus on sustainable rather than immediate change.
