Do you feel angry all the time and aren't sure why? Are you having recurring nightmares? Intrusive memories and thoughts? Do you avoid activities and places because they remind you of a painful experience? Has it been months or years and you are not getting any better? We chose to serve our country with a career in the military. We trained to be strong. What happens when, despite our best efforts, we are injured? At times we need professional guidance to maximize our recovery. I am a combat veteran, military spouse and mother.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions. I work with trauma survivors, first responders, law enforcement, and military families. I also specialize in couples counseling.
