My ideal client is curious, growth inspired, and has experienced trauma. I work with codependency, those that have been effected by narcissism, addiction, low self worth and generational trauma. I have a fondness and offer my support to those that are parents, co-parents and caretakers of children, or those that can not take care of themselves. I enjoy working with people with relationships as their focus, walking them through dating and the search for a partner or those that feel stuck in their relationships and need a space to share their confusion, fear and not knowing.

My belief as a therapist is that we all possess innate and unique strengths that are best highlighted when we feel supported. This support is the impetus for change and for developing a stronger sense of resilience. My purpose as a therapist is to support you in finding your own ways to reach peace, wholeness, and tranquility. In doing so, you will help improve your relationships with others.

You are doing the best you can. If you could snap your fingers and stop the obsessive thoughts and worries you would, right? If could make yourself quit retelling negatives stories about yourself and your life, that would have already happened, right? The truth is life is as challenging as it is remarkable and respecting how trauma, abuse, neglect, or illness is showing up in your body and experience is paramount to healing. Trauma can show up as patterns of protection that keep us stuck in feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, hopelessness, and fear. And keep us from enjoying secure and loving relationships with others.

Although I work with a variety of clients, my primary speciality is children (and their parents) who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems, using playful and positive means to help them with anger management, expression of feelings, and relationships with friends and family. I always welcome the opportunity to work with parents, families and couples under stress. Let's face it: aren't we all? No situation is beyond hope; my clients leave our sessions with real insight and tools with which to move beyond their troubling issues.

It’s hard to be human. There are no manuals on how to deal with our thoughts and emotions. Sitting with vulnerability can be scary and uncomfortable. As a Client-Centered clinician I plan to meet you in the here and now and help get you to where you want to be in a holistically happy and healthy manner. We all could use a bit of guidance, and at times, a push in the right direction.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a valley, feeling depleted and uninspired. We realize we have been stuck in the same cycles, having exhausted all of the tools that once worked and unsure why change feels impossible. Sometimes we just need someone to see the best in us, to hold hope when we're barely hanging on. Therapy shouldn't be something we dread, but rather an opportunity to feel encouraged and poured into, inspired and deeply understood.

As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.
