Change is rarely easy, however having the right tools can make all the difference. Working with adults, families & couples, and adolescents my goal is to help build the life you want. I work to provide a safe space with the support and tools you need to feel happier, accomplish your goals, and move forward. I aim to help people get more of what they want out of life, focusing on real world positive changes with managing stress, building healthy relationships, improving overall health and well-being, and being confident and comfortable dealing with the unexpected in life.
Overcoming obstacles or major life changes can be extremely stressful. I understand that being your authentic self and building\maintaining strong connections are important elements of living a meaningful life. Acknowledging, understanding, and healing traumatic experiences is painful to do, especially alone. Trauma can cause anxiety, depression, hopelessness, and broken relationships.
Not accepting new clients. Therapy is a place where people can learn to identify core issues and limiting beliefs, and work toward resolution and healing. My passion for counseling comes from my core belief that there is inherent goodness and beauty in each person, as well as my own journey of faith and healing. As a therapist it is my privilege to work alongside individuals and families experiencing a wide rage of difficulties. My clients include individuals struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, self esteem, grief, loss and other difficulties, often resulting from unresolved trauma and life challenges.
I conduct psycho-educational evaluations, using a multitude of the most advanced assessment tools to ensure the most comprehensive results and recommendations for parents and educators. My expert knowledge of special education law (IDEA), disability law (ADA), and public school systems has been paramount in assisting families navigate and access the services necessary for their child’s academic, social and emotional growth. I subscribe to the Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic model of treatment which is an evidenced-based treatment modality used in individual therapy.

Change is a choice. I believe everyone, at some point in our lives, can benefit from counseling and make positive changes. Life happens and it can be very, very difficult and even totally overwhelming from time to time. Counseling can help you navigate through those challenging times no matter the circumstances. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, overcoming abuse or a history of violence, behavioral issues, grief, difficulty adjusting, or just need to learn more healthy and effective coping skills, do consider giving counseling a try. If you want to change and are willing to truly try, that is all it takes.

My clients are those who want to focus on creating healthier habits, both physically and mentally. I and clients believe that all of the parts of the self are interconnected, from physical symptoms to emotions, and social interactions. Living a healthy life means having a balance between your physical, mental, and social wellbeing.
You feel discouraged, stuck, overwhelmed. You have people in your life, but somehow still feel alone. You want to feel like yourself again, but you need guidance. Imagine what it would be like to have clarity about your emotions, confidence in your decisions, and compassion for yourself. Imagine the relief you could feel by healing old wounds and experiences that seems to hold you back.

I am passionate about meeting clients where they are at. I believe in providing a safe and supportive setting where my clients can process and work through any struggles they are facing. I work primarily with adults going through depression, anxiety, life transition issues, infertility, grief and loss. My approach emphasizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Strategies and mindfulness to assist clients in developing the skills and ability to deal with all of life's transitions.
My sense of humor is big part part of my counseling style. I take my work with clients seriously, but there are times when therapy needs to include some humor. In addition to counseling, I also provide life coaching for clients who want to make changes but aren't sure where to start. I work particularly well with clients who are nervous or skeptical about the idea of counseling. I realize that therapy can be a significant expense, so I run my practice as efficiently as possible. All scheduling, forms, notes, and billing are online, so we can make the best use of our time together.
