Our lives consist of welcome routines and happy memories, turning points and challenges. Sometimes it is painfully difficult. Perhaps you have experienced the loss of a dream or a loved one, or been unable to move past a traumatic event. Maybe life feels like a daily rut, void of meaning or joy. Even in the company of people who care about us we can feel alone, sad or overwhelmed. The good news is we can find connection, experience change and move through pain and struggle to a place of greater freedom and happiness. This kind of progress only happens when others extend to us safety, caring, respect and attentive listening.

Sometimes we get caught up in who we think we should be or how we think we should act. This makes it hard to tune in to which parts of ourselves we want to nourish. I invite clients both young and old to take an active role in learning ways to increase meaning and enjoyment in their lives. I work with adolescents, adults, and parents struggling with issues of depression and anxiety, sexuality, and gender identity. Through drawing, storytelling and play, I help kids put their feelings into words and learn effective ways to connect with others. I recognize and celebrate neurodiversity as well as expansive gender expression.

Every treatment experience is unique and decided upon by individual, couple, or family (along with myself) so they get what "they need". As a Therapist and Certified Life Coach, I provide my clients with a positive experience. Treatment should conclude with them feeling better about themselves and having met "THEIR GOALS".

My newly release book entitled: Why Can't I Be Happy: From Self-Hate to Self-Love. You don't have to be "crazy" to seek counseling. In fact, counseling, seeking new ways of looking at a problem, getting professional help, being coachable, re-framing some of the things that have been falsely thought to us, are all signs of having a healthy mind in search of the doing better. I understand that sometimes life becomes unmanageable or overwhelming; you just need help to sort it out. At times the same issues keep happening over and over and you wonder "Why me?" I will show you how to break that cycle and avoid the reoccurring patterns.

I believe that everyone could benefit from therapy to recognize and strengthen their inner resilience against the ups and downs of our day to day experience.
