There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation.

My work is focused on initiating healing from the moment you walk through my door. And I recognize it takes a lot of courage to be in the room, with me as your therapist, while beginning this journey of deeper understanding of self and change. Together we will look inward at the fragmented pieces of your life, which can often be intimidating, but you won't be made to feel alone in this process. I will help you put the pieces of your life together so you can develop a stronger sense of self.

I am a licensed clinical social worker, with two distinct practice areas. I work with tweens, teens and their families to help them stay connected to themselves and each other through the adolescent years. I trust the wisdom of youth and create a space where their authentic voice can be heard and their self-esteem nurtured. I believe that conversations with a caring professional can support 11-18-year-olds, and their families, to navigate, sadness, anxiety, grief, addiction, life transitions, social media usage, self-esteem, body image, and social relationships.

You're feeling overwhelmed. Anxiety, worry, sadness are bubbling up despite your best efforts. You can usually calm down and feel better on your own but right now, you're not sure where to turn. You may feel like no one will get you, or will know what to do to help you out. It seems like everyone around you is doing just fine, and that you are the only one feeling so scared on the inside.

I work with women struggling with their own secrets; the kind that burn a hole in the heart and soul. Women who know they're in pain, confused, or deeply challenged by their emotions or lack of balance in their lives. They may not have close friends or a strong, supportive or local family, and sometimes feel like outsiders, alienated, or like no one understands them. I often work with self-proclaimed "empaths", "introverts", caregivers, or women who isolate themselves for a variety of reasons. I help women who seek self compassion and want to know self love. We'll uncover your strengths, your true self, and empower you to heal.
