You're tossing and turning with your mind churning over What Ifs or moments that haunt. You feel stressed or overwhelmed; a sense of dread always lurking in the background. Maybe you're snapping at people or pushing them away. It might seem like everyone else is able to do things so much easier or better. Sometimes it seems like you're moving through thick fog. But it doesn't have to be this way.

Relationships are challenging in the best of times. Does the challenge feel like it is more than you can handle on your own? Do you worry that your relationship won't make it and that you'll be alone or have to start all over again? You may wonder if having a solid connection with someone supportive by your side is even possible. I can help you learn ways to improve communication and show you how to reconnect with your partner so that you feel more secure in times of need and gain confidence that your partner will be there for you when you need them most.

I am passionate about helping individuals work towards personal growth and increased satisfaction with life. I believe in a collaborative approach, that meets clients where they are at, and using compassion, respect, and humor to develop a therapeutic relationship. Using a nonjudgmental approach to help individuals more clearly see the habits of the mind that create unnecessary suffering and offer strategies to reduce their negative effect. Utilizing Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness I help client's learn skills to increase understanding of thinking and behavior patterns, and learn coping strategies for emotion regulation, stress management, communication, problem solving, and relaxation.

I offer comfort, counsel and clarity to individuals and families facing medical illness, grief, loss and bereavement, and/or life transitions. Companioning folks on these journeys allows me to help them lessen their sense of isolation, to help identify and utilize their strengths, and to manage difficult emotions. Frequently clients are overwhelmed and need help sorting through stressful feelings and situations. Once that is accomplished, much progress is made. In life transitions, identifying and touching the emotions and then re-establishing a life-plan are often the primary goals, crafted to the client's unique needs.

All of us need a space to be able to talk freely, safely, without judgement or fear of another person's reaction/response. We all have those people in our lives that provide us with a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, but what about those times when we don't feel comfortable sharing with any of those in our immediate lives? Who do we talk to when our significant other isn't hearing what we have to say? When it's something that we fear sharing with another individual so we keep it to ourselves to manifest and become anxious, depressed, angry, or self destructive thoughts? There is a space for you, to be your most vulnerable.

My most satisfying moments as a therapist are watching my clients reach the point where they no longer need me. In my work, I support my clients’ growth in awareness, sense of agency, resilience, interpersonal skills, and confidence in their abilities to meet their goals. I don’t give advice or pretend that I have all of the answers, because firstly, I don’t have them, but really because I believe that each person is the true expert of their own life.

I've always sought mentors to guide me through life's trials, and luckily found many along the way. Now I pass on the sum of their wisdom along with my own. Therapy, a process of healing, happens through shared presence and expanding awareness. It's a safe place where truth can be expressed and pain transformed. We typically cope with pain through distraction, intoxication or denial. Learning to be emotionally sober we can heal our relationships - with ourselves and others. "Process" addictions, loss, trauma and shame are respectfully addressed. Empowerment, clarity, healing and comfort with emotional intimacy are consequences.

Eating disorders are 100% curable in 80% of cases, when treated in an effective and timely manner. Anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder erode and fragment an individual's sense of Self, impairing self-care. self-regulation and self-esteem.
