My compassion for all beings began long ago and has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. It is truly the only reason I practice counseling. I am profoundly aware of the vast amounts of suffering we all experience throughout our lives. Experiencing and releasing this pain is the goal. I believe in the emergence of self knowledge, positive energy and right action as fear and resistance are diminished. I prefer not to label conditions and symptoms ,but strive to fully understand and appreciate the individual sitting before me. * The additional stress of our times cannot be ignored or minimized*

When working with children and their families I strive to create a fun and comfortable environment while developing the tools to address the challenges being faced. I believe therapy should be a creative, practical and unique experience based on the strengths of the individual and family. Caregivers and family play an essential role in their child's life and development and are therefore often a regular part of the sessions. When working with children I utilize a variety of different strategies including play and game based interventions such as stories/books, board/card games, crafts, role-play, and sensory activities.

As a holistic-minded therapist who works with both individuals and couples, I see the counseling process as an opportunity to examine old ways of relating to oneself and explore new ways of interacting. I use a whole-body approach to guide clients in becoming more self-aware and finding the strength to initiate long-term positive change for themselves. With couples, my goal is to improve intimacy and commitment using a research-based approach that identifies your strengths, and models healthy relationship patterns. I will walk with you as we navigate creating new interactions and a happier, stronger partnership.

I believe the human capacity for change and growth is incredible. Difficult experiences, negative environments, and challenging relationships can distort our connections with ourselves and others. These disconnections can create problems, and I see relationships as powerful change agents--particularly our relationship with ourselves. When clients are given the opportunity to feel heard and understood, healing and growth are possible. To do this, I believe it is vital for us to establish a strong relationship to support the change you would like to make. I provide culturally sensitive therapy to motivated individuals and couples.

I believe therapy should take place in a safe, supportive, empowering, and confidential environment. Clients are active in the process, exploring areas including feelings, beliefs, and behaviors while working through personal history and identifying aspects of their lives they wish to change. Clients take a journey to better understanding of themselves and others. We will set personal goals, and work together toward desired change through reflection, processing and skill building. When working with children I work with the child individually and also invite parents/guardians into session to learn skills to utilize at home to support the child with change.

No one understands what you are going through like you do. It's hard to focus on life when we are grieving a loss or feeling unfulfilled. Often, all we need is a person who helps us navigate our difficult feelings and find motivation in moving forward. I enjoy working with both adults and children with histories of complex trauma, addictions, grief, sexual health, and complex medical histories. With previous work experience in healthcare, I use a realistic situational approach that focuses on empowerment strategies that help adults and children navigate the difficult stages of both grief and daily life.

**NOW ACCEPTING AETNA INSURANCE. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant and deliver yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face.

Many of us experience anxiety, depression, or trauma with a desire to be relieved. Life stressors may leave a lasting impression on our well-being. Disturbing experiences can influence our beliefs about the world and ourselves. Perhaps you find yourself desiring connection yet thinking, "people can't be trusted" or self-critical and thinking, "I'm not good enough.” You may be finding it difficult to cope or that your stress management strategies work well, at least in the short-term but come at a price. My goal is to create the safe space necessary for welcoming pain with nurturance.
