I am a relational therapist who supports people in their desire to live their best lives by tapping into their inner strengths and learning new strategies. I enjoy working creatively and collaboratively in individual and family sessions that focus on the whole person and the systems of which they are a part. Life is complex, and I bring a realistic, empathetic, and non-judgemental presence to witness and support you as you explore whatever brings you to therapy. I specialize in trauma at any age and working with parents who are struggling to understand their child's difficult behaviors.

You have heard that therapy can greatly help with coping skills, dealing with long- standing problems; and stress and pain management. Many people are focused on day to day issues relating to depression, anxiety, and PTSD; and are trying to cope with these in the best possible way. Many businesses, colleges, and out-patient medical clinics are closed, affecting daily life, and chronic pain and illness. All types of mood disorders, anxiety, stresses, economic worries, and transitions feel more pressing right now. You'd like to feel better about your life and what you are going through right now.

What do we have to gain from therapy? Therapy can help with a variety of challenges. For some it can help with improving communication within our relationships. Therapy can offer us time to reflect on what it is we want, are needing, or what we feel is missing. Therapy can also assist with understanding what we can do as parents to effectively guide our children and teens in challenging times. Above all, therapy offers another set of trained eyes to help gain the clarity needed to move forward.

Making the choice to start therapy is not always an easy task and requires a lot of courage to ask for help. Whether your suffering stems from substance use issues, loss, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem, know that you are not alone. We all are trying to do the best we can to take care of ourselves but sometimes that can fall short. The good news is, therapy provides the space to reflect on old patterns, behaviors, and begin to ask ourselves, "Is this working for me anymore?" If the answer is no, let's take a look at it.

From the outside it looks like you have it all together but on the inside you feel like you are not good enough, stuck, powerless, or isolated from the world around you. You have a continued struggle with anxiety, depression, or relationship issues that increasingly make daily life more difficult. It is time to stop being controlled by the effects of traumatic experiences or abuse from the past but have not felt like anyone can help you work through them. Maybe you are working through rejection or significant life changes due to coming out as LGBTQ.
