In the process, my clients have learned to control their thinking, reduce unnecessary stress in their lives, build the satisfying relationships that they are searching for, learn how to act on real threats, control irrational fears and reduce anxiety.
Feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless? You're at the point that you've tried everything you can think of and nothing has worked? Are you feeling more and more stressed? Whether a long-standing mental health problem or something that has just cropped up, interfering with your important relationships and daily activities, I can help by introducing solutions and supporting you as you work your way to the life you want. A lot of times, simple changes in the way you communicate with your significant others can improve bad relationships quickly, improve your self-esteem, and get you back on the path of accomplishing your life goals.

For more than 20 years I’ve helped teens and adults navigate anxiety, depression, and trauma in healthy and productive ways. I bring an understanding of behavior, relationships, and adversity and how they can play out in negative ways in everyday life. I love working with couples to help them find a way to improve communication and strengthen their bond. Together we work towards moving forward together or kindly apart. I bring years of working with the LGBTQIA+community helping folks celebrate who they are while at the same time acknowledging the stress and unique family factors this amazing community deals with on a daily basis.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

“Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” The poet Mary Oliver nails us with this question. Not being afraid of the wild, and finding your way to the precious, requires your most curious, present and compassionate self. When that self eludes you—which it does for all of us now and then—it’s lonely and frightening. Where did your clarity and intuition go? Why can’t you feel yourself anymore?

You're tired & not sure where to turn. You're good at keeping up appearances, but it's wearing you down... If you can relate to this, you're not alone and you're not screwed up.
