About

You don’t have to go it alone. I am here to help you find your way back to living the life you want. It can happen. I'm here every step of the way. Because sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we planned. We didn’t know we would end up getting divorced, or blending families, or being a single parent, but here we are. We didn’t know we would adopt instead of birthing our own child, or be raising our grandchildren, or the difficulties we would face raising children in an LGBTQ home. But, here we are. These challenges can cause tremendous anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, confusion, sadness, and suffering. I understand.
Now, let’s imagine the other side. Everyone has adjusted to the "new normal". Relationships have shifted and grown. You feel at peace in your own skin again. You can breathe. Your children are happy and flourishing. Life has moved forward, and life is good. Let me help you find your new normal. You've already taken the first step!
I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, adolescent development, substance abuse, parenting difficulties, and relational issues. I specialize in working with non-traditional family units such as divorced, stepfamily, single parent, LGBTQ, and multi-generational.
