You ask yourself, "will it ever stop?" The racing thoughts...the knots in your stomach...the sense of urgency or lack of motivation...the paralyzing self-doubt and overwhelm. You’re easily triggered by those around you. It feels like you're on an emotional roller coaster. That intrusive voice is telling you that you’re not enough—you’ll never measure up. Perfectionism and procrastination keep you stuck. You find yourself in an unfulfilling job or relationship yet again. You long for connection, but are afraid of rejection. You seek comfort with alcohol, food, social media, work or shopping, but the feelings keep coming back.

My passion is working with those who feel stuck- who desire change and healing, regardless of what life circumstance they have experienced, or stage of life they are in.

I believe clients are the true experts of their lives, we all need support, and an unbiased perspective can be helpful in navigating life's challenges. I have been practicing for over 10 years and have extensive training in trauma, including Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and in Sex Therapy.

As a Registered Play Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor, I use play therapy tools to develop the heart, mind and soul of children. After working with children and families in private practice and in school settings for many years, my passion is to empower my clients through play. Through their natural language, play, children can express their emotions and start to heal. I specialize in working with children ages 4 years to 12 years but can work with all ages and adults. Common issues I treat are: trauma, fear, anxiety, anger, loss and grief, ADHD, change in their families, and social anxiety, various school issues.

I believe therapy works best and is most successful when there is a willingness to risk being vulnerable with a safe other. If you are someone who is motivated to learn more about themselves and take active steps to change this might be the right fit for you. My focus area and experience is working with women and both premarital and established couples. I offer deeper internal work through both IFS and Brainspotting. The client who will benefit best from the way I do therapy are those who are naturally self-reflective and those who find value in metaphor and symbolic language.

NOTE: Email is the quickest way to reach me. Are you going through something that others do not seem to get or understand? Does a loss seem to be affecting you far more than the "normal stages" of grief? Perhaps you find that you cannot get past certain images in your mind of a moment in your life. Time and time again you are not able to find relief. On top of that, others do not seem to understand why you are affected so deeply. You struggle to communicate the thoughts and feelings that consume you.

As a perfectionist, overachieving woman, you have worked hard to get to where you are today. Hyper-independence is your middle name. But even with all your achievements, you still worry it's not enough. You constantly push yourself to be better and achieve more, rarely stopping to celebrate your wins. You struggle with feelings of self-doubt, anxiety, and overwhelm, and find it difficult to turn off your thoughts and relax. You feel like you are constantly on the brink of burn out. You may have unresolved childhood trauma that continues to impact you. You know something needs to change, you just aren't sure of what or how.

I help folks with anxiety and complex trauma move from avoiding their emotions towards processing them, from being highly self-critical with a harsh inner voice towards self-compassion and kind curiosity, from emotional reactivity towards emotional responsiveness. I do my best work with individuals and couples who experience repeated patterns of feeling and behavior but can’t seem to get off the merry-go-round, who feel disconnected from themselves and others, who may struggle with perfectionism and want so much to be seen and known by the people they love, but are fearful of showing up as their most genuine selves.

Hello everyone! Thanks for taking time to read my profile. I help disconnected couples, restless entrepreneurs, and individuals stifled by anxiety and depression. When I entered this profession, I realized that everyone on the planet needs a safe place to go where they can be completely themselves...and say anything they care to say. At times we need to chat with someone who's not part of our family or friend circles, someone with the training and skills to navigate confusing thoughts, emotions, relationships, careers, and matters of faith.

Treatment for psychological disorders is better than ever. I specialize in offering new, evidence-based treatment options for OCD and related/co-occuring conditions that are more gentle and affirming than traditional approaches. How you experience OCD can be influenced by ADHD, Autism, racism, LGBTQ+ identity, trauma history, substance use and other contextual and identity factors. I'm here to listen with humility and acceptance (no thoughts are too shameful or taboo), make a thoughtful diagnosis, and gently guide you through science-backed treatment. Best of all, we can do it all from the comfort of home via videoconferencing.

My approach to therapy is collaborative and relational. While woundings often occur in relationship, I also believe that healing happens in relationship. In navigating life woundings, we join together as a team to create safety, security, and trust in order to understand what brought you into the therapy. A firm believer in the power of discovering one’s own voice and core identity, my hope is that clients leave feeling more connected to the person they were created to be. A true extrovert and lover of conversation and exploration, I aim to have clients feel seen, understood, and heard.
