In settings ranging from urban to remote, nonclinical to acute, I’ve helped countless children & adults find relief and realize growth thanks to deepened insight and strengthened relationships.
Even the most resilient of us can feel hopeless without adequate support, and few choices can be more significant than the care you'll choose for yourself or a loved one. But defining care and support in the information age can be mystifying. Amidst epidemics of conflict and indifference, many wonder if anyone can relate to their pain and suffering. Perhaps you’ve noticed something of your own disconnect from it all...and yourself. Whatever your challenges or problems of living, your decision to seek psychotherapy is a heroic one. I want to help you find relief and imagine new possibilities.

"Be caring, curious, and then compassionate." I practice these three steps just as I teach them. I studied psychology, counseling, and family therapy for 12 years to become the best therapist I could be and to know how best to help someone work through depression or anxiety. I especially enjoy working with couples to help create their healthiest relationship. My speciality is working with parents and their children even if they are grown.

I guarantee you are not alone, no matter what you might be carrying. In both assessment and psychotherapy, I emphasize a relational, person-centered approach. In therapy, we will work together to heal from hardships and traumatic experiences. The goal is to empower you with the tools you need to regain hope and carry on, no matter how dark the experiences have colored your world. The wound is the place where the light enters you (Rumi). Objective information gathered from assessments helps bring the missing pieces together to complete the puzzle of mental/physical health complexities. I work with children, adolescents, and adults.

I have worked with children, teens, and adults with a variety of problems like families involved with CPS, parenting skills, mental illness, addiction treatment for individuals & their families, unemployed individuals (career counseling), depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, anger issues, bullying, marital problems, self-injury, abuse, grief, & many more.
There is not a specific type of therapeutic style or approach that works for everyone: age, ethnicity, all of this may play a part into stressors and how we cope with them. Therefore, the services are built around the individuals or family needs, focusing on strengths and values. I believe there is nothing we can’t overcome and the first step is seeking the help. Therapy is about acquiring the tools we need when faced with adversity. If you’re reading this, then you’re already on your way to change. Life is full of challenges, struggles, and stressful situations. WE have all been there before.
