As a Clinical Psychologist for the past 30+ years, I have worked with individuals, couples and families with a wide variety of issues and concerns. While problems need to be identified, I prefer to focus on the strengths that are often obscured by the stress and the immediate crisis. As the stress becomes manageable, so too can we together discover the strengths that will result in solutions, growth and improvement. I look forward to sharing that challenge with you.

People come to see me to enhance life. Things are going ok however self care needs improvement. They are having difficulty in relationships with themselves and others, reacting instead of responding. They are willing to examine and work to improve physical, emotional, sexual, social, spiritual and intellectual aspects of life, hoping to improve self and co regulation. Often they are aware of past or current trauma interfering with their capacity to attach, establish new ways/patterns of living life to enhance the future. In practice at my current location since 1990.

Are you frustrated with how much you worry? Is your sadness causing you to lose motivation? Are you noticing dissatisfaction in your relationship? Anxiety, sadness and relationship problems often trigger one another. Anxiety and depression are exhausting. They drain you of your energy and sap you of joy. In addition, relationship problems can present anxiety and depression in ways you may have never experienced. You may begin to feel frustrated, irritable or even hopeless. Doing the most menial task may feel like a burden. You begin to feel like a burden.

Hi! I’m really glad you are here. Counseling can be intimidating and it takes a lot of strength to take this first step toward the life that you want and deserve. I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is to understand your story. My role as a therapist is to create a safe, compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental space that allows you to explore, accept, and expand your story. Whether you are going through a change, finding ways to improve your relationships, or have been struggling with trauma all your life, I want you to know that you are not alone and life can be much better!

Do you feel stuck about how to be more in control, content, or balanced in life? Perhaps you're feeling anxious, afraid, or overwhelmed. Sometimes, even when you do your best to pick yourself up or make changes, you still wind up not getting where you want to be. It's at those times that an outside, professional perspective can make all the difference. As a clinical psychologist, I help people feel calm, confident, and in control. Working together, we'll come up with solutions tailored to your specific needs.

You're a badass go-getter, motivated by working towards your life's goals, but something feels stuck or slows your progress. Your life is mostly together, but you're dealing with anxiety, low-self esteem, or negative self-talk pretty regularly. Maybe you feel like it's hard to form relationships with others around you. There's a chance social media makes you feel inadequate. Maybe you still feel or notice the effects of a trauma in your past. You've considered talking to someone about these things before, but therapy always seemed drastic or a little too extra. (I promise, it's not!) Email or call if this sounds like you!

Do you feel burned out and exhausted by "going through the motions" of everyday life? Are you floating through life, often overwhelmed, stressed, and feeling like there must be more out there? Have you recently been thinking more about who you are and what you want out of life, worried about the things that seem to get in the way? I work with women in their 20s and 30s discover and honor their emotions, figure out what matters, and head in that direction. We will face some of those more uncomfortable emotions and situations, together. Let's talk about what's going on so you can do what more of what matters to you.

Making changes in your life can be exciting, scary or often a mixture of both. You want to have the right support when you are experiencing a life transition such as gender transition; opening, escalating, or de-escalating a relationship; accepting and affirming a diagnosis of neurodivergence; or navigating the diagnosis or progression of a disability or chronic illness in yourself or a loved one. If you are seeking an experienced and passionate mental health professional to explore the emotional impact of LGBTQIA+ identity, polyamory, or disability, I would like to talk to you more about how I can help.

Often, people realize at some point in their lives that they would like professional assistance in order to successfully navigate or cope with overwhelming situations, strained interpersonal relationships, or distressing emotional responses to their environment (e.g., sadness or excessive worrying). In addition, most people are also confronted by situations in which past experiences inform their current reactions, responses, and behaviors. Therapy can help individuals to develop awareness and insight into their emotions and behavior, feel hopeful, enact change, and live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.

Building confident kids with social skills, advocating for the disabled with skills for employment, and strengthening family communications are the pillars of my passion. Helping children to cope and confidence for happiness, health, and healing can be answered with Play Therapy. Beginning and maintaining employment for individuals with disabilities can be intimidating. I provide support to adults with strategies to navigate through employment. Also, the home environment is first place where healthy family communication should begin through family counseling.

EVENING TELEHEALTH HOURS/FREE CONSULTATION!! As a therapist, connecting with clients and walking with them through their journey of triumphs and challenges, I have found that the connection between counselor and client is paramount. I strive to meet my clients where they are, focusing on their strengths and empowering them to make the changes they see fit rather than prescribing issue or diagnosis. I value treating each individual client with the respect they deserve. Placing emphasis on developing a relationship that is based on warmth, trust, respect, and genuine care. The ease of conversation, is client driven and casual.
