About

Sometimes our life journey takes us a little off course. This detour might be due to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship or identity issues, career or school issues, or other life circumstances that leave us feeling stressed or stuck. If you are experiencing emotional pain or feeling overwhelmed, you probably know how these emotional states can drain your energy and interfere with your ability to feel fulfilled in your life. Whether your symptoms are situational or long-term, therapy can help. I provide affordable, caring, collaborative, client-specific treatment to tweens, teens, and adults seeking growth and healing.
I hold a communications degree and can help clients effectively reflect on and interact in various life situations. As a 20-year high school educator, I have a deep understanding of adolescent clients. I tailor treatment to each individual or couple but most frequently use client-centered, solution focused, strengths-based, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
While there is no automated GPS to guide you through life, you don’t have to find your way alone. I am here to support you through whatever challenges you may be facing, and I have flexible hours - including evenings and weekends - to allow you the time to increase your self-awareness, achieve your goals, and acquire skills and tools to live your best life.
