I invite and welcome clients with anxiety, panic, life transitions, relationship distress, military veterans, fire survivors, and those with aging, existential issues.
Although it may feel risky to reach out, it is partly through the risk that change and healing begin. I welcome your fears and doubts, both are common companions on the first part of a journey. If you're struggling with panic attacks, anxiety, low self-worth, or feel confused by some of your experiences in life, know that you are not alone. We'll work together to help you navigate these challenges, build and maintain a sense of optimism. I invite you to take the first courageous step toward healing.

Also, as a military spouse for over 20 years, I have lived and traveled all over the country and understand the military lifestyle.
I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation in order for any healing to happen. Trust and mutual respect is important for progress to be made and I spend time getting to know the client and what brings them in. The client is the expert on their life and their experiences, and I feel privileged to be the witness of that journey. I focus on working with children (ages 6 and up) and their families who have experienced trauma, family conflict, or other hardship.

Loneliness is a trickster. It can disguise itself as depression or anxiety. It can get us to sabotage our relationships and jobs, make unwise decisions, neglect our health, turn to substances or food, lose faith in the future. It can decimate our self-esteem, without which we cannot give to others. Maybe once it was loss, grief, trauma, betrayal, being at the top, illness, misfortune, being different, oppression, distance, or age. But now, maybe it's loneliness. And with the requirements of Sheltering In Place and Social Distancing during COVID19, loneliness has become a heightened risk for all of us.
