I'm glad you are here. Life is hard enough with out beating yourself up and telling yourself you suck as a person, friend, partner, parent, child, employee, and on, and on. It's important to find space to give your mind a break from the negative chatter you use to push yourself forward but only holds you back. You have worth. All those to do lists can wait. Start finding moments of peace and connection to others. Take some time to be in the moment and enjoy the right now.
I have extensive experience providing clinical experience as required of a Resident in Counseling. I understand the diagnostic nuances and ethical dilemmas that counselors face in the field every day. Whether you are working in private practice or with agency-based consumers, I will conduct weekly supervision with you in a flexible manner to help you get your LPC license.
I believe that therapy is a place to explore who we are and how we want to move forward with our lives. It is a space to look at what is holding us back and impeding our own personal growth. My approach is to work together with individuals to unearth current and past dysfunctions that are no longer working for them and to help navigate a new way for clients to see themselves and the world around them. I help clients examine their patterns of thought, feelings and behaviors and explore the impact of their past and current relationships on their present life.
I specialize in relationships, sex therapy, recovery from dysfunctional and abusive families, healing the inner child, loss and grief, stress, life transitions, women's issues, and personal empowerment. I also help people with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression issues.
I have taught many college psychology courses, including: Basic Interviewing and Counseling Skills, Psychotherapy Principles and Practices, Women's Issues, and Human Sexuality. I have also written a helpful book on relationships and sexuality.
My compassion and genuine desire to help my clients find their authentic connection with their Higher Selves serves to enrich the process of therapy. Trust Your Inner Wisdom!
I specialize in depression and anxiety, communication skills, couples counseling, grief and loss, single parenting, career counseling, and chronic illness. As a Resident in Counseling, I tend to use aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as we work together to help clients see immediate connections between their thoughts and their current actions. This often allows for acknowledgement and change to occur sooner, and clients can experience the satisfaction from the results of their hard work.
My style is very direct and upfront. I focus on how your thoughts can negatively impact your feelings and behaviors. Are you finally ready to break old habits, heal from past trauma and stop being controlled by your emotions? Make an appointment and let's get after it! For my veterans- I speak Army and Marine. I can provide TDR evaluations ( with permission from your VA) and Re-enlistment waivers. I do not take insurance. Online appointments through Skype. Payments through Venmo or Zelle.

We are convinced we have a problem. We're focused on it, worried about it, and it often feels like it defines us. These problems tend to show up or worsen during life and relationship transitions. Attending to what isn't working, as well as being intentional about addressing these problems, is necessary for change. Easily overlooked though, are the jewels - the opportunities hiding behind those problems. Psychotherapy provides a safe space for growth opportunities - offering compassion to those parts of ourselves we don't like or shame us, while allowing for the fluidity, flexibility and movement required for transformations.

I'm a licensed psychologist with over a decade of experience. I've found that many of us are talented and have potential, but anxiety, uncertainty, depression, or life circumstances prevent us from leading productive and fulfilling careers. I've worked with hundreds of people to help them find a career that suits their interests, values, and skills--whether preparing for college, adjusting to parenthood, or making a mid-life career transition. Because I'm a psychologist, I do more than coach: I can help identify any root causes that keep you "stuck," treat these issues, and help you to thrive.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, the LGBTQIA+ community and treat a variety of issues, including religious and other trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, family conflict, relationship issues, and life transitions. I am a PCI® certified parent coach. My certification training, along with my experience raising two teenage children, has given me the ability to support all parents, with a special interest in parents of children with autism. I draw from different counseling theories to meet my clients’ individual needs. For nearly 20 years, my passion has been to make a positive impact on others.
