Specifically, I work to empower adolescents, adults, couples , and families find ways to manage their stressors, heal from trauma and relational hurts.
We all can get stuck. We can find ourselves in unhelpful patterns, relationship conflicts, and uncomfortable emotions. Do you feel trapped in your current situation or overwhelmed by life stressors? Are you craving more connection and better communication in your relationships? Or perhaps you or your child have been through a trauma. Trauma and life stressors can make daily functioning and our relationships challenging. Counseling can help provide relief.

” Areas I particularly love to work with include existential anxiety, psychological abuse, relationship issues, couples communication, blending families, life discernment, and shame-based thinking.
Above all else, finding the best therapist for YOU is most important here. I know this sea of profiles can be overwhelming so I'll try to offer some help: the people who work best with me appreciate having a straight-shooter. They aren’t afraid of being challenged while being supported. They receive my awkward analogies and welcome the healing power of both laughter and silence into our sessions. If you need a cheerleader for really poor decisions and disordered thinking, I will not be a good fit for you. But if you are looking for a therapist who is direct AND compassionate, strategic AND patient, and 100% authentic, that’s me.

I call attention to underlying patterns that give meaning to personal struggles. I help couples identify transference issues as they trigger power struggles today. I often use teaching stories to support clients in learning to think symbolically in the service of embracing the deeper work required to achieve emotional intimacy.

Offering a calm, compassionate presence, I partner with clients to bring attention to patterns of relating to themselves and others that may no longer work.
In a world that is habitually fast-paced and anonymous, it is easy to lose connection with ourselves and each other. Are you feeling disconnected or stuck? Like the parts of your life are out of sync? Having difficulties in relationships? Typically, I work with people experiencing disconnection and "stuck" feelings which often show up during times of transition and change within the context of significant relationships including parents, partners, children and friends. I also work with people around the stuck places connected to various trauma experiences.
