I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

Through my 27 years of experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings, I have realized that a one-size-fits all model of treatment is not the most effective method of providing support and assisting with change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the latest research on human and brain development, trauma and attachment, as well as the power of unspoken words and actions. I specialize in working with women, going through transitions or relationship trauma, children, teens with emotional and behavior problems and their parents who struggle with divorce, co-parenting and parenting skills.

I believe that we live in challenging times. Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone.

Life can be tough. You had expectations of what you thought life would be. What you thought it would be like to perhaps be a mother, to raise a child, and to connect with your family. You imagined it, maybe even dreamed about it. However now you find that living it is not what you expected. Or perhaps not as fulfilling as you had imagined and hoped for. You feel disconnected, and maybe even guilty or frustrated.

Moving through life repeating the same patterns in relationships can be incredibly frustrating. Dealing with a relentless inner critic, struggling to get away from constant worries about if you're "doing it right," or attempting to heal the disconnect within or with loved ones can all create a significant amount of dis-ease in our lives. Having been a psychotherapist for close to fifteen years I am honored to be a consistent, objective and inquisitive presence for the individuals I get to work with. If you are struggling with sticky life-patterns, challenging relationships, or are going through a major transition, I'd love to help.

Life is really rough right now in so many ways! We have never experienced anything like what we are experiencing right now. Life has been flipped upside down, anxiety is sky high, depression is increasing, relationships are suffering, and those with children are being forced to become homeschool teachers. The sense of balance in our lives has been thrown out. We feel stuck, depressed, anxious, and maybe even hopeless. It is really important to take care of yourself in this space and reach out for help, to talk things through, and figure out how to move forward in a positive direction.

My approach is shaped by the principle that we all have a basic need to feel safe and to know that we matter. My work is informed and guided by the knowledge that a significant number of people dealing with emotional/mental health problems, and many of those who use alcohol and/or drugs, have experienced some form of childhood or adult abuse, trauma, neglect, invalidation, or chaos.

I approach therapy from a trauma perspective because regardless if you’re experiencing depression, poor self esteem, relationship problems, divorce, abuse, anxiety/panic, addiction, self-harm, or simply procrastination — there’s likely something from your past that’s playing havoc with your life today. Whatever holds you captive will also reveal the key for your more positive future. That’s why it’s imperative we start there. Left to yourself, it might just get more muddy and feel overwhelming. But, I’ve witnessed clients transform a negative self concept and painful past into strength, resilience, and healthy living.
