You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

Making the decision to seek therapy, and finding the right provider for yourself are the first steps on the path to change. I do not take for granted the significance a therapeutic relationship can hold and see the work as a privilege. Like any healthy relationship, the therapeutic connection has to be rooted in trust. I hope to earn that trust with you by being present and engaged in our work. Life very rarely leaves anyone without the experiences of anxiety, sadness, stress, and pain at times. As well as joy, excitement, and satisfaction. You are not alone, and I would like to help you toward a positive leaning balance.

Change is possible. My style is warm, engaging, and pragmatic. I ask a lot of questions and help you to find your own answers. I work with individuals who are struggling with panic, anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, loss, family and marital relationships. When emotions have taken over, it is crucial to have someone provide an objective perspective. I help you identify the beliefs and behaviors that may be getting in your way. Many times these are distorted, outdated beliefs or simply our bodies natural response to ongoing relational/environmental stressors.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I work with women who have a wide variety of conditions stemming from relational and environmental stress. I believe that we are naturally programmed to heal, but often we rely on past coping skills that are no longer functional, and this blocks the path to healing. I think every symptom once served a purpose and that change can occur by looking at how and why these symptoms developed, while at the same time trying new behaviors.

They might feel plagued with negative thoughts, fear, anxiety and overall feel stuck because the things they were using to cope in the past are not helping them now. If you have been feeling this way, I want you to know that you are not alone and that there is treatment for you as an individual. Treatment can drastically change your life and that way you are interacting in your life!

I've been trained in several therapeutic approaches so that I can offer you a variety of ways to resolve your problems. This helps us to find the right fit for each issue. My multi-leveled knowledge and experience in treating problems with relationships, addictions, trauma, depression, anxiety etc. has led to clients experiencing significant life changes.

I believe that most of the time we work through life's ups and downs on our own. But, sometimes life becomes difficult to manage. Changes and challenges can become overwhelming and increase feelings of vulnerability, stress or anxiety. Other times, we just feel stuck. Therapy can be a helpful step towards feeling better. I enjoy working with clients to help them regain balance and perspective. We'll work together at your pace to explore feelings and experiences while challenging what may no longer be effective. I'll provide your extra support, guidance or motivation in a warm, safe environment.

One of the pillars of a fulfilling life is the ability to be our authentic selves. Sometimes obstacles, hardships, and missteps cause us to forgo authenticity to survive.
