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.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

Does life feel overwhelming? Hopeless? Like no matter what you do things never get better? You find yourself lying awake at night beating yourself up, wondering why does life have to be so hard all the time? Others view you as successful, friends describe you as happy and outgoing yet inside you feel lost, lonely, and unfulfilled. You know you’re not living your best life and that it’s time for a change yet you don’t know what to do and don’t feel like you can trust in your ability to make good choices. You know there is another way to live and are ready to do whatever it takes to make changes for the better!

Are you leaving substance use treatment and looking for support? Maybe you're still using alcohol or drugs to help you cope with life. Have you tried to stop using and still find yourself unable to control your use? Do you feel like 12-step meetings aren't a good fit for you? If this sounds like you, then I may be able to help you. As a person in recovery, I am familiar with the never ending cycle of depression, anxiety, shame and regret that accompanies active addiction.

NOT ACCEPTING ANY CLIENTS. You spend more time taking care of others than yourself. As a child, you experienced the painful effects of abuse and neglect. As a professional, you pledged to take care of others, to be the person you needed as a child. In your family, you are the " responsible" one. At work, you are the " go-to" person, mentor, trainer, and leader. Everyone counts on you for everything. When you aren't available, it's like everything falls to pieces. You are emotionally, mentally, and physically depleted. You feel forgotten, stressed, and burned out. You ask yourself, " What about me?" or " Who can I trust?"

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.

Does it feel like your body is on overdrive - tense, fearful, unsafe, unrested - like it sometimes has a mind of it's own and is totally out of your control? At times life feels paralyzing and pleasure feels out of reach? I believe that listening more deeply to the body and mind is a critical ingredient for lasting change and finding more control in your life. Through deep therapeutic work and sharing ones story we have the potential to feel less impacted by the past and create a greater capacity to experience joy.

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

If you're struggling with intense emotions that feel like they are controlling you and behaviors that help in the short term but only make life harder -- you're in the right place. A lot of times we continue to struggle, not because we don't want to change, but because we don't know how to do things differently. I can teach you tangible skills to have more choice and control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Learning these skills can make the difference between your emotions dictating your life and you finally being in the drivers seat.

Much of our suffering is due to dissatisfaction in relationships. Sadly, many relationships end prematurely when we are most hurt and emotionally vulnerable. However, this is the time when the very intimacy we were lacking prior has the potential to finally break through. I give you tools and insight to heal old wounds that are holding you back from experiencing the love you seek within yourself and others.
