I have been practicing counseling since 1993. I specialize in working with special needs children and their families, though I work with adults as well and the following issues: LD/ADHD, ASD (high functioning), anxiety, depression, grief, suicide loss, divorce/blended families/co-parenting (not high conflict), women's issues, and trauma. I have worked in a variety of settings with children/adolescents/families, including schools, group homes, a secure residential facility and private practice. As a Mom of two children with LD/ADHD, I bring a unique perspective and an uncommon understanding to my work with this population.

I specialize in supporting women during periods of personal and professional change- with a special focus on new and expecting mothers. The journey into motherhood is a period of profound change.

From identity transitions, physical and emotional changes, relationships and family dynamics, employment, health and safety, etc. I provide informed care and support that can attend to these many areas of change. Know that you are not alone and you do not need to navigate this space by yourself.

Life is hard. REALLY hard. And sometimes you just need someone who will listen without judgement or speak some truth to you or just say, hey, you are going to get through this and one day it will be better. Sometimes we need someone who can believe in our potential even if we don't yet see it, and who will push us to reach it. This is what I hope to do for clients when I sit with them in their pain, their joy, their successes, and their failures.

Do you often feel stressed and anxious? I enjoy helping women grow in freedom from anxiety, feeling isolated & overwhelmed in their personal &/or professional lives. I know from working with clients, they want peace of mind, to experience healthy relationships, feel fulfilled in who they are and lead lives of impact. Yet, sometimes we wonder after experiencing ongoing circumstances of disappointment and undue stress, where that woman went or how to find her again...Day to day reality, especially through significant times of change, can be overwhelming, resulting in feeling weighed down by much to do’s and a drive to keep performing.

Sometimes life comes at you fast. Unexpected events occur or transitions happen. That's what makes life exciting, but also challenging at times. Whether it be a job transition, adjusting to a new family, relationship issues or trying to find your way as a parent during the teenage years (or navigating life as a teenager yourself!), these experiences can often cause stress in our lives. As a result, you might find yourself not sleeping well, feeling anxious, experiencing low self-esteem, anger and sadness. You often wonder, when will everything get better and I'll feel like myself again?

I see children, teens and adults dealing with issues including but not limited to: stress, anxiety, depression, unplanned pregnancy, abortion recovery, relationships and infidelity. Everyone's story is unique and I am committed to helping clients tell that story. Clients need a safe space to talk and explore their issues without judgement. Counseling is a place to help develop goals based on those issues and come up with a plan for healing and growth. Counseling can also be a safe space to explore past hurts, disappointments and pain. I enjoy working with clients at any age and life stage.

Most of my clients look good on the outside, yet feel mildly miserable on the inside. Pain is motivating and when clients are hurting, they call to schedule an appointment. It takes more than intellect to change behavior. Most of my clients are intelligent and know what they "should" do, yet struggle to take healthy action. I work with people (or partners) who struggle with substances and behavioral medicators such as alcohol, porn, overeating and codependency. I treat individuals, couples and families that need help with addiction, mental illness, infidelity or simply feeling stuck. It is a relief to not have to do it alone.

On the outside, it looks like you've got it together: you're successful, appear calm and confident, but deep down you question everything, all the time. You're juggling life and you've been addressing everyone else's needs, it's exhausting. Imagine what it would feel like to put on your own "oxygen-mask" and take care of yourself first, so that you stop feeling so anxious, and stop repeating the same patterns in your relationships.

Stress is inevitable, it's how we respond to it that matters. While stress can be a catalyst for spiritual, physical and emotional growth, it can also impact our short and long-term well-being. During stressful times, it's important to recognize emotional and physical changes. However, if we avoid or neglect our internal experiences because of the fear of pain, we essentially shut ourselves off from any potential growth our challenges offer. My goal is to support you through challenging times, allowing you to open fully to the present moment by incorporating compassion-oriented and mindfulness-based strategies.
