About

Do you want to feel less stress and anxiety in life. Do things feel chaotic. I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives. My role begins by helping people to identify and verbalize the issues that may be getting in their way. I will listen carefully to your concerns and then together we will create a customized plan to best meet your needs.Our goal is to help you get your life back on track by implementing effective strategies that are geared towards you. I enjoy working with adults, teens, children and couples who are struggling with life’s stressors and are in need of some additional support and understanding.
I treat adults with concerns including, anxiety, depression, stress, bipolar, trauma, grief, marital and relationship difficulties, life transitions, divorce. I'm passionate about helping couples find their way through periods of conflict and reconnecting to rebuild. I also truly enjoy working with children to help them identify & talk about their emotions.
I look forward to working collaboratively on a plan that best meets your needs as we navigate the problems together.
