Ever since that awful event, do you hate being touched by your partner? Do you feel misunderstood and you’re worried that your partner is starting to resent you? Have you felt distant or disconnected because you can’t get disturbing images out of your head? These are common reactions to awful or overwhelming experiences. The good news is that they can improve with the right support. I help teens and young adults learn the skills needed to turn down the volume on overwhelming emotions and reconnect with their loved ones.

I values a holistic approach, which combines evidence-based practices to client care, including therapeutic communication, patient-centered care and shared decision making to help each individual’s specific need and values to achieve an overall sense of well being through psychoeducation, collaboration and client advocacy. I have specialized interest in children and adolescents, and I treat adults, also.
My approach is grounded in the humanistic understanding that each individual is unique and influenced by their particular life experiences. I value building a therapeutic space where we establish trust and our work is collaborative, supportive, and based on the best available research.

People often come to therapy in times of crisis, but individuals certainly don’t need to be experiencing crisis to seek out and benefit from therapy. In fact, everyone struggles at one point or another and often we need just a little bit of help to move in a more positive direction. Therapy should be a collaboration between clients and their therapists with the goal of exploring what is most important to them and what they want their lives to be about. Together, we can work to establish new ways of viewing and approaching struggles so that they are more able to build and live a rich, full and meaningful life.

I can help you change your relationship with your partner, your family, a friend, or yourself! People are often challenged by difficult emotions or challenging relationships. Instead of facing this task head-on, you may distract yourself with unhealthy habits like over-drinking, improper eating, excessive social media or video game playing. While these techniques may help in the moment, they can make the problem worse. If you are avoiding the challenge, you will not find the peace!
Wouldn't it be nice if you could say: "I have relationships that make me happy; I am present in my life and the lives of others; I treat myself with compassion; I have healthy hobbies; I find my work meaningful, and I feel satisfied with my life."
I use a variety of approaches and I will tailor our work to each individual. Techniques include CBT, EFT and family therapy. My specialties include work-life balance, couples counseling and men’s issues, but I am well-versed in helping with anxiety, depression, adjusting to a life change, and other issues. If you are ready to jump in, call or email today!
It’s healthy to want to have a career and life that you love. I'll help you find your own personal brand of values to make choices and decisions that will help you accomplish your major life goals. We can look at the experiences in your life that are causing you to feel indecisive and stuck. And together, we will create a realistic plan of action that feels right for you. Looking forward to getting connected!

Whether you are battling depression, struggling with anxiety, going through a painful loss or need someone to ‘just listen,’ I provide an environment where you feel valued and heard while offering encouragement, support and some objective–yet caring feedback. You have all the tools you need to achieve your goals; my role is to help you rediscover those tools and your own personal gift of insight.
For many individuals, the courageous choice to begin therapy brings about feelings of both hope and apprehension. People are often hopeful about making positive strides in various areas of their lives and at the same time, it can be understandably difficult to take that first step. I have great respect for people who make the decision to begin therapy and I prioritize working with you to create a safe, genuine, and comfortable environment. I believe in an integrative approach to therapy with individually tailored treatments that are collaboratively determined with each client to best address their individual goals. Whether you’re looking to feel better, fix a problem, or simply learn more about yourself, I genuinely enjoy this work and I look forward to helping you along this journey.
Sometimes it is difficult and scary to make sense of feelings, learning how to manage them, and being able to find healthy ways to cope while creating and fostering self-awareness. Therapy is a safe space and a confidential grounding process that through time, consistency and working together will allow you to identify and develop a healthy voice to express thoughts and feelings. I strive to help clients understand their emotional conflicts, behavioral repetitions, and their inner-self by empathetically assisting them in working through emotional difficulties and life struggles. Feeling empowered in being proactive about our health and understanding the steps towards change is a powerful and vital process to feel seen and heard.
