On a personal note –

I know what it is like to live with stress and anxiety. And I know what it’s like to conquer adversity, to recover from difficult times and to not just heal, but grow. Over the years, I experienced how engaging in therapy, participating in groups, and developing new ways of coping can bring about dramatic changes. None of us needs to live with a level of distress that leaves us feeling bewildered, overwhelmed, or confused about what to do. My personal experience with psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation, as well as my years of experience providing therapy to others has taught me so much. I know that making changes in our thoughts and behaviors can decrease difficulties and increase a sense of well being; leading to less stress and more success.

Confronting intense and painful thoughts and emotions, and seeking guidance around parenting comes with vulnerability. It really helps to sit down with a professional who has concrete, evidence-based solutions, but offers them in a non-judgmental, supportive, client-driven way.

Self-discovery and self-recovery is a journey, it takes courage. Starting from birth we enter life with curiosity about ourselves and our capabilities; about the world around us, and how we fit in. Sometimes this journey is seamless, sometimes we get bumps and bruises. Yet regardless of where we are, we can all use some help on our Insightful Direction. It is my great privilege to work with anyone who is eager to understand why they are the way they are and what we can collaboratively work on to feel whole and understood.

My work with clients focuses on providing client centered and strength-based psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults as well as offering parent support. I work with many different types of clients from varied backgrounds, and feel privileged to have the opportunity to hear each person's unique story. I work to empower clients to look at deep-rooted patterns, explore and strengthen identity, gain a better understanding of past experiences and their impact on current functioning, as well as learning ways to manage stress and feelings in healthy ways. I also provide psychotherapeutic Reiki and incorporate energy healing into sessions. Reiki in combination with psychotherapy creates a profound effect on people's emotional lives, their relationships, as well as their physical health. This approach fosters the mind-body connection and is rooted in non-judgement, self-compassion, and acceptance. I look at my time with clients as an honor allowing me to bear witness to healing and change. I believe the therapeutic relationship is vital for this healing process and I work to provide all clients a safe space in which they can feel heard and understood.

Everyone can benefit from having someone to support them as they create a pathway to well-being, knowledge, and understanding in their life and work. You can create a life that is more satisfying through working along side someone who listens to you, encourages, challenges, and guides you as you locate your own authentic voice. You can move toward being who you want to be in the world with integrity and with a greater understanding of your own values and needs. You can do this through your commitment to personal growth, self-reflection, and active participation in changing the ineffective patterns in your life. I offer the space to identify, understand, and accept one's individual values and desires without judgement. I support people to move toward radical acceptance of and responsibility for their own actions and outcomes in life without excuses or self-condemnation. If you are ready to create the life you want by changing just one person (yourself) to make your vision happen, let's talk!

I have expertise in the areas of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship and family struggles, challenging adjustments and life transitions, grief and trauma. Most of my clients begin therapy hoping to heal relationships, alleviate emotional pain, fix problematic behaviors and improve their overall life satisfaction. And yet, despite their hope for the future and courage to begin therapy, getting started can feel scary and anxiety provoking. I will do my very best to help you feel relaxed and at ease. It has been my experience that my clients ultimately enjoy the process of becoming healthier and more self-aware. My approach to therapy is individualized. I take special care to create treatment plans that are unique to each person. I believe that life’s challenges represent opportunities for growth and that we are all inherently capable of tackling our problems and creating fulfilling, meaningful lives. I love my job because I am I able to help others find the relief and change they are looking for.

No matter what circumstances led us to where we are today, I believe that we all have the potential to be happy and content. It takes work to get there, but with a commitment to therapy, you’ll soon find yourself on the path to a better future.

Choosing to begin therapy and addressing difficult emotions, behaviors, and thinking patterns head-on is an act of courage and bravery. I consider it an honor for individuals, like yourself, to allow me to partner with you on this journey. I am happy to answer any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment with you.

Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to take on your life and put your past in your past to most powerfully create yourself and your future. The opportunity to connect and authentically communicate and explore one's life and oneself can be challenging, exciting, eye opening, and life changing. I hope to provide a space for this exploration and creation. I take an integrated approach, combining psychotherapy and medication (when indicated). Together with the patient I look to discover new ways of being with you.
