Let's begin your healing journey together.

I work relationally, narratively, and humanistically, using the client-therapist relationship; your story, and my genuine trust in your own pull toward health to help you find pathways out of difficult patterns and situations.

Families Matter

Each person deserves the benefit of thinking about life in a meaningful way with gentle guidance through counseling. 

I would be privileged to join you on this journey. 

As a therapist, I specialize in assisting people through challenging life moments. Using solution-focused techniques and empowerment methods, we’ll identify steps to resolve your personal challenges and reach your goals.

I have more than 22 years experience working with individuals and families experiencing challenges with parenting, anxiety, depression, life transition, and addiction issues.

I focus on life transitions, relationship distress, anxiety, depression and trauma recovery. I also specialize in family issues including blended-family, first-time parenting, adoption and foster care. I provide a warm, accepting environment in which we can openly discuss your concerns.

Together, we will focus on recognizing and building meaningful life experiences to support and maintain emotional wellness. We will identify unhealthy life patterns and establish new coping skills.

These skills will help you develop and sustain satisfying relationships, and lead you to greater
happiness and success in your daily life.

Feeling stuck can be painful, no matter the cause. It can feel impossible to find the skills and motivation to conquer your difficult challenges by yourself, and too scary to ask for help. Counseling can help you begin to move forward again.

In our sessions together, we will cultivate a real
relationship where you can feel safe even when vulnerable; comforted in your struggles, and
encouraged as you are guided toward the resources you need to feel more secure in the world.

You have more strength and power than you know.

I will help you find it.
