The first step to any journey takes the courage to start. If you’re reading this and trying to find a therapist right for you, bravo! Therapy is a service and it is important to feel comfortable with the therapist working with you.
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation if you want to speak with me in person before booking an appointment. You can also email me and set up an appointment online.

Tired of being frustrated, on edge, or snappy with your partner or friends? Are you struggling to look past the lens of your anger and feel it bubbling up when you least expect it? Working from a mindfulness approach, I help my clients begin to understand their anger, release it in a healthy way and learn how to manage it when it attempts to dominate them.
Have you ever been told by others that you're just 'too sensitive or you need 'thicker skin'? Felt like you've stood out among your friend group as the one everyone turns to for emotional support? There is no shame in being a highly sensitive person, however, you may feel like it is more of a burden than a positive trait. If so, understanding this sensitive part in a gentle, compassionate way and how to cope in a non-HSP world can be the first step in reconnecting and accepting yourself.
Is your child struggling? Maybe their grades are dropping, they are more irritable and angrier lately? Maybe they are moody, stressed, and crying more often. There is something happening with your kid/teen, and you feel a little helpless on how to address it as a parent. Seeing your child suffer or struggle can be extremely hard! It can be even harder when the behavior feels out of control. I love working with kids and teens.
I specialize in the difficult.

Are you struggling to communicate what you need/want from your partner? Maybe you are beginning to feel barriers built between the two of you?

Trauma is a deep, personal experience. According to the research, trauma is held in the body and brain. It can present as anxiety, depression, emotional withdrawal, and anger. It often keeps us stuck in life. As a therapist, I utilize Mindfulness-Cognitive Behavioral, Strength-Based Positive Psychology, and Brainspotting to address trauma in my clients. It takes courage to start this journey or to begin again!
Get to know me
Whenever someone asks me what I do as a career, I always respond in the same way: “I’m a therapist. It’s my dream job!”. I am humbled and grateful every time I join a client in the session. I get to be a part of their journey in healing, emotional growth, and change, watching them overcome difficulties and ultimately achieve much more than they thought possible.
Finding the right therapist is important and sometimes the best way to understand someone is by knowing what they believe. I wanted to share some of my beliefs as a therapist:
What happened to you, doesn’t have to define you.
Re-writing the negative story in your head is possible.
You can and will overcome a toxic relationship or devastating loss.
There is nothing wrong with speaking your truth and using boundaries is an act of self-love.
Being vulnerable is a universal experience.
You are so much more capable than you realize.
Dante didn’t get out of Hell alone.
Therapy can work if you allow it to and have an open heart.
Compassion is invincible.
Most of us are incredibly sensitive and there is nothing wrong with that.
If you allow me to be a part of your journey, I will be dedicated to supporting and being with you on this challenging road. So let's go! I'm ready for you!
