“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”  -George Eliot2021-214 (2)

Are you tired of feeling stressed and anxious, saying “yes” when you mean “no,” snapping at those you love most, overwhelmed by caregiving and professional roles? Therapy can offer a new perspective and to manage these challenges. In our modern lives full of competing demands, imagine being able to hit the pause button and find calm. With skills of mindfulness, you can focus and take action in ways that reflect what you value most. Anxiety and perfectionism are not the boss of you. You are capable of finding deeper connection, greater purpose, and inner peace.

I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and specialize in treating burnout and compassion fatigue, a skill I use in my role as a clinical supervisor for other therapists. I also have a particular interest in helping gifted children and adolescents to manage anxiety and perfectionism.

Life is messy, unpredictable, and challenging. At times, the struggles of today are complicated by the worries of the future or hardships of the past. Other times, we feel like our own inner-critic prevents growth and progress. I can help you break the patterns which hold you back from enjoying the beauty in your life and finding inner peace. I truly believe we all have the capacity to change, heal, and grow. I feel passionately about helping individuals become the best versions of themselves. Change is hard and it’s also possible!

My eclectic therapeutic style is comprised of mindful self-compassion, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectal behavior therapy (DBT), and internal family systems (IFS) techniques. Treatment is tailored to each individual’s needs. I will provide a compassionate, safe, and nurturing environment as we work towards finding balance and peace in your life.

Seeking help, whether it is your first time in therapy or another step on your healing journey, is courageous. I look forward to supporting you along your path of self-discovery.

To be human is to struggle. Your struggle is real to you and it is real to me. It takes courage to look into the mirror and realize change is needed. There is a profound importance to feeling safe when opening up to what you’re struggling with. When we feel safe in opening up we can work towards goals, which can improve overall personal growth. I want to come alongside you and together help you gain insight, skills and strength to make positive changes within your life.

I truly enjoy working with children, adolescents, teens and adults, who are struggling with a variety of issues. My therapeutic styles consist of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, narrative and dialectal behavior therapy (DBT). I believe in meeting the person where they are at and applying different therapeutic styles that make sense for each person

Together, we can explore your struggles and create a strategy to help you move forward confidently on your life journey.

The journey of life can be difficult, stressful, and tiresome. Wherever you are at on your journey, I commend you for considering this step into therapy.  Therapy is a place of empathy, inspiration, and healing.

As a therapist, you will find it difficult to convince me that you are the problem. Whether the problem is depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, marital strain, or the honorable goal of raising your kids well, I will listen to you and your story with open ears and a kind heart. I won’t pretend to be an expert on your life, though I will offer helpful and honest recommendations
along the journey.

The primary therapy approaches I use are Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Bowen Family Systems. My therapeutic style is full of warmth, creativity, and hit-or-miss humor. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, parents, and members of the LGBTQ community.
