Are you looking for a warm and compassionate team-mate to help you navigate a difficult life situation, mental health issue, or general stress and discomfort? If you have reached the point where you realize you can’t keep feeling this way, I’m here to listen, help you better define and understand the issue and work with you at your pace to create a solution. I use empathy and humor to help individuals and families recognize their strengths and understand the barriers that may be in the way of change.

Although change can be incredibly uncomfortable, I strive to have my clients feel a little lighter after each session. I’m skilled at breaking down complicated situations to make them feel more manageable because I know it can be overwhelming to tackle it alone. I learn something priceless from every child, adolescent and adult client I work with.

Often clients have to “shop around” a little bit to find the best fit, and I support that completely! Congratulations on taking steps toward healing. Please reach out for a free consultation if you’d like to talk about what you’re looking for in a therapist and see if I can be helpful to you.
