6 years of experience

Welcome to my practice! I enjoy helping people heal, which can mean a variety of things. You may need help with coping skills to deal with anxiety, depression, or increasing emotional regulation so you feel more at ease in life. We might need to heal because we've lost someone we've loved, or maybe you've lost a sense of yourself due to trauma, career change, divorce, or family restructuring. Life transitions can be profoundly devastating but also may be a time of valuable change. I enjoying helping people develop into a version of themselves that aligns with their sense of authenticity. From this place, we work to grow a stronger sense of self, where you feel more confident as you navigate life's many challenges.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we have brief introductions and then dive into what brought you to therapy at this particular time in your life. We'll collaborate on your goals and objectives for therapy. My hope is that you will begin to feel supported, seen, and heard in new ways, and you will feel motivated to participate in the healing, and feel inspired by the brave work of personal therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have been told I have a calming presence. I listen well to clients but I'm not a silent therapist. You will get a sense of me because I'm interactive with the intension of helping you become more insightful and self aware throughout the process. My life experiences and education guide my work. As a therapist in my 50's, I offer a valuable perspective on life, parenting, divorce, loss and grief, restructuring life, and personal growth. I utilize both long and short term approaches to therapy. Clients of all ages seem to find my work beneficial.
