I have a fairly diverse background in work and education including 20 years in the business arena in retail and financial services. In 2000 I went back to grad school again and moved into higher education teaching and the mental health field. I have worked specifically in substance use disorder in both residential and out patient facilities and I am knowledgable about most substances both licit and illicit that often get abused. My MA in psychology was focused on Binge Eating Disorder which I struggled with in childhood and began self-medicating with cannabis by the time I was 14 years old. I found pills in my late teens and crystal meth in my early 20's which brought me to my knees by my mid 20's. I met my first psychotherapist at 25 and she turned my life around, that was when I made up my mind what my life goal would be.

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

My anchoring belief as a therapist- and as a person- is that therapy isn't about "being fixed," as if any of us are some kind of broken thing. To me, it’s about recovering from suffering, and connecting more deeply and authentically to yourself, allowing for your thoughts, feelings, desires and dreams. It can be difficult to begin a new therapy relationship and be vulnerable, especially when relationships have been harmful in the past. I think taking the risk anyway reflects an inherent pull toward repairing the old wounds that restrict our capacity to live freely and joyfully. I provide psychodynamic, trauma-informed, and relational psychotherapy. We’ll collaboratively explore and process the impact of the past on the present, as well as tackle current difficulties. Creative arts therapy and drama therapy approaches can also be integrated into the therapy process, based on client interest and need. My style is warm, nonjudgmental, playful, curious and real- I have very solid boundaries, but have learned how to navigate them while also being a very real person in the room. I love this work, and love being an agent of change in guiding folks to live the life they truly want to live, and feel more alive inside of it.

I believe that one’s healing and growth begins with focusing on the self as priority in order to live mindfully and with intention. When one begins to heal themselves and live intentionally, he or she begins to function better in all areas of his or her life. I use various clinical modalities such as: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing to help individuals build a toolbox and begin to feel more confident in balancing life’s obstacles.
