I'm hoping to work with you! Whether you are in crisis, or there's just a dull ache of "something missing", I will listen and respond. I work with adults experiencing divorce, anxiety, depression and trauma; couples experiencing communication issues; and teens who are experiencing self-harm, depression and anxiety.
People are fascinating to me, and I approach each client warmly and without judgment, often with enthusiasm and a bit of humor! I honor the courage in you - to create trust and talk about your life's challenges.
In my therapy work, I draw on my life experience as much as my credentials to provide an warm, understanding experience for you. As a child in a divorced family, experiencing my own divorce and remarriage, and parenting my teenage children has given me a perspective to successfully help others through life's up and downs.
In addition to my Master's Degree in Counseling and Post-Master's Specialization in Child and Adolescent Therapy, I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a member of several national and state associations. I also recently completed The Gottman Institute's Level 1 Training for clinical couple work.
Your path to peace starts with a call now. Together we can find peace in the past, live for today and enjoy the future.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in teen self-harm such as cutting, and adult divorce transition. Allow me to help you or your child cope with the chaos that comes from feeling overwhelmed.
My Role as a Therapist
I believe the role of a therapist is to be a guide. A guide to help you see and understand the past and how it impacted you. A guide to show you the signs of growth and health. And a guide to teach new skills and detach from behavior that is not helping.
