My Approach to Helping

Everyone struggles! Perhaps you need a new perspective on an old problem, or someone to help you explore and navigate current painful experiences and emotion. Perhaps you're in crisis with the discovery of infidelity or of a cancer diagnosis. I can help. I will help you grow, heal emotionally, and live a more intentional and fulfilling life. We are all capable of change and growth, but it's easy to get lost in a problem and struggle to find our way out. I offer you a comfortable space and to discuss your pain and explore how you'd rather feel. Together we'll uncover who you want to be and how to live the life you choose.

More Info About My Practice

I see individuals, couples, and families in my practice. I use an integrated approach with all clients, adjusting my approach to meet the unique needs of each client. I've worked in mental health for more than ten years, and have helped people experiencing anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, abuse, and trauma. I have worked in inpatient mental health, outpatient mental health, in a doctor's office and in cancer support (doing individual and family therapy and facilitating cancer and caregiver support groups. I've specialize in clients struggling with chronic or acute illnesses, such as fertility challenges, miscarriage, cancer, and infertility.

What Makes up a Problem?

We often think an individual is the problem (or perhaps we're the problem)! I believe that the problem is made up of the pattern or interactions we create between us. These patterns begin silently and unnoticed, then they get big and unmanageable. This is where I can help. I spend time with couples digging deep into the interactional patterns and help you learn when and where you can break the cycles! I believe problems lie in communication, expectations, implicit bias, and rigidity against change.
