I am Trauma-trained Mindfulness therapist who collaborates with my clients to build positive life change. In a trusting relationship, we work together to remove the obstacles you face to creativity, peace, and joy. We will discover how you may already know the answers to your well-being and happiness. Mindfulness techniques and an understanding of how the body manages trauma can help you heal your past to enjoy your present. Together we will open new pathways to strengthen your unique gifts and cultivate undiscovered talents that will help you grow into the person you've always wanted to be.

More Info About My Practice

I work with couples, families, and individuals to build a safe space that allows compassionate and authentic experiences without judgment. I focus your attention on your strengths, so you can make positive changes, become your best self, and journey toward healing and inspiration.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Drawn from my own personal experience, I am dedicated to working with elders, caregivers, and those diagnosed with Alzheimer's and other dementias, as well as Parkinson's disease. We will examine fears of abandonment, feelings of isolation, strategies for self-care and creating a supportive environment that fosters ones well-being. I am also a passionate advocate for the LGBTQIA community. The journey that we face evolves every day and I believe that with compassion and life experience I can create a place of acceptance and loving kindness where you can truly be seen and heard.
