My Approach to Helping

To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. They think you’ve accomplished everything you are supposed to at this point in your life. But on the inside, you feel like an failure. No one understands your pain because all they can see is someone whose life looks perfect. I can help you to understand the influences and patterns that have led you to where you are so you can make lasting changes that will impact how you feel about yourself and how you interact with others. I am direct, honest, compassionate and will work with you to look more closely at your life and increase your understanding of how you can be a better you.

Why wait another day? Send me an email, give me a call and we can set up a time to talk on the phone or schedule your first session. Let's create a space where you can be yourself, build on strengths, explore vulnerabilities, and grow from your challenges. Life is short, why wait to live the life that you deserve. Take the time to take care of yourself and begin that journey to reach your goals!

More Info About My Practice

Temporarily offering online or phone therapy. **I AM LGBTQ AFFIRMING**
My office is small, convenient and confidential. I strive to make my office space cozy and relaxing, and as "non-medical" as possible. You don't even need to deal with a receptionist, as I will greet you when you arrive. I have coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water if you want a refreshment when you visit. I hope you'll come in and become a part of the safecalm place I've created for people who need to heal and want to move forward in a positive way with their lives.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Insomnia. I have been trained in a specific form of therapy that has been found to be very successful in treating sleep disturbances. CBT for Insomnia is an easy, brief, and helpful therapy that can lead to healthy sleep patterns.
I also have advanced training in EMDR, which is a safe and effective treatment for trauma survivors.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the "gold standard" for modern therapy and I am skilled in using CBT to help people with a variety of life challenges.
