My Approach to Helping

Are you tired and overwhelmed with a situation in your life? Do you wake up in the mornings wondering how you got to this place? Sometimes we get stuck in life and can't find our way out or don't know how to create change. Whether you're struggling with a relationship issue, a divorce, remarriage with step children, a loss, a work issue or simply wanting to learn more about yourself, I will join you on your journey to feeling more content and happy in your life. In a safe non-judgmental & supportive environment, you will be guided to embrace your life challenge as an opportunity for growth and change. I have a passion for bringing people together who share similar life challenges such as step parenting, chronic pain & binge eating.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love to see individuals and families work through a life challenge and get to the other side. My Therapy Focus is client centered. I meet you where you are with a particular life stressor or challenge. I guide you to find the strength within yourself to change and grow.

My Role as a Therapist

I see my therapist role as partnering with you on your journey to healing and/or navigating through a problem or life issue where you or your family feels stuck. Clients have given me feedback that I am nurturing, supportive, non-judgmental, down to earth and easy to talk to/approachable.
