About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    You need to find the right therapist for you or your teen. Here are a few words clients have used to describe me: curious, relaxed, and dedicated.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    How I will incorporate your interests – whether music, exercise, art, etc. – into strengthening your ability to cope with negative feelings, anxiety, and stress. Deep breathing, meditation, or mindfulness will also help you feel more grounded.

  • Together, we will:

    Get to know you and your strengths, as well as your past experiences, so that we can use your interests to help you improve your coping skills, identify distorted patterns of thinking, and process trauma in a way that feels safe and familiar.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    have experienced trauma, anxiety, or life transitions. Individuals who are feeling hopeless and not confident see me. Together we will learn ways to help manage the intense feelings, talk about the topic, and learn lessons to use in the future.

  • I became a therapist because:

    learning, listening and connecting come naturally to me. When I learned counseling was a career, I took the steps to make it happen.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    Right now, I provided telemental health. There's no drive time or time spent in the waiting room. There's no walking into a therapy office.

  • More about me and my practice:

    For over 15 years my career has focused on working with survivors of child abuse, sexual assault, other violent crimes, and domestic violence. I have helped many pre-teens, teens, and adults struggling with trauma, grief/loss or anxiety.
