I work with adults and adolescents living with chronic illness, adjusting to new diagnoses, and coping with difficult losses. These experiences often lead to feelings of hopelessness, isolation, depression, and anxiety. I work collaboratively with my clients to get a holistic understanding of the demands put upon them by their experience with chronic illness. Together we will explore how past and current life experiences contribute to the problems you are experiencing today. I provide a compassionate and nonjudgmental space for clients to process these challenging emotions.

I help individuals coping with chronic stress, including burnout and chronic illness, get “unstuck.” When your reality feels far away from what you want, it can feel discouraging, isolating, and frustrating. Sometimes it feels like no one else “gets it.” I work with people striving to become their best selves, whether that means overcoming burnout or lack of purpose, coping with chronic illness, or figuring out how to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

Living with chronic illness can feel overwhelming at times, whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been managing your illness for years. As a nurse-psychotherapist, I understand the grief, loneliness, fear, anger, shame, and vulnerability that may surface, often at unexpected moments. Yet managing life with chronic illness also presents tremendous opportunities for growth and insight, creativity and humor. Attention to the emotional aspects of illness and the body can lead in therapy to discovering new ways of caring for one's self, of moving through the world with more agency and joy, of being more genuinely, fully, with others.

What do you see? Personal specialties include: Adults and Adolescents with Depression, Anxiety, Trauma Recovery, Couples Counseling, LGBTQ focus, and Chronic Illness Recovery.
As far back as I can remember I've always had an innate desire to help others and see their needs while being both patient and positive. This led me to a career in therapy and early on in this career I was fascinated with seeing the power of exposing people's inner strengths, allowing them a safe place to vent and work on coping skills. After a few years I continued to have a lingering feeling like I could be doing more for my clients. This led me to combine these existing techniques with a new theory called Emergence.

Many of my clients struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, chronic illness, family conflict, and navigating identity.
Many aspects of who we are and what we desire are not invited in our relationships, careers, and homes. This process of compartmentalizing within ourselves and our bodies is often learned in childhood and reinforced by current circumstances. My clients work towards gaining a better understanding of themselves, their bodies, and behaviors. In our work clients learn to integrate all the identities that they inhabit and move towards healing.

If you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness, especially an invisible illness or disability, it can be difficult navigating your "new normal" and finding people who understand that just because "you look ok" doesn't mean you are.
Counseling and change can feel scary and overwhelming, while staying "stuck" where you are can be even more difficult. It takes time to build trust with a therapist, this can be even more difficult if you have been mandated to treatment or had a bad fit with a therapist in the past.

In addition to working with folks who have a cancer or chronic illness diagnosis, I of course work with individuals and couples without such a diagnosis.
If there ever was a good time to "do" you, this is it. Research documents that social connection and emotional wellbeing play an important role in staving off recurrence and even reversing physical illness - said another way, your mental state can work both for or against your physical health. People come to see me to unpack emotions that've been weighing them down sometimes for years as well as to deal with the uncertainty they're feeling in the present. Perhaps this includes discovering a sense of purpose that has eluded them till now. I don’t just work to help people get out of pain: I work to help them thrive.
