At the core of everything I do in therapy is the belief that true healing happens through empowerment and love, not fear. Therapy encompasses a bit of art, science, intuition, and loving kindness. What works in therapy is a real person connecting to a real person and I believe the best therapists are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see. My approach is based on a model of healing and empowerment to help you reconnect with that whole, thoughtful, creative, fearless human being you are and to trust your inner wisdom.

Children and adolescents often experience difficulties that affect their lives in dramatic ways. Whether it be a change in the family system, a problem at school, or a bumpy journey through adolescence, growing up can be a very challenging time. As a result, kids often display a change in behavior, appearance, or academic achievement that may be of concern to their parents, teachers, and families. These changes are often a cry for help and can be best treated by individual or family counseling.

Change is hard. It's particularly challenging when a lifestyle is built around behaviors that used to work. Fear, guilt, embarrassment, and anger often are a normal part of the process of becoming aware of the need for change. Sometimes these feelings create a barrier to the necessary change that brings relief. If you struggle with problematic substance use, either your own or someone else's, you know these statements are true. You just want reassurance that it is possible for life to be different...easier. It can be. Once a decision is made to take action...any new action...hope begins to come into focus.

I believe every patient should receive evidence based treatments which allow them the best opportunity at real and lasting recovery. This means I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Therapy in treating OCD, Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders and Eating disorders. This allows me to be a very hands on therapist. I regularly take clients out into the community to engage in exposure therapy and behavioral activation which allows me to provide support and encouragement throughout the process. I genuinely believe that OCD, anxiety, depression and eating disorders are very treatable conditions when being treated with effective and active treatments.

*** I am no longer accepting any new client. Check back in April 2021*********As a counselor, I truly enjoy working with adults and children to overcome obstacles and situations that may have them "stuck" in unproductive and unhealthy cycles. I approach every client with respect and listen to their story to understand them fully and collaboratively work towards their goals. I believe the healing in counseling occurs in the process rather than the details of what has occurred.I see it as an honor to walk with my clients as they increase their awareness, improve insight, and develop into the best version of themselves as possible.

Relationships are tough. Whether you have grown cold, quietly resentful and or struggling to balance work and home life, relational intimacy can be recaptured. It is unrealistic to think a relationship should be what it was when two persons met. After all, the chemicals released due to the novelty phase are no more, and our needs are changing as we mature creating a new relational dance. Other challenges include becoming inundated with the stuff of life ( i.e. in-laws, children, addictions, losses) which can cause a couple or an individual's relationship with self, to go un-nourished. One often asks, "who have we or I become?"
