Licensed Professional Counselor
Nationally Certified Counselor
At some point in life we get stuck. We either have anxiety or depression we can’t shake, or our relationships have problems we can’t resolve. I can help. I help you identify the underlying issues so that you can move out of this stuck place and instead feel more ease, happiness, and connection.

My degree (M.S. in Marriage and Family Counseling) is specifically focused on relational dynamics and I have extensive training in couples' work. I can help you understand how your relationship ran into trouble and how to find the way back again.
This is a massively stressful and devastating time. Sadly many of us are cut off from our usual sources of connection which help us get through hard times. I can help. I know strategies to relieve anxiety and sadness. I'm skilled at sorting through and mending fractured relationships. I can offer guidance with parenting. And I can be a kind companion to get through these troubled times.
Most of us have an inner critical voice that keeps us in line, but for some of us that voice is punishing. Maybe your inner voice tells you that you're not good enough, that you look bad, and flings other criticisms at you. It's hard to live with a voice like that. I work to listen, to understand, and gradually help this voice soften so you can feel better in your life.
My foundation as a therapist is all relational. When we are stuck in ourselves, we are stuck in our relationships, and vice versa. I have a lot of specific trainings in couples work to help open up emotional dynamics so that places that feel tight, restricted and even hopeless can begin to open and change .
Life is always happening to us and it can feel overwhelming. We may want to get some control of things, but we can't so the anxiety escalates. I can help you reduce the symptoms, and develop an awareness about the anxiety so that gradually it softens and you can better live life.
Life is full of ups and downs, we live that all the time, but sometimes life can feel too much. I can assist you using a combination of symptom relief and self-exploration so that gradually the sadness can lift and you can feel better able to cope.
