No one is immune from pain, loss and struggles in life. During these difficult times we can discover that our coping skills, patterns of thought and communication skills are no longer effective to move us towards healing and peace. Our inability to cope with life’s challenges becomes more apparent when unhealthy patterns become our way of coping. Are you living in isolation, fear, grasping for control that seems to elude you, strained relationships, anxiety, anger, addiction, grief or depression? It takes courage to reach out for help, especially when we feel stuck and are afraid of being judged, and taking this step can lead to freedom and healing. Read more.
All of our personal stories eventually encounter fear, conflict, hurt, disappointment or mistakes. These and other challenges can cultivate and grow our character if we intentionally process them. Maybe you, like me, have encountered these challenges and are looking to change the future chapters of your story in some way. I hope to provide you with a safe, accepting place to be your real self and achieve what you want in counseling. I look forward to hearing your story and partnering with you as you begin the rewarding process of change. Read more.
Are you tired of circumstances controlling your happiness, your health, your life? Are you tired of the “same old things, the same old thoughts, the same old feelings” happening over and over? Are you ready for a change… maybe even a transformation? If so, then come talk about that life you’re dreaming of in an accepting, loving atmosphere. Together, we can work through the old, let go of what no longer serves you well, and create the life you’ve been dreaming about. Get excited about your life! Read more.

I believe each person has unique strengths, diverse learning experiences, and a distinct path toward finding his or her balance (i.e., mind, body, spirit). When facing tough challenges (e.g., stress, trauma, illness, addiction, work difficulties, unhealthy relationships, other life issues), it is reassuring to know non-judgmental support, hope, and healing are within our reach.

I am here to offer a confidential and comfortable setting where you can learn more about what got you to where you are today and what you can do to make it better. I want to give you a voice and help you feel heard. I particularly see adolescents, individuals and couples suffering with depression, anxiety, parenting issues and eating disorders. All are welcome!
Happiness is a choice. WHAT? Yes, you can choose to be happy instead of waiting around and hoping it will happen to you. HOW? Find the path that takes you there. WHERE? Often that path is found in counseling. WHY? Because with cognitive behavior therapy it is possible to customize coping skills for managing the way you think and to create a mental tool belt for building those actions that result in the life you want to live. WHEN? Now. WHO? You and me. Read more.
