    My Story

    Since I was a young girl, I have aspired to help people.  I have worked as a Mental Health Therapist for 15 years with a wide variety of adults, families, children/teens and couples.  I recognize the importance of supporting individuals and families based on their uniqueness and differences. There is no “one size fits all” form of therapy and I pride myself on building a strong relationship with my clients in order to facilitate change and growth.  I am a board-approved supervisor for associates in the process of licensure.

    Areas of Expertise: I have a wide variety of experience in Supervision as well as one on one therapy and I practice a wide variety of techniques and modalities based on each individual.  I have 15-Years working in Human Resources and Philanthropic work, which has contributed to my knowledge base.  I work with ages 16 and over.

    Personal Interests: I love anything physical and active, I am a big believer in spending time outdoors and the positive effects of nature.  I enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, golf, walking, I enjoy time with my family/friends and strive to live in the moment, that’s all we have!

    “The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude” 
    Oprah Winfrey

    My Specialties

    • Couples/Families/Blended Families: including sex therapy (individuals or couples)- I help couples and families with sexual dysfunction, intimacy issues, communication, family patterns/dynamics, problem solving, empathy, boundary awareness, conflict resolution and anger management. I assist families with strengthening their relationships and learning to overcome challenges together.
    • Trauma: Traumatic experiences can leave a deep imprint on the body and mind.  The effects of trauma can alter your brain and nervous system, leading to dysregulation which can lead to depression and anxiety and can impact your mood and relationships.  I am a trained EMDRIA therapist and I also work with different modalities specific to soothing the nervous system supporting both mind and body healing.
    • Career Counseling: We spend approximately one third of our life at work (90,0000 hours) at work, therefore exploring various career options and discovering what you enjoy doing is extremely important.  I help individuals choose (or change) career paths based on their education level, interests, skills and work history.
    • Grief & Loss: How individuals experience grief can vary from person to person, coming to terms with feelings of loss and making sense of it can be an emotionally painful process.  Grief occurs across all ages but is processed differently.  I use the five stages of grief (initially coined by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross) along with CBT techniques to help process grief and bereavement.
