After years of being a stay at home mom, several friends and acquaintances who sought my advice and support when dealing with life’s challenges encouraged me to become a therapist. I went back to school and earned my master’s degree in counseling. I subsequently earned certificates in trauma/PTSD (with a specialty in sexual trauma) and in intimate relationship skills.

I know firsthand how overwhelming and frightening transitions can be. Sometimes just the thought of making a change in your life can prevent you from moving forward. it it scary to take that first step but it’s a little easier when know that someone will be by your side guiding and encouraging you every step of the way.

I view life as a journey with many obstacles along the way. We may find ourselves struggling with difficult or broken relationships, illness, the death of a loved one or unresolved issues from our childhood. At times we might feel anxious, confused, depressed and even hopeless and we don’t know where to turn to find relief. Struggles and challenges are part of the human condition and sometimes we need a little assistance to overcome them. Together we can collaborate in exploring the issues that affect you and the obstacles that hold you back from realizing your highest potential. I am passionate about helping people find the inner peace and fulfillment we all seek by assisting them in acquiring tools for self-growth, for reducing anxiety and depression and for improved relationships. The process can be extremely rewarding and life changing.

Combining several modalities, my approach is custom tailored to meet each individual’s needs. I believe that the client is the expert on his/her own life and I am the emotional/mental guide who will assist you in reaching your destination.

I became passionate about helping couples communicate more effectively and enjoy healthier, more fulfilling relationships when I noticed how many clients came to me because of broken or dysfunctional relationships and how these relationships took a toll on their emotional/mental health. I realized that many people have simply never been in a place in their lives where they had a chance to discover what it takes to create and sustain a relationship based on love and intimacy.

You have probably already invested a great deal of time in your relationship, so please don’t give up now. There is hope. Please allow me give you tools and teach strategies and skills which can help repair a relationship which has become contentious or rekindle a relationship which has become dissatisfying.

I look forward to assisting you in your journey to a more satisfying life.
