Personal Statement: We all at some point in our life need help managing a stressful, challenging situation. If you are experiencing an individual, couple or family issue I am here to help you process it compassionately and collaboratively and dedicated to providing you with exceptional quality care so you can achieve your personal goals and objectives. I am a Certified Master-Level practitioner of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which is a drug-free therapy that can accomplish emotional healing, on average, in just one to three sessions which otherwise can take months or years of therapy.

I have experience working with clients dealing with trauma/PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, abuse, grief/loss, self-esteem, codependency, relationship issues, phobias, OCD and substance abuse to name just a few. Additionally, I counsel those needing guidance with career and life purpose/decisions, spiritual direction, relationship conflict and stress management.

If you are looking for a group experience I also lead psycho-educational groups on a variety of topics such as anxiety, personality differences, codependency, healthy boundary setting, restructuring thought processes, anger management and building trust.Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As your therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
