Seeking help is a powerful step to improving your quality of life. Talking to someone about whatever your concerns are is something that almost anyone can benefit from, but many people are afraid to reach out. If you are considering therapy or coaching, I applaud you, and I really do want to help you find what you need to feel POWERFUL and help you develop the tools to have peace in your life. I enjoy working with diverse clients, and have treated patients on the inpatient as well as outpatient basis. I began providing therapy in 1996, and have worked full time in several local hospitals before deciding to work full time in outpatient private practice. Though I work with many populations, I enjoy helping individuals with issues of trauma as well as working with couples. I work with all age ranges and have helped clients with a range of diagnosis. I use a variety of techniques, including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR. I am also a Certified Hypnotist and a trained mediator.

I LOVE playing and no one is better at playing than kids! I have been honored to witness children courageously bear their souls, face their hard life situations, fears, and shadow self (shame/embarrassment/guilt) and therefore bring freedom and creative, helpful ways of living into their lives. Obviously, play therapy looks different online, but with a few toys on each end and a child who feels safe and seen...watch out, they will create, play and process through what they need to without conscious knowledge or effort of doing so. I am just thankful to be along for the ride! Most of my talk therapy will come with their parents who I like to work with more consistently than with the child. Helping parents figure out how they are reacting to their children and their children's thoughts, feelings, sensations, urges, and behaviors allow parents to create more comfortable and helpful ways of parenting and interacting with the little human being in their care. Adolescent human beings are also a joy to connect with.
