I treat a wide range of issues for adolescents and adults.  I respect people from every background and am committed to helping my clients find healing, meaning, and joy in their lives. I use a variety of therapeutic models to guide my work as everyone is different and finds different things helpful.  I am most interested in getting to know each person as an individual and working as partners to decide what will help. 

I specialize in treating:

  • Trauma  (such as sexual, physical, or verbal abuse, partner violence, car accidents, spiritual abuse, witnessing or experiencing other kinds of violence)

  • Grief and Loss (such as death, divorce/break-ups, job loss, pets, adoption, pregnancy loss)

  • Relationship Issues

  • Compassion Fatigue (for anyone who is a primary caretaker of another, such as an elderly parent or disabled child, or working in the helping field)  


I also have extensive experience in treating other issues, such as:   

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Women's Issues

  • Stress

  • Sleep Problems

  • Adjustment Problems

  • Spirituality

  • Work/School Problems

  • Weight Issues/Compulsive Eating 

I work with couples who are struggling in their relationship learn to maneuver the complexities of life and commitment to achieve greater joy, meaning, and intimacy with each other.  While I help couples navigate many different issues, some of the most common include:

  • Communication

  • Conflict Resolution and Managing Anger

  • Parenting, Step-Family, and Extended Family Issues

  • Loss of Connection/Lack of Feeling

  • Infidelity

  • Differences in Values

  • Premarital Services

As with couples, sometimes families have difficulty in relationships and working through family hurts.  I help families with a variety of issues, with some of the most common issues being:

  • Step-Family Issues

  • Family Conflict

  • Communication and Anger Management

  • Grief/Loss

  • Boundaries, Rules, and Expectations

  • Sibling Rivalry

At various times throughout the year, I offer educational classes for the community to promote wellness and good mental health.  I am also available to speak at events.  Contact me to arrange a date/time or watch for my next topic!
