Are you living with past trauma or painful experiences that are creating pain and stress in your life and relationships? 


If so, my expertise as a therapist is supporting people like you so that they can heal and thrive. 


Past painful experiences impact all areas of our lives if we have not been able to process those experiences in a healthy way.  Maybe you felt hurt or unsupported by adults in your childhood, maybe you have survived abuse at the hands of someone who was supposed to love you, or maybe you have had embarrassing and painful experiences in your romantic relationships that still cause great stress. 


I work with both couples and individuals to help them put these past experiences behind them so they can relate to themselves and others in a happier & healthier way.


At the time you decide to reach out for counseling, you may be feeling overwhelmed and worried about opening up to someone you don’t know about what is troubling you.


I will create a welcoming space in therapy where I can get to know you and we can collaborate so that you can get to a better place.  You deserve support and understanding—I would be honored to help you.


I find it is important to balance the “science of therapy” (I am constantly seeking out trainings and research to refine my skills) and the “art of therapy” (you are unique and building a strong relationship with you is my primary goal) so that our work together will be most effective. 


You will find that I am able to offer research-based techniques while also using a warmth, kindness and sense of humor when it’s appropriate. 


You are ready to feel better—I want to help you get there!


It is very important to me that you get the best support you can so that your life and relationships can improve.  We can feel alone in this world when things aren’t going right—let me help you feel less alone!


On a more personal note:


I moved to the United States in my teens and have since been happily married for decades and have raised 4 children.  I know both the difficulties and joys of keeping our relationships strong and creating a happy home.  My proudest life moments include becoming a US Citizen, receiving my Master’s degree, seeing the progress in the lives of my clients, and above all else my marriage and raising my children.  When I’m not working or spending time with loved ones, you might find me listening to music or true crime podcasts, connecting with nature, or watching funny videos.
