About Me

Choosing a therapist for yourself can be mind-boggling, especially when there are so many qualified professionals in the community! The search is not just about finding a GOOD therapist, but rather one that best fits YOU.

You can't sleep, your thoughts are racing, you replay things in your mind, your inner critic is winning. Your struggling with the aftermath of current or childhood trauma/abuse. You feel confused, lost, and stuck. Your life feels void of meaning. You dread waking up. You're surrounded by people, but still feel alone. You have a secret you've been holding in. You're afraid of being judged. Fortunately, you've come to the right place. Therapy can help. I can help you. Life can be hard and feel overwhelming at times, but you don't have to live in constant pain.

With 20 years experience, I am caring and direct with a good sense of humor. My approach is eclectic based on your needs but I tend to you use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy regularly. Together we will embark on a journey of learning which I guarantee will not only be a fun experience but will transform the way you live, and create lasting change.

Alana is safe, nonjudgmental, professional, and sweet. I have made many breakthroughs with her in my healing. Highly recommend.
