About me

What would it feel like to be heard, to know that you are valued and cared about and to believe that there is real hope for your future? Are you struggling, anxious, grieving, overwhelmed? You are not alone. Life is really hard right now. You deserve self care and support. Difficult and painful experiences can leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves and others. I offer you a safe place to talk about and explore all those concerns.
Together we will identify specific issues and needs to establish achievable goals. Working collaboratively throughout the counseling and coaching process, we will continuously evaluate your progress as you become stronger and more confident in all of your life decisions.
From me you can expect warmth, empathy, humor and the use of practical tools that you can start applying right away. I will bring to every session an earnest desire to facilitate your growth and healing and will walk alongside you so that you never feel alone.
I work with individual clients and couples from all walks of life. I have more than 18 years of counseling experience specializing in depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, grief and loss and lifestyle adjustments. Most recently I have been serving military families and first responders. I applaud you for taking this first step toward wellness. Please feel free to contact me today!
