About me

Are you feeling irritable or tired? Are you having trouble sleeping, concentrating, or simply making it through each day? Perhaps those in your household are wrestling with feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, or social isolation. First and foremost, you aren't alone. And believe it or not, what you or your family members are struggling with may be rooted in grief and loss, trauma, or even shame. Environmental stress, the death of a loved one, changes in physical health, divorce or relationship loss, and day-to-day life transitions can thrust anyone into an emotional and physical tailspin.

Please know there's help and hope for what you or your family members are facing. Let's work together to uncover and manage core -- sometimes, lingering -- symptoms of grief and loss, trauma, and shame. Over a decade of experience as a licensed psychologist has taught me that each is normal and manageable in a healthy healing space.

Life is full of mountains and yes, valleys too -- tough seasons that sometimes seem unbearable. Navigating stress, grief and loss, trauma, and/or shame isn't easy, but IT IS POSSIBLE when you have someone to support you throughout the journey. I welcome the opportunity to meet you, earn your trust, and deliver the best, high-quality psychological services.
