I began my journey as a mental health therapist in 1996. Although the majority of my years in the field of mental health have been spent in Private Practice, I have worked in various mental health settings, and have had the pleasure of working with individuals, both young and old, from varied walks of life.
I have always considered it both a privilege and an honor to listen, non-judgmentally, as clients share the stories of their lives. I find it very rewarding to work "together" with clients, helping to guide and inspire, as they discover and work through obstacles which stand between where they are, and where they want to be. As I travel beside clients on their individual journeys of self-discovery and growth, I remain constantly aware of the courage it takes for them to enter into often strange and uncharted territory.
My primary interests as a psychotherapist focus on stress management, anxiety, identity development, self-esteem, grief and loss, relationship challenges, depression and trauma symptoms relating to Complex-Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. With additional focus on building effective communication skills, and the development of healthy boundaries, I strive to assist clients in learning to create and maintain self-compassion, self-awareness, non-judgmental self-acceptance and emotional insight as they journey through life's many transitions.
