“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”

-Victor Frankl

Counseling is a process by which you can talk openly about your struggles and receive input from a non-biased, empathetic, focused person who has been professionally trained. Our families and friends can be a great source of support but sometimes our struggles are beyond what we’ve been able to manage thus far or our support systems are scarce. Counseling requires taking a risk to share openly with a neutral person. However, that risk is often found to be worth it when you find that there are things you can do to improve your life.

By working with feelings, thoughts, and behaviors a therapist can help you to manage and overcome difficulties such as anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem problems, and more. Your improvement may also include problem solving strategies and emphasizing your strengths. Read more about the details of my practice on this site and take a step towards feeling better. 

My practice focuses on the following: 




Perinatal Mood Disorders

Infertility Issues



Relationship and Work Difficulties

Life Adjustment




About Me

 I believe that people are capable of making changes in their life and that is why I do what I do. I approach counseling from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective which means that I help clients examine their thought processes and how those processes drive their behavior and outlook on life. I also believe that we all have the resources in ourselves to find solutions to our problems and I strive to help clients improve their lives from a Strength-Based orientation. Mindfulness has become a well-known practice in helping to manage anxiety, depression, stress, and chronic pain. I have seen the benefits of this work in myself and with my clients and will incorporate this approach in my work with you. 

I am a basic-trained EMDR therapist which means that I am able to work with a multitude of trauma histories to bring past hurts to the present in order to "edit" them and re-file them without the attached high emotions, physical sensations, negative thoughts, and disturbing images.

Special Focus


Are you easily exhausted?

Do you have difficulty concentrating or your mind goes blank?

Do you worry about everyday things, a variety of topics, events, or activities more than most?

Does your worry or anxiety make it difficult to carry out day-to-day activities and interfere with relationships, work, and other important areas of life?

If you answer yes to these questions you may be experiencing clinical anxiety. There are many forms of anxiety that include GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), Social Phobia, Panic Disorder, and others. I have helped clients to reduce the symptoms of anxiety through careful listening, teaching and the practice of mindfulness techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, and solution focused therapy. If you would like to learn how to live a happier life through practicing  new ways to manage your anxiety I would love to help you do that work.

Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing with Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness, and EMDR therapy.  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches. EMDR therapy can treat:  


Panic attacks

Complicated grief

Dissociative disorders

Disturbing memories


Pain disorders

Performance anxiety

Stress reduction


Sexual and/or Physical abuse

Body dysmorphic disorders

Personality Disorders

Perinatal/Postpartum Mood Disorders

Are you pregnant or recently were pregnant?

Do you have a history of mood disorders?

Are you struggling with sadness more than the “Baby Blues” or with more intense anxiety than normal?

Are you having intrusive thoughts that are disturbing to you?

Are you just not feeling how you thought you would during or after pregnancy?

Perinatal mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and psychosis are a specialized group of illnesses that often go untreated. There is help and there are multiple ways of feeling better. A healthy mom and dad or partner is the best thing for raising a healthy baby. I look forward to working with you in your journey to wellness. I am also aware that not every pregnancy goes as planned and there are many issues of grief and shame that can accompany this time in life.
