We all deserve to live the life we truly want, and I believe that no matter what we have faced, healing is possible. My therapeutic approach is empathic, warm, compassionate, empowering, and often humorous.
Helping people is my passion. I work with individuals, couples, and families and will walk with you through each step of your journey, cheering you on. I work with a range of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and loss, life transitions, trauma, and relationship issues. After working for years in the restaurant industry, I also focus on issues faced by industry folks such as non-typical work schedules, substance use concerns, work/life balance, and toxic work environments. Additional areas of special interest include women’s issues such as endometriosis, infertility, menopause, middle-age, aging families, and adult children as caregivers. Together we will create a space for acceptance, inclusiveness, respect, and openness.
I know that a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to the healing process. My therapeutic approach is focused on your strengths, and I incorporate techniques of solution-focused therapy, internal family systems, and polyvagal theory.
I fill my bucket by spending time with my family – husband, two dogs (Pepita and Luna), and a cat (Seeley). I am an avid reader of fiction, love Dolly Parton, dining out, traveling, and sitting on my front porch.
