Therapy is an amazing gift to give yourself and your family
Therapy is a safe, supportive place for you to feel more FULLY ALIVE. I believe that building on the strengths you already have is a good place to start. This is your place to stop running from uncomfortable feelings and instead, to see what they have to teach you.
In therapy with me, you can relax and be the real you. There’s no judgment here. This is your time. You get to share what you want and work on what you want.
Good therapy might lead to you developing healthy boundaries, having your voice, changing the conversations you have with yourself, healing from trauma, refining your relationship skills, and noticing all of your feelings.
Good therapy involves lots of learning. Changing old patterns that need to be updated. Being adventuresome and exploring new skills. Being playful enough to laugh. Being brave enough to allow grief and rage. Celebrating success.
Therapy and Parent Coaching
I offers a number of scheduling options for individuals, couples, and families. COVID has turned everything on it’s head. I am now doing therapy sessions over Zoom and ‘In-the-Park’.
In order to feel more joy, we must be able to face our fears and understand the ways we go “numb.” If you want to laugh from your belly and feel love radiating from your core, you may have to dig deep and change patterns of how you talk to yourself and how you interact with others.
With a deep belief that healing often happens in the context of relationships, the focus of my work is on helping people develop the skills they need to thrive in relationships and to discover things in themselves that may be preventing them from experiencing healthy intimacy and genuine connection with others. This can be done through individual counseling as well as couples or family therapy.

Mottos to live by …
With acceptance that we can be simultaneously imperfect and lovable comes great freedom. This freedom allows us to laugh more, be kinder to ourselves and have healthier connections with others. I embrace the motto, “Live imperfectly with great delight.”
No More “Shoulding”
It’s unconscious and we all do it: we “should on” ourself and others with unreasonable expectations. Replacing that critical, harsh commentary with more compassionate and reasonable expectations works wonders to calm anxiety, resentment and judgment. In its place, we feel grace.
Good therapy leads to growth … which leads to wisdom … which leads to awakening … of peace, empathy, courage, and grace.
