Life can definitely go sideways; I’m here to help you right what’s gone wrong. I’m probably not your typical therapist. I’m a survivor of many things. I’m transparent and a little unorthodox at times. You will never wonder if you are sitting with a real person. I’m going to be honest with you; life sucks sometimes and I’m not here to sugar coat it. I’ve suffered, we all have; it’s what unites us as humans. I will never presume to know more about you than you know about yourself; you are the expert on you. But I will challenge you, because I care enough to tolerate the awkward. I am not easily intimidated, shaken or shocked, and I never judge. Judgment has absolutely no place in therapy. Ever. I am all in, totally committed to your growth. I will be your guide, your accountability partner, your biggest cheerleader. Your transformation is my passion. We will laugh, we may cry, and I won't mind if you drop an f-bomb or two. Your story matters; I want to know how you show up in your life and how your history and experience came together to bring you here. I will not waste your time going ‘around the same bushes’; we have work to do.

I will dig in, helping you heal from the inside, not just teach you skills for symptom relief. I want all the info…because that helps me help you to help yourself Got it?? I’m analytical, solution-focused and research oriented. I am experienced with adolescents, adults and couples. I primarily work with women and men, first responders, emergency professionals, teachers, clergy, and other helping professionals. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic issues/violence, life transitions and loss, addictions (all), sexual problems/struggles, and relationship issues. Your positive and healthy transformation is my passion.

My work is founded in attachment theory, trauma research and neuroscience. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, so I am trained in various modalities: Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), CBT, ACT, DBT, systems, solution-focused, and mindfulness and meditation. I understand that life can be difficult. And I know it can improve with effort, dedication and collaboration. I will offer you a safe, compassionate space to become you, to reach your potential, to create your best life. I will help you to accept what you cannot change, respond to what you can, and make courageous choices that support your core values. Life gets messy. Let's collaborate to get you to a better place.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
