Welcome! I’m glad you found me. If after reviewing my website, you’d like to schedule a brief consultation, you are welcome to do so at no cost. (You never know if there is a fit until you speak with – and often meet face to face with a potential therapist.) I would welcome a conversation to see if I can be helpful to you at this time.
A little more about me…In addition to being a licensed psychotherapist, I am a foster and adoptive mom, happily married to my husband for 15 years (together 20).
My orientation for working with people is warm, supportive and holistic. I believe we must tend to our whole selves (physical, mental, spiritual) as we strive to gain health, happiness, balance, love and/or peace.
I use a trauma-informed approach to work with adults and teens on the following issues:
Anxiety, Stress and Mood Disorders
Depression and Loss
Parenting Teens – Handling challenges in the age of phones and FortNite
Work and Career – Discover your calling; Tools for rapport and relationship-building; Self reflection for success
Life transitions – Divorce, relationship challenges, retirement, re-entering the workforce, going back to school or making a BIG career switch
Adoption, Fertility, Fostering – Finding Love and Happiness in “Different” Families
I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT); Person-Centered and narrative therapy. I also draw from brief solution-focused therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness, movement therapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming).
I would be honored to walk beside you on your journey to heal, grow, overcome and resolve past hurts and find happiness and wholeness.
