If you’re visiting this page, you’re obviously looking for help. Maybe you can’t take another day of your child’s behavior or your partner’s habits. Maybe work feels way harder than it should, or you find yourself wiped out, annoyed or just feel like you are not firing on all cylinders. Anxiety, depression and other issues get in the way of how you live your life, how you relate to the people you love, like or work with and how you treat yourself.
Finding the right therapist is important. You want someone who is open to what you have to say, who “gets it” enough to know what questions to ask and what direction to go. And you want results!
Results like peace of mind, a sense of confidence in your abilities to navigate situations, relationships and life in general. If you are ready for change, let’s talk.
“I am practical and creative, and I think you should leave even your very first therapy session with some tools, things to think about and ideas to try.”
If you work with me, you will find that I am practical and creative. I think you should leave even your very first therapy session with some tools, things to think about and ideas to try. I also know that your well-being affects everyone around you – so you getting the help you need means a whole bunch of folks benefit.
Pat Love, an internationally respected therapist, describes marriage as “building a plane while you are flying it”. I think that really applies to our whole life, not just marriage. I am like a “consulting mechanic” as you build your plane. Let’s make it fly as smoothly as possible!
Are you ready for a change? Let me help!

What I Do
Therapy is about two things – Change and Relationship.
Change is hard for all of us. We often get in our own way when something new comes along. Sometimes, it’s as basic as needing a shift in perspective or it’s simply a hard season. Other times it may feel like a complete overhaul is in order. We humans are infinitely adaptable as long as we have the support and skills we need to navigate change. The longer we wait to ask for help when we need it, the more we delay our sense of peace and confidence.
I rely on well-respected theories and frameworks, in combination with practical, real-life skill-building to support my clients. I will help you identify and build on the strengths you already have, establish and plan for goals, and offer you practical and instantly-applicable tools so you can more successfully approach challenges, manage stress and anxiety, and regain your hope.
Relationships are essential to us. Just imagine what your life would be like if your relationships received the kind of time, energy and attention as your job, friendships, children, and hobbies. That could be a life-changer! Without thought, skills and energy invested in your close connections how much can you really expect? In times of distress, we often lack the tools and skills needed to stay connected to those we love the most.
Don’t suffer needlessly. Let me help you, your partner and your family work together to learn practical skills to use right away in service to the relationships you live in every single day.
