Accepting new clients!

If you want to change, you can! You can achieve the better and the good in your life that you are looking for!

Life brings many twists and turns to all of us that can present numerous challenges. I help unravel those difficulties that tie up my clients. I focus on the challenges and goals that YOU identify. I bring many years of experience with issues such as anxiety and stress, depression, addiction and partners of those with addiction, co-dependency, family of origin issues, dating issues and concerns, marriage preparation, repetitive relationship difficulties and patterns, divorce, blended families, parenting and single parenting, trust and betrayal issues, difficult and toxic relationships, trauma, work and career issues, and significant life events.

I dig beneath the surface to help YOU achieve your life goals by helping you grow and nurture a healthy self, build self-esteem, and create lasting personal strength and change. I help you in ways that others may not have been able to help you before – or in those places where you wanted change, but your growth wasn’t lasting.

Starting with our relationship with ourselves, connected and healthy relationships are the cornerstone of fulfillment in most every area of our lives.

I am committed to strengthening your most important relationships – your relationship with YOU, with your family, your marriage, your friends, your work environment – and working with you to healthily navigate and build strengths through the conflicts that can occur within those relationships.

If you are experiencing something right now that you’d like help sorting through, I have likely experienced it. Where needed, I can also help you rebuild your foundation of trust in your most important relationships.

At the times of the greatest challenges, we also have great opportunities for our best growth. I help you explore those long-standing patterns and thoughts that keep you stuck. Then we work together to learn and adopt new strategies that help you sustain lasting change you are seeking for your personal life goals in most areas of your life, even life changes and life transitions.

Changing our fundamental patterns of relating with ourselves and others is possible! I partner with you, warmly and without judgment, so that you can reach and clarify the complex issues you hope to change. I support you as you navigate uncertain terrain and familiar conflicts, so you can build a happier life and better relationships.

My personal journey and story add a depth of meaning to our work together – I believe the best therapist for you is a person who has walked in your steps – and is on the other side. If you’re struggling with relationship issues with yourself or others – I’ve likely walked your path. Many of my clients are from referrals from previous clients who experienced the healing and change that they were truly seeking.

Many therapists see over 30 clients a week. I limit the number of clients I see so that I can pour into each and every one with the best I have to offer. I provide the structure and expertise, and you provide the initiative! I’d like to hear your story. I believe that the best client-therapist relationship is one where we explore whether we will be a good fit for each other. I practice from a faith-based perspective, for my clients who have that desire. I also believe that the right therapeutic fit for your growth is essential! Give me a call, and let’s explore our fit and the possibility of working together!”
