Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | MA, LMFT
I believe that no matter where you’ve been, what you’ve been through, or where you are currently, there is hope. I know that life can throw some crazy curve balls and I understand how painful and earth-shattering crisis can be. You may feel too weary to deal with what is happening (or you may be tired of always having to be so strong), but sometimes transformation can happen just by holding on. I would like to be the person who supports you in hanging on, even if the rope seems to be slipping through your fingers. Because I believe the future can look different than the present and the past. Things can change. So if you feel like giving up, please give me a call instead.
Like a tree, I believe that in order to change the fruit (what is currently going on in our life), we need to look at the root. You can pick every orange off an orange tree hoping it will grow apples, but unless you change the root, it will just keep growing oranges. I believe that if we can get to the “heart” (or root) of what is happening, you will see different fruit begin to develop. Because I believe that many of life’s struggles stem from wounds of the heart. I want to help wounded hearts heal.
I have provided counseling for people of all ages, from 5 to 92. I have worked with children and adolescents as a school mental health counselor, with homebound elder adults with Providence Center for Community Health Improvement, and as a counselor and childhood/parenting educator at a community clinic. I also have experience as a life skills coach.
My previous career was in the entertainment industry, working in film and television, as well as in the music industry, as a singer/songwriter. Because of this, I am well aware of the unique challenges that can arise when working in those fields.
