Quality Care You Can Count On

Lending a Helping Hand

International Museum of the Baroque

I bring warmth, humor, and kindness to my coaching and therapeutic relationships. So you can feel some lightness and ease, because I believe having fun is part of health. 

I obtained a Master's Degree in 2008 in Marriage & Family Therapy, a License in Marriage & Family Therapy in 2011, and have obtained several post-degree certifications including Certified Professional Coach (CPC) in 2020. This means I've got a range and depth of tools to serve you! I've had a variety of clinical jobs and have many times needed to push the "reset" button to reach my goals. 

As a therapist for 13 years, I know how vital it is that we have someone to go to for guidance and support, yet it can also make us feel vulnerable. Those in the helping professions can feel this extra weight, carrying so much for others.

 

It can be hard to admit feeling burnout when you feel called to do the work, yet don't feel supported in doing the work. I know the demands you face every day, which makes me especially able to connect with and support you. We can find the balance needed to reinfuse your life.

 

As moms, we can be afraid to not appear grateful for our children and have old programming about what being a "good mother" means and what support we can ask for. Let's find your authentic way of asking for support and getting your needs met too. 

As a traumatized person, we might have strong protectors in our mind that tell us we're okay, yet our bodies tell a different story. We understand that the past is past, still our bodies feel like we're "there". Let's work together to unlock the grip of trauma so you can live right here, right now. 

 

As perfectionists, it can be frightening to give up the iron grip we've had on our reality. Because let's face it, it's worked in a lot of ways. And yet, it's exhausting to be in a race against yourself. My belief is we are doing enough. We are enough. Let me show you the path towards embodying that belief.
