I specialize in working with women and symptoms stemming from relationship traumas: poor boundaries, low self-esteem, parenting struggles, difficulty making decisions, getting stuck in unhealthy relationships, experiencing anxiety, depression, eating, or mood disorders.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Assistant, I view symptoms in the context of your relationships. Do you lack self-confidence, have low self-esteem, feel alone, and struggle to socialize? Do you have difficulty expressing your wants and needs and tend to stay in unhealthy relationships, repeating dysfunctional relationship patterns? Maybe you experience shame, guilt, perfectionism, or people-pleasing? Are you going through a breakup or trying to rebuild your life after divorce or infidelity? Perhaps you feel so many different feelings and don't know how to manage them enough to be able to function and take care of your children.
I can help you make sense of it all and understand how these issues play out in your life and what YOU can do about them. Together we can get to a place of clarity, insight, self-acceptance, and empowerment.
I offer a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, empathic understanding, and a non-judgemental attitude. Finding the right therapist can be pretty challenging. Don't hesitate to contact me for a free 15 min consultation!
