Hi. Welcome. I know you have some questions right now, and I hope I can help. You’re not where you wanted or expected to be at this point – it’s disorienting, even devastating, and you might be struggling to make sense of what has happened to you, to your relationships, to your life. You’ve probably even tried to fix things on your own, but it hasn’t worked out the way you want.
The thing is, as difficult as things are right now, you’re here searching because there’s a part of you that hopes there is a way through. And I believe there is, too. The chaos doesn’t last forever and it won’t take more than you can handle. You can find healing and joy and meaning even now; it’s just about taking that next right step.
Whether you’re struggling with how to make this decision, how to communicate your decision to your partner, or reeling from the divorce process, there is a way forward.
No matter where you begin, you can come through this experience with a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationships, which ultimately frees you up to create healthy, happy relationships in the future. We’ll work together to help you recover from what you’ve been through in ways that support your happiest, healthiest, most confident self.
If you find yourself feeling uncomfortably anxious, worrying a lot, or noticing that your mind just spins and rarely feels calm, I can help.
You might be feeling panicky, with a racing heart and unable to catch your breath. Other times, it might feel like an underlying sense of dread or nervousness that can’t always be explained.
We’ll figure out how anxiety came to be in your life, what it’s doing in your life now, and what your life would be like without it. We’ll investigate how you can change your relationship with anxiety – understanding it better, understanding yourself better – and how changing that relationship can give you the freedom to live life the way you want.
If you’re feeling disconnected from your partner, struggling to overcome betrayals in your relationship, or not sure you can keep trying to make this work, I can help.
Everyone says relationships take work, but what does that actually look like? It can be completely overwhelming to see what isn’t working in your relationship without knowing how to fix it – and sometimes you might wonder if it’s even worth the effort.
If you know something needs to change but nothing you’ve tried so far has helped, let’s see what we can accomplish together. We won’t worry so much about assigning blame, but we’ll explore what it would take to repair and get your relationship back on track.
If necessary, we can take the discernment counseling route to help you decide if making it work is even what makes sense for your relationship. Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s not. Without taking divorce/separation lightly, I can help you find the path that’s right for you.

We will probably get along and do good work together if you appreciate a warm, relaxed approach to therapy. You’ll frequently find me in jeans, curled up cross-legged on the couch, so I hope you’re okay with getting comfortable too. My current clients frequently comment on the positivity and calming they feel in the office, which I love to hear because I truly believe it makes a difference.
