Hello there. I’m glad you’re here.
I know you have some questions right now, and I hope I can help. If you’ve found my site, it probably means you’re not where you wanted or expected to be at this point. I know that feeling. 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. If you’re like me, you’ve probably already tried to fix things on your own, but it just 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 that hope, no matter how small, is powerful.
You can find healing and joy and meaning even now; it’s just about taking that next right step.
Here you’ll find some information about what I can help with. If anything resonates with you, just reach out and we can figure out how to take those next steps together.
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’re contemplating, going through, or recovering from divorce or separation, 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 find yourself feeling uncomfortably anxious, worrying a lot, or noticing that your mind just spins and rarely feels calm, I can help.
Everyone says relationships take work, but what does that work 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.

We will probably get along and do good work together if you appreciate a warm, relaxed approach and a conversational style. If you’re also someone who enjoys reading and writing, we’re made for each other! And while I value professionalism in many aspects of my work, you’ll frequently find me in jeans, curled up cross-legged on the couch with a mug of tea. Professional and effective does not mean we need to be uncomfortable!
Come meet me! I invite anyone curious about therapy – with me, or even just in general – to come into the office for a free thirty minute consultation. You’ll get to check out my space, see if we connect, and have your questions answered before making any financial commitment to the process. We may find that we’re a great fit, or I can give you some awesome area referrals.
