About Me


_1_SM_IMG_8846

Congratulations! You have already taken the first step toward change.

Making the decision to create change in your life is a bold move.

I am here to collaborate with you on the creation of an action plan that aligns your values with your preferred ways of being. We can work together in a solution-focused manner to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. We can clarify your goals and identify what might be getting in the way of movement in the direction you want to go.

The theoretical approaches that most inform my practice as a therapist are post-modern and include Narrative, Collaborative, and Solution Focused therapy. My background in the healthcare field as a nurse blends with my work as a therapist to bring a holistic approach to my work with clients. Distress in emotional well-being often manifests physically, whether as sleep disturbance, appetite changes, substance misuse or a variety of other health concerns.

Areas of focus in my work include:

  • Health concerns of any kind
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationships at home, work, and in your community
  • Relationships with self, money, environment
  • Substance misuse and other forms of “numbing out”
  • Mindfulness practices

Together, we can build a system of support that will nurture your mind, body, and spirit toward a more optimal state of being.
