I get it.
Something is not working.
You have tried many things to fix that feeling of discontentment, and it is still there. It is starting to feel like this will be forever.
When we have experiences that are “less than nurturing” (Pia Melody), it can leave us feeling misunderstood, scared, and alone. We all have at least one memory of an experience that led to feelings of fear, disconnection, and sadness. A memory we may work really hard to avoid thinking about by over working, staying busy, or an extra glass of wine.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
I have good news for you. The search for understanding is over. I’ve been there and am ready to support you on the journey to a deeper connection with yourself and others.
I cannot change what happened, but we can identify and address the messages you created about yourself resulting from these experiences. Let me show you how.
And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it
took to blossom.

I am a passionate advocate for those who feel they do not have a voice, that they are not empowered to heal, or cannot envision a hopeful future. From my extensive experience working with issues related to trauma, eating disorders, addiction, and depression, I help chart a course out of the maze of dysfunction and onto the path of authentic connection to self and others.
The exciting thing is when you feel connected to your therapist and commit to the work you do in therapy, profound change can result. Yes, even if you have tried before.
I know; I’ve been there. With over a decade of professional experience and personal growth and recovery, I deeply understand this journey.
