Aliveness doesn’t happen in silence. Aliveness doesn’t happen in oppression. Aliveness happens in action.
— Brendon Burchard - Author of The Motivation Manifesto

I am not your run-of-the-mill therapist.

Of course, I listen well and am very compassionate and calm. But I just don’t sit there and ask you how you feel. I do care about your feelings but I am more curious about your entire experience and how we can increase your awareness so that you can make helpful and inspired choices.

As you can imagine I help people deal with any issue you can possibly think of- from depression to life transitions to the loss of a loved one or trauma. I tend to attract those people who look like your average person but feel that they don’t belong and don’t know what they want to be when they grow up. These folks often come to therapy when they have tried everything and yet still feel stuck in shame, guilt and confusion.

I welcome the rebel the one who feels like they are not living their best life but desperately want to. Together I believe we can find a way for you to get to the life you truly want and are meant to live.

I have over thirty years in the service field as a nurse/first responder, social worker and now as a licensed therapist.
