I have worked in this profession for over 10 years and it continues to truly excite me when I get to witness my clients begin to recognize their potential and take charge of their lives, possibly for the very first time. That’s why I have such passion for what I do.
I have experience working with adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, and other issues. I believe very strongly in working collaboratively with you and treating you as the expert on your life. I am especially passionate about working with people who identify as LGBTQ.

I would like to start this post by putting it out there that I am by no means an expert at what it is like to navigate life transitions age 60+. I think it's obvious to say that if you haven't lived through something, it makes it hard to fully understand and appreciate that journey. I can think of examples in my own life that highlight the knowledge of before and after, such as things I knew about being a parent before kids versus after or things I knew about being married before versus after my wedding. It's only natural that perspective shifts with age, time, and life experience.
Over the last decade mindfulness has become a huge buzzword in everything from exercise, to therapy, to corporate workplaces. But what is mindfulness exactly and how can you get started practicing it? Mindfulness is simply being focused on the present moment. It is simple awareness or “getting present.” It is acknowledging both the internal (thoughts, emotions, body sensation) and external (sounds, smells, visuals) environments. Mindfulness isn’t a big mystery or a 2 hour long meditation session (but it can be!), it is just simply being present.
“Only crazy people go to therapy.” If that statement were true, then as a mental health clinician, I would almost never talk to anyone. The stigma around mental health is real. Unfortunately, we live in a world that has perpetuated the idea of mental health, mental illness, therapy, and counseling as something you do only if you’re one step away from jumping off a bridge, talking to imaginary people, or licking paint off the walls. As a mental health professional, I want you to know that this is not the truth.
January 2: The gym is so crowded you need to stand in line for half an hour or more to use your cardio machine of choice, or heck, any cardio machine. January 5: You head to the grocery store and it is as if no fruits, vegetables, or protein supplements were ever stocked on their shelves. Fast forward to February 15: The gym has returned to the usual suspects and you can finally buy bananas again!
