I believe that therapy should always be a safe environment, but "comfort" may need to be challenged in order for desired, transformative change to occur. My clients tend to come at a weekly session frequency for maintenance of a steady "flow" to our work.

My hope for any potential client is that they find the therapist that sufficiently aligns with their needs. If we find that after a couple sessions that our dynamic is not quite working, I will help you find a therapist that is a better fit.

Please feel free to contact me for a free, 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether we are a good therapeutic match. I look forward to hearing from you!

We don’t heal in isolation. We heal in the context of healthy and safe relationships. Together, we can lighten load that you’ve been carrying and make sense of the messiness of life. In sessions with me, you can expect to be empowered with practical tools, observations, insights and nurturing containment. I offer a safe, authentic space to unpack issues, repair emotional wounds, develop practical skills, engage in exploratory processing of patterns, and be connected with resources and information. Our work together will build on and activate your inner strength and resiliency.

Connecting with a professional therapist can shed light on patterns that may need to shift in order to align with the healthiest version of you. Weekly sessions can offer you a restorative sanctuary from which to heal, grow and break cycles of dysfunction. The therapeutic process is enlightening, transformative, and can surprisingly even be fun! The process puts you in the driver seat of your life rather than continuing to repeat unconscious patterns which are no longer serving you.

I would be honored to be a partner in your path to wellness. If you feel drawn to my approach, let's connect for a free consult.

I believe that relationships are at the core of therapy. I seek to build a strong, trusting relationship with you so that we can delve into the problems that are getting in the way of your vision for your life. I operate from a non-judgmental, compassionate, client-centered perspective where I treat you as the expert on your situation and seek to understand you and your challenges in the context of your experiences, values, and desires. I work collaboratively with you to connect you with your strengths and values in order to address the issues you're struggling with.

I consider it a privilege to be in conversation about the messy parts of life with you and to conjointly create a shame-free space where you can do this work. I hold hope that change is possible and that you can move closer to your vision for your life, even when the problems you're up against seem overwhelming.

Are you someone who finds themselves feeling overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated about their life? Do you sense you have little support from family and friends? Perhaps you're on edge and aren't able to relax? Or maybe that you can't remember a time when your world didn't run on chronic stress?

So you’ve noticed these feelings and have tried ways to challenge them. Start yoga, didn’t work. Read a self-help book suggested by a friend, didn’t work. Sought solace from your peers. They didn’t understand. Even Googled your symptoms. Yeah, that last one was a bad idea.

Maybe you even know what is causing you so much turmoil. Grief and loss, discrimination, infidelity, or trauma.

If you find yourself saying yes to any of the above, then you're on the right Zencare profile.

Our clinicians are equipped with the clinical tools to assist you with achieving your goals, overcoming your struggles, and finding the most authentic ways for you to live your life. They will teach you skills to manage your feelings, thoughts, and actions. They will work with you to find your footing in a world that always feels off-kilter.

Congratulations for taking the first step towards change! I utilize many methods with clients during sessions (art therapy, narrative therapy, trauma focused therapy, positive psychology, videos, worksheets, etc.) Change does take work but it can happen! I sometimes give homework to help my clients achieve their goals. I mainly work with adults and adolescents (13+) as individuals and as couples (couples counseling includes a guardian/parent and adolescent minor, adolescent or adult siblings, or intimate partnerships). Whether it's depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, or a mixture of things, I look forward to working with you!

I specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety with adults and adolescents. If you are seeking couples counseling, I can assist you and your partner with intimacy and communication during whatever stage of your relationship (pre-marital/unmarried, newly weds, married for years).

Change and healing happens when we are honest and express our authentic selves. We all carry the power and strength inside of us to revolutionize our lives. Let's discover your genuine self together to help you live a fulfilling life! You hold the keys to a better you. I look forward to helping you find those keys and unlocking your purposeful future.

You are reaching out because things don't feel right and you don't feel good. Do you struggle with irritability or sadness? Maybe you have a trauma history that could be impacting your relationships, health or parenting?

I can assist you in making connections between past experiences and current behaviors. I believe in the healing power of relationship and connection.

So often we struggle because of barriers that inhibit successful relationships with our children, parents, partner or peers. I can help you to see where the barriers and unsuccessful behaviors come from to be able to make lasting and positive change.

Life is hard. We are not born knowing how to regulate our feelings, communicate effectively, or set healthy boundaries. Sometimes we need some help to learn how to be in the world in a way that feels safe, empowered, and free.

I am passionate about helping women grow into more of themselves. Doing the work of healing can be scary business, but I believe that having a supportive and safe space to explore your inner life is the key to success. I strive to create an environment of acceptance, authenticity, and laughter. I will work hard to make sure you feel seen and heard, but also challenged. I love what I do and feel deeply honored to walk beside women on their journeys.

I'd love to hear from you! Please reach out if you'd like to chat and see if we're a good fit.

As your therapist, I am committed to helping you discover your inner power and cultivate lasting change. I help people whose emotions or thoughts take over at the worst possible moments, and those who wrestle with day-to-day life confusion, pain or loss. This period of time can feel overwhelming and debilitating. It may even affect your relationships with family, friends or career.

As Shannon Alder puts it, “courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” How do you to face the difficult questions, show courage, and claim your Shakti (strength) in order to heal?

Healing begins with love. Let’s work on being in love with the person in the mirror. You have been through so much and are still showing resilience. As your psychotherapist, I help you navigate the challenges of adulthood & manage your feelings through interventions such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Walking Therapy and other holistic methods like Crystal Healing.

If you are ready to feel empowered, effortlessly achieve your goals, and feel more happiness in your life, contact me today for a complimentary telephone consultation. I am in this with you & TOGETHER we can navigate any conflict you are trying to manage.
