Mental Health Professionals

Do you feel like you’ve hit a wall? You’re spinning in circles? You keep reliving past experiences? Or perhaps you and your partner are having the same fights over and over again with no resolution. Maybe you’re a parent floating along in a sea of chaos that you can’t ever seem to bring order to. Felling alone, lost, or ashamed that you ‘can’t handle this’ or you ‘should know what to do’ — everyone else seems to be doing just fine.

There is no Life Manual, no Relationship Guide, no Parenting Handbook given to you at birth to help you navigate life. We all depend on the lessons learned in our childhood and experience gained throughout the journey to help us navigate the challenges we face. Sometimes you didn’t get very good lessons in childhood and now you’re feeling as though you lack the skills to improve your life, relationship, or family. Sometimes your experiences didn't prepare you for the complexity of juggling every aspect of adulthood, the reality of sharing your life with a partner, or struggling to maintain you own identity as you became a parent (“I used to be more than just Mom/Dad!”).

Life pushes us and challenges us, and one of the great myths is that you have to endure the trials on your own. Sometimes it takes an outside perspective (especially one with specialized training!) to help you see things clearly or understand what’s really going on. You are an inherently good, healthy human being - sometimes the ‘dirt’ of life gets in the way of seeing that for yourself and being able to move forward. My job is to support you in finding out what’s holding you back or complicating your life, and helping you figure out how to become unstuck and empowered in your own choices.

I accept Mines & Associates, Medicaid, and Cigna.
