Therapeutic Orientation and Style

I draw from various therapeutic techniques based on your particular immediate needs however, my therapy is always rooted from the Humanistic Philosophy that asserts:

People are inherently good and possess the innate ability to realize their full potential

As humans, we are whole; much greater than the sum of our parts

To realize our full potential, we must accept ourselves wholly in mind, body, and spirit, connect genuinely, and live authentically.

I specialize in Grief and Loss, Trauma/PTSD, Anger Management, and Borderline Personality Disorder. I offer individual sessions as well as couples' sessions and group sessions/workshops.


I help bring hope, healing, and direction to adults struggling to have healthy relationships and who are dealing with traumatic memories, grief, and anxiety. To do this, I rely heavily on the use of Gestalt, DBT, CBT, and Ego State Therapy Interventions.


You will learn that my therapy approach is not typical. I will not sit quietly nodding my head saying little more than, “Mm, hmm” while you spew your story and spill your guts only so that you can spend your hard-earned money feeling worse and not getting anything in return. I will have a conversation with you. I will give you feedback. I will poke holes in your maladaptive thought patterns. I will challenge you, I will frustrate you at times, and I absolutely will laugh with you. Why? Because you deserve a therapist who will work just as hard as you work, who is willing to let you see her human self, and who is strong enough to not bull-shit you.


I do not take insurance due to my desire to cater to my client's needs rather than the demands of insurance companies. I utilize a thoughtful sliding scale that most people find affordable. If you are ready, willing, and able to invest financially and emotionally in your healing, please call me.
