My Journey and Work

Ready for Positive Change?

I am an experienced counselor who has been helping clients achieve optimal wellness since 2005.  I am passionate about helping others and believe growth can by a joyful process. I am dedicated to supporting your unique goals and together we will create a personalized plan to help you grow joyfully into your fullest self.  Setting clear intentions, embracing your authentic self, and living in alignment creates the happiness you deserve.  We will make meaningful changes to accomplish your goals through cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and a strengths-based approach to help you achieve lasting improvement.  You can share anything and everything without judgement and will be met with compassion, honesty, and care.  Contact me today to learn more and take a positive step towards your wellbeing.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves "Who am I to be brilliant, talented, fabulous, gorgeous?  Actually, who are you not to be!"

Counseling Services


I am honored to have worked with so many wonderful individuals who have shared their personal experiences with me. We have journeyed together to overcome stress, anxiety, depression, grief, low self-worth, relationship problems, parenting stress, life transitions and many other areas.  I have a particular passion and expertise in helping people recover from narcissistic abuse to find their light and strength again. Finding balance, setting boundaries, and remembering your joy are foundations to happiness.  We will identify coping tools, communication skills, and stress management techniques to gain greater satisfaction in your life.  Please feel free to email me for more information at

Candle in Glass Jar
The most amazing people in the world tend to be targets for narcissistic abuse.  Their light and empath qualities feed the narcissistic ego, often unknowingly and at the expense of their own wellness, until they become a shadow of who they once were.  Together we will learn effective boundaries and step back into your light! 
Speak to yourself in the same way you would speak to a best friend or loved one.  We are all worthy of compassion and a loving inner voice.  Become your own biggest cheerleader and let go of that negative inner critic!  
Emotions can at times feel like the waves of the ocean.  Intense and powerful yet once acknowledged can be appreciated for its strength and beauty.  If ignored, the undercurrents can pull you down and spin you out of control.  Together we can learn to acknowledge, validate, and release emotions to gain the peace you deserve.
