When you turn your suffering into a positive learning experience,

Pain Becomes Empowerment!

Through counseling and empathic support, I help women effectively manage depression and anxiety in order to live a more fulfilled life.

I'm glad you found me.

My ability to help you heal and support comes from my own scars and personal history, as well as 17+ years of professional experience with counseling women. The knowledge of self-improvement comes from a unique place best understood by another woman who has been there and understands.

Through counseling you gain strength, self-confidence and emotional stamina. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by your experiences you can surface a much smarter, self-reliant person more able to manage depression and anxiety so you can search out healthy situations that sustain and nurture you.

"I want to make sure you know how much of a positive influence you have made in my life the past year. I always felt more empowered leaving your sessions then when I walked in. I constantly think back to little pointers you have told me along the way. It's a great thing I found you when I did. You exceeded my every expectation of what a therapist could and should do for an individual in need. I thank you for being so good at what you do. Again thank you for being one of many lights in my darkness". 

"You were the one who helped me get off the fence.  I felt your support and heard your positive voice in my head when I was stuck.  Talking with you, hearing myself describe my life was eye opening.  My negative self talk has since been interrupted by things I remember you saying to me or imagining what you would ask me next. 

I will always remember you. I am happier than I've been in my life.  I am proud of myself.  I found I am stronger than I thought and I do have courage to make a life I want. 

BTW, everything has worked out better than I could have hoped. I am engaged to the wonderful man who stood by me through years of my being frozen in place unable to do anything. Thank you!"

“I wanted to let you know that I think you are awesome! you really helped me to validate my feelings, identify key patterns I needed to break and to live in the now versus striving to fix quickly and dash into the future. I am still a planner but I have come along way since we have met - I found myself, peace and ultimately the freedom I was searching for… and just when I was not looking I met my future husband. We are getting married!



“You are a blessing. I realize this email is literally a year out and you might not remember me BUT you made a huge difference in my life.
