About My Clients

I get it. Really I do. You are TIRED…tired of arguing with your significant other over petty things…tired of your child acting out and having people look at you as if you are a bad parent….tired of being the one that everyone runs to solve their problems, but yet no one is there for you when you need the help. You’re trying to hold it all together, but you can’t take it anymore. You want to cry, scream, runaway, bury yourself in bed. You’ve hit your breaking point and don’t know what to do.

My Background and Approach

I am known as the “cheerleading therapist.” Well, actually I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, however clients call me their cheerleader. Often those that choose to work with me do so because they are tired…tired of feeling sad, tired of feeling unsure of themselves, tired of feeling overwhelmed. They have reached their wits end and they just don’t know what to do. I know exactly how you feel as I have been there plenty of times myself. I've cried, yelled, screamed, ran away , shutdown, isolated (the list goes on). So know that you are not alone. Our sessions are all about you (I know this sounds surreal, but it's true). We'll work collaboratively to help reduce that TIRED and OVERWHELMED feelings. The goal is to help you rediscover your inner peace and to begin to take steps to living a more meaningful life. With every small milestone reached, I celebrate your accomplishments with you…hence becoming your biggest cheerleader.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

“Everyone wants a happy life and a peaceful mind, but we have to produce peace of mind through our own practice.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV We all have issues. That is one of the first things that I tell all my clients. Sometimes we are able to find a solution on our own and other times we have to reach out to someone to help us get a different perspective. I strongly believe through exploration and fulfillment of your goals, you WILL reach the level of happiness you desire, live the life you have envisioned and achieve a peace of mind.
