Congratulations! You have taken the first (and I think) hardest step towards feeling better! It is NOT EASY to admit you need help and even more difficult to ask for it. How well I know! Yet, here you are - and I thank you for being curious and seeking out my services for psychotherapy.


I am an advanced practice adult psychiatric clinical nurse specialist and treat clients 18 and over. I have expertise in women's mental health issues; particularly those related to prenatal/postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, sexuality, relationships, perfectionism, disordered eating/body image, stress, coping, and life transitions. I am also qualified to assist fellow nurses, college students, and travelers with their unique concerns. Wounded healers have a special place in my "workbasket of deservables." I use an eclectic model in my practice, with an emphasis on mainly solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapies. I may also use bibliotherapy, poetry, music, and journaling in our work together. Although I am NOT a nurse practitioner and do NOT PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS, I do medication teaching, evaluation, supervision, and follow up, as necessary. I know how daunting it can be to seek and to find a qualified person to invest your time and trust in to guide you along the way to looking at yourself and your life in order to make changes and eventually feel better. Again, many thanks for considering me and I look forward to working with you soon.
