Telehealth and in-person appointments available!


Have you had a recent medical diagnosis and find yourself grappling with your new “normal”? Have you been living with a chronic illness and feeling overwhelmed? Have you been caretaking someone and need support? I have a passion for the complexities and challenges of physical wellbeing and understand the difficulties of coping with and helping those who face physical challenges.

I specialize in helping clients to adjust and cope with the psychological and emotional impact of living with neurocognitive disorders, HIV/AIDS, dementia, strokes, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and many other illnesses. No one knows your experiences better than you do.

My role as a therapist is not to tell you what you already know. Instead, I help to create an environment in which we can explore the uncertainties and help you figure out what to do next. I've spent a lot of time sitting beside caregivers and family members, helping them process their thoughts and feelings. I know that providing care and support to those you love can be a full-time job. It can be easy to place your own needs on the back burner. I encourage you to remember that your needs and feelings matter, too.
