We are all but fellow travelers...

Great Oaks Therapy Center was a one woman show for two years before expanding into this beautiful group of clinicians that I'm proud to have working for Great Oaks. As the owner, my dream is that you all come to this space feeling welcomed, cared for, and ready for healing, for growth and for self-love.

We aren’t lost because we don’t know where we’re going; usually we are lost because when we don’t know where we are.

I value the whole: the whole person, the whole story, and the whole journey. Some of these moments, relationships, and experiences are beautiful. Some are tragic and painful. Many sit somewhere in between. No matter how disoriented, lost, or pained one might be, at the center is life and beauty waiting to be rediscovered and reclaimed. It is my passion, privilege, and desire to journey alongside you to rediscover your center, the core of who you are, and to launch you on your path to wholeness and vibrancy.

 

Passions, Populations, and Specializations:

Couples, Men, Sexuality, Spirituality,

Religious Wounding, Infidelity.

I am a certified Restoration Therapist.

Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we are.

Brené Brown

I’m in the business of story-shaping. I believe we become the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. Are you stuck in a story that feels disempowering or defeating? Let me be your co-author and collaborator in creating your counter story—a brand new, one-of-a-kind narrative that aligns with your truest, most authentic self. 

 

Passion Populations & Specializations: 

LGBTQ+, Couples, Women-Empowerment, Teens

 

Keepin’ It Real/My Therapeutic Style: 

As a former journalist turned therapist, I believe in giving voice to

the voiceless. In my work, I utilize an integration of Narrative, Solution-focused and Emotionally focused therapies, with dashes

of mindfulness and experiential pieces baked into the process, to create a nonjudgmental, compassionate and empowering space

that will allow each individual, couple or family to take back the

driver’s seat on their own lives.

Come and take one giant step into your healthier tomorrow.

Sometimes you just need to remember to not take yourself too seriously. I have the great privilege of working with fellow travelers on their journey to a peaceful and more fulfilling existence. Therapy is a mechanism to test your faith, try your courage and continue to grow into everything that you know you can be. Come take a walk with me; you never know which step is the one that changes everything.

Cupcakes are muffins that

believed in miracles.

  I have no clue who said this

My purpose as a fellow traveler in this beautiful world, is to bring humor (and healing) to whomever I can. Everyone has a story that holds value especially during those times of growth that often feel like immense struggle.

you're meant to be. It's easy." - the Beatles
