Being pulled in many different directions is exhausting. Work, family and personal stress can be overwhelming, and cause us to shut down, become upset or even feel anxious. From work to sleep to relationships, joy is missing. You might feel burned out, alone, and perhaps disconnected from your own body. You might have tried other resources and they aren't working. You don’t know where to turn. Here’s where I come in. I have worked through personal trauma, work-related stress, and experienced career changes. Now I seek to provide a safe place for people to find a helpful way forward.
I use science-based approaches to better understand your challenges and then help you use your strengths. I can work with those for whom their faith is a resource or a source of pain. Together we develop a plan so you can address the challenges you face including work issues, relationship struggles, trauma, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.
Start your transformation from feeling stressed-out to gaining calm, clarity and thriving. Working together we will identify your goals and what steps you can take. I look forward to meeting with you. Follow the email link below or call the number at the top of this page to make an appointment or a complimentary consultation.

I work with clients and meet them where they are at. Initial sessions can include exploration of significant issues, and creating a plan for addressing these issues. Often the first meeting can be very helpful to getting your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first few weeks and then sustained improvement.

I use a client-centered approach. The first session focuses on your story, what brought you to therapy, and then deciding what would be most helpful to you. Depending your situation and your strengths, we start by creating a safe place for you and then work to explore difficult emotions or unhelpful thought patterns. Using your strengths, we will work through issues so your resilience increases.
