"Don't know what to do"? I can help you figure it out! "Need someone to talk to!" I'm here. The change process doesn't have to be complicated. When you are so caught up in your emotion you may not be able to see the bigger picture. You remember those "dot to dot" puzzles you used to do when you were a child right? Where you started at 1 then had to find 2 and connected the line chronologically until you could tell what the picture was supposed to be. I can understand your pain. In therapy I will help you connect the dots, so that you can learn to manage your difficulties and transform your life.

Do you struggle with body image? Do you agonize over your food intake or spend countless hours in the gym trying to reach the perfect size or weight? Or maybe you feel like you’re never enough. Not pretty enough, not thin enough, not smart enough, or not fit enough. No matter your concerns, whether it is disordered eating, distorted self-image, or other issues, my goal is to help you become free of the negative thoughts spiraling in your head and assist you in learning self-acceptance. I adopt a holistic approach and believe that everyone has the capability within them to heal themselves but nobody was meant to do it alone.

As part of the human family, I believe we can share with one another these experiences, and through empathy we can help one another get through the difficulties of life, while at the same time giving one another permission to enjoy the beauty that this life has to offer.

My approach is both directive and accepting. I am a client-centered therapist. I can help solve problems that can take years to resolve on their own by teaching new skills and giving homework to practice in between sessions. At the same time I allow clients to dictate the goals, pace, and intensity of their counseling sessions. I don't fix people. I look for what is going right and help you or your relationship do more of it.

Is your child's ADHD getting in the way of how amazing and smart you know they really are? It is frustrating knowing their potential but watching them struggle to focus, follow directions, sit still or listen in school or at home. Most parents fear how their child will get through the week, or school year, but all parents are terrified how their child will get through life without struggling so hard. Throughout counseling we will move you and your child away from the "deficit" label; the only "disorders" are the stigmas placed on those diagnosed.

Reclaim Your Story. Let's take this liberating journey together. So often we allow the wants, needs, and expectations of other to dictate the path that we take in life, only to find out that what we really want is to be authentic. Your hopes and dreams are valid, they are truly yours. You can start that new business, change careers, walk away from an unhealthy abusive situation, walk in the gifts that you have to share with the world. Staying connect to those significant family and friends in this process of becoming comfortable being your authentic self can be challenging. But it is possible. It's time. You deserve it.
