**Not currently accepting new clients** Feeling like your child needs therapy, but you have no idea how it will work virtually? I offer play therapy that engages children virtually! Then they can get the help they need, and in a safe way. In my practice, I recognize that as people we have many different emotions and experiences that drive us. Sometimes we do not understand what we are feeling, why we are feeling it, and why we are responding the way that we are. That is why I am passionate about helping my clients create a better understanding of themselves that creates a positive change to bring healing.

Not interested in taking medications? At The Well Being, I provide my clients with 10+ years of experience as a therapist, and an opportunity for them to begin using cardiovascular exercise as an effective mental health "medication" . At The Well Being, I offer traditional outpatient counseling services, largely based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (I was trained at the Beck Institute), while also providing the means for exercise to become a key component of your treatment. This is an alternative evidence-based approach for those who aren't interested in taking medications, or a more comprehensive alternative for those who are.

The invitation of collaborative counseling is to join together to listen to the story of your life and the unique challenges you face. It may be hearing your story out loud, remembering a particular strength or value, rehearsing changes in behaviors or thinking or simply being together with a supportive ally. Developing a trusting relationship where self understanding can flourish, provides space for unpacking the wounds and distress you may be experiencing.

Experiencing trauma of any kind can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. It can stop us in our tracks and upend life as we know it. Although it can seem impossible, healing from trauma is possible. My hope is to help others go from surviving to thriving despite life’s challenges. Facing trauma can be lonely and confusing, but you don't have to sort through it on your own. Trauma is complicated and one can experience a range of emotions such as: anger, grief, fear, sadness, anxiety and guilt. I would love to help you work through these feelings and move towards healing and peace.

I work well with clients seeking help for problems with anxiety and depression. Those referred to me with these issues find that symptomatically they are struggling with panic, sleep disturbances, worry thoughts, self-defeating thoughts/behaviors, eating disorders,addictions and unknowingly, at times, some of their difficulties have been attached to old trauma. Many people with these sorts of struggles find that this spills over into problems with relationships and/or functioning at work and school. Areas of intimacy, both emotional and sexual are important work also. I work with individuals, married couples,families, and groups.

One of our most important relationships is the one we have with ourselves. How we talk to ourselves, treat ourselves, and view ourselves impacts our daily living and the relationships around us. Therapy provides an opportunity to gain awareness of how we relate to ourselves and others. We begin to recognize our relational patterns and understand how these patterns were developed and are maintained. Through this self-understanding, we can begin to learn new ways of being with ourselves and others.

If I could sum up what I want to help people find in my work as a therapist in one word - it would be FREEDOM. To be honest, I struggle to write these entries because there can be so much cliche' and it all starts to sound the same... But that's really what I long to do - help others find freedom... Whether it's breaking free from past trauma, finding freedom from constant conflict in relationships, or becoming free to be completely true to oneself. I believe so much of that can come from simply having a safe place and a safe person with whom to process, vent, explore and ultimately heal. It'd be my honor to take that walk with you.
