Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

If your marriage has too much conflict, too little togetherness, or it just feels like you've gone in different directions, I can help you get back on the track you want to be on. Some times the patterns that are developed in marriage need a little jolt in order to shift onto a better path. Working on these issues with practical tools in the context of your life in Christ gives you resources that are unavailable simply working on these things yourselves. If you are an individual struggling with anxiety or depression or relational problems, I can also help you with a plan and tools to handle life more effectively.

Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive.

Life is not easy and we can all lose our footing. It's easy to start thinking we can never be happy again. My goal is helping you find your capacity for meaningful change. Having the support system of a therapist is a powerful tool. My approach is direct and engaging (and it is okay for us to use humor). I work with adults and am an active participant in the session. Life transitions can really throw us, and it is not because we are weak, it is because we are normal. I will help you use adversity to become resilient.

One of the early questions I ask a new client is, "where are you hoping this relationship will take you?". For some, the answer to this question is clear. They imagine a life where their anxiety or depressive symptoms no longer get in the way of attending school or work, spending time with friends and enjoying their days. Others hope for a time when they feel physically and emotionally well enough to enjoy each day. Many people struggle with a vision for their future. Often, the path behind us is full of wrong turns or the path ahead feels full of obstacles. Regardless of where you are, I will join with you and support your journey.

I practice Integrative Psychotherapy, which incorporates all aspects of the person in the change process. Many people who seek counseling do so as a result of experiencing a problem that they cannot resolve on their own. This creates difficulties in moods, behaviors, and relationships as that problem begins to drain their energy and attention. My goal is to assist you in re-connecting with a sense of balance, or integration, in your life.

Are you feeling increasingly lonely, stuck, or overwhelmed? While we are built to survive and adapt, all of us at some point will likely struggle with change, loss, traumatic stress, intrusive worries, mood swings, relationship difficulties, or self-defeating patterns. We look inside and out for support, relief, and perspective, to help us at work, school, home and in-between. This search can often be exausting and frustrating, which can lead to the wise and couragous choice to ask for help.
