Counseling has been defined as "helping others to help themselves". Our journey in life often takes unexpected and unwanted twists and turns. Sometimes a little help is all that's needed to navigate the obstacles and regain our path. It would be my honor to help you to live the life you desire. Help comes through an offer of a warm, inviting environment with a compassionate, nonjudgmental listener. My role is not to tell you what to do or what to think but to help and to guide. I would love the opportunity to talk with you to assist you on your personal journey.

I read this simple sentence several years ago: You have survived 100% of your worst days. It’s my go-to reminder we are all built for survival. I believe each individual holds within them a unique set of strengths and skills to help navigate life and all its challenges. During times of change, stress, or crisis, we often feel unable to access and use the skills and tools that could help us move forward. Issues like depression or anxiety can leave us feeling powerless. My passion is helping people of all ages and backgrounds discover and utilize the power and skills deep within them so they can achieve their goals.

The challenges and difficulties of life can cause a person to feel defeated, hurt, and overwhelmed. Having no one to understand the heartache, frustration, and worries is tiring. Sometimes the only way to get through life is to hide away in a safe space while struggling to make it through another day. That safe space has caused you to feel trapped and miserable in a dark place, wondering what your purpose for living is. You are tired of feeling judged and not heard when you have taken the risk to share your story with others. Instead, you just wish someone would stop and listen without judgement to your story and offer some hope.

Balancing responsibilities, relationships, and self-care can be so difficult. Sometimes it even feels a little hopeless. Having an adaptive relationship with yourself, with other people, and with the world around you is crucial for personal growth and emotional health. But what if you don't have a great relationship with yourself? What do you do when your Inner Critic keeps telling you you're not good enough?

Now accepting BCBS Insurance. You’re on call 24/7, always needed, always giving. While caregiving is your passion and your calling- you're just exhausted. You want and need to be there for the important people in your life. You've dedicated yourself to helping clients, customers, family, friends, or patients in need. But somehow it's simultaneously fulfilling and draining. You need a vacation. But who needs those anyway? You'll be okay... right? Giving is a noble value. It is so important to leave this world better than you found it. But you can't pour from an empty cup.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative partnership, between the therapist and client, that creates felt safety and fosters vulnerability and healing. My goal is to utilize the therapeutic process as a mirror that allows clients to see themselves, their histories, and their relationships with more depth, understanding, and clarity. I provide clients with a non-judgmental space to explore and process what they bring in with them to each session while helping them build emotional awareness and coping skills that they can carry with them into everyday life. I enjoy working with adults, teens, children, and families.

I have helped people deal with ADHD, loss and grief, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress, self esteem, parenting issues, communication, and just life in general....

Sometimes when you are struggling, you need a little help to figure out how to struggle better, and that is more than ok.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
