Most of us arrive at times when we can benefit from talking with a knowledgeable person who can listen with the objective of helping us to understand ourselves. My goal as a counselor is to help each person know and accept themselves. When I can provide that kind of counseling relationship, clients are much more likely to find their own strengths and wisdom. By listening with compassion and empathy, rather than judgment, I am more likely to help clients find greater harmony and peace in their relationships.

If you feel depressed, sad, numb, anxious, have negative thoughts about yourself, or can’t quite put your finger on it, you probably wish things could be different. I’m here to tell you they can be! At times do you feel helpless, hopeless, worthless, or a combination of the three? If so, I applaud you for taking the important step of seeking a therapist. I specialize in treating individuals with depression & anxiety, those who are “people pleasers”, couples experiencing relationship challenges, and co-parenting & blended family issues. I see adults ages 19 and up and enjoy working with individuals and couples.

Whatever it is, telling your story to someone safe can make all the difference. I am here to help you find the words. You have a unique story that deserves to be told. You might have been taught or forced to keep your truths a secret. You may be feeling ashamed as though who you are is not worthy of love and acceptance. Perhaps you have had to endure being misunderstood, bullied, or abandoned. It is possible that you have developed unhealthy coping skills to survive and it is time to learn some new ones. There is no shame in how you have survived and I am happy you are here.

It's not about the alcohol. It's not about the drugs. It's not food, relationships, gambling, sex or porn. It's about "Pain". We all have pain and how it is treated will determine the quality of the recovery. Many programs do a disservice to clients focusing "too much" on the addiction. Certainly the addiction needs to be arrested but if the pain is not, the addiction will continue. We see relationships, marriages and families get better all the time when the pain is addressed. We have created a safe place that allows this healing to take place.

Life is a journey and many times it is not easy. My goal and purpose in counseling is to help my clients through the challenges and crises of life. In those difficult times it is hard to be objective and make the best decisions for ourselves and others. The counseling process can provide new objective perspectives and understanding. I listen, understand, stay calm and am not judgmental. Since we are created spiritual as well as physical and psychological I believe including the spiritual component can bring resolution to the source of the issues and not just symptom reduction.

It seems that hearing what your partner meant to say is a difficult skill to master. However, learning to say what you intend to be heard is even more difficult. Imagine what it would be like if your partner, family or friends heard ONLY what you meant. Imagine if messages were delivered in such a way that no one took things the wrong way. I teach communication skills to couples, families and individuals and employers. Improvements in communication is the foundation for improving relationships.

There is no better time than the present to make changes. Are you tired of not making the most of your life? Is parenting, life changes, stress, or negativity making life harder? I sincerely believe that people want to make positive changes in their lives but often times do not know where to start or how to remain consistent with those changes. I enjoy working with clients that are motivated to change. Because some people may be apprehensive about starting counseling, I work to create an atmosphere that is non-judgmental. In addition, I strive to build a partnership with the client as we work toward the same goals.

My ideal client is one that perhaps is not very sure what they need or want, but is open to discussing, exploring, and addressing any issues that may arise. They are particularly uncomfortable with being vulnerable, but will allow a few conversations to explore what their particular and specific issues may be, including past traumas and sexual abuse issues. This client would be open to exploring their spirituality (not religion) as a means of improving coping skills and strategies.
