I am a licensed therapist trained in Brainspotting Phases 1 and 2 and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Although I am trauma-informed, I work in several other areas as well. Two of my core beliefs when it comes to therapy is that all people have the ability to change if they want to and all people could benefit from personal growth. My ultimate goal is to help people reach the best version of themselves. Life can be overwhelming and can leave you carrying a heavy weight. Counseling can help lighten that weight and build internal strength for the future.

Most of us struggle with depression, anxiety, or improving our relationships from time to time. But maybe you aren’t sure that’s you because you manage to carry on as usual as far as anyone else can see; it just doesn’t feel right. It’s too uncomfortable, empty, or numb. You feel guilty or hopeless; irritable or restless. Easy tasks have become impossible. Relationships, including work or parenting, leave you isolated, disappointed, or frustrated. Depression doesn’t always look like sadness and tears; Anxiety doesn’t always feel like worry or fear; and Relationships can be challenging even at the best of times.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired? Most people want to change, but don't know what steps to take. "Be transformed through the renewing of your mind." I believe that most people make choices based on their emotions. What happens when these emotions don't reflect the reality of your circumstances? The idea is, to change how you feel you must first change how you think. I love working with individuals who are motivated to change how they see themselves and the world around them.

Not taking new clients. I often describe myself as an "outside the box" therapist because I combine traditional psychotherapy with energy psychology. This is the fastest way I know to help people experience the changes they are seeking. With the interventions I use, it is possible to clear subconscious blocks that keep you from creating the life you want. You do not have to be in therapy for the rest of your life, nor do you have to re-live difficult experiences and trauma in order to heal.

From the moment we are born, our relational experiences with family, community, and nature become intimately intertwined with our physical and psychological development. Sometimes, in childhood or adulthood, life and relationships get messy and we come out of balance. I love walking alongside people who are recovering from the complexities of trauma and attachment wounds. In sessions, we explore and work to strengthen internal relationships among parts of self and then organically bring that healing and compassion outwards to help make everyday life a bit more fulfilling and in alignment with your sense of authenticity.

There are challenges, but as in the past, the bond within our community will help us overcome today's challenges. You may be feeling anxious about your career, workplace discrimination, relationships, or adapting to college. Many feel comfortable working on challenges with someone more likely to identify with their struggles. As a licensed psychologist for over 17 years, I have worked with teens, college students, and adults on a variety of issues. I utilize Teletherapy, which has been researched extensively and is an effective form of treatment.

One of the most powerful forces on earth comes from our relationships. Relationships provide a way for us to connect with others physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When our relationships suffer, we we are often deprived of the powerful force of human connection. Finding our way back to relationships and the connection they provide may seem difficult. Counseling provides a therapeutic relationship of human connection to build a bridge back to the relationships that are most meaningful for us. Stepping into something new like counseling when our relationships are broken can feel overwhelming.

I am a generalist practitioner, but the clients I treat often struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues. Trauma is also a significant issue for many clients seeking therapy services, although it is not uncommon for them to be unaware of how much their past experiences have influenced their present behaviors and beliefs.

I came into this field to merely help others and be there for all, no matter their situation, gender, ethnicity, race, or sexual orientation. I treat many issues based on the DSM-V. Most commonly are depression, anxiety, relational issues, marriage concerns/issues, bipolar, self esteem issues, among many more.

When facing trauma, anxiety, depression, life can feel pretty hard. There are probably times when you feel like the trauma is happening all over again or that your fears about what might happen paralyze you from making any decision, or it could be that depressive symptoms are making you feel sluggish, indecisive, and wanting to give up. I have compassion, understanding, experience, training, and skills to work with you to heal from trauma, manage anxiety symptoms, and feel good about your life. I promote healthy, positive thinking to improve emotional health, journey with you through trauma, and tools to cope and thrive.

Life can be challenging, overwhelming and, at times, just plain difficult! The good news is, it doesn't have to be- and you don't have to face these challenges alone. My approach is to offer compassionate support in a non-judgmental and empowering environment in which you or your child are the expert on your experiences. The goal of therapy is to empower you or your child to navigate life events, reduce stress and experience personal growth, as well as increase feelings of self worth and satisfaction with relationships.

Counseling isn’t simply a matter of somebody asking questions & giving advice, but rather learning the skills necessary to make sense of life and building the confidence to take care of ourselves. When we develop and consistently use these skills, we see our work and home life improve. We become more relaxed and comfortable within ourselves and able to meaningfully share our life with those we care about. I help people learn how to become the best version of themselves.
