When life is overwhelming, I can help! We work together at your pace to help you manage the stressors in your life with safety & trust. I treat adults, older teens, and couples struggling with depression, grief/ loss, anxiety & panic attacks, relationship challenges, pregnancy & postpartum struggles (certified by PSI), addiction, past sexual assault and/or abuse, and life stress. I have a background in alternative health and I value a holistic approach that integrates health, relationships, and harnessing YOUR personal power in your life!
Welcome to 2022, like it or not! Depression, Anxiety, Identity, Anger, Sexuality, Addiction, Loss, Relationships + Veterans issues are some pressures that PUSH men "into a corner", sucking productivity, self-purpose & effecting masculinity. If you want to be THAT GUY that stands out in a room & has a handle on his stuff, you can reach inwards to the man that you're confident that lives deep inside of yourself. Whether life beats you down, stress burdens you or you really want to be WHO WERE MEANT TO BE, reach out of your fearful uncertainty and connect with me and my team. The REACHING OUT can be difficult. Step Up & Stand out!
Do you often feel run down or anxious over your life? Do you wonder if counseling/therapy would help you develop and live a life you love? These questions can often be related back to some trauma that continue to cause trouble for you in your present life. I have been serving the Lake Havasu City community for the past 18 years and would like to connect with you to work together to get you to a better place in your life.
Thank you for visiting my profile! Working with you, my aim is to help you find a place within yourself where you are able to be honest, locate your inner resiliency, and strengthen your ability to cope in a healthy manner. My main areas of focus include trauma processing and attachment issues. The main modalities I use include talk therapy to build rapport and a sense of feeling seen, EMDR to help process trauma, and neurofeedback to help regulate and retrain the mind. I believe talk therapy can be very helpful and validating, but I would often come to find that my clients (and myself) would hit a plateau at a certain point.
My goal is to listen to you, and to help empower you as we walk together on your healing path. There are no "one-size-fits-all approaches" therefore, I will use a variety of approaches including EMDR and parts work to help you to meet your goals. I believe in creating a safe and supportive environment in which my clients can develop self-awareness, achieve greater insight, reduce depression, stress, anxiety, find purpose and meaning, reach life goals, improve relationships, and live a fully integrated life. I strive to provide a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental space for all clients to explore thoughts and feelings.
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! When looking for a therapist, don't you want to feel that you can open up to them? I understand that each individual needs a nurturing environment where they can be vulnerable and not feel judged. It is important to me that anyone who walks through the door knows that they will be heard, by a trustworthy, educated, knowledgeable and openminded therapist. I have experience working with couples, families, and individuals. Working on solutions is an approach that seems to be favored. It helps clients focus on what their goals are and I can help with that.
