Having been in the field of behavioral health and counseling for 10 years I can understand that we all experience trauma and severe life stressors' that leave us feeling stuck and hopeless. Your crisis may be a breakup, depression, relationship issues, anxiety, chronic illness, or something that is so overwhelming that you are struggling with life. Often times we hold ourselves in bondage to the choices we have made. I believe some of life's most difficult experiences lead us to our most extraordinary growth. I will give you the tools to move forward from past attachments that seem to keep you stagnate in your life.

I am an innovative, experienced social worker committed to my client's well-being. I am passionate about helping clients improve their relationships with themselves, families, and friends by enhancing their communication and increasing their emotional intelligence. I am committed to assisting clients in regaining a sense of meaning and purpose by redefining their values, beliefs, needs, and goals. Mutual trust, respect, consistency, empathy, and rapport allow the time spent exploring patterns, identifying problem areas, and developing newer and healthier ways to cope with everyday stressors and struggles.

Relationships and life in general can be stressful, frustrating and disappointing. We are often taught to work more, give everything, be more, try harder and keep going at all costs. But for many of us, this becomes a never-ending cycle of exhaustion that can lead to anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide you with a safe, collaborative, and non-judgmental environment in order to help you develop the confidence to get what you want out of your life. I am passionate about self-care and I believe caring for your mental health should be given the same attention as caring for your physical health.

Are you seeking an unbiased person open to listening and discussing your thoughts? Sometimes we all need that! Life often brings us curve balls in the form of relational, career, racial, marital or family conflict that cause us to question who we are. These situations rattle our emotions to our core or change the normality that we call our life. During these times the ability to work through this with someone who specializes in transitional change maybe the answer!

ONLY accepting Couples/Families at this time. You acknowledge that you need or want professional help confronting past or new trauma, or initiating your self-awareness journey. You are imperfect, yet resourceful. You feel alone or perhaps you feel crowded. You please people while your needs go unmet. Your smile is phony because your heart is heavy. You have either never tried therapy, or this is not your first rodeo. You want to improve your relationship with self, or with your child, your parental figure(s), your partner or partners. All are welcome. You are ready for change no matter how unbearable.

What type of Phoenix mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Phoenix?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
