Are you ready to let go of what is no longer serving you and create change in your life? We all have times in our lives when we recognize that we are holding on to issues that are making our life more difficult than it needs to be, and we are ready to say "enough." These are pivotal moments when we can either react defensively or respond productively. Whether due to anxiety, relationship issues, chronic illness , premarital planning, managing transitions, or any number of other challenges that we can face in life, you do not have to figure it out on your own.

Has life become so challenging that you ask yourself, “Will it ever get easier?” As we journey down the road of life, we will run into bumps, make wrong turns, and even get into wrecks. When that happens, we need guidance to get back to being our happiest, healthiest selves. Whether you’re facing the stress from common life-cycle transitions (e.g., beginning a new career, facing a big move, etc.), experiencing a loss of “spark” in your relationship, noticing a breakdown in communication with family members, or facing the psychological and biological comorbidity of chronic illness , I am here to help you navigate the road ahead.

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.

By working collaboratively, we will work to adjust behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Serenity, Equanimity, Peace of Mind. Are these qualities sorely missing from your life? You are not alone. Most Westerners experience rushed living, lack of acceptance, anxious and depressed mood - what inevitably amounts to suffering. While pain is a universal experience, with practice suffering can become optional. But lack of skill, low motivation, and general haggardness of life prevent many from consistent self-care which can alleviate suffering. If this is your story, The Serenity Center was opened with you in mind. Reducing suffering to manageable levels is an achievable goal - and all you may need is a skillful guide.

You are ready for change, feeling stuck, angry, sick, and really not sure where to start. You may have health concerns and feel tired of taking pills that seem to mask the underlying condition(s). Stress from your job and/or life are overwhelming and something has got to give! Imagine a life where you are supported, cared for, and get back to feeling like you're "in the zone", which you have not felt for way too long. You are ready for doable changes in your life that add up to meaningful outcomes. You are ready to move forward into real health and true living.

Having difficulty coping with a stressful situation? Maybe you feel down or anxious. Or perhaps it feels like the same problems and relationship issues keep repeating. I provide results-oriented psychotherapy to help you feel better, while helping to resolve the root causes of your difficulties. My clients are interested in medium to longer-term psychotherapy and have often (though not necessarily) been in therapy before. At core is a desire to understand your True Self and what has shaped you emotionally.

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.
