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.

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.

Crises and life transitions tend to spotlight where we need to grow. I have two typical clients. One is interested in ongoing psychotherapy and has often (though not necessarily) been in therapy before. The other is looking for shorter-term work to sort through a decision or transition. Depression, anxiety, "stuckness" or "emptiness" often inspire people to call. I work with adults of all backgrounds, but have niche experience with many chronic illnesses, including long COVID, MCAS, EDS and cancer; neurodiversity-affirming work with autism & ADHD; older adults & aging; and healthcare & mental health professionals.

By approaching therapy as a collaborative process, together we can begin to help you start a new path on your journey of life. I work with clients who want to make a healthy change in your life or seek help coping with new diagnoses. Often long-standing wounds of trauma, depression, or anxiety can get in the way. Together we can build your resources and resilience so that you fully realize your potential. I specialize working with older adults (50+) and their unique constellation of challenges, including health problems, managing chronic disease, and late life anxiety and depression.

I want to support those who are caring for loved, and not so loved ones, through their process of dementia. I know it's helpful to have a therapist who is familiar and experienced in this area of care. Don't be alone and frustrated, if you can help it. Therapy is a great way to provide support for yourself. Being open to healing old hurts if and when they come up is also very helpful. There are some things I cannot help with and will provide referrals as needed and available. Unfortunately, I do not take insurance at this time.

When your body is thrown a curveball due to a major medical condition, it’s normal to feel alone, anxious, and depressed. Similarly, if you’re in a role that’s focused on serving others - whether in your personal life, professional life, or both - often your own needs get pushed aside. This leads to burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. By using telehealth services at Sandstone Counseling, you can reclaim control over the trajectory of your life. Through evidence-based techniques, you'll learn additional coping skills, adjust to major life stressors, and reinvent yourself to become the person you want to be.

Group counseling can be especially helpful increasing self-awareness, creating support and experiencing validation.

I always start with where a client is and move through a process of self awareness and discovery that brings about lasting change and newfound joy. While that is not an easy process it is a journey I have found worth taking in my own life and feel honored to take in another's. I do not believe in a "cookie cutter" approach to recovery or self actualization. Each person I work with brings a special "psychological fingerprint" that encompasses both their past and their present life experiences. I look forward to traveling the path with you.

Most of my clients are highly sensitive people who have strong intuition and want to work in a deep way. They often are therapists, healers, psychics and people for whom direct experience spirituality is important. Many of them have experienced talk therapy and want to go deeper, recognizing that the roots of most emotional or cognitive issues are below ordinary consciousness. They are seeking life-changing experience rather than mental insight. They appreciate a therapist who can see and acknowledge their inherent wisdom and power as a soul, and they are seeking a therapist who is highly trained and also works intuitively.
