Some of the reasons people come in for counseling include: * Anxiety * Depression * Interpersonal/relationship issues * Low self-esteem * Identity concerns * Crisis needs * Loss of a loved one * Spiritual crisis Counseling is about restoring balance to life.
Most of the time life goes along well and we feel satisfied with how things are going and what we are accomplishing. Then there are times when we feel out of sync, like we’re stepping on our own opportunities. We are sure there is a better way but we don’t know what it is. These are the times when personal counseling can be very helpful to get back on track and experience the sense of satisfaction, accomplishment and happiness we know we are entitled to.

Are you tired of feeling like a prisoner of your past or current situation? The therapy relationship is a powerful experience that can provide healing in many ways; you don’t have to go through life’s trials alone. As humans, we share the common vulnerability of struggling with some form of suffering. Psychotherapy is a safe place for healing and moving through life challenges. I primarily use EMDR, self-compassion skills, and cognitive behavioral skills to assist my clients in the therapeutic process.

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. I have always had a bit of a different approach to healing than traditional therapy. My studies have been both in counseling and in spiritual arts, including astrology, chakras and energy/sound healing. Each of us has certain patterns, ways we exist in this world. This brings us preferences and personality traits. I can help you to better understand yourself, your needs and to use your energies most effectively. Healing blockages frees you from past traumas and current emotional patterns. I can help you to shift your life to more ease, joy and peace through understanding and release.

I specialize in working with developmental trauma, or complex PTSD. Developmental trauma can be defined as growing up in an environment (family, culture, society, religion) that was less than nurturing, or that did not consistently meet our needs. Most of us had a childhood experience that could meet this definition to some degree. Symptoms of developmental trauma can manifest as depression, anxiety, apathy, unhealthy expression of anger, hopelessness, addictive behaviors, relationship challenges, general discontent with life, and other issues that prevent one from feeling at peace and living life in one's most authentic truth.

Hello. I know looking for a therapist can often be frustrating and requires courage. Taking steps toward your overall wellbeing and health are important. With the severity of stressors in our lives today, it is even more important to address the symptoms like anxiety, fear, depression, isolation, and relationship issues present in our lives. Many times these symptoms are effects of traumas, past and/or present that can include childhood abuse, sexual, physical, and psychological abuse, grief, loss, toxic work environments, navigating difficult family situations, and unexpected news.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
