Sometimes we experience things that are so life changing that we us lose sight of our hopes and dreams. We can be fooled into believing that we will never be okay again. We do not have to be defined by what has happened to us. I believe that no matter what they have been through people have the potential to create for themselves a happy, rich and full life worth living. It is not easy to overcome bad things but it is possible. If you are tired of being limited and ready to make real changes therapy can help you create the life you wish to have.

Beginning with a new therapist can be anxiety provoking. It's difficult to know who the "right" therapist will be for you. My focus will be getting to know you and what your goals are for therapy. I enjoy teaching coping skills to manage anxiety and depressive symptoms. I also am a Certified Grief Counselor. I understand the grieving process and how to help support you through this transition. Grieving isn't only seen with death but also with loss of marriage, home, job, friendship, etc. My practice is located on a lake where we can practice mindfulness exercises and focus on calming energy.

Welcome and congratulations on making your self-care a priority! I bring nearly two decades of experience to my clients who originally come to talk about a pressing issue on their minds but discover other underlying issues or life circumstances had more to do with their reasons for seeking counsel. Maybe there is family relations, substance abuse or family secrets that cause you anguish. Maybe you just want to find someone to listen to what you're going through. You will benefit from my experience working at various places (prison, community mental health agencies). Together we can sort through it.

"Life is difficult." That's a Scott Peck quote. Healing begins just by embracing this quote. Three simple words, but on a bad day, very true, right? Sunny days seem inaccessible. You've already taken the first step, which is realizing that the listening ear of a therapist just might be helpful. After graduating from Boston U, my emphasis became adolescents, family relationships, and women's issues. This is my practice emphasis, but my door is open to all who are interested in growth and self-reflection.

I will work with you to eliminate shame and blame in order to shift to compassionate understanding to promote change and growth in the richness of the new relationship with yourself & others. It is so easy in this busy life to simply lose touch with your truth. A primary focus of our work together will be to expand your consciousness and understanding of dysfunctional beliefs in order to facilitate choice and change in regards to how you communicate and operate in your world. As you become more psychologically mature, you will then be able to live an authentic life which will foster true happiness.

Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

Life is beautiful even through all its struggles and disappointments. I believe the connections we make with others give us purpose and drive to fulfill our dreams. Though sometimes our intentions do not manifest and we become stagnant and distressed. In my therapy I like to focus on what we can control...ourselves. To take a look inward and view our most delicate fears, insecurities, and desires can be a lot of hard work. I approach each client with this recognition and strive to make a true connection to help foster self-improvement and life satisfaction.

I am a second-generation Christian family therapist who has been in practice since 1987, married for 34 years, 2 adult twin daughters, and now 2 sons (both daughters married). My overall philosophy is to assist clients in bringing balance to their lives by examining the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of their lives. It is important to see the individual as a part of a system, as what may work for one person may not work for another due to current family dynamics and unresolved issues from their past.

We all have challenges in life. Sometimes those challenges overwhelm our natural coping abilities. Sometimes relationships feel unmanageable. Sometimes habits have become addictions. Sometimes we get so worried about the kids, work, LIFE that we stop sleeping, eating or exercising. Sometimes things feel so dark it feels hard to go on. Sometimes we just lose enthusiasm for things we used to enjoy. Sometimes we just feel worthless and hopeless.
