Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

**NOW ACCEPTING AETNA INSURANCE. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant and deliver yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face. Sharing our bodies with another human is hard, being a new mom is hard, and this big change is hard! You are not alone.

If you're searching for a therapist who will encourage you to stay in counseling for years while holding your hand singing camp songs, I suggest you keep looking. But if you prefer a trained clinician whose approach to counseling is goal-oriented and solution-focused, give me a call. You can trust that I will be sensitive and empathetic, but since you are hiring me to do a job, I will be directive in identifying the best approach to solve your problems. I'm qualified to treat a wide variety of issues (see the list below), but the majority of my clinical practice focuses on Relational/Marriage issues as well as Anxiety/Depression.

As we age, I can't help but think that our lives may go off the path we originally intended. While life can be full of many positive changes and events, there may also be experiences in which one may develop feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and/or depression. It can be hard to recognize life isn't always 'perfect' and to determine how and where to give up control. It can be difficult to embrace the good and bad parts of our lives; but it can be just as empowering to develop the next chapter just as you would like it to be. My goal is to help you leap into the unknown, build more authenticity and awareness, and start living a life with more fulfillment.

Trauma can be understood as any extraordinarily stressful experience in life that has a lasting negative impact on someone. People who have suffered from PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Traumatic Events, Relationship Devastation, Emotional Neglect, Job Loss, and/or loss of a loved one often lost faith in counseling because regular talk therapy may have helped somewhat, but they didn’t actually “feel” (physically) better. Yet many symptoms and difficulties still plagued a person, even if they were “thinking right” about a past incident and trying to “move on.” It's time for a new approach. Trauma-Informed Interventions go beyond talk.
