If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

Do you feel isolated, confused and purposeless, or question who you are? What about anxious or like you’re not enough? Do you look in the mirror and wonder what it would be like if you loved yourself? There’s probably also areas of life where you wish things were in alignment, but they’re not. Life is messy, period. It’s confusing, overwhelming, and often filled with unexpected twists and turns. My goals are to help you develop your awareness and acceptance of self; to feel heard, seen, and supported; and to gain skills and confidence. We can’t change life, but we can learn to trust ourselves when navigating the beautiful mess.

You’re reluctant about medication. A loved one, therapist or doctor recommend you consider medication. It’s been in the back of your mind for a while now. Your our symptoms are almost unbearable. Your performance at work is starting to slip. Your relationships feel distant or a bit rocky. Right now, you just don’t have the emotional and physical energy you need to be present for the people you love. Yet you've continued to push forward everyday white knuckling life. And that is no way to live. It's time to love your life! At this point you’re willing to do whatever it takes to feel like yourself again.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.

I work with adults and teens going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

Fighting constantly in your relationship, but never solving anything? Or giving up on fighting because 'what's the point?' Wondering how to recover after an affair? You're absolutely in the right place. You probably want to mend your relationship, gain a sense of peace and clarity for moving forward, or reconnect and figure this out together. Relationships can make us both elated and devastated. I help partners identify the core problems and rebuild from there in such a way that each person feels understood, heard, and validated. You can expect lots of support, empathy, validation, and a safe place to learn how to move forward.

If you feel like you're lacking purpose, desire healthier relationships, want a great relationship with food, or lack positive coping for success in life, then you're in the right place. You might write yourself off as lazy or beat yourself up for not having it all together. What I've come to find is that people like you DO have it together, but seeing that you're enough includes chipping away at the thick wall of protection you've built. This is what I love, and what I'm good at. Together, we can help you to feel happier and healthier in every aspect of life, as well as full of the self-love that you so badly deserve. We got this.
