*Online sessions available* If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own. Not understanding your worth, you may struggle following your dreams or have a career where you feel overworked and under valued. You deserve the confidence to feel in control in your life.

The foundation of my practice is based on the 4 principles of Empathy, Encouragement, Awareness, and Empowerment. I believe the objective of counseling is to help individuals make sense out of emotional chaos. This comes through primarily understanding two things, 1. We are products of our environment, we do what we know. 2. We all have the power to change unhealthy or unwanted behavior. My experience as a Crisis Counselor as well as an individual counselor has given me experience with just about any issue. Please let me know what you're struggling with and we can determine together if I can be supportive.

I have seen people struggle for years with depression and/or anxiety caused by negative thoughts we have about ourselves from things we have been through in life, some things big and bad, others unintentional or seemingly benign. While we all experience challenges in life, you don't deserve to suffer and I can/want to help you find that relief. Medication helps, but is not the answer to long term recovery. Regular talk therapy is helpful, but also not the answer to long term recovery. EMDR therapy has been the most hopeful service for long term recovery I have found and the benefits can be physiologically understood.

Borderline Personality Therapists
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
