Parenting is tough. When life with your child or teen is not going well, it can be soul crushing. You want your child to be successful, feel good about themselves and have positive peer relationships, but instead you might be finding yourself in control battles or in constant worry about them. Maybe you're at the stage where your relationship with your teen is changing. You're not able to protect or control what happens to them the way you used to. Your teen is distancing and wanting independence, which leaves you feeling frustrated and stressed. ADHD, social challenges, or adoption adds another layer of complexity to parenting.

Therapy can be intimidating as it's one of the more intimate activities you will engage in. Of course, how could it not be; you walk into a room with a stranger, expecting to discuss in detail your inner thoughts, emotions, & current stressors. For therapy to work it's important you feel safe, welcomed & confident in your therapist. I can be that therapist for you. I will provide you & your family a warm, nurturing environment where you can begin to address your needs without fear of judgement or ridicule as we begin your journey toward healing.

One of the most important lessons I have learned as a therapist is that therapy requires more than a one size fits all approach. I treat every person as an individual. I lean on my years of experience and use a multitude of treatment modalities to treat your individual needs. We can work together to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. I have treated individuals with a variety of issues, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, dissociative identity disorder, substance abuse disorders, anger, and more. I have also helped families and couples achieve harmony and improve their relationships and communication.

Please note my practice has a short waiting list. We as people are are all broken on some level, but we don't need to stay that way. Depending upon the cards we've been dealt in life (what's been done to us, and what we've done to ourselves) fractures in our world view, relationships, and self concept arise. I work best with a client who comes willingly to counseling, is motivated for change, and is open minded to new perspectives of responding to their problems. Many clients comment on the speed with which we are able to resolve their individual concerns.

We have wanted to go back to work or school for years, but no one said returning to "normal life" would be so stressful. Millions of people are experiencing social and medical anxiety reengaging with the very lives we mourned the loss of for two years. Fears of covid, RSV, the flu and even the fragility of living have turned many of us into hypervigilant stressballs, to say nothing of returning to the simple acts of remembering how to do "small talk" around the water cooler again. Who'd have thought the thing we wanted the most is the now the greatest source of stress in our lives? If this is you, I see you...

My ideal client takes many different forms but they are all individualized. My client is suffering and I see it as my role to reduce human suffering so that it is no longer unbearable. I provide both short term (goal oriented), and long term (perhaps, more Existential and Gestalt based) therapy. I'm not going to change your personality, why would I? That makes you the unique individual that you are. However, my goal is to adjust and provide strategies for harmful behaviors that cause suffering and an inability to live in peace with others.

I love working with children, families, and adults at all stages of life. The work I do is strength based approach and borrowing from a variety of therapy modalities. I have experience working with trauma, OCD, ADHD, behavioral problems, depression, marital conflicts, and dealing with divorce. EMDR trained therapists to support work on trauma that can be big traumas as well as little traumas. Often time little traumas in the past cause us distress that impact our life today.

You'll find that I'm not your typical patches-on-the-sleeves, "tell me about your mother" style therapist. After a career as a first responder, I have come in contact with a great many mental health challenges. My clients will find I am very empathetic while at the same time no-nonsense and to the point. Together, we'll explore what your challenges have been historically and find new ways to approach the life (and ultimately, happiness) for which you're looking.

Immediate openings in the mornings. Are you experiencing sadness, anxiety, or low motivation? Are you struggling with peer or family relationships? Do you find yourself ruminating over decisions and unable to move on? Do you use unhealthy means of coping with stress? If you or your teen have answered yes to any of these questions (or have other emotional concerns), I may be able to help. As a client-centered therapist, I believe that healing begins with a strong therapeutic relationship; one that is genuine and compassionate.

What type of Brentwood mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Brentwood?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
