I have worked in several areas of mental health care and have truly found my purpose and passion in assisting those who struggle with trauma and/or addiction. I understand how trauma has been locked within the psyche and having an individual feel as though they are stuck within themselves. I understand that addiction was a solution to several problems at the time because it allowed relief but in reality it only masked the underlying issues. My goal for each of my clients is to have them recognize their own strengths and abilities so they may continue or begin to live meaningful lives.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

There are always times when bad situations can overwhelm a person, but the person always has the option to push the struggle to get to a place where they can find happiness. Making an actual effort toward improving life is something that can create happiness in and of itself. And here you are… You did it! You made the first step to your healing journey by taking time out of your day to look for your own therapy. I admire you.

Whether this is your first time wondering into the world of therapy, it's time for an emotional tune-up, or the pain of what happened has grown to be too much, I am truly happy you are reaching out. I deeply believe that it is within safe relationships that we can attain our greatest insights and have the most healing experiences. So if you, or a loved one, is struggling with anxiety, difficult memories, nightmares, ongoing worries, deep sadness, stuck in patterns that no longer serve your goals, or find yourself acting in ways that sabotage your present, then I can help.

Life is sometimes unexpectedly difficult and suffering can be inevitable. However, how you respond to life circumstances can drastically change your ability to enjoy life. I have worked with many people who have believed in lies about themselves after a traumatic incident or because toxic people have told them horrible things about themselves. These lies can be crippling and further result in problems with anxiety, depression, addictions, lack of sleep, school related difficulties, stress, anger issues, parenting difficulties, communication difficulties, relational issues, family problems, job dissatisfaction and much more. I provide different perspectives that encourage personal healing.

It is an honor to get to know a person, their joys in life and their story all the while helping them process and heal from past and present hurts. My goal is to help people fight the lies they tell themselves, build on truth, and integrate their faith with their reality. I also hope to help them build lasting relationships and support systems, embrace their emotions without letting them take over, and learn the beauty of resilience, all as they begin to hope for a future worth looking forward to.

Addiction is not a problem to be fixed, but rather a person. I have worked with many people with various addictions and realize that addressing one problem from one perspective is not enough. I specialize in getting to know a person first and then helping that person heal from past hurts, learn skills for problem-solving, improve communication, build strong relationships, practice ways to manage strong emotions, learn to slow down and change their harmful or intrusive thoughts, draw from their faith for strength, develop strong support systems, and with all this, hope of long-term recovery can become reality.

Therapy usually begins with taking stock of one's current situation in life, and figuring out the best way to move forward. I have been helping adults and children with difficult life situations and transitions for almost 30 years. My intent is to be understanding; to listen and to hear but also provide feedback, in an environment you can count on as confidential and safe. I work with children, adults, and families.

Negative thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming, and at times even become unbearable. Often they are the root cause of the issues that prompt someone to seek outside help. Using a primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy approach, I help people understand what triggers these feelings and together we work on strategies for managing and reducing them. Therapy is tailored to an individual's specific needs to meet immediate goals, as well as to build tools for long-term balance and well-being.

From the unexpected challenges to finding fulfillment when overcoming a trial, every person deserves to be the hero of their own story. From trauma to mood disorders to relational issues, each challenge is not an isolated event, but a story that is connected to our past, present, and future. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is passionate about helping people work through these challenges to come out even stronger, emotionally and mentally. I work with youth, adults, couples, and families to identify how this connection can lead to overcoming challenges and finding healing.
