I have extensive experience and passion working with individuals that struggle with anxiety, adoption, depression, women's issues , premarital counseling, parent-child issues, and low self-esteem.
Life is too short to settle and I strongly believe everyone has the capacity to live a fulfilling life. We were molded and created to live in relationship with one another as well as enjoy every season of it, be it at mountain tops or through valley lows. However, sometimes it is difficult to notice the bright side, but do not worry - you’re not alone. If you desire to take that step and move towards love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control, or perhaps a deeper connection with your partner, your children and overall relationships with others then you have come to the right place.

Learning why we think, feel, and act the way we do is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. From there, we gain the ability to adjust, grow, connect, and show up in the world as our most authentic selves. I work primarily with addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. My approach to treating addictive problems is self-empowering and open minded. In addition to the listed disorders I treat, I love working with women's issues , relationship issues, phase of life issues, religious trauma, and the LGBTQ+ population.

No matter all the work you have done, you continue to feel anxious or depressed and maybe both, who even knows the difference. Some days you are unable to quiet the inner critic whose voice reminds you of your parents. You realize that many of your relationships seem to be the same, the same patter, different person, all unhealthy. Despite all your hard work, you feel like you are failing at everything you do. And what is worst, you are tired of trying to find a different approach to healing, one that works.

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.

With MINDFULNESS I will help you to: *Observe yourself, others and your environment with awareness and without judgment because acknowledging thoughts, feelings and actions, as well as your surroundings, will widen your worldview: ACCEPTANCE BEFORE POSITIVE CHANGE *Create balance between your emotional and rational brain because knowing how to stay emotionally regulated will help you with decision-making from a pro-active place instead of a reactive one: REASONABLE MIND BEFORE EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS *Focus on one task at the time and on the present because mono-tasking and being in the "here-and-now" will help you connect to your purpose: SPECIFIC GOALS BEFORE SUCCESS

Women's Issues Therapists

How do you encourage a woman to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual may be suffering, and what effects it has on them, should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can women prepare for therapy?

Women can prepare for therapy by being willing to talk about their past experiences and their private thoughts. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. Between sessions, it can be useful to write down notes about their reaction to a given event or how they felt at a particular time.

How long does therapy for women’s issues often last?

As with any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual and the challenges they face. Therapy types like Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Prolonged exposure therapy (PET), and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. In some cases, such as for women with eating disorders, residential treatment may be recommended for an individual who is judged to be at high risk of self-harm. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

How can women overcome stigma around specific challenges in order to seek therapy?

Women dealing with domestic abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders, and any other number of troubles may feel a stigma around seeking help. It’s important to remember that these issues are not uncommon and there is no shame in getting help for them. Therapy is confidential, and women can talk about their experiences without fear of judgment. Seeking therapy can be a courageous and liberating act, and an important step toward healing and recovery.
