Major and sudden life events can be disruptive to your life depending on what they are. They can also create worry, stress, confusion, sadness, anger, emotional pain, and frustration. Do you ever feel that way? Is it because of Child Protective Services, problems with your spouse or partner, or feeling pessimistic about life itself? With 18 years of experience in mental health, crisis management, adolescent behaviors, marital conflict, domestic violence and child welfare my primary focus is to help you heal and find solutions. If you need professional help, I look forward to working with you in a safe and judgment free manner.

I understand heartache and betrayal in relationships. You need to feel alive and secure again. Trauma affects everything from your sense of sexuality to spirituality, even your connection to others.

I will listen supportively, and you will find wisdom to build an enduring sense of purpose maybe for the first time. Let's do this together!
Life is inherently challenging & we all find ourselves struggling at times. Emotional pain is part of our experience as human beings, it does not define us. In my practice I start by meeting a client where he or she is. I can help clients identify what emotions, habits, and beliefs are getting in the way of reaching personal goals, assist with developing skills, increase motivation and identify strengths to lead a more satisfying life. I enjoy working with clients to discover what needs to change and the best path to get there. I welcome whatever you bring and offer an open compassionate space to explore, heal and grow.

You’re reading my profile for a reason. You’re tired of doing this alone. You deserve compassionate help. I blend my passion for mental health and wellness with expertise in communication theory and practice. I am passionate about youth and emerging adults ages 15-25. What makes my approach and perspective unique is the empathy that can only come from lived experience.

One of my strengths is my ability to work well with clients from various backgrounds.
Are you feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and burned out! Are you burning the candle at both ends! Are you thinking, is this really all there is to life? Do you find yourself saying, I will do (_____), when (______) happens! Are you feeling as if something needs to change…but what? If you are reading this, then you are probably craving more intimate connections, a fulfilling career, more meaning and joy. The fact that you are searching the therapist directory shows you are ready to act and transform your life!
I believe counseling offers healing, growth and clarification for individuals as they courageously decide to work with me in a safe, trusting warm and confidential environment. My therapeutic approach is mainly cognitive and behavioral (CBT) and Client/Centered Therapy but use other therapeutic approaches as needed. I strive to meet you where you are at, then we decide the style that fits your needs, as we are going to be working together to help you meet your goals. I believe in people’s inner strengths and capacity to succeed and grow even during difficult times.
I understand how difficult it is to feel anxious, sad, or depressed, and how those feelings can impact your view of yourself and the relationships in your life. You do not have to face these challenges alone. I will help you find a pathway to wholeness so you can discover your true self, allowing you to live more authentically and in harmony with all of life. When you change your state of mind, you change your state of being. I offer a holistic approach which focuses on mind, body, nutrition & soul growth. You will gain insight into why you feel the way you do and learn present centered techniques to change your state of mind.
My goal is to help you be the best you possible. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will begin to deal with long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I work with a variety of addiction issues including gambling addiction, eating disorders and addictive behaviors, and sex addiction. Also I periodically run groups for compulsive eating issues and sex/porn addictions.

Do you find yourself weighed down with everyday decisions? Are you emotionally exhausted from worrying about relationships, work, and the world around you? Do you experience physical symptoms of anxiety that limit your ability to enjoy social experiences, pursue hobbies, a dream job, or dating? Living with patterns of anxiety can drain us of our freedoms by limiting our perceptions of ourselves and our abilities. The challenges we face in life can feel overwhelming, leading us to lose trust in ourselves and others. If you are lacking energy, feeling hopeless, and engaging in negative thinking patterns, don't give up!
