Perhaps you are feeling anxious, sad, or “stuck.” You may be struggling with a transition, such as becoming a new parent, starting a new job, coping with a loss, or adapting to life after a difficult medical diagnosis. Or, perhaps you find yourself overwhelmed by fear and negative feelings for no apparent reason at all. If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.

Life can be unpredictable, beautiful, unmanageable, fulfilling, disappointing, and so much more. Therapy is an opportunity for us to dive deeper into these complex experiences, reoccurring patterns and difficult obstacles that are blocking us from connecting with ourselves, others, and a higher quality of life. I thoroughly enjoy my work and am passionate about providing space with gentle guidance for you to explore what matters most. Outside of the therapy room, I love finding new trails with my pup, Clio. I have a passion for traveling and learning from the places I visit. I thrive off of good coffee and frequent the belly laughs!

Do you have “sticky” self-defeating thoughts that won’t leave you alone? Do you “know” you’re good enough but don’t “feel” it? Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us. I truly believe that we all have the power to grow and heal within us; sometimes we just need a little guidance and specialized tools to get started. I can help you gain strength, motivation, resiliency, and a deeper compassion for yourself and your journey.

I have extensive training and experience with Play Therapy and Family Therapy. This expertise has allowed me to be an integral part of the healing that occurs when both the family and child are given the opportunity to work together on problems in a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering environment.

I believe that balance is the key to life. When one area of your life or family is out of balance, it impacts other areas of your life and family. Therapy can help restore the balance in your life. Therapy provides an avenue for change and personal growth.

MEET DR. BROWNING -- "Wtih all our patients, we equip and empower them with the tools they need to get from overwhelmed to overcomer, using practical Biblical wisdom that leads to real change and victory in their personal struggles, and in their most important love relationships. Our focus always aims at finding lasting solutions.We do this in what we call Mindset-Reset Therapy (MRT)™. Throughout my career as a therapist I've observed that many forms of counseling produce changes that don't last over time. Why? Because the focus is on problems instead of finding simple choices and solutions for major and dramatic breakthroughs.

A few years ago I read a joke: "Fish don't know they're in the water". The scenario is that Fish Number One asks Fish Number Two, "How's the water?" Fish Number Two responds, "What the hell is water?". The fish who is "in" the situation (hence the water) does not even realize its surrounding. Second what surrounds you is only normal because it's what you know. I got another one that I recently came across: "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." This references to dream analysis but it basically mean that our preconceptions can dramatically alter the way we perceive the world. (Quote is by writer Anais Nin).

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
