I believe that every individual is a whole and healthy being. Trauma that occurs in childhood or later in life creates a block that makes one feel less than whole and far from healthy. Because of this, anxiety, depression, addictions to substances, food, and other destructive behaviors become a way of coping. My goal is to help my clients restore the feeling of wholeness and well-being by providing a safe, supportive and nurturing environment in which they can work through difficult issues and restore their true selves. I see it everyday...

As a psychologist with over 20 years of experience, I seek to provide a nonjudgmental and nurturing environment in which you can explore your current struggles. I believe that the therapist client relationship is critical to help you effect the positive change you are looking for. Together we can explore the patterns in your life that are preventing you from living the life you want and we can work to set realistic goals. Although I am trained using a psychodynamic approach, I also utilize DBT and mindfulness to help clients cope with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other mental health concerns.

One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, our approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". we strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. We specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues.

I specialize in mind-body healing for adult individuals and couples, particularly with survivors of childhood trauma. Do you have overwhelming feelings or numbness? Do you have anxiety, depression, or PTSD? Are you struggling with coping mechanisms that cause you pain? Is your relationship in crisis? Many do not know childhood hurts can live on for a lifetime somatically in the nervous system and emotions. The natural ability to find peace inside and connection with others simply becomes less flexible, but all of this can shift. We work with what happens in the present to see real change - as an individual or couple.

You've probably found this page because you feel "stuck" in life. Maybe you're a parent who is challenged by their child's unique behavioral, emotional or academic needs and want help navigating them. Perhaps you're entering a life transition, such as entering or exiting a romantic relationship, going to college, or getting a new job and want emotional support and validation. My goal is to help individuals, families and couples find insight into their challenges, cope through distressful situations, and, in effect, become their own therapist.

Is anxiety preventing you from realizing what you want to do—or are capable of doing—with your life? Are you hesitant to go after what truly makes you happy because you underestimate your gifts or abilities? Perhaps speaking up in a way that maintains your own dignity and that of others is what you are wanting. Still others work with me because they experience a sense of validation and empowerment with the things they have experienced — whether it be mystical, hard to explain spiritual events or stressful/traumatic religious experiences.

Journeys Counseling provides professional psychotherapy, vibrant living coaching, and spiritual direction to the community. Our work is interdenominational, serving clients from many different backgrounds, including those who have little or no religious affiliation. As a Christian organization we believe counseling should address the whole person and be respectful of people’s faith. Individual’s beliefs are both an important part of their lives and a valuable resource when experiencing distress. Counseling should assist in developing those resources further. Often, people lack support systems that help deal with personal problems.

Your inner self-critic takes up too much space in your head and you’re struggling with flipping the script. People keep saying you’re “too sensitive,” as if it’s a bad thing. You’re worried you're either too much or not enough – and sometimes you’re both at the same time! There's a part of you that knows you deserve more, but there always seems to be something holding you back. Old memories creep in and keep you trapped in gripping control of the future. Trying to figure this out on your own has you running in circles. You’re ready to release these limitations and claim your freedom… but you don’t know where to begin.

Wanting to feel better but not knowing how to make that happen is something we all struggle with at one time or another. Sometimes the hardest thing we can do is admit we need some outside help. It can also be the bravest thing we can do.
