If you are here, I'm going to make a few assumptions: 1. You are looking for answers...and want someone who knows how to help. 2. You are willing to "do whatever it takes" to save your relationship. 3. You're thinking: Something is missing... I'm worried that I have "fallen" out of love. The kids are a reason to stay married but I need more than that... I'm beginning to think we are behaving more like roommates than lovers. I don't know if I will ever be able to trust them again...

My work is based on the belief that by working together, we can improve the quality of your life. Many of my clients are in stressful life situations that have caused them to turn to such destructive behaviors as misuse of alcohol and drugs, over-eating, or over-working. Many haven't learned how to communicate in a way that promotes satisfying relationships. Within a safe, non-judgmental environment where you are truly listened to, we'll work together to help you understand how some of your behaviors and thoughts may not be serving you well.

Sometimes it feels like you’re so alone even when surrounded by friends and family. Sometimes it feels like no one understands what you’re going through. Sometimes it’s difficult to get out of bed and even the smallest of tasks seem overwhelming. Sometimes you feel like you want to do something but can’t get the energy to get up and act. Life can be challenging at times, and you no longer have to go through these emotions alone. I’m here to help you find meaning, make sense of what's going on, and work towards your goals. Let me help you open the metaphorical door and break free from the self-criticizing tape that's on replay.

I enjoy working with every individual of all ages, but I absolutely love working with children and teens. I tailor my approach based on what the client needs. I use play or art therapy as play is the language of the children. It helps them to express their internal world when they have no words for it. I have completed the core competencies for Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) under International Model. PCIT is an evidence-based intervention that promotes positive parent-child relationships while reducing disruptive behaviors at home. I am also a certified Positive Discipline Parenting Educator.

Some research states that the average couple will wait up to 6 years AFTER noticing something is wrong in their marriage before seeking help. So congratulations if you are seeking help before that! You've already made the first big step towards improving your marriage just by looking for a counselor. Now if you are experiencing a bit of choice paralysis that's normal. Its a big choice! My first goal in establishing a good counseling relationship is making sure it's a good fit for both of us. So know that if you call you're not stuck!

My passion is to help families, marriages and individuals know personal and relational healing. I believe that we all have unique life experiences that shape who we are and how we connect with others. Sometimes these experiences do not foster compassion or the ability to connect with those you love in the way in which you desire. I understand this; it is part of my story, too! I hope to join you in the process of healing to not go it alone.

I like working with individuals, couples, or families who are motivated to examine patterns in their thinking or behavior for positive change. I enjoy working in a collaborative manner where there is an active exchange and where my client is open to feeling some discomfort for change - no pain/no gain. I believe that we are all capable of change through insight and that our upbringing can result in both good and bad habits that are flexible as long as we are conscious. I enjoy bringing in spirituality/meaning of life discussions to further my clients self awareness and growth.

I believe that we constantly transition from one stage in life to another, often needing assistance: child to teenager; single to married; individual to parent. I love to work with highly motivated clients who long to achieve their goals. Whether you were referred, followed the suggestion of friends, or simply wanted to explore options around therapy, I am glad you're giving me the opportunity to simplify this process for you. In a world of high professional and personal demands at times we need support to properly thrive. In Law Enforcement or Active Military? I have worked extensively w/ both.
