Asking for help for yourself or a loved one can be difficult. Sharing your life experiences, thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger is even more difficult. That is why I believe that it is important to build a strong foundation of trust and help you feel comfortable and safe enough to share your story and life experiences with me. Finding a good fit with a therapist is very important to reach your goals and is key to growth and bringing forth your inner strength.
We founded Clay Collaborative because therapy sometimes gets a bad rap, and we want to help change that. Our mission is to provide therapy to children, teens, adults, and families that is individualized, non-judgmental, and even fun! You won’t find a “one-size fits all” approach here.
I serve clients who are in distress and need someone to be with them on their journey, whether they are ready to change or simply considering it. Ideally, clients want to find solutions to their issues that fit their lives and values, and that are sustainable in their given circumstances. My goal is to help clients find these solutions by drawing on their own inner strengths.
You're noticing repeating, limiting patterns in yourself and in your relationships but feel helpless to change them. Sometimes all of the world's noise, demands and judgments, both inside and out, make it hard to feel grounded and hear your own inner wisdom. You'll learn to recognize old self-limiting beliefs and reactive emotions and transcend them. Together we will release wounds that keep you repeating old patterns and free you up to move forward towards what is truly fulfilling for you.
You’re juggling so many things at once that you’ve lost all perspective. It takes everything you’ve got to make sure your loved ones are happy, and your clients are taken care of, but the smile you’ve been holding up is starting to slip. You feel like a fraud. Everyone around you seems to know what they’re doing while you struggle to get through the week. Your job requires a lot of compassion, and there’s nothing left for you at the end of the day. You love helping others professionally, but the burnout is becoming resent. The guilt of even having these feelings is unbearable. You need a break or an outlet before you explode!

It is not easy to ask for help. But if you have come this far you are doing the right thing.

Do you feel like all the other new parents seem to have it all together? Do you get easily irritated, anxious, and overwhelmed at the simplest things? Do you feel guilty because you have such a beautiful and good baby, but still feel like crap? Do you find yourself asking WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? Having a baby changes everything! Even when you have longed for a baby the fatigue and exhaustion have the better of you. Your relationship has changed with your partner and not always for the better.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, LPCC, NCC, CCMHC
Having difficulties in your life? Experiencing emotional distress? Having relationship, family or work difficulties? Feeling anxious and overwhelmed with the demands from your spouse, children and boss? Finding you and your spouse get stuck in negative communication patterns? Are you and your family feel difficulty facing emotional, spiritual, social and physical changes or limitations? Cancer knocks at your door. You feel sacred, overwhelmed and don't know what will happen to you. As an experienced Marriage & Family Therapist, I will work with you to undergo the challenges affecting your body, mind, family, career and every aspect of your life.
I believe anyone can benefit from therapy. Seeing a therapist means you were willing to ask for help in dealing with the overwhelming circumstances that sometimes come your way. We all face times of anxiety and depression, and a little professional guidance can help us not just survive these times, but can result in happier, healthier people for facing the trials. I particularly believe that giving this healing space to children is beneficial; allowing their experiences and emotions to be treated respectfully and resolved empathically can let them move forward and make better choices throughout the rest of their lives.
A trusting and genuine relationship with your therapist is the most important part of the therapeutic process. This is why, despite the theoretic perspective, I strive to accomplish an authentic relationship with each and every person, family or couple that comes to see me. Whether your goals are to recover from trauma, evolve or repair your relationships, or to build a happier sense of a self, it all starts with a trusting well defined attachment to your therapist. Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
I have many years' experience in and a passion for treating infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children and adolescents and their families dealing with a variety of issues including the following: adjustment difficulties, trauma, divorce, attachment difficulties, social problems, depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, and developmental delays.

I also provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents and their families.
"Tiowishonia" is a word from the Lakota language. It means soundness of one's mind, heart and spirit. I find it a privilege to work with individuals, couples, and families to achieve this within themselves. Everyone is unique and posses a special gift. By providing a safe, nonjudgmental environment we explore one's life issues in order to resolve the barriers that prevent one from fully embracing their gift and the contribution they have to offer to themselves, their families, and communities. I utilize EMDR (certified) and use Emotional Freedom Technique as methods of treatment. I look forward to meeting you
