In my work as a classroom teacher, high school soccer coach, guidance counselor, marriage and family therapist, husband and parent , I've gained valuable experiences about relationships of all sorts, and I rely on the learning from these roles to support my clients in the changes they are hoping to make in their lives.
I want to work closely with my clients to develop a collaborative and respectful relationship. Clients who are facing difficulties in their lives, and who feel that they need to make changes in their relationships with others and with themselves, will find in their work with me a compassionate, supportive, non-judgmental and empathic listener.

When you begin to recognize that your enjoyment of your child seems to be decreasing while feelings of being stuck, stressed, or overwhelmed are increasing, early childhood mental health services can be an effective tool to get things back on track. Healthy parent /child relationships reflect secure attachment, responsive attunement, and mutual enjoyment. But many things can interrupt that process, even typical things like the birth of a sibling or starting school. These experiences can contribute to challenging behaviors in children that are difficult to handle. Therapy can help to restore connection and understanding.

Are you overwhelmed? Stressed? Are you struggling with thoughts that you find disturbing? Are you in need of hope, healing, and support? If so, I can help. I work with those who tend to be the 'black sheep', who are looking to find themselves. My clients are adults experiencing work related stress, life stress, life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, navigating parenting and relationship issues. I utilize a trauma informed approach in my work, as trauma has a tremendous impact on our life, whether vicariously or first-hand. I work with new parents (moms and dads) including foster parents/caregivers and adoptive parents.

Your family does not come with an instruction manual. Despite the abundance of parenting resources available, none of them are tailored to your exact family, your dynamics, your environment. What do you do when you feel stuck repeating frustrating behavioral cycles, worrying about potentially toxic parenting habits, and feeling overwhelmed at everything that doesn’t seem to be working? This is when you seek the help of a professional. You and your family deserve peace and harmony; you deserve the transformation that results from shifting from reactive to proactive parenting ; and you deserve to become a connected family.

My other areas of speciality include infertility, perinatal, parenting issues and church trauma.
Moms are the backbone of our society and yet we feel exhausted and burnt out by the demands that are put on us. My goal is to nurture those that are burnt out by this crazy life so they can experience true rest, grace, and are empowered to love themselves and others well. Through our work together, you will learn more about yourself and ways to care for yourself and your little ones.

For the past 10 years, I have been passionate about working with individuals, toddlers, children, youth, and families overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, behavior issues, family conflict, and parent -child relational issues.
In childhood, our outside shapes the inside, and in adulthood the inside shapes the outside. -Chip Judd I believe that who we are today is shaped by the experiences and relationships we had growing up. Through relationships we can become aware of our own strengths as well as our brokenness from past hurts, hiccups, and hang ups and discover that a part of us yearns to be heard, revealed, and healed.

Your healing matters. Healing can often look like having stronger boundaries, less avoidance, improved work performance, and more satisfaction in relationships. Unresolved trauma can make your relationships, parenting , work performance, bodily functioning, and overall day-to-day routine feel unbearable. I provide therapy short-term or long-term to help you cope with what is lingering e.g. stress, anxiety, depression, or triggers to previous trauma. I adapt my therapy style depending on the person and context because each responds differently to psychotherapy. Providing a safe space is always my first priority.

I work with issues such as childhood trauma, codependency, parenting , boundary issues, grief and loss, and couples and family issues.
By considering a therapist, you are taking a step towards improving your life, examining what needs to be changed and building upon what is already working. Life can get better and you have the power to change it. During difficult times, it is important to either develop healthy support systems or utilize the ones that we already have. Seeking therapy is one piece of a healthy support system. You are acknowledging that some aspects of your life may not be going well and need to be changed. Therapy can help you to put life in perspective.

Parenting Therapists
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
