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.

Some family members feel tension in the room often, there is non-productive talking (or yelling) and too few words are exchanged daily for any positive change to occur. Neutral, collaborative, and effective mediation can help.

Feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Tearing up or having crying spells? Family, relationships or work becoming more challenging? Or maybe, past situations are now causing feelings of sadness, anger, or shame because you can't forget the memory though you try. These are things that many people deal with on daily basis, however you don't have to do it alone. Therapy is an opportunity to learn ways of coping with things that can be emotionally draining. Counseling is not only what I do, but what I love! You will have the opportunity to share your thoughts in an environment free from judgment or criticism.
