Whether you're in or starting college or graduate school, starting a new career, or simply navigating your professional identity, you may be thinking, "Do I even belong here? Am I not good enough?" Life transitions coupled with imposter syndrome may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of imposter syndrome may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression). Together, we will understand the negative behaviors developed over time, overcome the past, and identify solutions to live life authentically.

If you are here, something is probably not-quite-right. Maybe you have realized that you are ready to do a big chunk of healing work that has been in the back of your mind and nervous system for a while. Maybe you are noticing that you are, in some ways, not being totally honest with yourself, or with your partner(s), or with your family. Maybe you have found that there are parts of you that you've never taken the time to get to know that are asking — loudly or quietly— for attention. Or maybe you just know that you need to carve out a time for yourself every week where you don't have to take care of anyone but yourself.

Sometimes it's difficult to share what hurts inside. Maybe you've tried different tools, yet things have not changed. That hurting may be preventing you from making decisions, connecting with others, or feeling like yourself ... I'd love to help you see through unresolved conflicts that are keeping you down. My approach is gentle, open, and curious. In our sessions, we'll build safety and we'll explore what hurts at your own pace.

I help people learn to manage and understand their unwanted thoughts and difficult feelings while healing past wounds that often times keep them stuck in patterns of anxiety, depression, or self-sabotaging behaviors. Most treatment approaches focus on treating the “symptoms” and sometimes miss deeper patterns that cause these unhelpful thoughts or behaviors to occur. Together, we will gently examine the root cause of these patterns, let go of beliefs that no longer serve you, and learn how to regulate difficult emotions to empower you to meet your own needs and build healthy relationships with yourself and others.

Making this call, or looking for a therapist in general can be a scary thing. Some people have never been to counseling and don't know what to expect. Others have had negative experiences with people they've confided in the past that make them hesitant to put themselves out there again. I am here to make it as easy for you as possible. I will walk you through the process, and answer any questions along the way. I know that trust is earned, and our relationship should be one of high trust, and I'm ready to earn yours. I believe every person is different and deserves individualized counseling based on their own personal needs.

Whether you are feeling depleted from nonstop worrying, uneasy during a life transition, or burnt out from caregiving for a loved one, please know that support awaits you. Do you feel like you have to "be" a certain way around others to be accepted? Maybe you have found yourself in a caretaking role in relationships since childhood, and now, as an adult, you might feel exhausted and maybe even stuck. What would it look like if you began to embody your true self openly?

You are a busy, driven professional. And life has thrown you a curveball of anxiety, depression, burnout, funkiness in your relationship, or a kind of listless directionlessness. You may be brand new to seeing a therapist or a therapy regular. You are married or in a relationship where you are pissed, bored, or need to brush up on communication skills. You want someone who works towards YOUR goals, who gets cross-cultural couple dynamics, or even gender and power dynamics.

Sometimes personal or interpersonal issues are too difficult to resolve on our own without faith and professional assistance. I earned a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology and a Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology to help people to resolve their issues and heal. Utilizing Faith-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR I help couples reconcile and heal from infidelity, and individuals heal from trauma, anxiety, or self-esteem issues. If you’re looking for a therapist who PRAYS WITH YOU as she walks with you in your JOURNEY of HEALING, CHANGE and GROWTH, then give me a call. Our services are on a sliding fee scale.

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
