I offer a nurturing environment for clients to explore what is preventing them from being happy with how they handle life, parenting , work and relationships.
Are you yearning for a more joyful life and more connected relationships? Perhaps you have patterns that are getting in the way of relationship and joy bc of difficult past experiences.

Parenting feels draining. You’ve spent years as the emotional center of your family. You are the core, the go-to, the sun. Almost all of your time and energy has been spent being of service to others. Now you realize that you want more. More joy, more awe, more transcendence. You want to feel connected to this world and to something bigger. You want more internal peace and more balance in your life.

You're lost in the weeds of to-do's, obligations, & responsibilities; your mind a cacophony of distractions clamoring for your attention. At some point, this life you built got so busy that you're no longer enjoying it. Instead, you're overwhelmed by the anxiety of it all; sure that something will go horribly wrong. You tell yourself that these worries aren't real, just scary stories you contemplate- your own "monster under the bed". So you push them to the back of your mind and slap a smile on your face, forging on. Unfortunately, until we open the door to face the boogeyman, that gnawing feeling of dread won't ever really go away.

Greetings! In searching for a therapist you seek someone who is capable of listening to you and truly hearing. It is essential that your therapist is able to understand your 'starting point' in order to help you pursue your personal and relationship objectives. It is my honor to assist you. In my profession it is rare to find a therapist who has remained in face-to-face counseling for the duration of his/her career. With gratitude I can say God has blessed me as a counselor bringing help to many hurting and dismayed individuals, couples and families.

Any individual that is suffering from addiction, a lack of motivation to conquer their goals, or looking to explore a deeper practice of mindfulness in their day to day life can benefit from the ongoing support that counseling can provide. Chronic relapsing, low self esteem, and barriers created through active addiction will prevent us from recovery. Maybe you have a family member that is suffering or you would like to receive more information on substance use disorder, I can help educate and provide coping strategies to give you more peace of mind as you support your loved one.

Being a child or teen right now is hard, with a lot of pressure and emotions dealing with school, friendships, social media, family, and their future. Supporting and helping our children navigate all of these factors, along with the new things that seem to pop up every day is stressful. My approach is that everyone can use therapy to learn skills to manage our emotions. My aim is to create a safe place for children to open up and learn tools to better manage their emotions and behaviors, and improve self-esteem. I strive to always provide a warm space, where you and your child feel safe to be vulnerable and work towards your goals.

I am currently accepting adult clients for Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy. Are you struggling to find center in a world that is constantly moving out from under your feet? It is possible to find stability in chaos. Are you straining to find pleasure in your daily experience? Do you find yourself pushing away the people you love most while you yearn for the soft heart of connection? It can be terrifying to share your pain with another. While life may feel overwhelming and impossible despite your best efforts, it doesn’t have to be this way forever. You can live with greater inner stability, more joy, and nourishing relationships.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I try to help clients stay focused on the here and now, rather than getting stuck in the "whys" or the "what ifs." No matter what you're going through I want you to feel supported and empowered.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
