Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. -Virginia Satir No two people are alike, therefore no two treatment plans are alike. Each individual should have a treatment plan created specifically to meet his/her needs. Whether you are struggling with Depression, Anxiety, self-esteem, parenting, or are having occupational or educational stressors, I can help! I will work with you to help you identify triggers to negative thoughts and feelings, and find helpful techniques you could use to manage and minimize them.

I believe all of us must face different challenges in life. My role as a therapist is to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can express your true feelings and learn more about yourself. Having a safe place to explore and express your confusion or despair can be the first step to healing and growth. I can assist you in resolving your past pain in an effort to promote insight and healing. In an environment of warmth and genuineness, I will affirm your strengths and challenge you to use them.

Counseling offers an opportunity to explore areas of life that can bring you more personal satisfaction and confidence. I can help you sort through personal difficulties as well as the parts of your life that are going well. Recognizing the strengths you already possess is an important part of the process. Your strengths are nurtured to become the tools for change, as my aim is to add clarity to your life, improve levels of functioning, and ultimately benefit you and those around you. I seek to encourage the exploration of change and an improved quality of life.

I help people learn to become the hero of their own story. Each new transition you face in life is an opportunity to expand and refine your identity... but there are also pitfalls. We get hurt, we lose our way, we get caught up in shame and self-doubt. I work with a lot of grief, loss, and confusion around life changes. I've got a lot of experience with folks who have been adopted or in foster care — and people who find themselves feeling alone after a split from their family, their culture, or their religious faith. I'm passionate about helping people find their way into the next, better chapter of life.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

My passion is providing therapy to individuals and families to help them have greater joy in their life and relationships and to overcome painful feelings and life experiences. Have you ever felt a negative emotion for long periods of time? Anger, sadness, worry, fear, guilt, or shame? Have these feelings been combined with negative thoughts that play over and over in your mind, no matter how hard you try not to think about them? Did these thoughts and feelings begin after a life event or experience. Or, did they seem to come out of nowhere? Either way, if you are looking for support and relief I am here to help.

Are you a person who struggles with balancing work, family, and society's demands? Do you have issues feeling connected to yourself, others, or your children? Do you struggle with anxiety that affects your daily life, relationships, or ability to function? You deserve to feel happier. Now more than ever, people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and uncertain about how they're supposed to manage their lives and feel connected. Putting your needs on the back-burner and not taking care of yourself can lead to long-term issues for your mind and body. You shouldn’t have to try so hard to feel better.

Does it feel like it's you against the world? I work with teens and adults who are having a tough time, acting out feelings in ways that don't get good results and not sure what else to do. You may not be satisfied with your relationships - missing a lot of red flags, or lashing out at people you wish you could feel closer to. Maybe it just doesn't feel like you belong anywhere. First let's find ways for the therapy hour to feel like one place where things can start to work better... feel safer, better understood, gaining skills to manage your emotions, learning how you come off to others and how to get better results.

I’ll help you develop a better relationship with your body, and find a greater sense of identity and stability in life. Whether you’re struggling with an eating disorder, chronic pain, poor self-image, or difficulty accessing and dealing with your emotions - I’ll help you get more in touch with yourself and find a style of living that feels more comfortable to you. My approach is trauma-informed, so we'll pay careful attention to the ways that difficult past experiences may have closed off some options for how to think, feel, and move.
