Life is too beautiful to not be able to enjoy it to the fullest. I will help you increase self-awareness and gain a better understanding of both and old wounds which may be holding you back from experiencing a happier life. I am here to help you learn to love yourself, to have patience and to look at problems in a different and positive perspective, so that you can find different ways to solve them. I will provide you with valuable tools to help you cope so you can live the full, peaceful and happy life God intended you to have.
Life can be challenging and can push us to our limits leaving us feeling overwhelmed, vulnerable, alone, and/or scared. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I provide a space that is non-judgmental, empathetic, and collaborative where you can be open to explore issues that are causing distress. Through your journey of exploration, I will guide you through the process of identifying/nurturing personal strengths and work towards resolving issues/concerns that are most important to you to restore balance back in your life.
Do you frequently experience deja vu in your relationships? Are you dating the "same" person you divorced five years ago? Do your relationships feel draining and chaotic? Interpersonal stress can cause anxiety, depression, and other painful conditions. "Relationship Rehab" is my unique system that will help you create satisfying and loving relationships. It is through relationship that you will heal the aches in your heart and replace tired old patterns with healthy behaviors. You will gain insight and self awareness on your therapeutic journey. You will integrate new skills for living, loving, and relating. I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.
Client's often first come to see me when encountering struggles with depression, anxiety, and/or relationship problems. I have extensive experience helping children, adolescents, and adults; and am not afraid to get in the arena with you as we work through what is causing pain! It is my goal to come alongside you as we loosen the strongholds that keep you from experiencing seasons of wholehearted joy and peace once again!
I have been working in the field since 2014 and throughout my time I have worked with adults, children/teens, and individuals with neurodivergence. When working with my clients I make sure to tailor therapy to meet their needs including: finding ways to make interacting with their world easier and more manageable, developing coping skills, and working on communication skills. I aim to empower my clients and help them realize that they are amazing and capable. When possible I also try to incorporate the family dynamic into treatment as family is an important factor.
I work primarily with adults who are wanting to manage symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I will be with you on your path to discovery, recovery, and finding the person you would like to become. I approach therapy with a client-centered approach in order to create a safe, comfortable space for you to share and express yourself, and your vulnerabilities. We will explore healthy ways to process your trauma, regulate difficult emotions, and restore broken relationships. I believe the trust built between Client and Therapist is powerful, and necessary in order to help you through your healing journey.
My goal is to help you get what you need out of therapy. The journey of self-discovery can feel daunting and overwhelming, but I strive to make therapy supportive, safe, and comfortable. People see me because they want to find fulfillment, improve their moods, or have better relationships.
It's very challenging to admit that YOU or YOUR significant other have a PORN/SEXUAL addiction. This discomfort stops most people from getting professional help but your courage & determination for a solution brought you HERE. Now, let ME take this weight OFF YOU. My experience in LA's Addiction Centers & current work with 1,500 men in groups & solo sessions constantly indicates PORN as a major catalyst of issues: ED, Anxiety, Depression, Low Motivation, Low Libido, Brain Fog, Social Withdraw & Relational Conflict. It's shocking since Modern PORN has ONLY been around the past 15 yrs so the IMPACT is only NOW being realized.
With 32 years of working with individuals and families, I specialize in helping people make changes/progress with depression, anxiety, marital discord, parenting, and other life challenges. As a therapist, I take a nonjudgemental approach in helping people take control of their lives. Some things to ask yourself: Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, or another life challenge? Does your child/adolescent need assistance in expressing feelings? Does your child/adolescent push the limits? Have you and your spouse grown apart? Becoming stronger as an individual/family and strengthening boundaries and roles are my number one goals.
A lot of healing can happen in the context of a supportive and caring relationship. If you are struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, marriage/relationship problems, parenting/family issues, painful life experiences or unhealthy habits, I consider it a privilege to walk that journey with you for a little while -- talking through feelings and circumstances, and helping you find a path toward change and healing. As a Christian, I believe that our emotional and spiritual sides are intertwined, and I incorporate Biblical principles in all aspects of the counseling.
My role as a therapist is one of the greatest privileges in my life, and I approach my work with a great deal of care and humility. I am here to provide a safe place where we can explore the stressors that hold you back from the life you want to live. We have all experienced painful life events and overwhelming moments that impact the way we perceive ourselves, others, and the world. Often, these experiences shape us in ways that we do not recognize until we are able to pause, reflect, and dissect the patterns that keep us stuck.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.
Hola... It’s time for you to experience authentic peace and joy in your life and relationships. I’m an ASW and I specialize in working with PTSD (military and childhood trauma including sexual abuse and neglect), GAD, social anxiety, and difficult life transitions. I also have experience as an Active Duty Marine with a deployment to Iraq in 2008. I’ve worked with adults and children who’ve experienced different forms of trauma and abuse. I use Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help discover your strengths and functional and/or dysfunctional behavior and thinking patterns
Are you, your child, or teen suffering from Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, ADHD or Autism? Are you feeling overwhelmed by work stress, parenting issues, or other life changes? Are you feeling dissatisfied with how your life is going but can't seem to shift out of being stuck? Are you in conflict with your significant other and long for an improved relationship, or frustrated due to unhealthy relationship choices? Are you having trouble recovering from grief and loss? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone and change is possible!
Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.

As an experienced LCSW specializing in Community Mental Health I have had the opportunity to see the great potential of the amazing strength of the human spirit in promoting resilience and determination when even the greatest adversities are present.

Taking a holistic person in environment and strengths based perspective I strive to connect with my clients and support them to identify their goals and overcome barriers to mental health and goal attainment.

Do you find yourself shut down or suppress your feelings? Do you struggle in relationships due to your trauma? Are you unsure of where you belong? I work with people of all identities to process unresolved feelings due to trauma. I strive to provide you a safe and non-judgmental space, in order for you to develop coping mechanisms for trauma symptoms (anxiety, depression, addiction, etc.) and to explore aspects of yourself. I can help you let go of past HURTS and develop tools to find RELIEF.
My main focus throughout the therapeutic process is to provide a warm, caring environment, which allows everyone to feel safe and at ease. I believe that empathy, acceptance, and true genuineness are essential in creating a trusting therapeutic relationship. My goal is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space, which allows you to feel a sense of relief, especially if you have been feeling alone, and not understood by others.
