Your day begins and ends with a pounding headache. As if that wasn't enough, you struggle with digestion issues, too. The everyday pain wears on you. You're always tired. You've been to the doctor...but still no answers. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, & suddenly being angry for no obvious reason...you don't know how much longer you can go on like this. What if the reason you're feeling this way is unresolved trauma or PTSD?

“Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step” – Mariska Hargitay. Life can sometimes be difficult to manage. Taking that courageous step and asking for help allows us to gain a better understanding of how to manage our life's stresses, our relationships with others, and improve our quality of life. I work with individuals who struggle with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and trauma and often experience anger/aggression, impulsivity, low self-esteem, communication struggles, and family/social relational conflicts.

Life can be messy. Things don't always go the way we plan. When that happens, we can feel stuck. Stuck in anger, sadness, and frustration which can lead to symptoms of anxiety, depression and feelings of helplessness It is my belief that people have the ability and strength to cope with life's unexpected turns and disappointments. Sometimes, we just need some extra support and encouragement to understand and process our complex feelings and realize the potential and resiliency that lies within.

The human experience is made up of a series of steps and changes. Each change, whether it is perceived in the moment as positive or negative, propels us into uncharted territory, and sometimes, we all need a little help with the navigation. My goal is to assist individuals, children, parents, and couples as they work through new challenges, overcome patterns of negative thoughts and behaviors, and seek personal strength and confidence moving forward.

At the root of all psychological and emotional distress, is the absence of/or lack of love, acceptance and belonging. When this need is not met, we consciously and subconsciously find other ways to fill the void, often through self-destructive behaviors and emotional self-loathing. The vast majority of people do not know how to love themselves or find value in who they are, especially when coming from backgrounds of abuse, addiction or abandonment. When a person understands their value, their self-worth, their reason for being, the psychological and emotional distress dissipates, and behaviors change.
