Often in the pursuit of happiness, we are so focused on a destination that there is little joy in our journey. We work so hard to attain career, relationship, degree or professional aspirations that the outcome is not worth the personal sacrifice. The loss of excitement in our dreams can be diminishing and frustrating, taking the magic and excitement out of life. Therapy can help demystify how you’ve arrived at this particular place in life, how you’ve lost your passion or questioned your values. Therapy can support you in regaining the magic of your life and bringing your dreams into the present.

My successful clients are active psychotherapy participants who are dedicated and motivated for change. Introspective, he/she thinks about therapy outside of the office and attempts to use the knowledge and insight gained to improve relationships, goals, and life satisfaction. At times, psychotherapy requires difficult work from both the therapist and client, and the outcome is predicated by the mutual effort vested in the therapeutic process.

Licensed Professional Counselor, RN, BSN, LPC, MBA
I work with men and women facing both the 'big' and the seemingly common issues of life. 'Big' life changes like a cancer diagnosis or a partner experiencing dementia; 'Life' issues like relationships, grief/loss, anxiety, anger, depression, persistent feelings of sadness, job difficulties, retirement challenges and more. Those who work with me soon come to appreciate the value of being heard; of being seen and accepted-despite the sharp edges that may appear as we try to protect ourselves from the pain the world sometimes presents us.
I help couples and individuals create deeper meaning and connection in their lives. I will help you integrate tools to enhance self-awareness, so you can take action and show up in your life consistently. Together, we can navigate the feelings and emotions that have been weighing you down, and release past experiences that have accumulated over time. We will rewrite old thought patterns, and strengthen self-awareness through mindfulness. I will provide practices that you can incorporate throughout your life - helping you feel more grounded, connected, and physically at ease. Therapy is a healthy place to create the life you want.
Could you use some time that is set apart just for you? Too often life asks you to take a back seat, to forget all the wounds and suffering that lie hidden and ignored in the back of your mind. Together we will create a space separate from your life where you can safely explore your fear, sorrow, anger and aspiration. The space that we create will generate personal clarity, confidence and support in your daily life. We accomplish this as a team by using concrete, holistic, and analytical tools to build a solid foundation of personal health.
Life is constantly changing and evolving. Sometimes we need a little support to take care of ourselves, reach our goals or to make strong, lasting relationships with the people we love. No one is an island. People need people to feel connected and lead fulfilling lives. Let me help you do the same. Here at Serenity Counseling Services, we believe in supporting our clients through fostering authentic connection, establishing direction with values and not merely goals, and restoring meaning and purpose to the lives of clients and their families.
Let me start by saying this: I am not a "how did that make you feel" therapist. No, I'm more likely to say, "You were right, and you are a good person." You see, after having been in the field of psychology for over 25 years, I'm convinced that 1) you are usually doing the best you can and 2) the games and roles that many therapists take on won't benefit you and may take far longer than you want to wait for help. There are some therapists whose style may actually keep you dependent on them. Then there are those who don't really listen to you and will just tell you what to do. Or how about those who tell you to "just do it".
**PLEASE NOTE MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL** Whether your traumatic experiences occurred in childhood, adulthood or periodically over the lifespan, I am here to help. Please know that everyone’s experience with trauma is different and so is the healing process. Trauma can be both big and small and we may not even identify our experiences as trauma. However, trauma can happen at any time in ones life and the impacts can slowly take over your ability to see the world in a clear and comprehensive way. I am passionate about providing a safe and judgement-free space to help you process your experiences so that you can take back control.
