I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

I work with couples and individuals and support issues including, relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, etc. I have found the most effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

Partnering with others during their journey of healing through anxiety, trauma, substance use, and other issues is one of the fundamental beliefs I hold. Healing is a journey as a person navigates challenges from both within themselves and outside of themselves. Helping people integrate their faith into their healing is one of my specialties.

I am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

I’ve had the privilege of working with many individuals and families over the course of 9 years in a variety of settings including office and school based outpatient, intensive in-home, school based day treatment, and a primary care pediatric office. During that time I saw that everyone is capable of change if they have the right supports and tools. I specifically enjoy supporting children and their families through difficult or challenging times and helping children and adults heal from trauma. Treatment is focused on the individual's and family goals that are set at the beginning of treatment.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Sylva can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Sylva or for a Sylva coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Sylva coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Sylva are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Sylva

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Sylva you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Sylva and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Sylva or family therapy in Sylva.
