Come as you are. I have many years of experience working with people and have seen people travel from brokenness to restoration. This isn't the end of your story. It takes an incredible amount of courage to face things in life but you don't have to be alone. I know that it can be scary to walk into a therapy room and share things that require great vulnerability. Lack of self-love. Infertility. Pregnancy Loss. Postpartum Depression. Guilt/Shame. Life Transitions. Identity. Marriage and Family Issues. Whatever you're facing, I would love to help you find healing.

I have seen people struggle for years with depression and/or anxiety caused by negative thoughts we have about ourselves from things we have been through in life, some things big and bad, others unintentional or seemingly benign. While we all experience challenges in life, you don't deserve to suffer and I can/want to help you find that relief. Medication helps, but is not the answer to long term recovery. Regular talk therapy is helpful, but also not the answer to long term recovery. EMDR therapy has been the most hopeful service for long term recovery I have found and the benefits can be physiologically understood.

I believe all people generally have the resources to help themselves, yet sometimes simply need a safe, trustworthy professional to work through issues, identify goals, make healthy decisions and take steps necessary to live life more fully. I use an integrative and holistic approach that draws largely from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solutions-focused and cognitive behavioral theories. I recognize and respect the fact that individuals have widely varying perspectives and needs. Lastly, I’m flexible with how we meet and offer face-to-face, phone or video sessions. Whatever works best for you!

So, let's not call it "needing" therapy. What if we just say, we're feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, conflicted, or isolated? If you're feeling any of those things, I can help. I often start treatment the 1st or 2nd session. After 6-12 sessions clients usually feel significantly better. I'd be happy to meet with you over the phone confidentially, have a brief discussion (at no charge), and see if it sounds like we would be the right client-therapist fit.

Are you lost? Uncertain of how to move through the struggles of each day? Maybe you're battling through arguments with your partner or you're struggling with anxiety about your relationships and you're just exhausted. Daily, we move through our lives without pausing to ask ourselves: who am I, how am I feeling, what do I need, what's my story, and how do I choose to respond to this world? Therapy has the capacity to be a safe, inviting space to move through your stories of wounding to find your empowered self with the guidance of a trained mental health professional.

As a genetically-determined brain disorder it is difficult to make progress working on OCD alone or without a consistent strategy. Having OCD myself I will be able to quickly understand the way your OCD works and develop a specially tailored plan to get your brain working better.

My therapy style involves meeting the clients where they are at psychologically. It is important to help the client identify what their struggles entail, and together we discover ways to reach their goals. The key is the client's perceptions and thoughts about their life. This perception influences their behavior. Together we can explore their feelings and develop workable strategies to clarify their issues. I rely on the client's strengths and insights to produce necessary support and build a healthy life on their terms. Clients gain an improved sense of their identity and a better process to attain their goals.

As a psychotherapist I view my role as a consultant, not unlike other professional consultants. Utilizing clients' inherent life skills and developing new strategies, I assist them in finding ways to work through barriers to growth. Often the solutions are not complicated, and often clients "know" what is needed to turn things around. I see my job as a listener, teacher and an encourager, because to make a change, even for the better, takes courage.

For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. When there is loss or trauma in a child's life they can often have difficult or challenging relationships with others. Children who are dealing with great pain are often operating in a mode of survival which can make it very hard to allow people to get close. Family Therapy helps them learn how to build stronger and closer connections in spite of the painful things that happened to them.

Maybe you constantly push snooze on your alarm because you can't feel excited to be alive. Or, anxiety has you on edge, as if you've been drinking 50 cups of coffee. Perhaps you're struggling in relationships: either you're too clingy or too distant. Getting out of painful cycles can seem as impossible as breathing underwater. No one person is an expert on being well. Even so, our hearts were designed to heal. In tiny, baby steps, helping you develop sensed comfort and safety can make all the difference to well being. It can be just as painful to love a child who is struggling. Maybe the anger outbursts are overwhelming.
