Anxiety, depression, self esteem concerns, relationship issues, and stress management are my areas of interest.
*Accepting new in person and/or telehealth (virtual) referrals * People choose therapy for various reasons but the goal remains the same: wanting to heal, feel better, and learn how to be mentally healthy long term. For over 10 years I have helped teens and adults achieve those results through education, mindfulness, authentic and culturally responsive communication, and various evidence based practices. Identifying mental health concerns and understanding how they impact you is not always an easy task. Having the right person to support and guide is an essential piece to your healing and growth.

Life can be crazy sometimes and as a therapist, I want to walk with you through anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, a new medical diagnosis that threatens life as you know it, or transitioning from one stage in life to another. Therapy can be a long or short journey to help you gain the insight needed to explore how past and present experiences impact your ability to manage life's daily stressors and help you develop the coping skills you need to get on with your life. I strive to establish a therapeutic relationship that builds on trust, honesty, empathy and compassion as the pathway to healing and wellness for yourself.

Special interests include relationship and identity issues; adolescent and women's issues; anxiety and PTSD; blended families; and lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender concerns.
Twenty-five years into it, I still love being a counselor and psychotherapist. It is an honor and a privilege to be involved in the personal struggle and transformation of each client, couple, and family I see. I regard therapy more as an art than a science, though I certainly utilize current research in my practice. Most often my clients present problems in living rather than "mental illness" per se and they appreciate my attention to their strengths, resources, and spiritual concerns.

This is why the relationship between you and I is most important in our work.
Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.

***Accepting new patients*** Brene Brown says, that "daring greatly is being brave and afraid every minute of the day at the exact same time". Deciding to participate in therapy is one of the most brave and scary decisions a person can make, but it is also one of the most rewarding. I congratulate you on taking the step to see change happen, and it would be an honor to walk with you through this journey! Using a strengths based perspective, together we will work to address the various barriers and life circumstances that are getting in the way of living your best life.

I consider our relationship a mutual, collaborative, authentic, and intentional one.
It is not common to be taught how to process our emotional experiences or ask for help, which is why starting or resuming therapy can often be a feat of its own. The same sentiment is true if you have found yourself wondering if you have ADHD or struggle with other neurodivergence. Through psychological testing, we can uncover the different ways your brain synthesizes information from your environment and ultimately impacts your ability to perform. I am committed to acknowledging the ways intersecting identities show up in the testing process and provide you with an integrative list of resources and recommendations.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
