I work with adolescents and adults using a range of therapy skills from play based therapy to cognitive restructuring because everyone needs something different! Additionally, I am nationally certified to provide Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF- CBT ) to children 12-18.
Welcome to therapy! Whether you’re here for the first time or you’re looking for a check-up you have made the decision to care for yourself. Therapy is about you and the change you want to see for yourself. Life is full of challenges, some we may create for ourselves while others are handed to us. My goal is to help you feel confident in finding your own solutions to problems no matter the source. This is a partnership, so whether you're struggling with past trauma, relationships, or life changes we will work together to identify and explore barriers holding you back and grow your strengths so you can be fully...You.

I am also certified in the evidenced based treatment Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT).
Do you ever find yourself asking “is there more?” or question your feelings of fulfillment? I am committed to helping you find the strength and resilience to persevere. It is incredibly courageous to make the decision to explore yourself in the pursuit of understanding your story. In therapy, you will have opportunities to explore what is working and what is not, unveil parts of yourself that may be challenging to sit with, and learn to embrace them in a way that allows you to be your most authentic and best self. As an art therapist, the creative process may provide a way to communicate when word aren't enough.

With special training in anxiety and trauma, and experience treating depression and other mental illnesses, you can expect me to suggest the tools that can best meet your needs, including task-centered model therapy, solution-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), strength-based therapy, and mindfulness.
Have you, or your teenager, felt overwhelmed by anxiety? Are persistent feelings of sadness interfering with your ability to function at work, in school, or at home? Do you have difficulty getting sleep or do you feel nervous all of the time? Many of us are challenged by emotions that we have difficulty handling. In therapy, you can expect me to bring the best tools to meet your needs, building your coping skills, and improving your ability to manage those difficult emotions. If you experienced trauma in the past, I can help you understand the effects of that trauma on your life and help you function in your everyday life.

 Techniques that are used include slowing things down (mindfulness) and exploring our relational patterns that express themselves in our thoughts and feelings ( cognitive behavioral therapy).
So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

My approach to therapy involves empowering persons to better understand themselves and acquire the tools to heal and make desired life changes. I utilize a combination of cognitive -behavioral and psychodynamic therapeutic orientations in my practice. Consistent with an emphasis on empowerment is my wholistic focus on total well being. I promote balance across all personal dimensions (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and social). My life coaching practice draws from a similar wealth of psychological knowledge, however, with more of an educational emphasis. I facilitate the acquisition of problem solving and success orientation skills, aimed at enhancing personal empowerment and life satisfaction.

I use a bottom-up approach starting with somatic experiencing (how we feel in our bodies) building up to cognitive restructuring (reframing maladaptive thoughts).
There are many misconceptions about what it means to be in therapy. Anyone can benefit from therapy, regardless of what walk of life they come from. It does not mean that you are broken, weak or crazy. What it does mean is that you are up for the challenge of confronting harmful beliefs, habits, and communication styles so that you can live a life that is authentically yours. Sitting across from this screen right now takes courage and vulnerability. Our mental health shows itself in all areas of our lives: relationships, perception, management of daily life, sense of self, and our ability connect to our emotions and body.

With the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, some dialectical behavioral therapy interventions, and a holistic approach, clients that I have worked with have reframed their thoughts and feelings.
A great counselor is someone who embodies patience, empathy, emotional regard and respect for others. When working with a therapist, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Coming into my office allows a person to have the support they need to make. Despite age, I enjoy working with clients from different walks of life looking to take control of their lives and focus on the things that make them happy. I focus on building rapport so clients are comfortable coming through the door. I not only want to know how I can help you and the concerns you present, but I am also invested in knowing who YOU are as a person.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
