About

Are you distracted by something so difficult or complicated that it interferes with you getting things done? Does it keep you from experiencing peace, joy, and purpose? When we experience stress, trauma, or grief, it is not uncommon for our lives to quickly unravel. If you need help unpacking and processing your experiences, or if you need help with motivation and direction, I can help. By finding better balance, you can gain control of your life, so you can achieve stronger self-awareness and more meaningful relationships.
I was a college professor, and I was in the military for over 25 years. I deployed 4 times. I have considerable experience working with students, military and family members, and veterans. I use Accelerated Resolution Therapy (A.R.T.), along with a solution-focused approach, to help clients move beyond their stuck points towards growth and positive change.
Sometimes we can navigate stress, trauma, and grief on our own, but there are times we need the guidance of a therapist to deal with the emotional pain, fear, confusion, and lingering effects of it. If you want greater control of your life, healthier relationships, and a renewed sense of purpose, reach out to me. I can help!
