Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

I believe therapy is a collaborative process and as we work together, we will begin to identify patterns that may be keeping you feeling stuck.  Do you sometimes know something with your mind but don’t believe it with your emotions?  Are you tired of holding onto old thoughts and beliefs that are no longer yours?

NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Trauma can affect us in ways we are not always aware of. Healing can help us in ways we never knew were possible. Stressful and distressing life events can leave us feeling alone, wounded, anxious, sad, or angry. Until the trauma is healed, we may continue to stay stuck. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and young adults (ages 5-30), who are struggling with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Self injury, Suicidality, Grief & Loss, Anger, and other uncomfortable emotions. By treating the potential trauma that lies beneath the surface, I can help you find peace and healing.

How does the "talking cure" help? It might have even been called the "listening cure." Having a helpful and supportive ear is something many people find they need at various transition points in their lives. Having a safe place to talk, in a warm and supportive environment, is crucial. The tool of our work is the relationship and, as research has shown, is the most important predictor of success in psychotherapy. I enjoy working with my patients as they seek to find their way to a richer and more fulfilling life.

So here we are trying to get through life, with a plate full of existing stressors and struggles, and now add the stress of the COVID-19 crisis. COVID-19 creates worries and fears, it adds additional burdens and challenges to day-to-day life, and brings increased emotional strain. This is on top of an already complicated life, where we are trying to manage our own emotional health, family and work / school demands, relationship issues, and traumas. I want to extend an invitation to talk because connecting with someone who understands emotional wellbeing and trauma might help you cope during this stressful time.

I believe that individuals are able to benefit from therapy once they experience the right connection. Connection allows for a safe, non-judgmental environment that allows the individual to focus on their therapeutic needs. My experience includes years of counseling experience, supervisor/supervisee, and continuing education to keep with current and ethical practices. As a therapist, I prefer to meet each client where they are and help them on a path to where they would like to be.
