I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

I work with couples and individuals and support issues including, relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, etc. I have found the most effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

You want to be listened to and not judged. You want to be understood and accepted for who you are. You want to clarify and live by your own values. You want to understand that what happened to you wasn't your fault and doesn't define you. You want to be in healthy relationships. You want to learn to believe in yourself and your ability to live a purposeful and fulfilling life. You want to learn to be self-compassionate and recognize that you are good enough as you are. You want to grow deeper into your own goodness. And you don't want to wait for these things until you are no longer grieving or feeling depressed or anxious.

Finding and meeting a therapist can be hard, and making sure you have a great fit is crucial. Because the quality of the connection between us is essential to getting the best treatment, I offer free consultations. If you are not quite ready to make a full initial appointment, I'm happy to meet with you in person for a 30 minute conversation in order to make sure we are a good match to work together. The focus of my work is long-term therapy with in-depth exploration of creativity, meaning, spirituality, dreams, vocation and purpose.

I believe that everyone has the capacity for strong, healthy relationships, and though we sometimes stumble and fall or simply "get stuck" in our personal journey or in relationship with our partners, we can pick ourselves up, brush off the dust, and continue on with love and joy. My work with couples is focused on helping them find their way through the rough patches-helping them ease their loneliness by finding strength in each other...together.

I enjoy working with clients who actively participate in their therapy. It is important to be ready to enter into therapy. The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.

Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal.

My approach is one that honors each client's strengths and path towards wholeness. I empower clients towards their own self-healing. My work is integrative - utilizing mindfulness and inviting the soul/spirit, mind & body to drive the process of therapy. I specialize in non-pathologizing therapies. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety first and foremost. I feel that spirituality is an integral part of the healing process.

I enjoy working with adolescents, teens, and young adults. These life phases are times of constant transition. We're trying to find a sense of belonging, striving to do well in school/work, all while figuring out who we really are and who we want to become. Balancing all of this can be overwhelming, especially when things happen in life that are beyond our control. We can all use a little extra support. Finding the right therapist can help us work through the hard times, heal, and ultimately, thrive.

Don't over-think therapy. It's just not that complicated. When things get difficult, it's often hard to ask for help. We all face challenges, and we often overcome them on our own. Sometimes it takes much longer than we'd like, and that's when therapy comes into play. Why spend months or years taking on a situation or challenge by yourself, when you could work through it in far less time? Insanity is doing the same things, over and over, and expecting different results. Try something new, and break those old patterns.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Sylva Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
