I utilize Brainspotting, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Emotion Focused Therapy to treat traumatic stress and draw from existential and client-centered modalities.
If life has lost its color or if your smile is less than half-hearted, come to my office, and we can explore where all the color and heart went to go hide. Whether escape has been the bottom of a bottle, your bed, or another person, I will support you as we face the emotions and fears that have been chasing you. If you hate the world, your abusers, or yourself, we can rewrite the rest of your story so that it doesn't have to be a tale of despair, but a tale of overcoming. If you feel like some part of you has died, let's bring it back to life.

Like a lot of therapists I tend to be eclectic in my theoretical approach but I favor CBT, Existential, and solution focused.
Are you struggling to find purpose? Do you feel out of control and overwhelmed? I would love to talk to you. You are not alone. You are not broken, you are just human. I want to start off by saying you have worth. Your life has value. Your hopes, dreams, and opinions matter. I work largely with adolescents and young adults. I focus with behavior concerns, anxiety, depression, identity issues, life transitions, family dynamics, and religious trauma. I can also work from a theological perspective and I have a particular interest in helping those who feel at odds with or hurt by institutionalized religion and the church.

Something happened. Something that feels difficult to impossible to share with others. Feelings of shame or worthlessness seem all-consuming. Maybe you feel like the things that used to bring you joy don't anymore. Or you just feel so. Tired. All. The. Time. Or you feel a constant current of anxiety humming a chorus of "What if, what if, what if" in the background of every waking moment. Maybe there's an inner voice that insists if people see the real you, bad things will happen. Maybe you've been using food, exercise, perfectionism, sex, or self-harm to try to keep all these unbearable thoughts and emotions at bay.
