You are feeling out of sorts and not knowing where to go next in life. Sadness, confusion, frustration, anxiety. The experience of the transition you are in - whether it is a relationship, loss, a new child, school, your identity - is hard because it is uniquely your own. Things in the past do not feel resolved and it is now starting to affect your everyday life. It’s time to face these issues and navigate change. You also appreciate prompt, open communication. You’re looking to make an investment in yourself and I take that very seriously.

Trauma can be understood as any extraordinarily stressful experience in life that has a lasting negative impact on someone. People who have suffered from PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Traumatic Events, Relationship Devastation, Emotional Neglect, Job Loss, and/or loss of a loved one often lost faith in counseling because regular talk therapy may have helped somewhat, but they didn’t actually “feel” (physically) better. Yet many symptoms and difficulties still plagued a person, even if they were “thinking right” about a past incident and trying to “move on.” It's time for a new approach. Trauma-Informed Interventions go beyond talk.

As a Marriage & Family Therapist/Counselor my goal is to provide families, couples and individuals with a safe environment where they can explore themselves and the possibility of change within their life and their relationships. Our lives are centered on relationships with others. Relationships are the building blocks of life; but, they can also be very debilitating. When those relationships become troubled, sometimes assistance from family and friends may not be enough to find balance within yourself or other relationships. Lucky for us, there are people who have dedicated their lives to helping others along their journey.

I am passionate about working with people who have become stuck somewhere along in their journey. My work with clients is based in attachment theory, believing that the strongest attachments from our life, greatly impact how we understand ourselves and our relationships . Family, work and school pose as great points of contact with addressing our basic needs for belonging and significance. For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them.

In my experience working in the mental health field for the last decade, therapy is often sought after someone has suffered long enough or until the symptoms become unmanageable. It is my hope that as we continue to destigmatize mental health more people can feel comfortable utilizing this valuable service as a preventative measure and not as a last resort. My approach as a therapist is simple: helping others increase awareness and insight into their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Learning to navigate your heart—its past and present aches and longings—and learning how to walk alongside others is essential for discovering purpose in your life. Real, meaningful living involves finding safe places to tell your story and share your struggles; it means relying on someone to hear and hold what your heart has held alone. Counseling is a focused and supportive space for such work to be done. Every journey begins with a single step. An inch in the right direction.

Being met right where you are by a safe, curious, and experienced therapist can restore hope, cultivate insight, heal wounds, build positive momentum, and lead to lasting transformation.

Gaining an outside perspective, supportive validation and assistance with defining the issues that are most pertinent to you and your progression toward better life outcomes are crucial. Spending the time to address these issues is an important investment in yourself which can impact your relationships, your physical health and your future.

Has life been getting harder to handle lately? I can help you get to the heart of the matter quickly and then we can co-creative solutions tailored to your specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' Sometimes the life disruption you are experiencing may be the beginning of an evolution toward a new stage, where life eventually becomes easier and more peaceful. Adult stage theory was the central theory in my doctoral program. I also am trained in leadership assessment and coaching models based on adult stage theory. Life does not have to keep being so hard.
