"Life is a roller coaster isn't it? You must be experiencing a down time to be here looking for a therapist. How do we hang on in the tough times when we feel tired and overwhelmed? I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside others who are looking to deal with their own concerns. I use traditional behavior therapy models like CBT, DBT, solution-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I also use humor as one of my own coping mechanisms and incorporate it into my counseling strategy. Let's talk and see if I can help. "

Even if you have answers to those questions, you may be hindered in truly fulfilling your wants and needs or even determining what they are. I view therapy as an opportunity to collaboratively and holistically explore, reduce and resolve issues that block your ability to live life fully. I emphasize overall wellness in mind, body, emotions and spirit (if desired) rather than focusing solely on cognitive mental health."
