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 am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

I’ve had the privilege of working with many individuals and families over the course of 9 years in a variety of settings including office and school based outpatient, intensive in-home, school based day treatment, and a primary care pediatric office. During that time I saw that everyone is capable of change if they have the right supports and tools. I specifically enjoy supporting children and their families through difficult or challenging times and helping children and adults heal from trauma. Treatment is focused on the individual's and family goals that are set at the beginning of treatment.

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.

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.

MY APPROACH TO HELPING: I see life as a journey. Sometimes we get in a rut and have difficulty getting out, or sometimes we think we are on the right road and things turn out differently than expected, leaving us devastated and not knowing how or what to change. At times, we are unaware of our repeated patterns or how early life experiences have affected us. We usually do the best we can with what skills we have at the time. Sometimes, we have to change our skill set and develop strategies and skills that will help us be happier and more functional people. Life is a journey, one step at a time.

I have many years of experience helping adolescents, young adults, adults, families and parents function more effectively in their relationships and in the world. Rather than focus on diagnoses or symptoms, I prefer to see a client as whole person and to help them unearth the roots of their issues or problems. It takes bravery, commitment, compassion and sometimes a supportive guide, to face our pain and transform our relationship to it. By letting go of past emotional burdens, we can then more easily work to change the behaviors that result from them.

Don’t let the stigma of mental illness and therapy get in the way of being the best version of yourself. Nido Qubein (Motivational Speaker) once said, “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start” so why not start today? I partner with you to provide a safe space to be authentically you. Therapy is about being honest with yourself about things that you may not want to face. I specialize in working with individuals who live with depression, anxiety, suicidal and self-harming thoughts.
