What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

I work with adults and teens going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing. Within my practice I use a holistic, mind-body approach including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate the effects of trauma in both children and adults. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, and tends to plague us all to varying degrees, at one time or another, whether it's the Big-T Trauma of an automobile accident or the loss of a loved one; or the smaller-t trauma a child experiences when encountering emotions that he or she can't yet put into words.

Life is unpredictable. Everyone struggles at some point in life. Sometimes the accompanying suffering tears at the very fabric of our understanding of ourselves and how we fit in the world. Life no longer makes sense. Life is not the way you thought it would be or should be. Unbidden desires, anxieties or depression come in to interfere with your ability to live the life you want. Others in your life behave in ways that disrupt your peace of mind and ability to live a meaningful life. Issues you thought you had dealt with long ago resurface in the present.
