Are your days consumed with worry, fear or depression? Do you feel as though life is getting you down? Are you struggling with stress or anxiety?

I assist individuals of all ages, adolescents, teens, college students and adults in navigating difficult situations. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. Talking about our worries, struggles or vulnerabilities can seem scary, but getting help doesn't have to be!

Daily anxiety, panic attacks, flashbacks, trauma, nightmares, and/or PTSD - living with these symptoms can be extremely difficult. I know, because I experienced much of this myself! I tried to get better for years, and got lots of well-meaning advice that didn’t really help, and sometimes made things worse. When I became a counselor years later, I was really surprised to learn about specific treatments that can give relief of these symptoms within a few months — even sometimes within about 6 weeks! I work with these well-researched methods now, and watch clients change their lives for the better, over and over.

When we spend our energy avoiding painful thoughts, feelings and emotions, we’re often left feeling disconnected, with little to give to the things that enrich and fulfill us. Counseling can help you discover the courage and skills to move through the things that keep you stuck. I am passionate about walking alongside clients as they begin to face whatever is holding them back.

“What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just be normal?” That’s what you’ve thought to yourself countless times. The answer? It’s not you, it’s trauma. Trauma wreaks havoc on our lives, easily causing both depression and anxiety. It doesn’t stop there. It also sets us up to experience major difficulties with functioning in our personal and professional lives. It’s time for you to heal. If you’re ready to learn how to reduce your symptoms and explore the impact of trauma in your current relationships and on your well-being, then you’re in the right place.

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.
