My goal is to listen to each client, hear the person's wants and needs, and support growth towards an increased state of self-awareness, life satisfaction, and relationship fulfillment. Despite the serious nature of issues discussed, my clients and I often find ourselves laughing together. I specialize in treatment/ assessment of psychological disorders in preschool/ school-aged children, adolescents, and adults. My focus on children helps me understand psychological underpinnings in adults I treat. I provide play therapy with children/families; group/individual psychotherapy with adolescents and adults; and I work extensively with individuals and couples presenting with a range of relationship/ sexual issues.

My fundamental orientation is one of systemic therapy. Psychological problems that afflict people are oftentimes related to the context of their lives and the quality of their interpersonal relationships.

I am an Imago Relationship Therapist. Most of the issues we struggle with in relationships begin with communication breakdowns. Over time, couples begin to feel powerless when talking about the hard issues, because it usually becomes a painful power struggle and no one feels heard. Communication breakdowns happen because no one was taught healthy ways to deal with conflict. If you knew what to do, you'd do it. Imago Relationship Therapy is that "something different," allowing you to see that conflict in a relationship is growth and healing trying to happen. I'd love to guide you as you discover a safe way to communicate.

Registered Clinical Social Worker Intern, MSW, RCSWi
Verified
LGBT, Relationships/Marriage, Sex, Kink/Fetish, Career Goals, Anxiety/Depression, HIV... Sometimes it can be so easy to sweep things under the rug and deal with it later. The problem is often we have so much going on that we forget to address things that we say we will. This therapeutic practice strongly believes that every person, every situation, and the surrounding circumstances are all unique. Your situation may sound like or seem similar to someone else’s but YOU are the factor that makes yours different, and that’s what the main focus will be; how you can be empowered to explore with me and take solutions into your world.

When life doesn't go as planned it can leave you feeling overwhelmed, unsure, and stuck. Unresolved over time, these challenges can result in feelings of anxiety, depression, or stress that you just can't seem to kick. Maybe you're just starting to sense that something is wrong or perhaps you've been struggling for quite some time. Figuring out how to overcome these obstacles can be stressful, but there is no need to struggle alone. It's possible to heal from the past, have more fulfilling relationships, break free from limiting patterns, and feel good about yourself!

It can be hard and scary to ask for help! Change and growth are difficult. It can seem impossible at times! My goal is to help regain hope, improve mental health, and gain new skills to give clients the ability to live the life they want to live. I truly believe that no one is worthless and everyone has the potential to improve their lives. Sometimes it takes a good support system and little help!

I have spent the majority of my professional career in a military environment and consider it an honor to have helped individuals with significant trauma, depression, anxiety, and overall life stress. The integration of physical and behavioral health is the epitome of why I entered the mental health field. My mission and approach helps bridge a gap that isn't often addressed in healing. My mission as a therapist is to help people heal themselves. Using holistic techniques, we address concerns comprehensively, leading to deeper healing and long-lasting balance.

You are responsible adult working towards your goals but lately it has been so overwhelming and you are starting to doubt yourself. Your confidence has been shaky and stress feels overwhelming. You try to show a happy face, but inside you feel unsure, exhausted, anxious, and negative in outlook. You find yourself struggling with motivation and isolating from others. You want to go out into the world and live life but it feels so hard to get started. You don't want to feel this way any longer.

The first premise in my practice is the respect I have for the person coming to me seeking to start psychotherapy. I understand how difficult it is to start therapy and talk to someone about our problems. No one is alike, no life style is the same. I listen to each of my patients allowing them time to familiarize with the purpose of the therapy and to begin to genuinely speak about the difficulties they encounter in their lives. Psychotherapy is a process of discovery and growth. As a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst I strive to facilitate this process.

Many times life can be so overwhelming that breathing seems to become a challenge and feeling your heart will burst the new norm. Other times, your thoughts and feelings become so unbearably heavy and painful, completing daily mundane tasks become monumental challenges. Then the feelings of guilt and hopelessness invade you accompanied with their friends, Negative Thoughts. They become intrusive, setting up camp in your mind, and drowning you with sadness, anger, frustration, dread, helplessness, worry or any combination of these. These thoughts and feelings are real and sometimes even visceral, yet they don't have to paralyze you.

A key to the effectiveness of therapy is the relationship itself; it's important to me that you feel accepted for exactly who you are at this moment. As your partner in change, I'm always looking beneath the surface to make meaning and connections. While helping you challenge unproductive thoughts and sharing tried and true techniques, I will help you process the experiences that have led to your current state so you can actively choose how to go forward on your journey, becoming the author of your own story. This way, you can become more resilient, better able to handle future challenges, and more prepared to rebound from setbacks.
