Searching for help is a courageous first step to change. You may be feeling anxious or depressed. Are you looking for support in changing addictive behaviors from a non-judgmental approach? Perhaps you have experienced traumatic events that have left you feeling "stuck." Or maybe you have relationship issues and aren't sure where to go from here. Many of my clients have experienced grief and loss and simply need support working through the stages of grief. I have also served children and families. Whatever your needs, there IS hope.

Life is hard, and none of us escape unscathed. We are all bruised and broken in some way. If we are fortunate, we have friends and family who walk beside us through the difficult times. Even so, we sometimes feel alone and at a loss as to how to move forward. We need further support from a trained professional who will walk beside us; offering support, empathy, insight, and encouragement. This is therapy. Counseling is one the great passions of my life. I have been counseling for almost 20 years and have wide and varied experience. I counsel all ages and use a variety of treatment methods tailored to each individual I see.

I enjoy working with families and children and have done so in one capacity or another for 25 years. It was while I was working in the field of addictions that I realized how the family system influences and shapes us. I joined the American Association of Christian Counselors in 1998 and like to incorporate my faith in the counseling process. I am a foster and adoptive parent, which lead to my interest in attachment and trauma issues. I provide therapy for anxiety, depression, co-dependency, sexual abuse and addictions, as well as play therapy for children with behavior problems.

I enjoy working with people who are at some kind of crossroads in their lives. There's a problem to be resolved, a decision to make, a change that needs to happen. Sometimes we all need a compassionate listener and an honest, candid guide on the path to making our next move in life. I prefer a collaborative approach, working together to reach resolution.

You do you! As a therapist I utilize expressive arts and experiential therapies to help you examine and work through the issues you are having, and in a way that works for you as an individual. Anxiety and depression often respond well to experiential therapies. Let's dig in and get our hands dirty. I'll be right beside you! I provide counseling to individuals, families and group therapy. I offer school based services for students, and can also provide family therapy.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” - Albert Einstein. I believe that the script we tell ourselves and others is incredibly powerful. The way in which we relate to others, navigate the world, and give meaning to our lives is all guided by our perception of our own narratives. Unfortunately many of us are dominated by our inner critic and negative aspects of that story without including the most important part - you are still here. Even through life's tribulations and traumas there are moments of triumph and resilience. Until we look at the unique parts of our story we remain in misery.
