I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with 18 years experience working with children, tweens, teens, adolescents, young adults and their families. We can all agree that at every age and stage of life we encounter hurdles. As we attempt to negotiate these hurdles they may bring about anxiety, depression, anger, academic and other school-related struggles, emotional struggles, trauma, eating disorders, self-harm (cutting), grief, executive functioning difficulties and self-esteem issues. As we address and manage these conditions we find ourselves, often times, needing help to do so.

I work collaboratively with my clients to expand their insight into all the relevant factors and/or influences that are keeping them from reaching their full potential. These factors often include, but are not limited to; the identified stressor(s) that brought them into therapy; the effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) of their current coping strategies; the influence past experiences and physical discomfort can have on their decision making and behavior; and increasing his or her awareness of their individual strengths and weakness. Simply put, I systematically help my clients make appropriate changes needed to meet their identified treatment goals.

Increasing your self esteem can make your life more fulfilling.
Are you feeling that your marriage could use a makeover? Concerned about the lack of intimacy in the relationship? Couples will be able to learn how to establish a solid friendship by creating love maps, increasing the fondness and admiration and creating more emotional connection. Another key will be how to deal with conflict, so issues can be dealt with instead of letting them get buried Many different tools will be used to get the same old argument into a different experience and hopefully a different ending. I am a certified Gottman therapist, having trained in Seattle with John and Julie Gottman. (Gottman.com) .

A trusting foundation with your therapist is the beginning to successful therapy. Our life experiences, exposure to trauma, and current events often impact behaviors and responses to these events, which can lead to the feeling of being misunderstood or confused. These issues often impact relationships, health, work, and self-esteem. A trusting collaboration with clients provides empowerment into gaining insight and self-awareness. My therapy style provides helpful guidance when clients are searching for improvements to their lives.

We all go through times in our lives when we find ourselves a little lost and simply need someone to help us find our way. I have been helping adolescents, adults and families find their way through challenging times since 1996. Primarily I utilize a client centered approach that allows clients to be in charge of their therapy and decide what the course of treatment will be and what goals to focus on. I also encourage clients to find their motivation and passions in life that will empower them to continue growing beyond the time in counseling.

My approach to counseling is a balance of a straightforward communication with the belief that clients are the experts of themselves. My goal is to help clients to discover their own inner wisdom and support a plan to move out of their stuckness. I believe that our early childhood experiences along with traumas we have experienced play a leading part in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are today.

Asking for help is hard and takes a lot of strength to do. Asking for help also shows just enough self worth in better one’s self. My clients primarily attend counseling to seek emotional support, guidance in their healing process, and regain their self worth and confidence. They also are working towards self empowerment and growth towards emotional stability. Clients also learn to change the negative beliefs and narratives created from past childhood or relationship abuse and trauma. I have also seen clients who find their faith as a foundation of their healing and I am trained in Immanuel Prayer by request.

I enjoy working with people who want to create positive and lasting changes in their lives. Sometimes this is accomplished by simply talking through a confusing and stressful experience with a caring person in a safe place. Sometimes positive change is made by learning and using a new skill. There are times when you might want and/or need a deeper journey to get to know yourself better, your natural strengths and limitations, the source of your suffering, your desires and values, and perhaps your direction in life. I am comfortable working with people in any of these ways.

I have always had a heart for children, especially those who are struggling. I believe that the mental health of children is of utmost importance as the experiences they have at a young age shape who they become as teenagers and, ultimately, adults. While counseling can be a serious matter for children, I believe in the importance of providing relaxed and enjoyable child-focused sessions. My therapy is centered around fun, play-based activities that help foster an environment which feels safe, inviting, and engaging for children.

Are there certain aspects of your life that you wish could be different or obstacles that are deterring you on your path? Are you offering the best version of yourself in your relationship with others? Do you ever question what it would mean to embrace the "real you"? We all have our own course to walk in this unique journey called life. But we also have the potential to change our direction at any time. The direction is determined by how we perceive our journey, and by the choices that we make as a result of those perceptions. Once we understand this concept, the potential for change becomes limitless!

I believe that humans are inherently resilient but that sometimes we need support to acknowledge our innate strengths in order to thrive. My ideal client is one who acknowledges that there are pieces of their life that need tending to. Whether it's life stress, grief, relationships, or identity, this person is open to the process of walking alongside someone who can assist them in building resiliency and becoming empowered.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
