Are you chronically worried and/or unhappy -- and can't "snap out of it?" Maybe you're stuck. Perhaps you feel lonely and misunderstood. I'd like to give you personal attention, understand you, and provide you warm, genuine, and nonjudgmental support and guidance. Together, we can identify and understand the causes of your pain, reinstill hope, and find ways for you to cope and regain pleasure in the here-and-now. My research on loss and mother-daughter relationships strengthens my work with individuals; couples; gender issues; parenting; anxiety and depression; and adjustment to loss and overall life changes.

People sometimes have this misconception that counseling is to “fix people” or that they “are the problem.” I do not think people are problems, but that we all have problems. Sometimes these problems need additional help and support that counseling can provide. This is why I utilize a wellness approach to counseling. A wellness approach focuses on the whole person by helping clients to identify their strengths and wants while assisting them with problems they are experiencing.

My clients consistently tell me what a profound positive impact our collaborative work in therapy has made on their lives, especially after they have felt "stuck" for a long time. Being able to "connect the dots," gain insights, and change behaviors can bring great relief and a sense of hope. I enjoy helping individuals, couples, or families cope with past, present, or chronic stressors and regain power and control over their lives and relationships. This is especially true for people who have experienced traumatic events and (as a result) may have symptoms of anxiety, depression, anger, and/or (behavioral) addictions.

Taking the step to get counseling takes a lot of courage. You are already on your way to reach your desired goals. I believe that everyone faces their own challenges and has their own unique experience, but you don't have to go through it on our own. It is my job to guide you in your journey to reach health and happiness. I work with adults, elders, and adolescents ages 12-17 with anxiety, depression, sexual trauma, and grief and loss. I also have special insights with people who are marginalized (BIPOC, LGBT+, Women etc.).

Asking for help is often the hardest step to take. It is usually when we are struggling the most that we need the most help. People are unique and I believe an eclectic therapeutic approach tailored to a person’s individual needs is the most effective. Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals with a variety of treatment needs, from mild struggles to serious mental illness and chemical dependency. As a psychologist, I currently work daily with law enforcement and medical first responders and understand the struggles faced by those that protect us.

I strive to provide services to anyone feeling misunderstood, unheard, lost or struggling with the next stage in their life. Society can have a picture of what our lives should look like and how we should feel when certain events happen to us, it can get hard when we do not fit into that picture. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and to validate our emotions to be able to find ourselves.

How We Treat One Another Matters: For better and for worse, across our whole lives, we operate in relationships. Our views of our "self" and how we relate to others develop from how we have been treated in relationships. Our capacities to love, to learn, to become our best, all emerge optimally within healthy relationships. Likewise, wounds of heart and soul emerge from ways we have been treated and/or choices we have made which have hurt us, sometimes very deeply. Persons who have experienced relational trauma and/or overwhelming life stressors are ideal candidates for clinical services at Gateway.

Has anxiety, depression, or trauma hindered you from experiencing life to the fullest? I want to remind you that you are not alone, nor should you continue to feel that way. Perhaps you are struggling with addiction, emotional pain, or feeling overwhelmed with the pressures of life. . . and struggling in solitude can be lonely. Currently, we live in an age that allows for us to disconnect from emotions and our bodies; while subscribing to a culture of suppressing emotions, over extending ourselves with busy schedules, and being unforgiving of failure.

Are you experiencing emotional overload, engaging in destructive patterns, or just plain stuck? In ways, our thoughts, behaviors, emotional reactions, and relationships are influenced by early childhood experiences, creating the lens in which we view the world and how we approach life. These learned ideals and behaviors may result from an ingrained, automatic emotional response that helped you to survive traumatic situations, impairing your ability to problem-solve and manage difficult situations and emotions. Change may be uncomfortable but with the appropriate skills, peace and healing is attainable.

Therapy may seem intimidating, but sometimes what you are most afraid of doing can be the very thing that will set you free! I believe that therapy, coupled with a mindset of positivity, can be the life-changing event that propels you out of negative circumstances. Unexpected things are going to happen in life, people may disappoint us; all we can really control is how we choose to handle things. I utilize courage, humor, empathy, and emotionally focused techniques to create a safe, non-judgemental space for couples, adults, and adolescents to explore, heal, and achieve lasting change in their lives.
