Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your relationships dissatisfying or unmanageable? This may be due to a lack of boundaries and ineffective coping skills. Finding a therapist who you can relate to, you can trust, and be yourself with is the first step on the journey to reaching your goals. For the past 29 years I have focused my work on alcohol and drug abuse/dependence and narcissistic abuse and relationship loss/trauma.

At Thrive Counseling & Wellness, I have had extensive experience working with adults who experience chronic anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, among others. I tend to take a client centered perspective; I utilize different therapies to suit each individual client's needs. It's not always about the specific theory but more about what can I do to assist the client in achieving the perspective, growth and success that they desire. My ultimate goal is to "walk with the client" as he/she processes, experiences and implements the tools needed to effect helpful change.

One of my greatest joys, is helping individuals, couples and families learn to manage the various, yet often unavoidable, stresses of life. Our days are packed with work, school, family, and relationships. We come home depleted and then it starts all over again the next day. Feelings of anxiety, panic, depression, anger, and/or lack of motivation, are inevitable. So it grieves my heart when clients ask what's wrong with them. So while we may need to "power through" certain situations, I help my clients develop strategies that are tailor made to their circumstances and personality, to successfully complete the marathon of life.

Sometimes it is hard to ask for help. During our lives, we all reach the point where the stress becomes too much. One way to address that is by finding a supportive person to help. I aim to be that supportive person for you. I have been working with children ranging from 7-17, parents, adults, and families since 2007. I have taken time to raise my own children. I recognize the stress of balancing family, work, and personal lives. It is my goal to help you develop your strengths and coping skills to navigate life when it feels like too much. I have experience in helping families navigate difficult parent/child interactions.

You're tossing and turning with your mind churning over What Ifs or moments that haunt. You feel stressed or overwhelmed; a sense of dread always lurking in the background. Maybe you're snapping at people or pushing them away. It might seem like everyone else is able to do things so much easier or better. Sometimes it seems like you're moving through thick fog. But it doesn't have to be this way.

Central to my practice is the belief that all of us deserve respect no matter our histories, and have within ourselves the wisdom for peace and healing. Our individual journeys are at times celebratory and at other times heartbreaking. We may not always be able to choose the circumstances we face such as illness, or the end of a relationship. Instead, we can choose what we are going to do about our challenges. We can choose how to integrate this information into our overall life stories for greater joy, creativity, and balance.

Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad, frustrated and uncertain are common human experiences that can leave you disconnected from your best self. I help my clients bridge the gap between where they ARE and where they WANT TO BE by understanding their priorities through a collaborative identification of barriers, fears and hopes. We then design a treatment plan to develop insight about how internal thoughts and belief systems have evolved from unique life experiences and how they influence current interactions and behaviors. Effective strategies to cope with limitations are built upon a foundation of self-awareness.

My approach to therapy is based on empowerment and supporting people in a way that allows them to be the best versions of themselves. I tend to lean towards a more accessible, easy-going approach when helping clients work towards goals important to their journey. I find that bringing humor to the session lends to a more comfortable therapeutic environment. While identifying goals can often be challenging, my aim is to help clients identify strengths and learn the skills needed to make positive changes in their lives.

Sometimes life presents us with hardships that can cause worry, confusion, exhaustion, anger, sadness, or a mix of emotions. At times we may feel lost, and it can be hard to function at work, school, or home. Some of us are faced with new problems while others may have been doing their best to navigate these hardships for some time. Let’s partner together to reach your goals.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
