I am a therapist with over twenty years experience. I believe that all of us seek resolution or peace from our daily struggles; whether that be with our relationships or with work. My belief is that therapy can be an arena for change in order to achieve higher levels of personal satisfaction with life. The key to any therapeutic relationship is trust. Trust needs to be present between both the client and the therapist. My therapeutic style is warm, empathic but direct. I believe these attributes are vital to the therapeutic process.

"Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.” This quote by Sigmund Freud exemplifies what therapy means to me and it's an honor to be a part of your healing journey. Therapy is a dynamic, collaborative process and that's why I choose to incorporate different therapeutic techniques into my work. Therapy shouldn't be a "one size fits all" experience so we will work together to tailor a plan to put you on the path to healing.

Asking for help is a signal of strength and can lead you one step closer towards the life you imagine for yourself. 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.

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.

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.

We all experience difficult emotions throughout the course of our lives. Pain, of all kinds, is a part of the human experience. Significant problems arise when pain turns into suffering. I believe by changing the way we view ourselves and view the world, we can alleviate suffering. My goal in therapy is to create a space for you to explore new ways of experiencing life's most difficult emotions.

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.

We'll work together with intention, mutual respect, and a collaborative spirit. I primarily work with adults and couples regarding relationship issues and parents encountering 'parenting.'

Psychotherapy is a search to improve the emotional balance in one's life and to adjust the "fit" between personal preferences and social circumstances. By using a variety of strategies, it is often possible to reduce emotional obstacles and to open opportunities for a more satisfying daily life. As a psychologically experienced tour guide, I use academic and practical knowledge and the client-therapist relationship to help clarify thoughts and feelings and to suggest practical "homework".

I believe the key to healing lies within each of us. My passion is in helping others locate that key and unlock the fear, pain, and feeling of not being good enough and open the door to being the Authentic person you desire. I believe our emotions, aren't the enemy but guides toward helping us realize what we do and do not want for ourselves. Once we learn to be more aware of what we are doing that perpetuates our unhappiness, then we can make different choices, ones that bring us a greater understanding of ourselves and our relationships.

I am a licensed clinical social worker who offers individual, family and group psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults. My treatment approach is holistic and eclectic drawing from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, biofeedback and mindfulness-based theories to understand problems and bring about growth and change. I believe every individual is unique and treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs. I value client self-determination and I feel it is important to empower clients to be active participants in their own treatment process. Sessions focus on building on individual’s strength and capacity for change while addressing the stressor.
