We all struggle with wondering who we are and what we are here for! This is part of being human us all. Unfortunately, if you are struggling it can feel horrible and influence the lens you see the world through. I don’t know what you’re looking for & what has brought you to a place of needing support. Maybe you’re looking for healing and restoration around a painful event or relationships. Are you searching for your voice? Your faith and spirituality are important to you, but do you experience disconnect in knowing how to live a transformed life? Do you just want to be a more authentic person and know counseling helps in some way?

I offer any spirituality /faith-informed counseling upon request and have extensive experience working with the Christian community.
Let's be honest- adulting is hard. Establishing a career, moving to a new city, dating, making friends...while all of these things are great, they can also be sources of stress, anxiety, and confusion. Sometimes, you just need a place to talk through it all. Therapy is a way to process and clarify your goals, learn more about yourself, and develop skills to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you see yourself ideally.

Many of my clients have chosen to work with me specifically because of their interest in exploring the intersection of their spirituality and other parts of their lives- including their sexuality.
For over 30 years, I have accompanied others on their journey towards greater self-awareness, more fulfilling relationships, and exploring the needs and challenges of maintaining sound emotional, physical and spiritual health. My experience is particularly helpful when working on self-esteem issues, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, and faith and spiritual development. My clinical work draws upon skills developed while working as a hospital chaplain, pastoral counselor, bereavement counselor, youth counselor and a mental health therapist in a social service agency.

I strive to meet each client where they are in their process and walk with them as they move toward healing and fullness of life. Within each of us is a movement toward growth, but it's often derailed by our experiences and our interpretations of these experiences. I help my clients identify these points of derailment so that they may be free to live their lives fully and to become their most authentic selves.

), trauma, depression, stress management, relationship conflict, men's issues and struggles with identity and spirituality .
Along the journey through life challenges are inevitable and there aren't always easy or clear answers about why things happen and what to do about them. We want our lives and life itself to have value, meaning and purpose; and finding or creating these things for ourselves can be confusing, frustrating and even scary. However, finding our deeper reason(s) in life can also be rewarding, exciting and empowering experience that provides the hope, courage, strength and tenacity needed to face challenges in life. Having the courage to begin this process and asking for support along the way doesn't mean you're weak, it makes you strong!

Often we find ourselves in our life's journey seemingly finding that the right road has been lost. Have your dreams for yourself changed? Do you lack clarity for what your life could look like? Have you experienced past trauma that seems to return to your mind when you least expect it? Has your own view of spirituality changed or shifted over the years? Have you experienced trauma from religion due to who you are? Are you seemingly in a hamster wheel of actions looking for a change? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you re-create your own path through life.

Whether you’re seeking therapy due to dissatisfaction regarding a specific issue in your life or just trying to find peace in the midst of world events, I strive to help clients develop self-compassion, resilience, healing and greater happiness. While suffering is a normal part of being human, therapy provides a safe space to explore our response to internal and external stresses and develop a greater sense of peace, meaning, and fulfillment. In addition to genuine concern and empathy, clients have mentioned my 'particular blend of pragmatism and humor' as helpful in establishing a collaborative therapeutic relationship.

I specialize in relationships and communication, life transitions, dating, career counseling, anxiety and stress management, millennials and emerging adults, family conflict, and the gap between values and spirituality / religion.
Are you going through a hard life transition? Do you need relationship support? Do you feel stuck, anxious, and in need of a space for personal reflection? As anxiety builds, it has a way of controlling our life; our mood, self-esteem, relationships, work, school, and sleep all suffer. My holistic approach addresses clients as a "whole," and we dive into how you feel presently, your future expectations, and how your past contributes to your current feelings. We reflect on who you are, the environment you're surrounded by, and where there is opportunity for change.

Spirituality Therapists

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?

Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.

What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?

There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.

Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?

Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.

How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?

​​Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
