As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I utilize systemic thinking by looking beyond an individual and observing how their surrounding environments/relationships impact them. I find this approach to be highly effective and necessary to promote personal growth. I believe that everyone is worthy of being able to share their story in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. I feel privileged to be a part of someone's journey to understanding their past, being aware of the present and setting goals for their future.

It's been a rough year for all of us. Some have struggled with mental health issues for many years and this past year may have made your struggles worse. Some may be realizing they have struggled with mental health and are just now accepting these issues. Others may only now be overwhelmed with unexpected loss or changes in their lives due to all that is going on in the world today. You are not alone. You don't have to process and live with these feelings on your own. Reach out to someone who can help you process your struggles and emotions in a non-judgmental environment.

Many times people turn to therapy when the ways that they have previously been able to cope to get through difficult situations, or life in general, are just not working anymore. You may have reached a time when striving for those changes becomes better than continuing on with what is currently occurring, but are not sure how to move forward. You want someone to really listen to you and to find effective ways for you to get "unstuck". Making change through therapy can be a good place to start. Therapy is a safe place where you can come and talk about your concerns and struggles without judgment or pressure.

There are many sides to ourselves we strive to find in the desire for whole and fulfilled lives. In the midst of knowing ourselves and others, a plethora of emotions and thoughts sometimes cloud your view. You may feel your relationships are like grains of sand slipping through the grasp you're striving to cling to. You may be a parent or educator who feels disconnected or at the end of your rope with the children in your daily life. And yet, there is beauty in that and a picture waiting to be created.

I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological assessments. The word "neuropsychological" may be overwhelming, but the experience does not need to be. Assessments assist with diagnosing neurological and psychiatric conditions such as post-concussion syndrome, dementia, vascular issues/impairment post-stroke, attention deficit disorders, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, psychological/psychiatric disturbances, and much more. Assessments also provide an avenue for comprehensive recommendations and collaborative treatment with physicians, professionals, and family.

Most people are surviving life instead of learning how to live it with fulfillment and satisfaction. Stressful experiences accumulate over time and steal our sense of control and hope, which is not fair and not necessary. If you want to regain balance and clarity, we can do that. We will identify themes, triggers, and learn to cope and conquer. If you are willing to work hard and be authentic, you can really make some vast changes. Together we can create more compassion, acceptance, and space for yourself to feel grounded and make meaningful growth.
