As a therapist, I work from the perspective that therapy can enable you to positively change your understanding of yourself, your encounters with life's stressors, and your capacity to find pleasure and enjoyment. My approach is founded in building strong relationships based on trust and respect that enable one to develop tools to change existing patterns that previously caused unhappiness and discomfort. I utilize family and individually focused therapy and employ the methods of ACT, DBT, CBT and EMDR to help people bring understanding to their lives and enable transitions from discomfort and sadness toward happiness.

During these uncertain times, even people who normally handle stress well are struggling to get through this. Be proactive - reach out for help BEFORE you need it. Insurance will cover telehealth sessions. We will work together to set goals and decide what makes the most sense for you to work on now. My strength is in forming therapeutic relationships so that you will feel understood. Because of my work experience in different areas (such as Human Resources and Corrections/Law Enforcement) I can usually connect pretty well with most clients.

Men's lives are undergoing a remarkable evolution. Only a generation ago to become a strong man generally meant learning to avoid being tripped up or held back by what you felt. Now men are encouraged and even expected to "know themselves" and be more emotionally present in their marriages and other important relationships. The advantages of greater emotional self-awareness include: (1) greater depth of connection with your spouse, children and close male friends, (2) better access to your own emotional strengths including your stress tolerance and resilience, and (3) an enhanced sense of purpose and personal meaning.

When life is overwhelming, I want to give you tools that can bring immediate relief. My approach is to tailor our work to your needs. Although I have worked with many clients with varying issues of all ages, my specialties include issues of grief/loss, chronic medical illnesses (cancer, diabetes), depression, anxiety, relationship issues, LGBTQ and fertility issues. I strive to help you concentrate on the present, focus on the future and explore the past to understand current behaviors and coping. I create a safe place where you can share and acquire more coping tools to adjust to life changes.

Aren't you tired of being told to "relax", "stop overthinking", "you are too sensitive" and "you worry too much"? People tell you this as if you don't want to relax, stop overthinking, let things get you upset and worry! If you could, you would! Hearing this from friends and family members doesn't help. In fact, it can make you feel even worse. You have tried to stop on your own but your mind continues to fill up with things that make you stressed out and you have a hard time turning it off. You are not alone! I get it and can completely relate! That is why I love helping people find relief.

Not Accepting New Clients - Are you looking to find peace, perseverance, and resilience through everyday struggles and stressors? Imagine what it would feel like to not worry all the time or do the “what-if” dance in your mind. Whether your struggles are about a life transition, a relationship issue, experiencing stress, physical & emotional changes such as peri-menopause/menopause, or anything else that feels like "something's not quite right," finding a safe outlet to express yourself, understand your anxiety, build your coping skills, and find solutions is where your transformation begins.

How often do you find yourself saying, "I want to live to my fullest potential and nothing is going to stop me." Now you, more than likely, think "If I can just get through the day, I'm good." When was the last time you felt you could make positive change for good. It's painful to feel stuck, indecisive and overwhelmed. You long for the quality of life you believe you deserve but, often, are not sure what to do next. I have over 20 years experience in helping clients address life issues related to depression, anxiety, substance use and trauma.

While in school, I was asked why I choose the field of psychology. I replied, "life doesn't need to be so painful". Finding relief isn't always easy. Life offers us many challenges that are not only difficult to face; but, even more painful to face alone. I am here to offer unbiased support and help processing through and uncover feelings, beliefs, behaviors, and consequences to life's discomforts. I counsel: ADULTS in transition, personal development, trauma, depression, anxiety, impulse, and mood disorders. ADOLESCENCE: social anxiety, ocd, adhd/add, school issues/avoidance, self-harm, and issues with self-esteem.

This has been such a hard season for many individuals and families navigating challenging issues with grief and loss. Most of my work has been providing support to children, adolescents, and adults during stressful experiences and transitions. My job allows me the privilege to witness the resilience and strength of individuals as they move through unexpected challenges. I believe it is important for all people to have a safe, non-judgmental, authentic space to feel validated and to help bring balance and healing to their life. I also work with therapists and medical providers who experience trauma and loss at work.

Sometimes the hardest thing is asking for help. Choosing to enter therapy is a courageous act and one of the best gifts you could give yourself. Finding the right therapist for you, someone whom you can trust, who makes you feel safe, and believes in you might feel difficult and daunting at times but is also one of the strongest predictors of successful therapy. I feel honored and grateful to each and every one of my clients who entrusted me with their stories and embarked on their healing journey with me. My goal is to meet you where you are and help you gain the necessary insight and skills to live the life you want and deserve.

Our passion is to help you heal and grow in order to fully live the life God created you for. Life can be difficult and there are many things that happen that are out of our control. Sometimes it is a diagnosis like anxiety, ADHD, or depression but other times it is too much stress, a life transition, or difficult relationships that causes hardship or pain. Maybe you do not even know what exactly the problem is. Or maybe you are doing fine but want to grow into your best version. While we cannot change what is out of our control, there is so much we can do and there is always hope no matter how you are feeling right now.

Do you struggle with mood disorders like depression or anxiety? Do you have trouble managing big emotions like anger and frustration? Have you wondered if relationships could be better and more fulfilling? I value working with clients who will, in one way or another, let me join them where they're at and work toward a mutual understanding so that we can achieve the progress they're looking for in therapy. Sometimes, that equates to an instant rapport but, in other cases, it is just as rewarding to work through resistance and apprehension and help clients to "buy in" to the therapeutic process.
