When we experience emotional pain, our attention can become very narrow and we tend to focus on all that is going wrong. This is more so when that emotional pain has its roots in trauma. It becomes even harder to widen our lens to access strength and recovery. As a trauma-focused therapist, I’ve devoted my career to helping others find their pathway to healing from childhood adversity, sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse, and substance use issues. I use evidence-based practices to help manage anxiety , reduce stress, gain self-confidence, improve relationships, and cope with the ongoing difficulties of life.

Some of the methods I use include exploring anxiety and avoidance behaviors by creating exposures, utilizing mindfulness-based skills, practicing self-compassion, acceptance, and exploring values.
I believe that life is a beautifully challenging and unpredictable experience. The ebbs and flows of life are what makes us human. When we are caught in the lows of life, we often feel this lack of control, we feel stuck, or we feel this inability to find the ‘right answer.’ I would like to show you that you have the answers within, you have the tools within, and we will work together as a team to regain a sense of direction in your life. Therapy is a vulnerable experience; therefore, I intentionally create an atmosphere that feels safe, allows your stories to be heard, and empowers you to be your authentic self.

I have a versatile theoretical background with experience with the military, as well as those struggling with trauma, domestic violence, parental coaching, anger, anxiety , dual diagnoses, and stress management.
I love to work with passionate people, whether it manifests in anger or intensity, and help to redirect that energy into positive motivation. I place special attention on working with stress, anger management, fertility issues and with substance use disorders. My specialization in recovery work from addictions came from experience working in both inpatient settings and outpatient counseling. Recovery work taught me to stabilize crisis situations and create momentum when clients feel stuck.

Have you found yourself asking any of the following questions to friends or family members about your child: "I don't know what's up with them." "Did I do something wrong?" "They won't talk to me like they used to." Despite your best efforts, it seems like your child is just stuck in a hard place. As a parent, it can be intimidating to reach out and find a counselor for your child, because you want what is best for them. You're looking for someone that will connect with them, and walk with them through any stress, anxiety , and transitions they are experiencing.

I believe that through processing memorable events, trauma, shame, isolation, addiction, and depression/ anxiety , personal growth can be achieved.
“Not all who wander are lost” is a quote I have loved while walking through my own life’s uncertainty. When you find yourself faced with an unclear path, talking with a therapist offers comfort, clarity, connection, and guidance. Counseling involves exploring yourself in a safe space that includes your perceptions and behaviors, and anything else relevant to the healing process. We can all thrive when provided the appropriate environment, so my primary goal is providing the type of safe space that works best for you.

At times, we can find ourselves dealing with unresolved feelings of anxiety , fear, self-doubt, shame, and trauma. However we can still blossom. The therapeutic process goes beyond the individual. It must be addressed within the individual and their environment, and should include their cultural experiences, practices, and traditions, as well as their spirituality; this approach provides collective healing. I practice a holistic approach to providing therapeutic care. I integrate components of the mind, body, and spirit within therapeutic modalities to address the needs of each individual or family.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
