"Holler if you hear me." Rap legend, Tupac Shakur, pled for the world to signal back to him that his thoughts, feelings and experiences were being heard. To verify that he was not crazy or out of control. So many of us have been silenced, taught to bury our truths and to hide from ourselves. Such practices develop mental, emotional and physical illnesses that then impact generations to come. People need a safe place to release, to connect and to explore the depths of which they were taught not to venture. No matter the age or magnitude of issues, it is vital for you to speak your mind and for empathy to be returned.

I'm here to support, encourage, walk with, and extend love to all my beautiful souls who have battled with indecisiveness about making decisions, co-dependency in relationships (Where we depend on others to meet our emotional needs, feel secure, and worthy), negative self-talk, lack boundaries, get stuck in cycles of over-thinking, commit to being loyal at the cost to self, and have a constant relationship with insecurity and low self-esteem. I want to help you learn to trust yourself, love yourself/accept yourself, honor your inner voice, respect and exert your voice, value your time, commit to the importance of meeting your needs.

I believe instilling hope should be one of the top focuses of therapy. As long as you have hope, together we can focus on your strengths to achieve your goals. We are all human and experience different emotional changes throughout our lifetimes. Sometimes it is difficult to address these issues with family or friends; it may be easier to have an impartial, unbiased person with whom to talk through these issues. Together we can develop goals and tackle them one by one, at a pace that is comfortable and appropriate.

Even when life is seemingly going well, our thoughts and feelings can make our days and nights a struggle. Living with mental illness or going through a challenging time can be like there is an ever-looming cloud blocking us from feeling the sun. It is my belief that therapy can help us see and feel the light again. Depression, anxiety, ADHD, behavioral or personality issues, and abuse & trauma can make us feel like we’re alone and without hope. Therapy can be a place where you don’t have to go through life’s struggles alone and get to learn coping strategies and solutions.

Lately have you looked in the mirror and not recognized the person staring back? Perhaps, found yourself doing things that are out of character like yelling at your child(ren), significant other, or friends/other loved ones, or doing hurtful things to yourself or others and yet you don’t understand why. You tell yourself: (1) I am fine -after taking/responding to that 911/emergency call; (2) Yes, what I saw while deployed was horrible, but that is the nature of what we do and I am home now so everything is ok; or (3) Surely that loss or experience 10 years ago has no effect on me now, it’s in the past..... And yet here you are

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
