Let’s face it, sometimes, existing can be exhausting & I recognize that asking for help can feel scary or overwhelming. I strive to make starting therapy, & the therapeutic process, as comfortable & stress free as possible. I believe that no one knows you better than you know yourself & that we often harbor the solutions to many of our own questions. Sometimes it just takes another pair of eyes to help you see it through. I like to use a collaborative approach, which puts my clients in the driver’s seat. This gives clients the power to establish clear goals, set the pace, & explore issues on their terms while I help navigate.

My counseling approach reflects academic training, personal experience as an active duty military spouse and mother - all these experiences shaped my outlook and foundational beliefs. I believe we are unique and complex with a variety of needs, but the baseline is rooted in human interaction comprised of caring, respect, acceptance, support, and understanding. We all possess the capacity for change from within. However, we sometimes need an external catalyst that a counselor may provide utilizing a safe and therapeutic environment comprised of genuineness and empathy.

Your inner critic says things like "Why can't you just stop doing this to yourself? You know this is all your fault." It also slides in with comments like "Why even bother....you're never going to be good enough anyway." and "Look at yourself. Why would anyone want to be with someone like you?" Sometimes you want to scream, and other times you just want to cry. Often, you find yourself missing out on friendships and social events because they don't fit in with your latest eating plan, or you're too down on yourself to be around anyone else. You find yourself feeling angry, lonely, and, sometimes, scared. It's not who you want to be.

Life can be rough sometimes. There are many stressors out there. You deserve to carve out time for yourself, to focus on you. It is very important to we not lose sight of ourselves, and our needs. Taking time for ourselves, to express our feelings, thoughts, and struggles, can help us cope, and make more sense of ourselves, in our families and in our world.

If only there was an "off button" for that part of us that says we have to be perfect all the time. That voice that says we can't ever relax and take time for ourselves, because there's always something else we should be doing. It's a lot of pressure to live under, and it's no wonder that you are starting to feel resentful, anxious, and very far away from the version of yourself you'd like to be. Perhaps you find yourself snapping at your kids, feeling your heartbeat get a little too fast, crying more often than you'd like, or flat out panicking at the way life has turned out. Wouldn't it be great if that off button was real?

Being strong and determined is great - um, except that it often involves falling apart behind closed doors. Not many people know that as awesome as you are, you often feel panicked, overwhelmed, angry, or irritable. You wish you could relax, but it feels like there's just not enough time for yourself. You worry about making the wrong decisions, and what everyone else thinks of you. You don't want to let anyone down, but you're starting to SHUT down. You're not finding answers (isn't there, like, a handbook for this stuff?!) Meanwhile, you just can't seem to turn off that little voice inside that says you have to be perfect.

Growing up without the right emotional support or with abuse can leave adults feeling a lack of sense of self..."Who am I? Am I allowed to feel this way?" This creates difficulties with decision-making and relationships, and the overall quality of life is unsatisfying. You may look “well put together” but inside you feel an empty numbness. The impact from yesterday can cause today to feel like a burden and decreases one's ability to thrive. Most times only symptoms of depression and anxiety are treated which only further avoids the core issue. We can safely address the core issues in therapy helping you gain BETTER WELLNESS.

Many of us experience a disconnection from our self-consciousness due earlier traumas during that period. Some of those experiences include: stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, childhood wounds, neglect, abuse, and other of life's challenges. What if I told you could work through that pain and connect to your highest self. A more meaningful and positive self-image. The highest self is connected to intuition, truth, calmness, wisdom, and compassionate. Finding our highest self can be challenging however achievable. My treatment of modalities are embedded in traditional psychology training and interconnected with holistic healing.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
