Life can be difficult and hard to navigate, but I believe that we all have the strength and resilience to grow, change, and live a more fulfilling life. As a therapist, I believe that the self- work you do will echo throughout every part of your life. I meet people where they are and walk alongside them to where they want to be. It is important for me to create a space for you to feel comfortable, and open. My goals are to help you reach your goals in a supportive, empathic and compassionate space where you feel safe.

Are you feeling like something is missing in your life? Do you wish you could have your life back the way it used to be? Or maybe it has never been what you would like it to be. It could be related to relationships, work, family, or even nothing that you can identify at all. Ignoring the problem is not the answer even though it seems easier. You may want a "quick fix" but there is no replacement for really working through the issues in our lives and getting to a better place. Basically...how you got where you are and where to go from here. It is a big step. That's the kind of "fix" that lasts a lifetime.

Whether you're struggling with a difficult situation, or would like to invest in improving a relationship, taking the first steps to find a counselor can be daunting. We all have struggles and need help from time to time. It's important to find a competent counselor that you can trust. I consider it a privilege to be a counselor, to be invited into my client's stories, and to walk along-side them in the midst of the challenges they are facing.

I believe that there are many reasons that a person may seek out counseling at some period in their lives. I value that your experiences and concerns are unique to you and therefore, understand the importance of listening to your individual story. With an individualistic approach, I believe that we can work collaboratively for you to understand your situation with greater self-awareness and identify your own personal strengths which will empower you to cope with circumstances more effectively.

Update:(Current availability for Clinical Supervision) You are the expert on you. I am here to walk beside you as we increase your awareness, understanding, and insight of what has happened to you and the ways past traumatic experiences are currently affecting your life. Your brain adapted so that you could survive. Your current struggles may be from adaptations that no longer serve you. Together, we will develop this insight and engage in life changing, trauma informed, work. It is important that we, both, determine a good and ethical fit in our roles as client and therapist.

Stuff happens that affects our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I believe your mind works fine. But a facet of your mind is causing you to respond or feel in ways that make life more difficult than it should be. This ongoing emotional distress or pain is not helping you be more effective in your life. I will help you address that 'facet of mind' to unplug the emotional pain and irrational thinking, so that your thoughts and energy are moving you towards what is valuable in your life.

I understand that the choice of a therapist is an important one. The trust that is built between the client and the therapist is important in determining how helpful therapy can be. I work hard to create a supportive therapeutic environment. I believe in providing a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere and encourage people to talk at a pace that is comfortable for them. I believe that an individual has the ability to learn to do things differently and feel better. I use techniques associated with the widely recognized cognitive behavioral theory as well as those from family system's theory.

Your story is as unique as you are, and there is no one-size fits all approach to therapy. For that reason, I believe it is important to build a strong therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable sharing your story with me. In doing so, we can work together to develop strategies that will allow you to address the root causes of your difficulties, manage strong negative emotions, and build meaningful social connections with others.

Asking for help can feel very intimidating especially when it comes to your mental health. My clinical focus centers around helping individuals heal and process what they are going through and what they have been through. Counseling is a safe, nonjudgemental space to start your mental health healing process.

As a mental health clinician, I work with clients on depression, anxiety, ADHD, anger management, grief, separation, parenting skills, communication, and family conflict. These clients come to therapy to improve their quality of life, and gain insight on how their thoughts, mood, and actions impact their overall goals. Therapy is a collaborative process involving both the client and clinician to establish a working relationship that is built on trust, compassion, and empowerment. You are the expert on yourself, and I am your guide through the process. Success comes from both of us working together as a team.

Do you ever have something you want to say but restrain yourself from doing so out of fear of others' reactions? The truth is what we tell ourselves others think can be a barrier when building an ideal lifestyle. A simple task such as a walk or puzzle quiets negative thoughts and allows you to open up to get the most out of your session. If you are experiencing decreased self-esteem, depression, anxiety, or relationship troubles, or eating concerns feel free to reach out by phone or email!
