|| Check out my virtual trauma groups! || Do you feel like your world is unraveling? Life often throws obstacles in our paths blocking our way, and sometimes we feel trapped... stuck and unable to move forward. Our minds and bodies may no longer feel like home. We may feel frustrated, lost, and utterly alone. Our relationships may feel broken beyond repair. And we may even feel like we might be "crazy." >>> Life is too short to be spent miserable in your relationships, suffocated by your traumas, fearful for your sanity, or hustling for your own self-worth. <<<

Life is too short to spend so much time letting trauma control us and not living our truest self. I believe therapy can help you work through emotional pain, find purpose, develop better relationships with yourself and others, and make important life changes.

*No openings available right now* There is great strength in allowing someone to hold hope for you until you can discover it for yourself. My favorite part of therapy is helping people find their own light, strength, and resiliency. People already have all the answers they need inside of them. My role is to help them find the answers for themselves. I use a combination of evidence-based approaches to help people examine and modify unbalanced thinking patterns, develop self-awareness and insight, and strengthen their relationships. I respect cultural differences and incorporate them into treatment.

Entering into counseling is the beginning of discovery and change. It's an important decision that deserves careful consideration. I've observed that most people want freedom from suffering and to live authentic, satisfying lives. Yet they may feel overwhelmed by the challenges of contemporary society while coping with life transitions, grief, relationships, self-esteem and identity issues, trauma, and spiritual crises. Where does one begin? A therapist can be an important guide in navigating the inner world of emotions while also building more effective skills for living in a dynamic, ever-shifting world.

What I love most about being a therapist is seeing how positive changes in one person have a ripple effect in their family and community. We are truly all connected. I believe my non-threatening down -to- earth support, optimism, and problem-solving skills are my greatest therapy strengths. I would love the opportunity to listen to you and help you uncover the strengths you need to live life to the fullest.

In almost 20 years of clinical experience, I have had the opportunity to work with people in crisis, as well as those struggling with depression, anxiety, family/relationship issues, behavioral issues, self-harm, and/or low self-esteem. I am comfortable working with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as families and couples. Through a solution-focused, supportive environment, I can assist clients in determining solutions for their problems. I utilize a combination of mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy techniques, and motivational interviewing.

***NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** My job as a therapist is to help when you feel overwhelmed, confused, or lost. This process frequently requires working through the impact of past experiences and/or thought patterns which keep you stuck. Therapy is a process of self-exploration and increasing self-awareness to realize the power you have to make changes in your life. My hope is that with our work together you find insight, confidence, and a more positive way of looking at your world.

I am not currently accepting new clients. You might be wondering if you can find someone who “gets you,” someone you can trust. I am committed to providing you with a safe, confidential relationship that allows you to reach your goals at your own pace. You can expect our work together to help you deepen self awareness and acceptance, increase compassion for yourself and others, and renegotiate old patterns that no longer serve you,

Many humans suffer from emotional distress and psychological symptoms due to aversive life events. Often times, negative experiences can become “stuck” in our brains impacting how we perceive ourselves, others, or the world. Our beliefs about ourselves can become skewed and negative. As a trauma-trained therapist, I can help you work through these past events and shift these beliefs in order to be able to live the life YOU want to live.

The thought of meeting with a therapist can be intimidating, and I pride myself in my clients describing me as being very down to earth and easy to talk with. Most individuals who have never pursued therapy before are pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoy this relationship. I work with Willis (Great Pyrenees/Great Dane) who is an AKC Canine Good Citizen and registered Therapy Dog through Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He is available to be present during appointments if desired.

Sometimes we lose our way in life or we are inhibited by past trauma/grief that can leave us overwhelmed and confused. I believe that you can't always choose your circumstances in life, but you can choose to overcome them. I also believe that you have the power to manage/control your thoughts and feelings instead of allowing them to control you. My goal is to help you work through those past or current issues, overcome those difficult circumstances in life, and to help you gain control over your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to help enhance your well-being.

It takes great courage to recognize when things aren’t working and seek help. Do you feel like you’re stuck, and try as you might, find yourself repeating the same patterns? Have you been struggling with relationship problems? Are you feeling that despite your best efforts you’re not enough? Maybe you can’t name the source of unrest, hopelessness and pain but know that something needs to change? You’re not alone, there is another way and I’m here to help.

My philosophy towards therapy and, being a therapist,can be put this way.You can create positive change in your life. You can overcome difficult and even seemingly overwhelming obstacles. The first step is to believe that you are worthy of a better life no matter what the present situation tells you. The next step is to accept that, 'Life is a Journey'. I think there is incredible wisdom and hope in those words; a journey is on-going, and, life gives you opportunities to change as you choose! Sometimes we just need a little help figuring out how to start.

"I am a firm believer in finding balance between feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Sometimes what we are dealing with is simply present day stress, needing a safe environment to process and get feedback. Other times events from our past dictate our reactions to today's experiences. This leads to giving our power away and continuing to suffer. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as other approaches when indicated, always focusing on the client's goals. I am focused on respectful approaches to teaching tools that allow each client's efforts to result in positive impacts throughout their lives."

It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I hold an Anger Management Certification. I also enjoy working with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially. This includes working with individuals on the high functioning end of the Autism scale.

What type of Normal mental health professional is right for me?
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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Normal?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
