Life can often involve a series of setbacks, transitions, difficulties, and challenges that can cause us to feel stuck or lost. My aim is to help clients identify not only what they wish to change or problems they hope to address but also build self-acceptance and self-compassion.

I employ many different therapeutic techniques such as client centered, mindfulness , cognitive-behavioral, ACT, etc.
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.

Therapy is a process of self-exploration and increasing self-awareness to realize the power you have to make changes in your life.

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.

Before I was a therapist, I was an educator. For one course, my job was to teach first responders how to get important information from potentially traumatized witnesses/victims. I often wondered what I would do if I were permitted to see the crisis through. I believe it's my combination of a solid background in communication-which includes relationships, gender-speak, assertiveness and self-talk-and my education in Clinical Psychology and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor certification that provide for a well-balanced approach to individual counseling.

I'm not currently taking new clients. My hope is that while in therapy with me, you will experience personal growth that provides you with a feeling of peace and a release from pain. Our work together could point you in the direction of a sustained sense of balance, happiness, and wholeness. I typically use a blend of cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and yoga therapies to work toward finding a lasting sense of well-being.

|| 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. <<<

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.

Do you feel stress or anxiety? Does your life feel out of balance? Although you are managing, you might feel like it takes more effort to do what came easily before. Perhaps you feel stuck, and need some guidance and support to get back on track, and moving toward achieving your goals and dreams. Imagine having a comfortable, supportive place where you can be yourself and begin working to change the things preventing you from moving forward and thriving. When working with individuals, I help them identify, explore, and integrate creative and customized solutions to overcome their fears, break down barriers, and get "unstuck."

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.

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."
