Life is full of plot twists. It can be helpful to talk to someone outside of your family or friends to get a fresh perspective, new ideas, and objective feedback. Because no one has the same experiences, everyone has unique needs and challenges. Each person also has strengths and survival skills that have allowed him or her to get to this moment. Most people can't see their strengths and skills because they overlook, underestimate, or down play them.

These introduction statements are usually pretty cheesy and kinda dumb. So, I'll cut to the chase. I am a therapist here in Peoria. I see teenagers and adults and utilize a type of therapy called Internal Family Systems with most of my patients. This is considered "parts" work (think "Inside Out."). I also am a member of the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation and am trained to utilize Exposure and Response Prevention. I'm also not just a therapist, I'm also a client! (I, too, have OCD). Lastly, I utilize Sandplay therapy, a nonverbal cousin to art therapy which can be healing for those with trauma.

Through this, I am able to match clients with their identified goals and actualize their ideal self to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. Every client has the capability to achieve their goals, and I provide the framework to assist them in reaching these goals.

Change is possible and I believe you have the ability to create positive changes that will allow healing throughout your journey in life. Thoughts, emotions, and perceptions shape the way we interact with others, and in turn, how others interact with us. My approach is to create a safe, non-shaming, compassionate therapeutic environment coupled with a strong emphasis on collaboration. As an experienced and dedicated therapist for over 20 years, my goal is for you to learn tools and effective strategies to reach your mutually agreed upon goals in therapy.

You don't have to be in a crisis to participate in therapy. Life can be complicated and overwhelming. Therapy can be a useful tool to help you safely explore, let go and free yourself of those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that keep you stuck or cause you stress or discomfort. Processing these distressing experiences with a therapist can be very beneficial, healing, and transformative. Let's work together to release those limiting expectations, modify those fixed beliefs, and increase your ability to cope and function. Are you ready to become the best version of yourself and change your life for the better?

Everyone experiences pain in life and my goal is to keep the pain from becoming a person's identity. Our daily experiences are both joyful and painful. How we cope with these experience, either through healthy or unhealthy coping skills, will determine our new thought processes. These thought processes lead to self beliefs. I enjoy joining people in this moment of their lives and helping them redefine coping skills to rid themselves of related negative self beliefs.

I strive to touch the lives of the people I serve in a way that leaves them feeling valued, respected, and better able to face their personal challenges and struggles. I work from a strength based perspective. This simply means I encourage people to reconnect with their inner strengths and passions learning to engage strengths and values more effectively. Basically, it is often a matter of identifying what is already working for an individual or family and doing more of it. Through our strengths, we have the best potential to overcome our challenges.

Connection is why we are here. Too often we focus on what we don't have, what we don't want, and how we don't measure up. This leaves us feeling depressed, disconnected, and isolated. I want to help you ask and answer a different set of questions. What do you already have? What do you really want? What are you passionate about? How are you already good enough?

Deciding to start therapy is a brave, difficult decision! You may find you are in a situation where you feel like you are stuck, have no where to turn, or are navigating some of the most difficult times of your life. I find that people are looking to be heard, to feel safe, and to find support. Having the experience of being listened to, of being validated, and being supported can be the beginning of the process of healing. I work to create a warm, safe, and open therapeutic space for you to bring any emotion you may be feeling. Together, we can navigate the challenges you are facing and work towards your path to healing.

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.
