These past few years have changed what we feel as normal, and for many, there are no easy answers to what the normal life looks like now. When we experience changing relationships with friends, family, and loved ones, we often feel overwhelmed in the face of those challenges. My counseling approach focuses on helping you better understand you, your life, to find clarity and purpose. I see couples , families, and individuals with a keen interest in teenagers and those experiencing transitions in their life. I am accepting and welcoming of different spiritual views, gender, gender expression, sexualities, etc..

"Wellness is attainable and I believe that it starts in the mind by learning how to take on difficulties in a healthier way.

Sometimes you need a un-biased opinion or just a listening ear to assist in the process. Your pursuit for counseling shows strength not weakness. With work, support, and commitment your goals can be reached".

Hope is better when it's combined with a plan. If you are having too many fights and not enough resolution, I can help you. I help couples figure out how to resolve stuff once and for all. Even when you're successful in most areas of life, It's hard to be happy when problems are chronically unresolved. It's even worse when the past hangs over the relationship, or you feel like room-mates. If your relationship problems are weighing down your otherwise great life, then counseling can make a big difference.

My MAIN specialty is providing effective marriage (and couples ) counseling by way of the Gottman Method.
At this stage in my career, ideal clients would be those interested in working with me via the videotherapy platform outside of insurance. I have decided to transition to teletherapy for a variety of reasons, and I have found that it is a highly effective way to work with clients. It gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of when we can meet...days, evenings, weekends. $50 for a 45 minute session. My goal is to provide highly affordable, high quality mental health therapy to those I work with. I have a youthful and energetic personality. I am highly interactive during sessions.

I’ve seen couples salvage their marriages, individuals find healthy releases for their anger and/or figure out how to cope with their anxiety and depression.
Anger, anxiety, depression, and relationship problems can be very challenging. When we blow-up, it’s usually on the people we care the most about. When our relationships aren’t good, it can impact nearly everything we do. When anxiety or depression becomes too much, you can feel as though you are lost or constantly overwhelmed. I specialize in helping people who are overcome by anger, struggling with their relationships, drowning in depression, and/or frozen by anxiety. People who reach out to me for support realize they're not living the life they want. They know they’re capable of more and want to fix their situation.

What type of Springfield 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Springfield?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
