My primary areas of focus are anxiety, depression, anger management, marital and relationship problems, and parenting concerns.
We're not always prepared for the challenges that come our way. Sometimes we encounter a problem we can't figure out on our own. It helps to have someone else to lean on to get us through a difficult period. My primary job as a counselor is to give encouragement, impart a sense of hope, and help restore balance in the lives of my clients. For some clients it's a rare experience to be truly heard, understood, and empathized with. I'll provide a warm, non-judgmental environment that allows you to tell your story.

I specialize in Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Stress Management, Self-Esteem, Work and Career Issues, Infertility and Parenting Support.
I am passionate about helping individuals find their inner strength and voice. I started my own practice, Paris Counseling, after realizing my desire for an open-minded, non-judgmental and safe atmosphere where I can bring compassion, honesty, and humor to therapy. If you are looking for an uptight, stuffy therapist, this probably is not your stop. With my own company, I can ensure all my fellow therapists and employees share my vision. I use a solution-focused approach and work collaboratively with my clients, their support systems, and any other means of assistance, to ensure they receive optimum care.

Sometimes in life things happen that we don't feel we can solve on our own. Things can build up over time and take a toll on us emotionally and physically. Therapy is a place where you can make sense of things and heal. We can develop a plan specific to your individual needs using evidence based therapy techniques like Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reproccessing (EMDR). Both these therapies are extremely effective for treating anxiety, depression, and trauma related symptoms and distress.

The foundations to a person's mind are based on the principals both instilled into and gathered from experiences as a child. As children grow older, they soon start interpreting this information to decide for themselves which of their actions are right and wrong. What draws me to study Psychology is this mental processing, and how it affects a person's current and future disposition. As a reliable and hard-working individual, I believe I can make a worthy contribution in helping to assist you with your counseling needs.

Presence and accompaniment matter. We can more easily connect to our true self and touch emotional distress in the presence of another's settled nervous system. Neurobiology and mindfulness science has proven that the human brain can be distraught while simultaneously observing the self with compassion. The ability to be both experiencing and holding the experience is the key to maintaining calm when facing challenges. Whether you feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxiety, anger, depression, or find yourself reacting in ways that leave you feeling alone and hurt, we can come to be with all of it with gentle awareness and respect.

Life can be difficult. At times, we are confronted with painful experiences we would rather avoid. And because we don't deal with the discomfort those situations bring, we keep ourselves stuck - still experiencing and enacting the pain we are trying to avoid. I see psychotherapy as a liberating journey through which we are able to transcend the emotional discomfort painful occurrences bring with them, while learning to relate to our life stories in such a way that they no longer keep us hostage. Through this process, psychological and spiritual growth occurs. Let me walk with you.

Seeking therapy is a hopeful and courageous act. While suffering is a uniquely individual experience, making the transition to a healthy and balanced life is an opportunity to discover a true and more authentic self. My approach to psychotherapy is grounded in a deep respect for the strength and resilience of the human spirit. If you are a young person struggling at home or at school or a couple looking for clarity, resolution and healing or someone that feels like they just don't fit in, you do not have to continue alone.

Our goal has always been to help clients find and maintain emotional balance. Our clients are interested in and intrigued by the brain. They are ready to address brain issues which are foundational for psychological issues. Our clients may want to soar in their respective fields, or they may want to stop performing compulsive rituals. Our clients may be experiencing flashbacks, or they may have difficulty in school. They may desire better relationships, better memories, better sleep, better moods. They may be 6 or 86. Most certainly, they want therapy to be effective and to be an active participant in the process.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
