My ideal client is ready for some change. My ideal client is open to ideas and willing to give input. I love working with (newly coupled), pre-marital couples and with the empty-nesting couples...and everything in between. I'm also drawn to those who just want to keep a good check on their relationship as it goes. As well, I work with couples experiencing some bumps in their journey. I like to see people willing to try something new as Brainspotting is really taking off. I have also found that I am a good match with middle-aged people, especially those who are not 100% sold on therapy yet.

I am dedicated to helping clients improve their mental health through an empathetic, non-judgmental counseling relationship. Understanding the ‘whys’ of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can give insight and a greater sense of control over our lives. I encourage clients to see the power of their own choices and perspective, to recognize their ability to grow, and to celebrate small but significant change. Therapy sessions are a safe, respectful environment for collaborating on counseling goals. I work with all client populations; further, I am passionate about working with teens and adolescents, as well as their parents.

I've always had an interest in working alongside individuals as they navigate their mental health journey. I find that individuals connect best with their varying emotions when they fully examine the meaning behind them and uncover the root cause of their struggles. As a therapist, I view my role as a fellow passenger during the therapeutic process. I believe in sitting with my client as they unpack their emotions, allowing us to examine and process them together. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages with their varying emotional challenges, including children and families.

We can often feel controlled by our emotions, struggling to think clearly, and simply reacting, rather than directing our own life path. It can feel like a tornado of thoughts quickly swirling, leaving us feeling tense and discouraged that life could look any different. We usually just want everything to slow down and feel more at peace. The goal is to provide you with the tools for this to happen so you can move forward with confidence to live a more positive and balanced life.

Counseling can be intimidating, but I want to foster a safe, compassionate, and empathetic place where you can talk about the things you don’t know how to talk about. As a therapist, I seek to create a space for your true self to shine through as we work together to confront the challenges, insecurities, and past traumas you carry, and to ultimately find healing. At this stage as you consider therapy and seek to find the right fit, I want to encourage you by simply saying that you are enough. You do not have to be more than who you are. And who you are is worthy of love, of care, and of mental and emotional health.

I utilized and trained in several modalities used for trauma including Internal Family Systems (level 1), EMDR, and DBT.
Trauma impacts us in ways we can’t imagine. It affects human development and rewires our brain. I remember seeing the impact trauma from childhood had for my adult clients. I remember seeing elementary school children and the impact trauma has on their ability to develop healthy relationships. Processing trauma isn’t something you need to do alone. I can still remember meeting with a teen girl and seeing her relief after processing her trauma and expressing how much better she felt. Working through trauma allows my clients to feel relief and feel a decrease in their daily triggers.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapists

What is Internal Family Systems therapy?

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a type of talk therapy that focuses on sub-personalities, or “families,” within a person, which may be made up of wounded parts and unpleasant emotions like anger and shame. These sub-personalities can come into conflict with each other and with an individual’s core Self, leaving the person feeling detached from positive traits such as the “8 C’s” of confidence, calmness, creativity, clarity, curiosity, courage, compassion, and connectedness. By healing a patient’s wounded parts, a therapist aims to restore balance and bring on positive change.

How does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

An IFS therapist will work with a patient to identify their particular sub-personalities, recognize the emotions powering them, and release them. By doing so, the patient should become more able to address any underlying problems their sub-personalities may have been trying to protect them from. Ultimately, a patient discovers ways to manage internal and external conflicts on their own, through techniques such as relaxation exercises, journaling, and making charts depicting the relationships between their core Self and their distinct parts.

Does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

IFS therapy has been shown to help people address conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic, fears and phobias, trauma, and substance use disorders. Some research has also found that it can help individuals deal with symptoms of physical health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, such as pain, everyday functioning, depressive feelings, and low self-compassion. There are some conditions for which IFS treatment, specifically discussions of one’s “parts,” may be less appropriate, such as schizophrenia or other states that involve psychosis or paranoia.

How long does Internal Family Systems therapy take?

As with most forms of talk therapy, there is no set duration or end point for IFS therapy. After becoming comfortable with a therapist and the core concepts of IFS, some patients quickly make progress. While experiences vary, most will find that it is a relatively longer-term therapy, involving months and sometimes years of sessions.
