We all feel stuck in life, but sometimes we can really struggle trying to get back on our feet. Our difficulties can be compounded by anxiety, depression, trauma exposure, or unresolved wounds from earlier in life, leaving us wondering what's wrong with us and why it's taking so long to feel better. This can especially be true for those of us who feel unsupported by family members we've spent our who life trying to please. As if that weren't enough, these struggles can be amplified for people accustomed to self-reliance.
As a law enforcement officer and now a clinician, I've spent my life working with people in difficult situations, validating their experiences, and helping people grow beyond what they may have thought they were capable of doing. I help people focus on the things within their control, to help build their confidence and navigate issues they may be avoiding.
I provide client-centered therapy and genuinely care about the people I work with. I come alongside clients and help them resolve the issues most important to them, so they can function as healthier versions of themselves in life. If you're currently stuck in a rut and can't gain tracking, give me a call.

I work with people experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, and those struggling to maintain relationships with people they might not get along with (but wish they did). I use a systematic approach to evaluate the many roles clients fill, and work multi-dimensionally to resolve complicated life issues that may (or may not) be connected.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Brainspotting to address trauma. We'll explore your 'internal negative self-critic' (we all have one) and help you evaluate yourself and circumstances objectively, without discounting the strengths you bring to the table. I create a comfortable environment to help people feel at ease and to facilitate the growth that often comes through therapy.
