During the journey of life, we will experience many “hills and valleys,” joys and sorrows, hurts and healings. At times, it can be emotionally difficult to navigate through some of life's most challenging journeys. During these moments, you can be left feeling alone, hopeless, anxious and wondering "what do I do next, how do I overcome this, does anyone care?” When experiencing these types of thoughts and emotions, it can be beneficial to find a comforting and competent therapist to help you acquire and develop the cognitive and behavioral coping skills that promote hope, healing and positivity that allow for a harmonious life.

Jennifer Betts said, "While some climb mountains, others are carrying them." You are struggling, in pain, suffering & yet don't feel like you can find a way out or forward. Perhaps you've lost someone or something that was important to you. Maybe the weight of traumas, physical or emotional wounds, betrayals, or feelings of inadequacy & worthlessness are pulling you under despite all your efforts to be strong & hold on. You may not even be able to pinpoint what exactly you are feeling or why because everything is so jumbled and intertwined that sorting it out feels like a Herculean task. And, sometimes, life is just really hard.

Searching for the right therapist can be daunting. The prospect of starting therapy can be scary. It can be especially frustrating to try many different things to feel better, yet never finding a sense of long- term relief. Sometimes we all need extra support to start this healing journey– I know this from a deeply personal level. I have found that lasting change must involve our whole self- body, mind, and spirit. I use mindfulness skills to help bring awareness to how thoughts, feelings and sensations impact our nervous system and sense of well-being and to help you heal those places where you feel stuck and depleted.

Navigating our world has become increasingly difficult over recent years and our young people are met with obstacles more challenging than ever before. When our brains are built in unique ways relationships in the home, school, and with our peers and family is even more challenging. I have an extensive history working with families and children of all ages 10-18 years old. Children and teens with special and unique needs such as Autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, childhood grief and loss, and emotional regulation and anxiety are my specialty.

If you have found my page, you or someone you know are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger or some other stressor. Therapy is useful as it will help you develop new ways to manage these issues especially in the way you think about them. Helping people learn about themselves and grow is my passion. Discarding old patterns of behavior/thinking and developing new one's will be the primary goal while working together. I find this to be very exciting and somewhat challenging but definitely worth all the effort in the end.

An emotion lasts for ninety seconds. I have aided individuals and families with owning and claiming their narratives for over 10 years. Having to reverse or defend an opinion that others have placed on you impedes our daily functioning, work life, schooling, family dynamics, and social life. In my practice I want to give you motivation and tools to maximize your life. In order to navigate this process we will discuss how you can practice mindfulness to customize your healing journey. No one should be alone as they go through constructing their life’s narrative. I would like to help you begin your mental health journey.
