Counseling is about creating a safe environment for a client, both an actual comfortable "real space" and a place of trust in our hearts and heads. This needs to be a non-judgmental space where a person from any walk of life can feel at home and welcomed. The process is about compassionate listening, collaboration, and creating a place where healthy growth can happen over time. Most of my training focuses in on the use of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based therapy techniques. After completing my graduate training at Tulane University, I received advanced training in trauma by Dr. Aaron Beck.

I specialize in working with individuals who are seeking change in their life. Making changes, whether in the way we think or the way we behave, can be a very challenging, difficult, and uncomfortable transition. However, it is in meeting these challenges, and making these changes, that growth and empowerment occurs. My strength is in working with individuals who are dealing with chronic childhood abuse or neglect, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Equally, my other areas of interest include addictions, (especially with drugs and alcohol), health and wellness, mindfulness meditation skills training, and life coaching.

Hi. Therapy isn't easy work but it's achievable if you'd like to develop healthier patterns for living. If you are struggling with family, co-workers, your spouse, we may be able to enhance your skills so you can wear your smile again. Are you saddened too much of the time? Angered by those you love? Retaliating unacceptably? Feeling undervalued while believing you do the best you can? Feeling lost and vulnerable in a hectic world? We may be able to identify behaviors, feelings which identify your "core," bringing them to the surface in a way which is comfortable.

I believe that connections and relationships play incredibly important roles in our lives and that everyone deserves a safe space to discuss and process the unique challenges their relationships may be facing. I work from a sex positive, kink affirming, and queer friendly perspective to help people navigate and explore their relationships regardless of how traditional or non-traditional they may be.

With 9 years of experience working with all ages, I specialize in anxiety, depression, codependency, trauma, divorce, perfectionism, relationship issues, self-esteem, aging, women’s issues and life transitions. I particularly enjoy individuals who are open-minded, motivated, and willing to do the work while trusting the therapeutic process. It is so important to be willing to try new things by venturing out of your comfort zone during our time together. By not having to rely strictly on medication to mask your issues, therapy teaches you to cope with life’s struggles, and thus change your fearful view of the world.

Life can be so busy that we overlook the simple things in life that truly make us happy. It is often complicated by problems associated with anxiety, depression, codependency, addiction and more. If you find yourself going through the same problems over and over on a daily basis, the counseling process may benefit you.

An ideal client would be motivated, willing to self disclose and devoid of embellishment or denial. Their needs would be to heal with the understanding that therapy is a process and optimum results occur when a client is proactive in his or her recovery. Clients should be aware that therapy is their platform to be seen and heard. With 40 years of experience, I promise my clients that I have seen and heard it all! I believe that each individual is creative and unique and that there is no "one" way to be happy or live life. I will work with you to increase your understanding of how thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected.

I understand that women experience a wide range of concerns, from self-esteem and body image issues to relationship challenges, work-life balance, and the impact of societal pressures. I am here to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore these issues together. In my practice, I take an integrative and holistic approach to women's mental health. I believe that our mental and emotional well-being is interconnected with our physical health, relationships, spirituality and overall life satisfaction.

I take the "come as you are" attitude when it comes to therapy. Utilizing a Rogerian approach, I try to meet every client where they are in life. If you're looking for a therapist who is client-centered, honest and diligent then look no further. I also place a special emphasis on equity and social justice within my practice. It's important that my clients don't internalize systemic failures as personal failings.

Hello! I am deeply passionate about helping people heal from trauma, addiction (porn addiction, sex addiction, sexual shame and trauma), financial/work disorders, infidelity, abuse/neglect, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, and depression. I believe that understanding and processing the roots of your trauma, which led to unhealthy and unwanted patterns, allows for holistic healing. This involves healing in four core areas: emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational. My hope is to help you reconnect with your heart, God, and with those whom you love the most.

When you're feeling overwhelmed and tired from endless worrying or obsessive thought cycles, you find yourself avoiding more, overthinking more, and trying to prevent or predict anything that can go wrong. People tell you to "just relax" or that "there's nothing to worry about", but if it were that easy, you would have already done that. You begin to feel depressed, miserable, and stuck. It seems like you’ve tried everything, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long.
