If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

Life is unpredictable. Everyone struggles at some point in life. Sometimes the accompanying suffering tears at the very fabric of our understanding of ourselves and how we fit in the world. Life no longer makes sense. Life is not the way you thought it would be or should be. Unbidden desires, anxieties or depression come in to interfere with your ability to live the life you want. Others in your life behave in ways that disrupt your peace of mind and ability to live a meaningful life. Issues you thought you had dealt with long ago resurface in the present.

“What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just be normal?” That’s what you’ve thought to yourself countless times. The answer? It’s not you, it’s trauma. Trauma wreaks havoc on our lives, easily causing both depression and anxiety. It doesn’t stop there. It also sets us up to experience major difficulties with functioning in our personal and professional lives. It’s time for you to heal. If you’re ready to learn how to reduce your symptoms and explore the impact of trauma in your current relationships and on your well-being, then you’re in the right place.

Daily anxiety, panic attacks, flashbacks, trauma, nightmares, and/or PTSD - living with these symptoms can be extremely difficult. I know, because I experienced much of this myself! I tried to get better for years, and got lots of well-meaning advice that didn’t really help, and sometimes made things worse. When I became a counselor years later, I was really surprised to learn about specific treatments that can give relief of these symptoms within a few months — even sometimes within about 6 weeks! I work with these well-researched methods now, and watch clients change their lives for the better, over and over.
