Are your days consumed with worry, fear or depression? Do you feel as though life is getting you down? Are you struggling with stress or anxiety? All of these things can affect our ability to function and enjoy life to its fullest. Counseling can help. I assist individuals of all ages, adolescents, teens, college students and adults in navigating difficult situations. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. Talking about our worries, struggles or vulnerabilities can seem scary, but getting help doesn't have to be!

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

Let me first say that the fact that you are searching online for help is a sign that there is a part of you that has had enough. I want to address that part of you because it holds the key to your wholeness. Whether you see the root of your difficulty as a primary relationship or some other unknown source, I want to aid you in engaging in the kind of self examination that will see you through your current pain to the new life that is surely waiting on the other side.

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.

I work with adults and teens going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

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.

Hi- You have probably either chanced across, or deliberately come to my website because of a recommendation or your personal interest in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I am passionate about EMDR as an approach to healing not only recent trauma, but also in approaching experiences buried deep in the past. Therapy, and EMDR specifically, helps liberate us from learned emotional responses. Liberation from ingrained patterns makes us response able. Being able to respond to our circumstances is empowering. With this comes increased self compassion and understanding. Therapy truly is a blessing!

Often we tell ourselves, "I should be able to handle this." This idea has served us in the past as we have built our careers, but sometimes our self-reliance becomes a burden as we find ourselves suffering in isolation, afraid to ask for help once we need it. We may find we are using avoidant coping mechanisms excessively. We want to feel good about work again, we want our relationships to bring us joy again. Yet we also may have stopped hoping things could get better, except on occasion when things may seem too much to bear and we privately dare to hope.
