My role as a counselor is to be an instrument for change. I aspire to help others reach their full potential as we transition through life's challenges together. Using a strengths-based approach, I support clients as they learn to accept existing circumstances. I assist clients in developing clarity and encourage identifying areas where one can grow personally to attain realistic goals. Together we embark upon a journey that often times explores the price of self-doubt, the importance of forgiveness, and the ability to develop increased faith, trust, and belief in oneself.

When one experiences trauma, it is possible that how they relate to others may change. I strongly believe that relationships; how we relate and interact with others, is the cornerstone of healthy living. What is left unresolved from one's history or childhood often finds its way into the relationships one has in the present. As a family therapist, I spend my time supporting individuals and families in exploring these past experiences that have made them into who they are now, allowing them to move forward and live a healthy lifestyle.

I have extensive experience in diverse issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, addictions and family dynamics. My approach is both traditional and non-traditional, which led to my training in EMDR, Sandplay therapy and Brainspotting. These treatment modalities can greatly assist in the processing and healing from issues that are deeply-rooted and often not fully resolved with talk therapy alone.

Do you suffer from sexual or internet addiction? Substance or alcohol abuse? Depression or Anxiety? I have been successfully helping clients suffering from addiction, mood, and anxiety disorders regain control of their lives. I use my warmth, sensitivity, and humor to create a healthy and balanced therapeutic relationship with my clients. My philosophy is to help clients obtain the necessary skills they need to eventually "be their own therapist." This is achieved through a combination of Cognitive Behavioral and Insight Oriented therapy techniques. I challenge my clients to think, gain insight and understanding, and make concrete changes in their daily lives.

Are you troubled and stressed in a relationship, but don't know how to change things? Do you say yes when you want to say no? Are you covering up your pain with destructive behaviors? Do you judge yourself harshly and feel you are just never good enough? Negative thoughts, anxiety and low self esteem can be an enormous burden, making it a crushing chore to just get through the day. They affect your relationships, your ability to work, and can lead to substance abuse, over-eating and other behaviors that can pull you into a downward spiral.

Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.
