What keeps me growing as a professional and drives me to do what I do, are the individuals and families that I have the privilege to work with everyday. There are times in all of our lives when we need to reach out for support and encouragement and to know that we are not alone. I have extensive experience in the field of trauma, in particular with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, child abuse, and child neglect. When working with this population, I have treated issues ranging from but not limited to PTSD, depression, anxiety, attachment, and anger.

Over my forty-five year career I have worked with many different people of every race, age, and problem type. I listen with a supportive, trained ear, and help my clients find the best coping strategies that will enable them to be happier. Even if only one person is in my office, I see that person as part of their family system, and help them make positive changes that will increase good feelings and reduce conflict. Nearly everyone goes through a rough period in their life when psychotherapy could be helpful for getting back on track.

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and at various times throughout their life. The decision to see a therapist may be centered around a recent crisis that is causing emotional stress, a desire to address long-standing symptoms or simply a wish to make a change in one’s life. Whatever the reason, I see psychotherapy as an opportunity for you to get to know yourself better and work towards leading a more meaningful life.

My speciality lends me the ability to understand active duty military, military families, veterans, and government employees. I love helping military members and veterans re-integrate back into life after deployment or separation as well as other common issues related to active duty service. I have extensive experience in helping military spouses and children with issues unique to the military lifestyle. I also enjoy helping military couples learn to communicate better with one another, especially during the post-deployment reintegration process.

Are you confused at times about your own goals and aspirations? If so, you are not alone, you are not the only one whose social media tells a different story than the one you are bottling up inside.

Finding the "right match" in a therapist can feel impossible. Whether it's your first time looking, or even when it's your second, third, or fourth time after another not-so-great experience. Failed attempts can lead to feeling uneasy of making more attempts, and counseling may feel less attainable or even worse… increase stress. I believe therapy works well when it is a collaborative process. Finding a therapist you trust is key, as I see the relationship between therapist and client as the foundation for authentic growth. Therapy is most beneficial when people feel safe and challenged.

Honesty. Vulnerability. Courage. If you are reading this right now you may be looking to make some positive changes in your life. It takes someone that is truly honest with themselves to reach out when they need help. It takes vulnerability to talk about it. It takes courage to follow through. Sometimes we may feel stuck in life and we come to a bridge that we need to cross. Are you looking for a therapist that is real and genuine that can assist you in crossing this bridge?

We often seek support when we feel stuck or hopeless. This could be in our relationship, our family, or within ourselves. The strategies we've used for years to address conflict, envision our future, manage stress, protect ourselves, form relationships, ask for help, or otherwise move in the world stop working. The strain of this transition and the uncertainty that comes with change can cause many symptoms. My goal is to work transparently with you to try something new, explaining theories, exploring causes, asking what styles resonate, and adjusting throughout sessions to equally challenge and support.

What type of Columbia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
