I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief therapy, Internal Family systems and Mindfulness-Based to help my clients.
Talking about your concerns, and feelings, can help reduce stress. You will appreciate having someone to listen to you and realize that you are not alone. Whether you are struggling with a difficult situation, adjusting to a major change in your life, grieving the loss of someone you loved, or just needing to make some personal changes. As a mental health counselor, I have assisted others as they work through and move on from their problems. It takes time but aren't you worth it? We can schedule your appointments based on your availability.

In person sessions! Have you found yourself in the same relationships over and over? Are you STUCK in unhealthy relationships with your family and friends? Have you ever said to yourself “How did I get here again?” Do you have difficulty saying “no?” Unhealthy relationships can leave us heartbroken and unfulfilled. We spend countless amounts of energy trying to figure out where we went wrong all to no avail. We become sad, angry, jaded and defeated. Sometimes we give up on relationships all together. It hurts to much to stay and we are too afraid to change. We get STUCK between a rock and a hard place.

My journey to becoming a therapist started when I was on the other side of the couch as a teen battling anxiety. I got treatment that changed my life. I am here to do the same. Clients describe me as energetic, warm, positive, and non-judgemental. My style is often labeled as gentle and client led. I have a heart for advocacy and am comfortable coordinating with other providers, educational systems, employers, or government agencies. My approach is based on my belief in the power of the therapeutic relationship.

Many of us go through life suffering in silence. We may feel that even when we share with people we trust, it is still hard to find relief. This last year of the pandemic may have made these challenges even harder to manage, while also bringing on more difficult experiences. This may feel like anxiety, grief, shame, or intense sadness, and may be leaving you feeling lost, exhausted, overwhelmed, unfulfilled, and unhappy. In this practice we are committed to creating a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space where you can bring your full self with all of your challenges, and engage in the journey to relief and healing.

I practice from a strengths-based approach and utilize a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
You never learned how to set healthy boundaries, which has led to people-pleasing behavior, low self-esteem and difficulty having your needs met in relationships. Maybe you've coped with painful feelings with food, drugs or bad relationships. You deserve to be valued for who you are and not what you do for others. The opportunity to show up in your life as your true self can feel both exciting and terrifying. I offer a warm, safe environment to process painful feelings that may arise during this process. Together we can learn new ways to cope that will help you build a life that feels true to you.

I encourage self-expression and exploration using techniques from mindfulness, IFS , sensorimotor and CBT.
You’re trying to hold it together as best as you can. You are able to be there for everyone else but struggle to show up for yourself. Sometimes you just feel so down but you can’t quite figure out why. It's been going on for a while now and no matter what you have tried, nothing seems to make you feel better. It may be something from your past that you are having a hard time dealing with or may even avoid thinking about. You feel like no one gets it. So you put on a brave face each day and decide you can deal with whatever it is later. You question your every move and your relationships, thinking “something must be wrong with me"

With training in emotionally focused therapy, CBT, ACT, trauma-informed care, and IFS , and experience working with couples and individual adults, I am eager to hear about your needs.
“I don't feel cared for.” “When I bring up the ‘hard stuff,’ I’m met with silence." “Whatever I give is never enough.” “Why do I feel so alone?” “We keep having the same fights.” “I just want to be heard.” If these statements resonate with you, I'm glad you've landed on my page! Navigating these struggles alone can be overwhelming. In couples therapy, I can offer effective and compassionate help for your relationship, tailored to meet the needs of your situation. Working together, we can develop the skills you need to move away from a cycle of conflict and frustration and move towards greater connection, communication, and intimacy.

What type of Laurel 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Laurel?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
