I have an unusual combination of specialties as both a clinical counselor and a spiritual director. I absolutely love working with couples and am trained in the Developmental Model; a system that follows the stages of relationship development. I also have specialized training to treat anxiety disorders like Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Panic Disorder and utilize ERP for OCD and In Vivo treatment where appropriate. I also have a Divinity degree and a background in a faith-based non-profit, which make integrating a client's faith a particular joy in therapy.

The journey to be your best self is too important to take alone. So it would be my pleasure to help guide you to a better, clearer tomorrow – mentally, physically, and emotionally. My approach as a psychotherapist is one of understanding where you are now, and then working together to reach the place you desire to be. We’ve all walked a unique life path and had different experiences that shaped us, so my approach is not cookie-cutter at all. I believe in hope, inspiration, and the power of the individual. We are stronger than we realize, but the key to mental clarity and emotional well-being sometimes remains elusive.

Life can present us with many different challenges. We are confronted with stress and negativity on a daily basis. At times it may feel too overwhelming to cope with it all. Perhaps you are seeking treatment to cope with a loss, to manage anxiety or mood swings, or are struggling with a difficult relationship. Therapy provides you with a safe, supportive and healing environment to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement. I practice using a psychodynamic approach, also known as insight-oriented therapy. I also utilize other approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness.

Things are unbelievably stressful right now, aren’t they? It might be getting harder to convince yourself that everything’s okay. You might feel less in control of your emotions than you usually do. There is help and support to get you through. As difficult and out of the ordinary as things are right now, it is still the time to work on the anxiety that weighs you down. It is still the time to heal from the trauma(s) you’ve experienced. Whatever difficulty you’ve been thinking you’d like to work on, therapy can still help. And it can help you get through the current situation.

~Currently only conducting SAP evaluations -No new patients~ Sometimes you need a catalyst to begin moving towards a richer and more meaningful life. Family and friends are not always enough to guide, support and challenge you to see things from a different perspective. It can be hard to know where to start. I have seen the positive life changing effects that therapy has on people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, grief and loss as well as other distressing events, and enjoy working with people towards a healthier and more satisfying life.

Many of us are fortunate to have friends and family who listen to our problems and concerns. But, sometimes, that may not be enough and we need the help and guidance of a skilled and experienced professional. We also want to be sure that we are getting an objective and unbiased opinion. I am a very active participant in the sessions, giving feedback and making suggestions. Most people come in with specific "here and now" issues they want to resolve. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of several approaches useful in addressing both current issues and those of longer duration.

I believe in an individual's desire for self-awareness. I hope to provide a comfortable environment where, as the client, you can explore your choices for the future. When you able to adopt a different view of yourself you gain insight which can make the possibilities endless and the excitement for change contagious. I see individuals who have been working hard and are still struggling to understand why they feel and/or think as they do. I also work with parents who want to do their best for their child(ren) while developing deeper relationships with themselves.

Finding a therapist that fits your needs is important. I work hard to meet clients "where they are" in making change, and approach therapy in a non-judgmental, transparent, collaborative, authentic, open, warm, and direct manner. I prioritize open dialogue about our therapy process to ensure you are getting what you want from our work together, and invite client feedback to hold me accountable to providing good clinical service.

Sometimes, core parts of who we are fall outside of what is considered normal or acceptable. It can feel impossible to understand yourself. You might feel invisible or wonder if you’re really the problem. You know that hiding these parts of yourself doesn’t feel right and isn’t sustainable. At the same time, you question whether it’s worth all the pain that might come from fully exploring and expressing yourself without hiding your identity, isolating from others, or masking. You may already have a strong sense of your identity and know what would help but feel that it's not accessible or possible.
