You deserve better. It’s as simple as that. Yet believing it is one thing and achieving it is another. Life’s uncertainties keep coming and your responsibilities are still calling. It feels like you are being pulled and all directions to keep your family and house afloat. You may be trying to hold everything and everyone together, yet it all keeps falling apart. Just when it feels like everything is going well, you start to worry about when the other shoe will drop. Do these thoughts resonate? Possibly life is going okay for you, yet your child can’t cope with all of life’s changes.

Do you struggle with self-confidence or feel discouraged? Do you get anxious and wonder why? Are you struggling in your closest relationships? If the answer is yes to any of these questions you may benefit from the process of counseling and EMDR. If your child is struggling, would you like to gain better tools as their parent to support them or see them learn new ways to handle difficulties? You do not have to walk this journey alone!

I enjoy working with people of all ages, including children , teens, adults and geriatric.
My goal with anyone interested in counseling is to "meet you where you are at ". Feeling comfortable with your counseling experience is very important to me. With therapy, it is essential to provide non-judgmental feedback with an understanding that everyone is unique regarding their therapeutic needs. I am here to offer you a multidisciplinary approach regarding your concerns, rather than a "one size fits all approach". We investigate together the concerns that brought you into counseling with the idea of working together to sort out the important details. Bringing yourself to the origin of your concerns is the goal.

When children and teens come to me, I appreciate parental wisdom and will utilize it in our work.
You are unique in all the world! There is no one just like you with your story or life. Your family, pets, friends, community--where you came from--what you have overcome and endured-all these make you the unique person you are. At some time you may wish to turn the page on your story. My therapy involves walking with you while you decide where you want to go from here--who the person is that you want to be--how you want your life and story to change. I will listen and challenge, support and invite you to learn new skills and growth.

No matter how distressed you are by symptoms of anxiety or depression - or by relationship conflict - I will approach your problem in living as a unique growth opportunity. Initially, I may help you to reduce symptoms of distress. I teach mindfulness skills which enable greater access to feelings, sensations and thoughts. This becomes a tool for deepening relaxation and insight. I will focus on developing a solid working relationship with you compassionately, and with respect . Then we can work TOGETHER to to create a sense of direction, or a road map, in order to find a way back to 'better'.

Here is that place...a place where you can find peace to resolve the crushing feelings of hurt, pain, and being misunderstood. Imagine a day when you are able to navigate through life effectively, communicate your needs, and accomplish your goals with less anxiety, less depression, and less anger. Awesome right?
