My training is in Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Eye movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Particularly when working with trauma, I am passionate about utilizing IFS and EMDR to restore wellbeing and stability.
Is your life spiraling out of control? Anxiety, lack of sleep, irritation, failure in relationships; does it seems that too much is not working out as planned? Throughout my previous career in the medical field and now as a therapist, the opportunity to help people has always been my passion. If you want to own the direction of your life and address the issues that are keeping you off track, I would love to help. Using multiple approaches to therapy, I have the knowledge, freedom, and flexibility to meet my client where they’re at, rather than applying a standardized, “one size fits all” method.

Are you finding that you are turning outside yourself to help you feel better? Have you lost someone or something important to you? Has something traumatic happened? Sometimes people just need a professional to talk with because they do not want to burden family or friends with their troubles.

You’re defeated, broken, and feeling trapped in your past. Life has not been easy for you and along the way you seem to have lost who you are. The trauma you have experienced is affecting you daily, making you feel helpless. Unable to love yourself you struggle to set and maintain boundaries. The pressure to please others is exhausting and you can't seem to find balance or support in your life. Your history of abuse triggers you to impulsively react- rather than logically respond during difficult situations. You’re looking for guidance to process through all the baggage, uncertainty, and stress.

“The only constant in life is change.” Are you adjusting to a: new job, relationship, loss of a loved one, or overall change in your way of life? Do you feel overwhelmed by the many changes causing you to feel stagnant? You notice others seemingly accepting change fluidly throughout their lives and are somewhat in awe of the process. You are tired of replaying the same scenario in your head while your sadness and anxiety escalate.

You spend the majority of your days simply going through the motions in your life; feeling disconnected, unmotivated, or unfulfilled at work, at home, or in your relationships. You see how much time has passed and wish that you could have a life filled with more joy, fulfillment, security & abundance. You don’t know where to start. To the outside world, your life might appear to be okay, but for you, something just doesn’t feel right. You push yourself to do better, be better, but inside, you battle with a little voice in your head that is telling you it's not enough. At times, you feel like you’re barely holding it all together.

Unlearning old habits that no longer serve you but have been protecting you for so long. The past can feel overwhelming and letting go may feel so distant. Overthinking and obsessing bleeding into your connections and relationships. Intimacy feels unattainable with the burden you have been carrying around. Doubting safety within your connections contributes to your anxiety and feelings of sadness. What if you could remove and redirect obsessive thoughts and feelings and allow yourself to find true connection again? Allowing for new habits and patterns to begin to form. The burden that is heavy on your shoulders can be dropped.

Your past is a heavy weight you carry around with you. You wish you could just erase it from memory. You've tried ignoring it and suppressing it, but it's always there. Plagued by anxiety, flashbacks, difficulty trusting others, irritability, and avoiding reminders of what happened. Imagine what life could be like, if you could break free from your past- letting go of that heavy weight. No longer being haunted by painful memories of things that happened way back when. Having a more positive outlook on your past and future, and feeling more at ease.

No matter how hard you try to move forward, you feel like your taking one step back. You’re a high performer with perfectionism tendencies and always put on a smile, which helps you forget your pain. You feel you will never be fully happy and never be able to fully enjoy life how others do, because of your many losses, attributing to your decreased self esteem. You may keep friends and family at a distance, to protect yourself from yet another inevitable loss. You may have stopped exercising and taking care of yourself the way you used to, since it takes too much work and you're just surviving at the end of another long day.

There are times when life can be extremely difficult! During these times, it may feel as if you don't have the right tools to manage. We can sometimes be blind to our own behaviors that may be causing us to repeat painful patterns in our life. These painful patterns can bring about relationship problems and a host of uncomfortable feelings. My goal, as your therapist, is to partner with you to identify ways to function more effectively in life and feel better. My belief is that anyone can benefit from therapy and it is a gift we give ourselves. I use a variety of treatment approaches that will bring positive, measurable results.

What type of Birmingham 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 Birmingham?
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.
