I genuinely believe that, when in a space of safety and acceptance, nothing can be more powerful than sharing our stories. The sharing opens space for processing, coping, and healing. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I practice a holistic approach to address many of life’s challenges, whether that be trauma, depression, anxiety, codependency, grief, or life stressors. I will sit with you, actively listen, teach you to process your emotions in a healthy way, and we will collaboratively work toward your desired outcome.

If you're reading this, I suspect you've had more than your fair share of sorrow, fear, and hurt. Maybe you feel like something's missing or broken inside and you just want to get back to feeling like yourself. Or you're looking for a place to sort through the tangled mess of emotions and wounds and painful memories from your past - the ones that still seem to sting like they just happened yesterday. Maybe you're stuck in a self-destructive cycle of self-loathing, numbing, and shame. Or you're stressed out and overwhelmed - on the verge of giving up. Whatever it is that you're facing, please know - you don't have to face it alone.

(As a couple or individual) - Experiencing a traumatic event, anxiety/ past pain can send you into a panic, tearful, angry, shut down. Feeling disconnected from yourself or from your partner. Stress feels so intense that sometimes it moves you to withdrawal. Or it rises into agitation: why doesn't my partner see my pain? Why did this/does this conflict/"bad thing" happen? What if it happens again? Feeling distrustful that anyone will be there for you either because you have been let down by someone before (maybe your partner) or have experienced something painful/traumatic & fear it will happen again. Feeling lonely and ignored.

Let’s be honest. Life gets real sometimes. Things happen and we can wind up feeling stuck, lost, or hopeless. To top it all off, we often feel pressured to put on a brave face and weather the storm. It’s for these reasons that I founded Sunshine Counseling. You deserve a space where you can be yourself, where you don’t have to hide, and where you can safely process life. Truth be told, I named my therapy practice after a mug my friend gave me which sarcastically declares, "I am a ray of freaking sunshine!" This cheeky little mug actually encapsulates my world view. It is not all sunshine and rainbows. And that's ok.

I believe having the ability to quickly build rapport and a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients is one of the most important aspects of helping enable and support change. Throughout the course of my career as a school social worker and therapist, I have worked closely with preteen, teen, and young adults going through a wide range of behavioral and mental health concerns. Within my practice, I provide an empathetic and non-judgmental environment that meets preteens, teens and young adults where they are so they can express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a safe and welcoming environment.

There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance. (I am working part-time and therefore, can only accept a limited number of clients. Thank you for patience).

In my practice, I recognize that as people we have many different emotions and experiences that drive us. Sometimes we do not understand what we are feeling, why we are feeling it, and why we are responding the way that we are. That is why I am passionate about helping my clients create a better understanding of themselves that creates a positive change to bring healing.

I am so proud of you for taking the first step in starting your healing journey. It's not easy but I am so glad that you did! The thought of receiving therapy or being vulnerable can be uncomfortable, however, the process can be life-changing. There are times where we feel unworthy, not good enough and have this idea to strive for "perfection". These thoughts can be overwhelming and can stop you from living your life wholeheartedly. My mission is to support you as you go through this process. I use Person Centered, Yoga Movement and Solution Focused therapies to help meet the need of my clients.

*NOW TAKING NEW CLIENTS EMAIL TO SCHEDULE* If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own. Not understanding your worth, you may struggle following your dreams or have a career where you feel overworked and under valued. Lets flip the script and heal your wounds.

If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, and burn-out, and looking for a different approach to therapy you've come to the right place. My name is Kate, and I practice body-based psychotherapy. This means that we approach your healing from both the top-down, traditional methods of processing your issues through talk therapy, as well as the bottom-up approach of releasing body held trauma and stuck emotions through breathwork and movement. I offer a unique 90 minute session that combines talk, breathwork meditation, and movement.
