If you are an adult or adolescent and you are struggling with a challenge or a relationship or simply have a question, please give me a call.
We all face trials, setbacks and challenges in life. One of the biggest struggles we all face is having healthy relationships. In order to have healthy relationships, we need to communicate effectively, resolve conflict sand be willing to forgive when offended. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families as they navigate relationships. I also work with people who have anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, marital issues, spiritual struggles, parenting, identity issues and stress. The goal for my clients is to find freedom, peace and balance in their lives

As a therapist, I believe that change happens in therapy when there is an authentic relationship that yields a safe place for people to explore and address their feelings in a non-judgmental and comfortable way. I feel I am gifted in building true connections through empathy. In my practice, I meet people where they are in life & work to ensure that client's feel valued and empowered in the therapy process. God designs people beautifully & individually. It is my desire to help each of my clients explore that within themselves and to discover the true joy that comes when we can see life in this light.

Life changes, and so do relationships. All lasting relationships are built on choosing each other everyday, and when we lose sight of that, the foundation begins to crumble. All families are blended in one way or another. A relationship in and of itself is two different people coming together; whether it be mother-daughter, father-son, friends, or romantic partners. A marriage is a commitment to blend two families. Families with different values, interests, and belief systems.

My training is within multiple different areas including issues surrounding anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, grief, familial and relationship struggles, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Therapy is one of the most invaluable experiences an individual can endure. My goal as a therapist is to create a warm, safe, and trusting environment for my clients. I use a holistic approach, specifically utilizing psychodynamic theory, mindfulness, somatic therapy, CBT, SFBT, and feminist theory. I believe the mind, body, and soul connection is vital in reaching our most authentic selves.

I believe counseling is a collaborative relationship between counselor and client.
As a counselor, I am passionate about the process of discovering one's true self. There is something so powerful about the therapy experience. Being able to connect with another human on a therapeutic level while on the journey to finding your authentic self is compelling. My goal is to allow a space for people to connect with themselves and their emotions. I believe in the healing process of therapy and the importance of empowering clients to take charge of their lives. I acknowledge the stigma of entering a counseling relationship and work to advocate for client's mental health.

As a holistic-minded therapist who works with both individuals and couples, I see the counseling process as an opportunity to examine old ways of relating to oneself and explore new ways of interacting. I use a whole-body approach to guide clients in becoming more self-aware and finding the strength to initiate long-term positive change for themselves. With couples, my goal is to improve intimacy and commitment using a research-based approach that identifies your strengths, and models healthy relationship patterns. I will walk with you as we navigate creating new interactions and a happier, stronger partnership.

I believe the human capacity for change and growth is incredible. Difficult experiences, negative environments, and challenging relationships can distort our connections with ourselves and others. These disconnections can create problems, and I see relationships as powerful change agents--particularly our relationship with ourselves. When clients are given the opportunity to feel heard and understood, healing and growth are possible. To do this, I believe it is vital for us to establish a strong relationship to support the change you would like to make. I provide culturally sensitive therapy to motivated individuals and couples.

It's important that we develop a relationship based on honesty and trust.
My therapy style involves meeting the clients where they are at psychologically. It is important to help the client identify what their struggles entail, and together we discover ways to reach their goals. The key is the client's perceptions and thoughts about their life. This perception influences their behavior. Together we can explore their feelings and develop workable strategies to clarify their issues. I rely on the client's strengths and insights to produce necessary support and build a healthy life on their terms. Clients gain an improved sense of their identity and a better process to attain their goals.

Starting or returning to counseling is rarely easy; it often means that you are facing a challenge that does not have a simple solution. Sharing what is on your mind may be a relief, but for many people, it is also anxiety provoking. Whether your concerns are present-focused or have roots in the past, we can create a space where you can process and grow through the obstacles you are facing. Areas in which I have special knowledge include trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, and life transitions. During sessions, you can expect me to express empathetic understanding, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness.

ANXIETY and DEPRESSION during this time can be overwhelming but you don't have to walk this alone. I believe ultimately, clients know what is best for themselves; however, we all need Godly wisdom and a compassionate mentor to assist in “sorting out the messiness of life”. I consider it a privilege and an honor to use my professional skills and Biblical truths to incorporate hope, resiliency, healing, and watching people create success in various aspects of their lives.

When people have experienced loss, trauma, abuse, chronic stress, addiction or disconnection from others they may develop unhealthy patterns of responding. We can transform many of these patterns through increasing our own awareness. We all carry the answers to our own healing within us. I seek to make working with me accessible and welcoming to all. You are invited to come as you are. I'm here for you when you are feeling stuck, limited by stigma or shame, caught in past hurts, fearful, isolated, or in need of getting back to feeling like you.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
