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.

Sharing your story matters and I consider it an honor any time a client chooses to share theirs with me. Inviting someone else into your journey can feel scary, exciting, comforting and vulnerable, but there is something powerful that happens when you do. Whether you have shared your story many times before or this is your first time, I am ready to walk that journey with you.

If you are a teenager, young adult, parent, or spouse you may often experience stress in your life. You may feel less connected, misunderstood, and overwhelmed with work or school. Although some stress is healthy, too much stress makes it even more challenging to create solutions and work through problems. Whatever the issue is, you would like to feel more connected and valued in your relationships, improve your ability to manage your stress and solve problems, overcome previous barriers, and have a better sense of who you are.

I have been in private practice since 1992. Prior to earning my doctorate in clinical psychology, I was an elementary school teacher for seven years. About 70 percent of my current practice is with children and teens and 30 percent with adults, families, and couples. I absolutely love my vocation! I am privileged to join people on their journeys, to meet them where they are and go from there. I am committed to partnering with my patients to help them reach their full potential. I place a high value on the therapeutic relationship.

Life is often stressful and living with diabetes, only makes it more challenging. Having a therapist who also understands the mental and emotional side of diabetes can be really helpful. People who live with diabetes often seek a mental health professional who "gets it" when it comes to understanding diabetes. In my practice, I work with clients by building from their existing strengths, increase their coping strategies for stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, and diabetes-related distress, to empower clients to live with a greater sense of wellbeing.

Whether dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, or interpersonal turmoil my goal is to help place you firmly in the driver’s seat of your own life. I approach therapy as a collaborative effort and my aim is to assist each individual in more fully becoming the person that they would like to be. Oftentimes this process involves honesty, courage, persistence, and a willingness to let go of that which no longer serves our best interest. It is my privilege to walk beside you as you navigate this terrain in the hope of a better tomorrow.

Life is full of peaks and valleys, and sometimes we all need a little support or guidance. I am passionate about supporting kids, young adults, women, and parents in periods of struggle or transition. I have training and lived experience with anxiety, depression, trauma, pain, child and family issues, and perinatal mood disorders. I have worked with child sexual abuse survivors, people involved in the justice system, those working through suicidal ideation and self-harm, and parents trying to support their children. I can relate to people from all different walks of life, cultures, religious backgrounds, and sexual orientations.

I believe it is a difficult decision to reach out for support from another person. In so doing, therapy not only needs to be a gentle guidance towards a happier lifestyle, but it also needs to incorporate challenges. In working with individuals, couples and families, I enjoy creating a balance of both of these concepts. Shifting our perceptions and changing our behaviors is not a simple process for anyone. I work with parents, teenagers and even our littlest people during stressful life situations including depression, anxiety, anger management, marital issues, women's issues, and processing traumatic events.

Come in and talk as much or as little as you want to. When you feel the right amount of safety and trust, we will figure out together how to proceed, how to reach the goals you have, how to help you be the person you want to be. You will find support, privacy, and respect. All of us want to belong. All of us fear being ultimately alone. All of us want to feel safe, cared for, and connected to others. Let me help you work on those things and see your symptoms and functioning improve.

I believe that the counseling session should be a place where people can take a break from the daily grind and invest in themselves in meaningful ways. In my practice, I encourage individuals to share the richness of their life stories, to replace oppressive thought patterns, and to reclaim their unique contribution to the world. My approach to counseling is integrated. I believe that unique individuals require unique therapy. It is my job to shape the therapeutic experience to best fit the needs of the individual.

Relationships can be hard. You can love someone and still have destructive patterns of communication. I want to help each person learn new and better ways to communicate. Sometimes, we just need to be heard by someone. I want to hear from each client by listening deeply to what they are saying. I have worked with many couples and individuals over the years to build stronger relationships and happier lives.

Spirituality Therapists

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?

Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.

What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?

There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.

Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?

Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.

How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?

​​Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
