Do you feel alone in your marriage or family? Are you contemplating separation, divorce and/or remarriage? I would like to come along side you and understand your challenges and empower you to make life altering choices in your personal life to facilitate healing and wholeness. By using our faith as the foundation of accepting who we are and where we are at in our lives, we can come to understand our purpose and work with the gifts that
God bestowed upon us to grow and to learn to love ourselves.
It is difficult and very anxiety provoking to make the initial appointment, although, that is the first step towards success! I want to validate that emotional response, and to bring comfort by providing a faith driven approach enlightened with hope and strength for your personal growth and development. I assist my clients to be empowered by their self-worth, and work collaboratively to reach their ideal goal of success and progress. I provide a supportive, humorous, and safe environment where it's possible to connect on a therapeutic level.
I am committed to empowering individuals, couples and families to take charge of their lives as a means of enhancing their relationships and improving the quality of their lives.
Most individuals enter therapy when how they have been doing life is no longer working. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches in my work and incorporate into each clients work those I believe will be most helpful to them and their situation. I most enjoy working with people experiencing especially challenging situations who are seeking more effective ways of coping with life stressors.
I believe that people are beautiful, capable beings that have many of the internal resources that they need, but trauma and daily life stress can make it hard to function and difficult to consistently access those resources within. Let me help you unlock your potential.
Are you experiencing unwanted tension and challenges in your important relationships? Does your family life feel chaotic and you don't know what to do or where to turn? Are you experiencing a personal life crisis? Asking for help is hard. I can help individuals, couples and families work through unique personal situations. Whether you are a parent looking for ways to connect with your child in a healthier way or an adult experiencing specific obstacles in life, I believe we could work together to find relief.
I greatly admire the strength and courage it takes for someone to recognize patterns that are no longer serving them and reach out for help to make some changes. In therapy, I work to create a safe space to sit in heavy emotions and identify coping skills and strategies to work through these emotions to begin to heal old wounds. I enjoy working with adults who have overcome barriers in their life. I feel especially moved to serve women who have experienced hardships. I endorse holistic wellness and incorporate healthy living as a practice to reduce overall emotional vulnerability.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MS, LPCC, LADC
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). I specialize in providing mental health and substance use related therapy. I work with adults in the areas of anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma and substance use. I come from a strength-based, solution focused and person centered approach with clients' goals in mind. I work from psycho-dynamic, DBT, CBT, and 12 step facilitation theoretical frameworks. My interests include mindfulness based stress reduction, meditation, physical and mental health concerns.
Clients I work with are often not very willing to open up about themselves and are at times uninterested in therapy. Some would like to change but do not want to have to talk with someone to accomplish change, others have tried before and never been able to form a good relationship with a therapist. My clients often have a high resting level of anger and likely have had issues in life with anger or are described as difficult by others.
I seek to understand and empower you and your family members with the healing and tools to maintain lasting change that makes life worth living. I will partner with you to embrace, rather than avoid or fight, your difficulties so you can live life more fully and authentically.
I am a Licensed Psychologist and hold a masters and doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas. My experience is diverse and includes psychotherapy and psychological assessment with adults, adolescents and couples.
We all experience difficulties or challenges during different periods of our lives. Therapy can be a very useful resource to help you successfully navigate these times. My goal as a licensed psychologist is to work collaboratively with you to identify and solve problems that are negatively impacting your life, relationships, or that are getting in the way of achieving your goals.
I have been working with individual adults, families, couples, and groups for over 20 years. I have had success with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, low self esteem, grief, domestic violence, relationship difficulties, career issues and gambling issues.
Do you feel you can't do it alone? Do you feel trapped, stuck or discouraged? Do you have nowhere else to turn? I provide an environment that is supportive and nurturing, where you are heard, validated, and understood while making new life choices. It is my belief and experience that people make healthy, positive 'change' when given the encouragement and skills/tools to do so. I look forward to connecting with you, as you search for understanding, meaning, and satisfaction in your life.
I have worked extensively for years with men, women, and children who have struggled with anger and domestic abuse issues. The focus is on learning skills and techniques to address behaviors as well as therapeutic education to address the thought processes which attribute to those behaviors. In addition, I work with men, women, and children dealing with other issues. I treat all of my clients with dignity and respect. Focusing on individual strengths and utilizing encouragement and support, clients who wish to make real changes for their lives will have the necessary skills to do so.
Are you feeling stressed out? On the surface it may look like you have it all: a wonderful partner, nice family, or a great career but underneath, you are overwhelmed. Others may think you are put together, sometimes, even coming to you for support. They don't realize you are experiencing increased worry, anxiousness, and exhaustion. You feel stressed out, distracted, and even panicked. You just can't keep up. When you stop to think about it, you are not living the life you expected. You are tired and don't know where to turn.
Welcome. I have been providing therapy services for 18+ years in many settings including: inpatient hospital units, outpatient hospital clinics, emergency departments and outpatient mental health clinics. I work with adolescents, adults of all ages and couples. I also have a specialty in eating disorders and OCD. I believe balance is key to a successful, healthy life. In visiting this website, you are taking the first step in improving your quality of life. I look forward to meeting you.
Are you tired of therapists who say that they do relationship therapy only to have you practice basic communication skills? Are you tired of the lack of progress and want to get unstuck once and for all? I specialize in making sure that time does continue to pass by while you are feeling weighed down in the status quo. I'm straightforward and honest. My clients describe me as annoyingly neutral when they try to get me to take sides against their partners. They also describe me as willing to ask the hard questions and willing to keep people accountable. I love helping people navigate every stage of coupling or uncoupling.
We are a Private Group Practice that adolescents and adults provide therapy to individuals with the diagnosis of anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, self-image/esteem, gambling, difficulty adjusting to life stress, and trauma. We hold a dual license and experience in both mental health and chemical dependency.
Do you feel as though chronic pain is in the driver’s seat of your life? You want to take part in activities, but that feels close to impossible, or maybe your desire to do anything has faded altogether. Even what seems like small tasks feel overwhelming and if you complete them, afterwards you then have to rest for days. You might be irritated easily and often, and maybe people you care about are experiencing the consequences. You have likely attended countless medical appointments and attempted various treatments. I would like to try to help you increase your quality of life again.
You, the client, are the priority of my psychology practice. I work as a Licensed Psychologist and a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. What your goals and vision are for your life personally and professionally is the focus of your psychotherapy and/or marriage therapy. I will provide a therapeutic environment based on positive regard for you and assist and assess what your wants and needs are psychologically. I am willing, committed, and trained as your psychologist/coach to help empower you in your life choices. I specialize in Couples Counseling, Marriage Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Depression Therapy, and Life Coaching.
