Immediate Openings...It can be a very scary feeling to take the first step towards therapy for you or your loved ones, and it takes courage and strength to ask for help. You are now taking those all-important first steps! You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and hopelessness, just to mention a few on a very long list of not-so-good feelings. Any of these feelings can make you feel stressed, unmotivated, and not knowing how to move forward.

At Open Fields Therapy, we understand and support adults who experience anxiety, depressed mood, and relationship difficulties. We all develop patterns of thinking, feeling, and relating to others. Often these patterns have served us in the past. However, during times of stress, loss, or traumatic experience, these patterns may be unhelpful, and we can feel stuck. This is when therapy can make a big difference in feeling better and help us live more effectively. At Open Fields Therapy we seek to understand your unique situation and help to remove the obstacles that interfere with living out the values that are important to you.

My clients typically are seeking support for relational, sexual, or spiritual problems, and benefit from a safe space where help is available and confidential. I take a warm, relational approach to my work with clients, and work best with those who are seeking to reflect on ways they can nurture improved relationships with themselves and others. Clients can expect to hear me emphasizing self-compassion and relational awareness through observation, reflection, and reframing of thoughts or language.

I imagine you're seeking a psychotherapist for counseling because you hope to make some important changes. Success working with a psychologist depends on you feeling comfortable engaging in a collaborative manner with her. Some therapy sessions may be difficult as you ask important questions about yourself, how you function in the world. As you proceed, you may experience frustration, confusion, anxiety, self-doubt and/or conflicted feelings, but at the end of your psychotherapy you'll most likely have learned something new to help you with the concerns that brought you in to seek psychological treatment.

Do you often find yourself stuck in a mindset that doesn't seem to be working for you - one that's critical, repetitive, and overwhelming? Does it feel like stressful events from your past never go away, no matter how hard you try to move past them? Perhaps you feel exhausted from poor focus, issues with trusting, distressing emotions, or a general lack of meaning in life. It seems like everyone else has it together, but you are starting to lose hope that things can get better. You are looking for someone to help you find a sense of balance and move toward the life you desire.

I see my role as a therapist is walking with you while you navigate where you want to be. I trust that you know what you need and where you want to go even if it is not clear to you right now. My job is to help you find that clarity and stability, give you some tools that can help you along the way and cheer you on. As a therapist, I have a non- directive style that allows you to work on what is important to you. I have an interactive style that uses individual and family conversation. Also, I use play and sand tray to increase connection, and access painful content that can be difficult to express with words.

Life is one big challenge. Therapy is about support for movement and change. I have been trained and/or certified in therapies that work with the brain and body in ways that are giving people a new lease on life. Every day clients are finding they can feel new, different, 'cleaned out', balanced, and with new energy and ability to move forward.

Witnessing people create meaningful changes in their lives has been my greatest privilege, as a therapist. Strong, loving relationships, healthy family bonds, vocational success, healing from wounds of trauma, and reconnecting to a joyful participation in life are some of the experiences I have been able to share with clients. I hold a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy and bring my background in creative arts, trauma work, and rich life experience to help clients get past the barriers of anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Reaching out to a therapist is a bold move. It takes courage to begin the process of self exploration and discovery, and it takes a safe place to do that important work. I am committed to providing that safe space for my clients. I believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is a unique and healing one. It is two minds coming together to explore the ways in which current life stresses intersect with painful past experiences to create suffering. When a client feels respected and seen, they are able to grieve their past hurts and find new paths for coping.
