Accepting a very limited number of new clients. At times you may not know where to turn or what to do to make things better. If you could use some support, I'd like to help. My office provides a comfortable atmosphere where I am non-judgmental in my approach. My mission is to help improve my clients' lives by focusing on their strengths to create a healthy difference that is long lasting.
Mental health impacts us everyday, whether we're struggling or know someone who is. As a therapist, I aim to improve the lives of those seeking help, by offering individual, couple and group therapy. It is my goal to provide my clients with hope and encouragement, when they have none. My approach is to come along side my clients, and discover with them, the awareness and skills they need to prioritize, give clarity, make changes and improve their lives.

TELEHEALTH Appointments are available. I am a fully trained and CERTIFIED EMDR THERAPIST. EMDR is effective in reducing anxiety and reactivity to emotional triggers often caused by painful memories. EMDR speeds up processing of distressing experiences and memories by accessing the emotional and intellectual parts of our brain. Most clients report positive changes quicker in comparison to traditional talk therapy. Together we'll tailor a treatment plan and healthy strategies to meet your goals. Call for a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if we'd be a good fit in working together.

Imagine a therapy that is fun, involves an E.E.G., computer, movies, music, games and zero-gravity chair.

I have been in practice for 29 years. I have learned we all seek to feel valued & safe in our relationships. Sometimes when we are not feeling valued we become angry & in the process self defeating in our behaviors. My goal is to help clients gain confidence so they are better able to get their needs met within their relationships.
I specialize in helping children, teens, and adults increase their emotional and behavioral regulation for anxiety disorders, OCD, and early childhood behavioral challenges. Through a collaborative approach, I provide individual therapy with the child, while also involving parents in the process to provide parents with the tools to support their child/teen. My collaborative, relational, playful, light-hearted style allows me to develop a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship with every client, which creates a safe environment for children, teens, and adults to learn the skills to manage daily life experiences.
I am currently accepting new clients, with flexible evening and weekend availability. People often hold their pain inside, perhaps fearing they will burden others or not get the support they need. I can help by providing a space in which you can express yourself freely. In my experience, opening up emotionally to access the core of pain is where lasting, transformative change takes place. Thus, I am committed to providing an environment in which you feel free to express your feelings, no matter how difficult, in order to lead a fuller, richer life.

It takes courage to trust another person with your story and face yourself honestly. Maybe you are feeling unsatisfied in your relationships. Perhaps you are feeling flooded with past traumas. Or maybe you have difficulty setting boundaries or controlling your worry. Therapy can be a way to connect with our true selves so that we can show up authentically in the world and in relationships.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MEd, LPCC, PhD
I enjoy getting to know my clients and will take the time to learn your story, strengths, and values. While a part of your story is whatever concern you're seeking help with, I find it beneficial to focus on strengths and supports more than on the "problem" itself. Everyone's situation is unique and I have learned to meet clients where they are at. Some clients need a safe space to process their feelings or voice systemic issues that impact them. Others are feeling stuck and want help coming up strategies. I use a collaborative approach to help you navigate your challenges and find support in difficult times.
Sometimes we need extra support in this daily thing we call life. Reaching out for help shows courage and strength because you are in charge of the changes you want to make. I will stand by you and meet you where you are at and walk with you toward change. With motivation and coaching, I will help remind you of what you have inside you to make these changes. If you are struggling and not seeing or feeling your true potential, please come and share your story with me.
That never ending loop of not feeling good enough or capable enough. Do you find yourself worried, tense, or having difficulty with sleep? Have you experienced a trauma? Maybe you are working on growing a family and it is everything you dreamed, except when it isn't. You are not alone, so many individuals face those same challenges. You deserve support, and I appreciate the courage it took for you to get here. Know that you deserve a chance to talk and heal and feel valid. So, sit down, let's talk about it.
- Licensed Mental Health Professional- OCD and Anxiety Disorders - Mood and Personality Disorders - Anger Management - Adult Treatment - Individual and Group Facilitation Work within clinic and in clients' own environment, in the field where individuals with anxiety disorders are exposed to and learn to diffuse stressful situations. Highly skilled solutions oriented mental health therapist dedicated to providing responsible care and implementing effective treatment to adults experiencing distressful anxiety disorders. Effective motivator with inherent ability to build trust and guide clients through interventions that involve In Vivo exposure - usually on a graduated basis, starting with tolerable levels of exposure and progressing through agreed, increasing levels of challenge.
Four words represent the heart of my counseling focus while working with adults and couples for over 25 years. These words are: Hurts, Habits, Home and Heaven. 1) HURTS are past or recent wounds that a person needs help and healing from; 2) HABITS are repetitive and unwanted emotions, thoughts and activities that control a person; 3) HOME represents our most important relationships between partners, spouses and friends, but where confusion, conflict and disconnection can occur; and 4) HEAVEN represents the importance of one's faith in God for finding love, direction, and assurance that we matter in this life and beyond.
My perspective is that we all can experience more joy and fulfillment in our personal and interpersonal relationships. Together we can gain insight and focus, take on new directions, achieve and find greater life satisfaction. I facilitate this process through emotional, experiential, spiritual, and educational support, where together people learn to better meet situational stressors, such as loss, financial struggles, life transitions, and habitual patterns. People begin to see their lives holistically and know their personal power. Together, we work to fully realize the empowerment, enhancement and enchantment that are the true nature of our being.
We are all influenced by our relationships, past and present. Sometimes those relationships bring up issues for us that we need to work through. I am an open and supportive therapist. I will encourage and support you in figuring out what works for you and your relationships. I look forward to working with you. Feel free to call or visit my website.
