As a therapist on staff at Synergy Executive, an RTC for men, I specialize in treating adults who are struggling with addiction. My therapeutic approach is rooted in respect for the individuality of each client and a true sense of empathy for the emotional pain that often underlies substance abuse. While fostering an atmosphere of acceptance, free of moral judgment, I attempt to meet my clients "where they're at" in terms of their degree of motivation for change. Despite the emotional and social chaos that often inhabits my clients' lives, I believe strongly in each individual's capacity for regaining stability and finding meaning.

Your heart is pounding. Thoughts are racing through your mind. You can't seem to catch your breath. "Am I having a heart attack?" "What's wrong with me?" "Should I call an ambulance?" If you've experienced these symptoms, you know how truly frightening they can be. Maybe you have ended up in the emergency room, just to be told that there is nothing physically wrong with you? Maybe you find yourself cancelling plans at the last minute. You're wanting to get out, have fun, and live your best life, but something keeps holding you back, telling you that it's not safe to do so. This is anxiety, taking hold and stifling you!

I believe in letting each client’s unique needs, desires, and strengths guide the therapeutic process. Therapy can be a safe place to work through life’s major losses, transitions, and other difficult issues you may be facing. Whether the concern is relationships, trauma, domestic violence, substance abuse, behavioral, cognitive, or emotional challenges, I will help facilitate strategies/ insights that foster positive growth and change. In therapy sessions I work to create a supportive, caring, and non-judgmental environment in which you or your loved one are able to express and explore the presenting issues in comprehensive manner.

My ideal client is one who is aware that they need to do something different but aren't quite sure what the next step is. This could be a life transition from adolescence to adulthood, or a couple who struggles with communication. It could be more intense like a couple who is in the middle of despair or broken trust, or an individual or child who has experienced something traumatic that has changed their whole world. All these individuals are looking for ways to regain their life and become who they believe themselves to be.

Finding "Calm in Chaos" is an overarching theme in my counseling practice, my court appointed high conflict co-parenting sessions, expert witness testimony in family, civil, and federal court cases, as well as in my executive and life coaching practice. Conflict is prevalent today in our personal and professional lives. With so much uncertainty I found it imperative to develop a 'Mental Health Urgent Care' counseling model. In a quest to immediately address unexpected trauma, I offer sessions three days per week rooted in a medical triage model. This permits those with critical needs to not have to wait months for a session.

Everyone is unique, and I embrace that uniqueness by tailoring therapy to each client. I provide therapy within a safe and judgement-free environment. As a Brainspotting (BSP) therapist, I specialize in treating emotional trauma. Trauma is especially personal, and its resulting fear, anger, stress, and depression can often be severe.

Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC

My ideal client to work with is one who comes ready to look at the why behind the what, going deeper to understand the roots that cause one to act and think the way they do. The purpose and goal in being curious about the roots is to heal from the wounds and deep-rooted beliefs about ourselves and the world that we have picked up along our own journey in life. The benefit of this work is to live more freely in the Truth of who we were created to be, not allowing fear and past wounds to control one’s life. This growth can equip and lead to more safe, connected, and healthy relationships with ourselves and our loved ones.

Being a human is hard sometimes; especially if we were not taught the skills needed to successfully navigate through life. Many people have not been excused from experiencing life issues, and partnering in therapy can be a great way to explore life moments in a safe and confidential manner. I specialize in EMDR, a form of therapy that helps reduce emotional intensities brought about from unprocessed past experiences. I also utilize DBT, a skills-based form of therapy that teaches mindfulness, skills to help regulate emotions, relationship skills, and strategies to tolerate distressing situations.
