I love working with couples, teens, and adults. A majority of my practice consists of adults and teens who are suffering from depression, anxiety, or other life struggles. I also love working with couples who need to address: communication, healthy fighting skills, affair recovery, or grief due to the loss of a child or loved one.

Maybe you are about to get married. Maybe you are in a relationship and haven't yet considered marriage. Maybe you've been married for 5, 13, even 35 years. Every relationship at some point experiences hardship and difficulty. It takes a lot of effort and energy to make a relationship succeed and stay close connected and intimate. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to find the energy, the will, or the motivation to truly give your heart to your partner. Whenever there is brokenness, my goal is to take those broken parts and bring them back together to make a whole relationship again.

You've arrived in your life, but something is still missing. You've gotten the good job, met that special someone, and maybe you've even started a family. By all accounts, life should feel great, but something is missing. You don't feel excited or passionate about life anymore. Things don't feel bad, but they don't feel truly good either. You feel stuck, complacent, like you're just going through the motions of life, every day exactly the same as the last.

There's no "Just snap out of it!" this time... You've come to realize that you need some help. In the past you have successfully stuffed down troubling memories and emotions but this time it’s different. You're tired of the anxious feelings, disturbing dreams, flashbacks, overwhelm, fatigue(!), and daily mental cloudiness taking its toll. And the impact on your relationships and peace of mind is maddening! Add in well-intentioned friends and family who just seem to make you feel worse - ugh! You're desperate to feel better but don't even know where to begin.

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.

Life is an adventure with rocky roads, potholes, cliffs and smoother roads. You are worthy of taking control of the wheel and I am here to help guide you through the adventure. I adapt my therapeutic style to the needs of my clients by going as quickly or as slow as you need. Some days you may just need an ear and not be able to, or willing to, do anything else. Other days you may be ready and willing to move forward toward your goals. Either is perfectly okay.

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.

I work best with clients who know what it's like to struggle - whether the struggle is emotional, physical, financial, or spiritual in nature. My clients typically want a place where they have the room and safety to work through hard topics without judgment on their character, but also someone who will challenge them and assist them in pushing themselves in their growth. They want these things because they truly desire growth in their lives, and they know they can't achieve it with a "yes man" as their therapeutic partner.

Overwhelmed yet? Finding a therapist you can work with seems to be one of almost infinite choices. Earning my LCSW in 2005 provides you with the understanding I have a few years of experience. That experience has helped develop a non-judgemental, client centered approach in how I do therapy. My ideal client is easy for me to describe: wants help and is able to trust another person! Its that simple. Clients I have had the highest success rates with have been afflicted with anxiety and or depression. The key has seemed to be helping clients identify the source of your affliction and then reducing the emotional distress.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
