I have been a counselor for 12 years. At this point, I only counsel females age 14+. My career has focused on anxiety, depression, self-worth, personal growth and development, adjustment issues, relationship struggles, communication problems, premarital counseling, etc. I have a strong desire to help people walk through their struggles, no matter how deep-rooted or surface level they may be, to help them become their best self.

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.

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.

Not accepting new clients
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.

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.

Maybe you'd like to be living your best life, but instead you're struggling just to get though each day. You've experienced something traumatic- maybe lots of traumatic things. You feel anxious or depressed. You lie awake at night thinking of all the things instead of sleeping peacefully. You feel irritable or angry, or you just can't seem to stop arguing with your spouse or partner. You're tired of trying to just survive each day, and nothing you do seems to be changing that. Life is hard, and we all need help along the way. I'm so glad you're here! I can help you move past surviving so that you can finally start thriving!

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.

Life is a journey, a journey that is most difficult when traveled alone. I strive to walk with clients on their path towards healing and happiness. Working from a client-centered approach, it is essential for me to understand each client as an individual to develop trust and a partnership in therapy. Relationships, trauma, careers and other stressors take a toll on a person's ability to flourish. I believe that each person has potential for growth from those experiences. My goal is to help you regain your footing on your path to living a full and vibrant life.

My ideal client resonates with at least one of the following statements: 1) You are often told how smart you are, but you think you’ve just managed to fool everyone and are worried that one day they’ll see the “real” you. 2) You are a naturally excitable and passionate person, even if you don’t always show it on the outside. 3) People often tell you to “stop thinking about it so much,” but your thoughts don’t stop. You’re not sure you could even imagine a mind where nothing is happening. My clients want to feel like they know themselves, have confidence, and that past negative experiences do not determine who they are.
