I work with individuals and couples.

My specialties in therapy include trauma, anxiety and depression. It can be very difficult at times to know how to manage or deal with challenges in our lives. I believe every person has an inner strength that allows them to face life issues and learn new ways to accept or change these challenges. This work is completely collaborative from setting goals to hearing your feedback about progress and other possible treatments to use. I will assist you in finding healthier ways of thinking and actions to deal with difficulties. The first step to take is often the hardest but may be one of the important and meaningful step you make.

I work primarily with adults who are seeking to get back to their true selves, who they were before society taught them to be something else. This manifests in multiple ways including codependency and people pleasing, depression, anxiety, substance use, legal problems, and a sense of meaninglessness in life.

Feelings and emotions, ugh. They can make or break our day sometimes. It’s ok, let’s talk about it. Life is hard, but you do not have to do it alone. Everyday burdens can feel unbearable or too hard to manage on your own. It takes alot of courage to take the first step and ask for help. You are searching for a therapist because you know something has to change, you want to feel better, you need to overcome things in your life that have held you back. There is no better time than today to make yourself a priority, grow, and become your best self. My goal is to meet you wherever you are and help you achieve the life you want.

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

I work primarily with women who desire to heal from past experiences or to address current struggles. Holding space for your pain and burdens in a person-centered centered approach, I tailor the use of interventions and techniques to your specific needs. You are unique - so is your journey - therefore your therapy experience should be too! As a Christian, I often integrate faith into therapy, however, I am a compassionate listener and respectful of whatever your personal worldview may be.

You're overwhelmed, exhausted and feel you've got nothing left to give. Yet, you persist. You shove your anxiety, depression and trauma away, buried deep inside the back of the closet until its closet is bursting at the seams. Why? Because at your core, lies a helper. It's so easy to prioritize everyone else in your life. But you've reached the breaking point. You used to be the rock for others. It's difficult to let others support you. In spite of all the worries, and doubts, you're here. You're willing to dig in and do the work of healing. You realize if you want to keep helping others, it's time to prioritize your needs.

I am the right counselor for you if you are doing everything you can to achieve, follow the rules, and do well...yet you do not feel good enough, seen, or valued.

A lot of resentment can come with aging, whether you yourself are caregiving or you are experiencing changes as you age. It can leave caregivers and seniors feeling stuck without a solution for a way forward to enjoy your life in the midst of hardship or challenges that you are facing with getting older.

As a parent, nothing is more painful than watching your child/teen suffer. You'd give anything to take away their pain. Recently, you've noticed some red flags. Your child's been more disconnected, anxious, and depressed. They've been more withdrawn from friends and family. You've tried everything to get through to them but nothing has worked. Your worried they might be considering self-harming behaviors. Something has to change. As school approaches, you want to ensure they are prepared. I'm here to help your child reduce their symptoms, improve their mood, connect with friends/family and thrive in school!

What type of Columbia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
