Life is full of many ups, downs, and in-betweens. It is challenging and even devastating. If you are in a place in your life that is difficult, counseling can be helpful. A key part of counseling is the therapeutic relationship established between client and therapist. I will give you a safe space where you can come as you are, without judgement, to feel seen and heard. I believe in slowing down and looking at the emotions we hold. Our emotions are important in guiding us in life with our belief systems.

We often tell ourselves, "I should be able to handle this." Persistence has served us in the past as we have built our careers, but sometimes our self-reliance becomes a burden as we find ourselves suffering in isolation. We don't think of asking for help until things become desperate. We may find we are avoiding our problems by using chemical substances or doom-scrolling Facebook. We want to feel good about work again, we want our relationships to bring us joy again. But we also may have stopped hoping things could get better, except on occasion when things may seem too much to bear and we privately dare to hope.

My ideal client is an adult, couple, or family that has experienced loss or trauma and wants to feel connected to themselves, those they love, and their community again. The individual/s may be experiencing extreme anxiety, irritability, or depression and have been trying to keep picking themselves up, but are tired and concerned about what their future holds. They often find themselves using a variety of means to numb such as eating, substance use, gambling, pornography, sex, video games, etc. They experience emptiness and feel that they really have no sense of who they are or what they want and often feel alone and disconnected.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.
