I believe that all humans have a resilient spirit which allows them to overcome any obstacle before them. Sometimes we forget who we are or perhaps we never fully knew. Maybe we felt we were never able to be our authentic selves. It's possible we think there's something wrong with us or we're broken. Or is it that we struggle to manage mental health symptoms and we become emotionally deregulated and filled with shame? Maybe you think that you have gone to far and there is no hope for you. You are not alone. I have helped countless people with stories like these and many more. What ever it is that is holding you back, I can help.

When I meet with people, I am told that I am approachable, understanding, and humorous! I know what it's like to be a client and to be asked to pour out my life; therefore, I adapt my therapy sessions to you and allow you to share what you desire! I do what I do to help others as I have been helped, and my goal is to assist you in achieving your goals!! I understand how to incorporate Christianity into your session, though also respect your desire to not include any beliefs whatsoever. I am flexible and understanding.

My aim is to help individuals and couples who are experiencing repetitive, entrenched patterns of problems or symptoms. These problems may appear in the realm of mood (emotions), behavior, or be physically lodged (psychosomatic). Disturbances such as these are often found to have their roots in templates formed earlier in life, but exert force upon present-day perceptions, emotions, cognitions, and interpersonal life. My role is to facilitate an in-depth understanding of the understructure of these mental and emotional constellations (usually out of awareness) which uphold and perpetuate the problems and patterns in need of modification or relief.

I have been in practice for 30 years as a clinical psychologist. I provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients. I use mindfulness techniques for therapy in addition to a compassionate presence. These approaches include mindfulness to resolving situational depression, teaching clients to overcome overwhelming emotional situations, relaxation techniques to quiet your mind and body, and therapy to assist each client to function each day with calmness and clarity. I am a very proactive therapist, allowing individuals to explore their own thoughts, feelings, behavior patterns, and develop an action plan that best suits their personal growth.

Most people are doing the best they can in life with the skills they have available. When life becomes overwhelming, unbearable, or unfulfilling, counseling can help you find & experience the joy & love you desire - even in the face of adversity. Counseling can be helpful when you are ready to make changes in your life and when you desire someone to journey with you to realize your best self. In our work together, we will collaborate to set goals that you want to achieve. For some, this may be a change in how you are thinking and feeling. For others, you might be ready to work to find deeper healing through processing your trauma.

Transition feels like a natural progression throughout life. Much like seasons change from Summer to Fall; we experience the ebb and flow within relationships, dreams, families, and our internal worlds. Maneuvering through changes can be terrifying and sometimes overwhelming. I find through sharing our struggles one can start the process of gaining insight into ourselves and our relationships. It is my belief that most people have an innate need for connection and a natural desire to be seen, heard, and understood. I find patients begin to develop stronger connections and experience more lasting relief through our relationship.
