It can be difficult to gain the support we need to face life's many challenges. Many husbands and fathers are lonely, stressed, or confused about their relationships. The role of mother caring for children or daughter for an elderly parent can feel relentless. Perhaps you have pain you've pushed away for many years making you feel trapped or lost. Counseling can provide the opportunity to safely discuss and express the things we do not or cannot share in our day to day lives. I utilize an interpersonal and solutions focused approach to help unpack your struggles, process your pain, and build practical strategies to move forward.

My passion lies in working with adults, adolescents, and families. My experience has been working on a variety of issues including trauma, mood d/o, anxiety, self-exploration and understanding how our thinking affects our feelings and behavior. I enjoy assisting patients with identifying messages taken from life experiences that drive our choices and behavior in order to give each individual a better understanding of self. It is this understanding that brings awareness of habituated behavior patterns, effective communication skills and balance in our daily lives. Skills that are useful to patients outside of the therapeutic setting.

Therapy is a collaboration where we discover creative solutions to your problems, find strong clarity, and discover your truth and powerful, inner voice. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and the ability we all have to rise above adversity and intentionally craft our lives. My approach is eclectic and I use solution-focused, evidence-based methods in addition to traditional modalities such as mindfulness and mind/body techniques. Therapy isn't about finding out what is "wrong" with you. At the heart of it, it is about learning, understanding, and discovering the beauty and courage that has been inside all along.

Everyone we encounter in our lives plays a part in our story. Each experience leads to decisions that develop who we are. Sometimes we come to an encounter or experience that we aren't sure how to interpret, or work through. When we experience mental health symptoms or life stress that impairs our functioning, it is important to seek, learn, and utilize skills to get back to functioning that helps us achieve our goals.

I am a seasoned clinician who, for over 35 years, has empowered clients to lead more meaningful and productive lives. If you suffer from anxiety, trauma, or depression, or if you find interpersonal relationships to be challenging and unsatisfying, talking with an experienced psychotherapist can drastically improve the quality of your life. Therapy is an opportunity to gain insight into the workings of your mind, to better understand how your internal reality shapes your external one (and vice versa). If some introspection has opened you to the possibility of therapy, the chances are already very good that you would benefit from it.

Life throws so much at us. Often our natural instinct is to cling to the happy times and push away pain and suffering. However, learning to accept difficult situations and accept change is possible through guidance and feedback. Learning to act effectively to accept change and to face the places where we need to improve is an act of courage that does not appear overnight. I believe in evidence-based and practical strategies to help my clients improve their lives and emotional well-being. I believe that change is not only possible but inevitable.

Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

Do you find yourself doing the same thing, over and over, in an attempt to make changes in your life? Do you often feel frustrated and disappointed because things just don't change despite your best efforts? You can make changes in your life; however, it is essential that you have the support and the tools to make that happen. Oftentimes, people have resistance to change and put up obstacles in their path which they are unable to recognize. It takes a great deal of strength to ask for help and to allow someone to help you.

Do you ever feel like it is you against the world? Or wonder if there is anyone “in your corner”? This world can throw all sorts of difficulties our way and sometimes it is helpful to know you are not alone in the fight. Those difficulties may present with symptoms of depression, anxiety, fear, worthlessness, addiction, trauma, negative thinking, or loss. I understand first-hand how tempting it is to give up the fight, but I also know the joyful victory that comes with healing and freedom. I am holding hope for you even if, right now, you are not able to hope for yourself. I believe there is abundant life for YOU!
