There are so many reasons people choose to see a counselor; trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, relationship problems or situational stress for example. Sometimes, you feel that you can work through it alone. However, another perspective and a place to talk in a comfortable and safe environment is the most beneficial for change to occur. You can get your life on track and I can help! I will help you in developing realistic goals and the support and tools to reach those goals. I have also added a certification to assist First Responders to cope with the challenges of these roles with someone who understands them and their jobs.

The decision to seek therapy involves more than a willingness to grow - It also requires the ability to develop a healthy therapeutic relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional acceptance. Creating a healthy and supportive relationship allows the client to discover more about themselves and creates an environment for change.
Circumstances can overwhelm, exhaust and leave you feeling drained. Sometimes, you even question what the meaning of your life is. Other times, you may feel emotionally depleted giving of yourself to others. If you are suffering with anxiety, depressed moods, self-esteem or confidence issues, or perhaps all of the above, know you don’t have to suffer in silence.

Is your heart always racing? Are you suffering from headaches, belly aches, tension in your back or neck? Do you lack patience with your kids, partner, colleagues, friends? Let's be real, life is hard. When we become overwhelmed with daily stressors, chronic stress, or trauma our body is impacted. Sometimes we need someone who isn't related to us and has no judgments to talk to. Maybe you are facing a big life change, maybe an event is constantly replaying in your mind, maybe the daily stressors are adding up. There is hope!
My client is likely in crisis, is in severe emotional pain or is facing a dilemma. This person is needing guidance, emotional support and a safe place to explore their struggles. My client wants to learn more about himself or herself and seeks to travel along their own journey and, along the way, discover his/her own strengths and inner resources. People learn more by discovering something themselves (internally) than by someone telling him what he or she should do (externally).
At times life can feel challenging and complex. Most likely, if you are reading this, you are going through something which is leading you to want to talk to someone about it. Every day I help people like you find hope, coping skills, purpose and a true sense of well being. I support people as they figure who they are NOW in life and how to take steps to live a quality life that is true to them. Even though it can seem impossible at times, opportunities and possibilities do exist, we just have to discover what can and will work best for you.
When you think of a well-rounded individual, the first thing you may think about is someone who is happy with their life and rolls with whatever life brings them. More often than not these days life has had some pitfalls. There is no reason to be ashamed.
Does life just suck right now? If just one of your problems went away what would that feel like? Would it feel like you could breathe again, maybe all of your anxiety or sadness is gone, or perhaps you are FINALLY getting the help you need from your loved ones. Trying to figure all of this out by yourself can be overwhelming, throw a life event in there such as relationship issues, divorce, or a change in employment, and you can lose your sense of self. I won't let that happen.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. The foundation of my approach to counseling, is that clients have to put in the work when they make the decision to come to therapy; this is how clients will be the most successful in their journey. Therapy can be messy, and the most impactful thing I can do for my clients is hold space, bring things into awareness that they might be missing, and find different, more effective ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
Clients want to go into a session nervous but leave out feeling new...I believe a client deserves to have someone give them necessary tools for life. Help set realistic goals that are achievable. Most of all, allow them to truly just be themselves.

Change is possible and hope always exists. I create a therapeutic environment of acceptance with no judgement so that change and growth can occur. Do you feel like you want an area of your life to be different? Or that something is wrong but you just can't pinpoint the source of the problem - or how to fix it? Taking that first step toward counseling is challenging but the benefits will include increased self-esteem, better relationships, a clearer understanding of self, increased productivity and a greater ability to deal with stress. What is the point of waiting when you can start feeling better today!
