I am a philosophical counselor who has been in private practice for over 23 years. I do not diagnose mental illnesses, nor do I prescribe medication. What I can do is help you with a wide range of issues that we all deal with: relationships, jobs, moral dilemmas, personal identity, love, difficult choices, transitions, addictions, self-care, spiritual/metaphysical questions, questions surrounding the exigencies of everyday living. A conversation is a good way to help you develop your own voice, your own inner resolve and sense of self. The 2,500 history of philosophy can provide invaluable insights as you journey through life.

My general approach with working with clients for over 17 years is highly individualized, relational and strengthen based. I believe most clients simply need an environment to communicate, process feelings and gain insight in order to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I offer individual therapy for adolescents, adults and family therapy. My passion has always been treating eating disorders and the underlying causes such as depression and anxiety. Another clinical passion and area of focus has been assisting women and mothers with identity development and navigating life transitions.

I have worked extensively with children, teens, adults, and families dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression , stress, self-harm, suicidal ideation, trauma, parenting issues, relationship problems, and more.
I often say, counseling can be a bit like cleaning out a closet. You have to take things out, go through and organize them, and then put them back where they need to go. In a similar fashion, counseling can be messy, but with time and hard work, can lead to healthier, more enjoyable living. Throughout this life, we all have our individual struggles and hardships, but we weren't meant to carry them alone. No matter who you are or what you've been through, there is hope. In our sessions together, I strive to come alongside you in the pursuit of that hope and restorative healing.

Is a history of family-based trauma interfering with the new life you’ve created for yourself as an adult? Do you feel burdened by symptoms of depression , anxiety, and dissociation that just won’t go away? We all carry wounds from our family of origin. But adult children of dysfunctional, abusive, and neglectful families carry especially heavy burdens that can affect relationships and functioning in adulthood. With courage and effort, the harms of the past don’t have to determine your future. Sadness, worry, anger… these don’t have to be your whole life. We can release the pain of the past that is causing you harm in the present.

If you struggle with, depression , anxiety, frustration, or anger issues. If you find yourself a victim of your circumstances, and you want to give up please don't! Do you believe nothing can change for you? Stop that thinking, because that's a lie! Life is a journey. If you have given up today is the day you restart your journey. Health in any form is not a destination because no one can be perfected in the natural. However, you can become comfortable and satisfied with the journey you are on and learn skills to propel yourself forward.

My specialty is Grief, Depression , Anxiety, Trauma, First Responders and Sports/School/Job Performance.
I have a passion to assist you in overcoming adversity and facing your mental health concerns. Empathy, open-mindedness, and communication are my core values. My path to counseling began very young through my own personal experience with loss of life, which lead me to the path to helping others. I understand that missing our loved ones and being depressed is normal, and the key to grieving is to find a way to form a new relationship with the one we lost. In addition, through my collegiate student-athlete experience I understand the delicate balance of being a student-athlete, including the pressures that come along with it.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
