Stepping out to ask for help can be incredibly intimidating and uncomfortable. I know how hard it is to ask for help, but the simple fact that you are looking for help makes you a step closer to healing than you were yesterday. Effective therapy is one that is based on a strong therapeutic relationship built on a mutual goal of healthy living. When emotions become overwhelming, we will work together to overcome struggles. You will never have to go through it alone. Whatever the obstacle ahead of us, as your counselor I will be right by your side every step of the way matching you step for step.

Do you feel burnt out, exhausted, or overwhelmed? If so, know that you aren't alone. The process of therapy isn't just “talking about your problems.” It is about building self-awareness, making changes to our thoughts and behaviors, as well as learning and practicing coping skills. Through the process, I help clients learn to cope with stress, manage relationship conflicts, and improve their overall well-being. My ideal client is someone who is motivated, insightful, and open to change. I enjoy working with professionals and those in the helping field.

My goal is to always provide a place of acceptance and safety. I work to empower others to feel a sense of belonging and explore their potential. We are all two sides of the same coin; both strong and vulnerable, confident and insecure, emotional and logical. None of these are more important or valuable than the other, but all are intricate pieces that make up the human experience deserving of a voice and validation.

Life becomes too difficult; you need an objective someone to talk to, listen to your story, and provide encouragement that you can not only survive what you are going through, but work to find purpose and meaning in the midst of the storm. The most important aspect of therapy is the Client-Therapist relationship. Once it is determined that the Client is comfortable with me, then it is a collaborative effort to help facilitate the healing process through the life changes the Client faces. My job is to provide a safe place for change and growth to happen.

I believe every one of my clients has the ability to improve, adapt, create, and express themselves more genuinely. They often come to therapy because they feel stuck. You may be angry, depressed, anxious, in pain, or driven to the point of breaking, but even in the place of suffering there is a spark, the start of becoming a better version of yourself. I want to be with my clients every step of the way, in a relationship that can assist them in becoming who they are, recovering from what weighs on them, redeeming their past and making a bright future.

Life has its challenges and difficult seasons are inevitable for each of us. Pleasure, heartache, contentment, fear, acceptance, rejection, hope and hopelessness. Everything leaves a mark. We can't avoid every season but we can overcome them no matter the circumstance. You can learn how to carry things or let go of them. You can identify your options, grow your courage, and make choices. The beauty of it is that you don't have to do it alone. There is always hope and a way to heal. We can find that light at the end of the tunnel. Remember, "We all have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one." -Tom Hiddleston

None of us come out of childhood without some cuts and bruises. Sometimes physical, but more oftentimes emotional. For many, these emotional wounds are still tender, open, lightly dressed with a bandage, forgotten, or even neglected. So when these emotions get touched we find ourselves reacting in ways that aren’t in line with the kind of person we want to be.

There is no universal blueprint for figuring life out. Despite following the rules, working hard, and even finding some success, life may feel really dull. With that, a sense of emptiness and lack of direction can ebb and flow as we move through our existence. Sometimes, life becomes a lot about going through the motions. And playing in the background is the soundtrack of everyone else’s opinions. You may not even be able to pinpoint what exactly is wrong. Maybe you’re drowning under pressure and expectations. Maybe your stuck living in the past, or frozen by fear of the future. Maybe it's a million different things...

Reaching out for help can be difficult and intimidating. The truth, however, is that we are all human and there comes a time in everyone's life where we need help. Maybe we just need a non-judgmental, open minded, trustworthy person that we can sit down and talk to. Someone that can really listen and help to sort out our feelings and our situation. Someone who can help to make better sense of what is going on and maybe even help to come up with a plan for changing it.

I work with many different challenges, but I specialize in 3 areas: grief and loss therapy, addiction counseling, and narcissistic abuse recovery. These are things not all counselors are trained in. However, grief affects us all and comes in many forms: loss of a loved one, job loss, or breakup/divorce. Some clients that see me are relying on substances to get through and wonder if there’s a better way. Others have felt the pain of a narcissistic parent or partner and may experience low self-worth, feel betrayed, or even question their reality. Pain from these things is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

There's no "just snapping out of it" this time... You've come to realize that you need some help. In the past you have successfully stuffed down troubling memories and emotions but this time it’s different. You're tired of the anxious feelings, disturbing dreams, flashbacks, fatigue(!), and daily mental cloudiness taking its toll, and the impact on your relationships and peace of mind is maddening. Add in well-intentioned friends and family who just seem to make you feel worse - ugh! You're desperate to feel better but don't even know where to begin.

Whether its difficulty navigating a toxic work environment, dealing with a difficult boss, experiencing marriage or relationship problems, or feeling lost and alone you may need to evaluate what your needs or wants are. Your mind and body is telling you something if you are feeling stressed, feeling sad, have problems sleeping, feeling lonely even in a crowd, or getting angry over the littlest thing, its letting you know change needs to happen. We all struggle at times with trying to navigate life and I believe that we all could benefit from support. Reaching out for help is the key to working towards a healthier way of living.

Have you been suffering in silence or struggling with relationships? Know that hope is near. We all have experienced pain that if left untreated, can keep us trapped, inhibiting our ability to enjoy life and genuinely connect with others. There are three main areas that are near and dear to my heart: Children who’ve gone through adverse life experiences, women having difficulty navigating life stages, and victims or survivors of betrayal trauma: emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Know that it will take time to heal, courage to face the reality of your experience, and a steady commitment to your own healing.

I feel every individual has the right to choose his own path. I am here to help clarify issues when a client feels overwhelmed by stress, depression,family issues or work related issues. Our world is so fast paced and we are expected to keep up, so when not if we fall short it effects other aspects of our basic functionality . At times we just need a objective person to provide supportive feedback.

Healthy boundaries, relationships and communication can be really hard. Feelings of doubt, anxiety and /or depression can influence our behaviors, emotions and mood. If these or other areas of concern are preventing you from reaching your full potential, counseling can be an empowering experience. We open our lives and our hearts to strangers in counseling. It’s natural to want to find a person whom you can relate to and trust before beginning this journey. I look forward to partnering with you during your time of discovery. As an EMDR practioner we can discuss if this integrated approach is right for you.

What type of Springfield mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Springfield?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
