If you are an adult or teenager struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, trauma issues, self-esteem, or setting boundaries, I would love to help you. Couples who are struggling with relationship issues are also welcome as I have a passion and experience in marital/couples therapy and helping relationships succeed. I have also been trained in EMDR which assists clients in rapid reduction of trauma-related symptoms resulting in overall healing.

I enjoy working with children and adults, meeting with individuals, couples and families. Prior to joining the team at Synergy Counseling Center, I worked for a Community Health Center and an Indian Health Services Center in Alaska working across the lifespan. I approach therapy from an attachment-focused lens and believe we find healing through an integrated, wholistic approach to therapy.

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.

My clients are successful, highly-motivated professionals who find that certain areas of life are becoming unmanageable. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT®) specializing in sex/porn addictions, partners of sex addicts, multiple addictions, trauma, abuse, and PTSD. I trained under Patrick Carnes at the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). Under Dan Allender I earned an advanced counseling certificate in trauma-focused narrative therapy. Addiction, abuse and trauma are viewed as symptoms rather than defining characteristics. I seek an approach to recovery that embraces positive, proactive, sustainable change.

I have worked with a wide array of clients, especially in my past career in wilderness therapy. I have walked therapeutic, and literal, paths with people from all walks of life and with concerns ranging from depression and anxiety to personality disorders and trauma survivors. My ideal client is one that shows up physically, mentally, and emotionally for themselves. Therapy can be hard as facing ourselves can be a daunting task, I'm here to journey with you.

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.

The opposite of traumatized isn't content. The opposite of addicted isn't sober. The opposite of depressed isn't happy. I believe that the opposite of all emotional unrest is connection. Through connecting in a meaningful way to me as your therapist, we will walk a path toward making and taking full advantage of meaningful connections in your life. I work primarily with survivors of trauma who struggle to figure out why things seem more difficult for them than for those around them. Even when clients don't think the trauma is impacting them, we work together to find peace.

Carl Rogers, the father of Person-centered therapy, once stated, "The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." I love to work with those people who have decided they are tired of "being tired" and have intention to make positive changes in their life. Whether it be dealing with anxiety, depression, past traumas or current stresses, my passion is to provide counsel, encouragement and empower people toward wellness.

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 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.

Have you felt guilt or shame because life was more challenging than you expected it would be post-adoption? Have relationships been a struggle? Does someone acting "off" around you fill you with worry? Attachment issues can be a common struggle for those who have been involved in foster care/adoption. As a fellow adoptee, I too, know the confusion, pain, and feelings a lack of identity and attachment wounds can bring to this family dynamic. Therapy can provide a neutral space to process through those emotions. You can learn skills to confidently handle what life throws at you and take time to heal through the hurt in a healthy way.

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.
