I have my doctorate in clinical psychology and am a licensed psychologist who specializes in treatments proven to increase children's positive feelings and ability to cope. I work with children ages 6-17 and have been providing therapy for the past 12 years. Some areas of treatment interest are anxiety, phobias, trauma, and adjustment issues (such as grief, divorce, food allergies). I have a certified therapy dog named Willow. If clients do not want Willow in session, then she is not a part of therapy. Willow is an mini Aussiedoodle, which means she has minimal shedding and is more allergy-friendly.

**Currently Accepting New Clients** Mental health is important now more than ever as increased solitude and stress can only heighten symptoms that are already plaguing individuals, couples, and families. It is increasingly important to take the steps necessary to maintain that health through seeking a trusting and empathetic source of support and connection.

Are you feeling stuck, lost, or frustrated in your life? Sometimes it can be helpful to have a new perspective on the issues you're facing. I believe that every person coming through my door is the expert of their own life; you have the tools you need, you just need help uncovering them! I want to work collaboratively with you to understand what has gotten you to this point and help you gain clarity about your strengths and struggles in order to find a different way to understand, cope, or change what is holding you back. Counseling is not a one-size-fits-all process and I enjoy helping you find solutions to improve your life.

Life is full of ups and down. The ups are great, and at times, the downs can leave you feeling stuck. Sometimes people need someone to help them sort out the chaos, or just be a non-judgmental, listening ear. I believe all people are naturally good, performing their best when they feel their best.

Sometimes, as we go through difficult times, we can each benefit from having someone to walk alongside… to encourage us, to help us navigate barriers and challenges, and to avoid pitfalls. This is my goal as therapist: to walk alongside my clients as they work through challenges, to offer support and guidance, and to help clients find the solutions which lie within themselves. I believe that those who have experienced difficulty can take what they’ve learned, come alongside others walking through difficult challenges, and help them find hope and maybe even joy in the midst of their circumstances.

No one should move through life, silently experiencing emotional distress with little to no sense of hope, yet so many individuals do. Whether it be a result of biology and/or experience, a person’s thoughts and emotions can greatly shape their reality- leaving them to struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel. By reconnecting with their values and seeing one's purpose in life, a person can begin to break free from the hold that uncomfortable thoughts and emotions can have on them. While involvement in therapy entails a great deal of vulnerability, it can also be an important step toward desired growth.

"Everyone, no matter their situation, has infinite potential and possibility 100% of the time." This quote describes my viewpoint of individuals considering therapy. I believe that anyone, despite previous trauma or current life challenges can work to achieve a sense of well-being. Further, I believe that a series of small steps can produce big results. If you are that person who feels depressed, anxious, angry or a general sense of distress, you are also a person that can benefit from the compassionate support offered by a therapist willing to work collaboratively with you to achieve your mental health goals.

My accepting approach is secured in the notion that we all deserve to be welcomed just as we are, including the problems and struggles we bear. Even if our problems have no straightforward answers, we can learn to live with and through them when we are better connected to ourselves and others. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I aspire to enable this connection. My training is rooted in Systems Theory, which views individuals, couples, and families through their relationship network. I take care to recognize how family of origin, cultural, and contextual factors inform our habits, perceptions, and sense of well-being.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. 52402 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in 52402.
