I use CBT and Narrative Therapy to explore and correct underlying issues.
I believe counseling is a partnership in which we work together in developing and implementing a plan to reach the clients treatment goals. Each client is unique and different, and I adjust according to the clients needs. I work well with clients who are ready to do the work to heal and grow. The client and I are active throughout the counseling process. I have found that this process is a journey towards healing and thriving in all areas of life. Many of my clients have found themselves stuck in life. I help clients find what is keeping them stuck and develop the skills to overcome these barriers so they might heal and grow.

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.

NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.Deep down, you know you are capable of becoming who you want to be, yet you may feel "stuck" or unsure of how to move forward. Perhaps you are overwhelmed, anxious, or dealing with self-doubt. You might be someone who cares deeply about people & is highly perceptive to the feelings of others, but often sacrifice your own needs in the process. It could be that you view yourself as a "people-pleaser" and want to set healthy boundaries. Maybe you are trying to cope with life's demands in the midst of feeling depressed or broken-hearted. Whatever it is you are facing, you are not alone & I am glad you're here.

Healthy sexuality is our objective in sexual addiction. Sex is an integral and balanced part of life experience. Sexual behaviors become problematic when they violate vows and values, are dishonest, harmful to others, put you at risk, diminishes your joy in life, act as a barrier filled with shame, self-contempt, and isolation. Sexual health creates intimacy and closeness, characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. Sexual health can be achieved by sex addicts in recovery. The trauma and addiction model identifies the trauma and internal system that underwrites addiction and does not view problematic behavior as moral failure.

Everything feels hard. Like too much. You’re exhausted, anxious, and emotionally running on empty though you expect yourself to have it all together. As a responsible, empathic, and considerate person, you put major effort into all your roles--work, relationships, etc. But you re-hash conversations and second guess yourself, afraid to make a mistake. Did you get it right and meet the expectations? What if you get it wrong and push someone away? What the hell is “getting it right” anyway? You don't want to disappoint anyone, but the traditions and tools you learned no longer work for you or feel like they’re holding you back.

Depression, anxiety and addiction are often compatriots. They feed off each other and create a sense of hopelessness. Your struggle may be with substances (drugs/food), compulsive acts or obsessive thinking. However, they are often slightly different-shaped pieces to the same puzzle. Additionally, if you experienced trauma in your lifetime, you are even more susceptible to these disorders. Gratefully, there is hope and recovery for them! It is often not easy or quick, but it is doable. "God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless." -- Chester Nimitz, WWII Fleet Admiral.

Children naturally learn by playing. Play therapy builds on this idea, assisting children to be able to address and resolve their own problems. Through play therapy, children learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and how to relate to others in a variety of ways. It's not unusual for children who are experiencing discomfort for it to show up in their behavior. This might look like the child experiencing anxiety, inability to regulate emotions, sadness, anger, lack of social connection, and so forth.

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. Springfield 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 Springfield.
