Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MA, Ed S, LCMHC
Depression, anxiety, or trauma can stop you from enjoying your day-to-day life! It is not easy dealing with all the thoughts and emotions that are always stirred up. My hope is that together we can work to find balance and peace in your life. We cannot change the past but we can change how we think, cope and manage it today! Many struggle alone unable to truly move forward and find that freedom of internal happiness. Give me a call and together we can find your happy place!
We are each designed uniquely. Deep down, at the core of our being, we all have a longing for wholeness. The way we experience this basic desire in our day-to-day lives may differ. Maybe it’s a sense of belonging when we experience significance with someone or are accepted. Maybe it is a hollow feeling of disconnection or loneliness, or perhaps it is a compulsion to ease pain in an unhealthy way. Whatever the case, the desire for wholeness is basic to our design and the human experience.

I hope that this message found you ready to let go of the patterns that ail you and prepared to embrace something new. You do not have to suffer not one day longer, we can navigate it together and I can be with you sitting in your closet or in sweat pants petting your dog healing. If you are feeling stuck, uncertain of how or if therapy can even help, like the last man standing, judged or alienated, this is your place to be celebrated and accepted for all of who you are. A good therapy session realigns your inner compass and enhances the things that make you EXTRAordinary. Lets connect, big personality, and complex trauma welcomed.
My ideal client is anyone who is in distress. I was struck recently by the assertion that all manner of psychological disturbance has its roots in trauma. With that in mind, their issues condense to navigating their life challenges in a relaxed body with intentions focused on where they would like to be, rather than where they are.
Hey There! I am a goal oriented counselor and love working with clients who are ready to for change in their lives. Sometimes reaching goals can take a few sessions and a couple of years- there is no wrong way to heal. I am a strong believer in self love, compassion, and encouraging clients to seek fun in their lives. My ultimate goal in my client's healing journey is they get to the other side of their healing and find meaning in their struggle.
(Counseling & Life Coaching Services) Instead of being in control of your life do you find yourself at an impasse? Do your thoughts race to the negative and sometimes block you from the happiness and joy you would like to experience in your day to day life?

Are you struggling to find your way in this world and to cope with the pressure you see yourself experiencing? If so, I would love to help by offering a safe/non-judgmental opportunity for a positive and productive re-set of your life.

My specialties are post traumatic stress issues, chronic pain, and enhancing sports performance. I work primarily with adults. My past experience as a world ranked professional tennis player gives me insight to work with high school, collegiate and professional athletes. I work from a depth model, which encourages self-exploration in service of healing. The exploration helps clients become conscious of long standing coping mechanisms that may no longer be as valuable as they once were. Learning what you do that blocks happiness empowers you to make choices that lead to a satisfying life.

Another day of arguments, misunderstandings, and frustration. Feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated. It feels like you are just going through the motions in your marriage and not finding true fulfillment. You are finding that your time at work is more enjoyable than your time at home. These experiences lead you to ask yourself questions like, “Do I still want this relationship? Did I choose the wrong person?” Just thinking about spending the rest of your life in a horrible or mediocre marriage makes you sick to your stomach and causes dread. All you want is to feel loved, heard, and appreciated.

We all long for connection & belonging, & positive relationships play an essential role in helping us live happy, fulfilling lives. But old wounds and communication styles often keep us from finding satisfaction in our current relationships, leaving us feeling stuck & disillusioned. Life also has a way of pulling the rug from under our feet at times and we find ourselves feeling lost, broken, & questioning how we reached this point in our story.
Counseling is a collaborative process where I strive to create a safe and open environment for you to share your experiences. Areas that can be addressed through counseling include, but are not limited to grief and loss, depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences, life transitions, interpersonal conflicts, and problems with self-confidence. As we work together through the therapeutic process, we create and work toward goals that you want to achieve. We will adjust these goals to ensure that your needs are met quickly, so that you can get back to the best version of yourself.
Humanity thrives through relationships, yet these same relationships often spawn challenges creating various levels and types of mental distress. Mental distress leads to second guessing, criticism of self and others, even hopelessness. As a result, gaining a guide to support personal navigation through the situational dynamics are desired in order to gain insight and skills to be confident in steps forward to a better life.
