I specialize in several areas including grief, single- parenting , infant loss (infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and abortion), pre-marriage & marriage, divorce, blended family, parenting , trauma, abuse (of all types), terminal illness, depression, anxiety, and much more.
My life experiences and personal testimony is evidence of God's ability to restore and redeem. My journey in becoming a counselor has given me an understanding for the need to see others through God's perspective, a holistic view in providing care and compassion, while ministering to individuals using various resources and methods. No one person or situation is alike. The uniqueness to your story requires personal insight while allowing the Holy Spirit to heal the inner person. I use biblically based teaching intertwined with psychological tools, to minister to the entire person: mind, body, spirit, soul.

I consider it my personal mission to reduce the divorce rate in the United States, 1 couple at a time. But preventing divorce will only be succesful if, in place of unfulfilling or chronically dysfunctional marriages, couples develop truly thriving marriages & deeply fulfilling relationships. Even in the most hopeless-seeming cases, couples can heal the damage from the past and move forward in a healthier way. Not all marriages can be saved, but when couples do the work to heal the past, their future can be happier, no matter what the outcome for the relationship.

“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds” Laurell K. Hamilton. As a child, my mother told me that "change is the only constant in the world." With change being an ever constant in our lives, why is it so difficult? We all feel the weight of a stressful society, and everybody needs help from time to time. Is your reflection in the mirror unrecognizable? Does change appear impossible? Are you recovering from an accident? Coming out of a bad breakup? Struggling from the disease of addiction? Do you feel frozen or struggling to move forward?

Life can be hard and overwhelming. Do you need help in processing what you have experienced and in developing the skills to help you move forward in your life? I believe connection plays an important role in the healing process. Connection to self and others can be created through the therapeutic relationship and experiencing someone who listens intently, without judgment, offering a reflection of your unexpressed wants and needs. I enjoy working with people who have an interest in their own personal growth, taking a journey, and trying something new.

It takes courage to take the first step to participate in therapy. I begin my work with a focus on relationship building as the therapeutic relationship is essential to a successful therapy experience. I believe it is critical to view clients from a non-judgmental perspective, and recognize that each individual is capable of obtaining a meaningful life. I provide a safe space for clients to address the challenges that prevent them from living the life they desire. My role is to facilitate growth and meaning-making of those experiences that are most relevant to the clients I serve.

**NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME - Working as a licensed counselor for over 30 years has tenderized my heart towards those who want to get "unstuck" from patterns and places we all can find ourselves in. Though I specialize in trauma work and family systems, I work with clients who have anxiety issues, depression, abuse, addictions, sexual trauma, disturbing life events, self concept and life change adjustments. I love what I do and am passionate about walking with people through their pain, shame and fear to a place of hope.

Do you wish that you could reach a goal, but keep finding yourself stopping short? Do you feel like the world is against you? Do you sometimes say I don't recognize myself anymore?" Do you wish that you could explore your own thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgmental setting? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, counseling may be helpful for you. I will take the time to get to know you, your motivations, and your road blocks (because we've all got them). I will help you develop a plan to work around your road blocks (because we cannot control life, but we can control how we react to our experiences).

Anxiety, depression, and stress. We would all love for them to go away, but sometimes anxiety or depression, and stress just stick around for too long and become too intense. While anxiety, depression and stress may never go away completely, having skills to manage them can make all the difference.

My journey of helping individuals and families began as a hospice social worker. I worked closely with individuals and families to provide a "total care" approach while offering guidance through the emotional process of death. Now in private practice, I have worked with many cases and continue to use the "total care" approach with each client. I welcome all individuals and find incorporating your values/beliefs in therapy is supportive of the healing process. As I share with clients, we have to embrace our past, present and future to begin the healing process.

Are you lonely or overwhelmed? Are you struggling as a working mom, or maybe trying to manage as a single parent - juggling children, a job and trying to date? Are you secure in your new blended family? Did you lose your job, move or relocate? These and other issues of transition can cause feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression and impact self esteem.
You are motivated to make lasting changes in your life and want to improve your quality of life, you believe in the mind, body and soul connection, you know the importance of a good relationship between you and your therapist and how vital this relationship is in achieving a desired outcome in therapy. You want to feel better about yourself, have quality relationships, engage in meaningful experiences, free of getting in your own way. You know you can live your best life but just not sure how to get there. (Side Note: I provide supervision for Master's level Social Workers in need of their LCSW ask me about this).

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
