Thank you for your interest. The choice to pick a therapist is a personal one. I became a therapist as a second career after about 10 years in the world of operations and logistics. As the daughter of two engineers, I see individuals as they are navigating systems. We would fit well if you believe in the power of the interaction, you are trying to find your voice and you are looking to managing the stress of decisions and transitions creatively and solution focused. Wellness is accomplished through looking at the whole person- what impacts you emotionally, physically and socially. Often, my approach clicks best with teens or adults.

Do you feel like you are strapped on a roller coaster of anxiety and depression and can't get off the ride? We can feel out of control because of life changes, relationships, and significant events. We can become stuck in our own unhealthy thoughts, emotions, actions, and responses. Sometimes we hyper-focus on relationships and fixing other people. Or we may develop unhealthy patterns when using things outside of ourselves to experience immediate relief and help us cope. This may include alcohol, marijuana, pills, food, porn, exercise, gaming, social media, shopping, and gambling.

Emotional pain is an inescapable part of being human. At times, it is overwhelming and impacts all aspects of our lives. At others, it is manageable but apparent. When pain prevents us from experiencing fulfillment and satisfaction, it can be helpful to seek out support. Deciding to start therapy and taking steps to do so is intimidating to many of us, but overcoming that fear is an important part of making changes that can lead to a more meaningful life. Therapy enriches us by providing space to be heard and understood, teaching us tools to help us succeed, and introducing new perspectives.

I believe that each and every individual is capable of self-direction and growth. In counseling, I strive for a therapeutic relationship with each client that is facilitative to those ends. During sessions, I strive to maintain an environment containing unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness. My therapeutic style is primarily based on an eclectic style, however, I am a Christian therapist but will never push my beliefs on to you.

I have a background in crisis services. I have treated numerous clients, both women and men, with a history of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. For as long as I can remember I have been told that I help others feel  better about themselves or difficult situations in their lives. This has not been through offering some "grand solution" to their problems but through a willingness to listen and offer kindness to people in need at anytime. I strive to bring this quality into the way I practice counseling. I truly see helping others as a privilege and my being in the counseling field as a calling from God.
