So many people suffer needlessly because of childhood or other trauma, dysfunctional family and personal relationships, or negative coping skills. I know how hard life can be and I can help you identify areas you’d like to improve, making your life happier and more calm using research-proven psychological techniques and treatments, including EMDR. Mental health improvements impact every area of life, providing healthy coping and problem-solving. Everyone wants to feel their best but so often we overlook our internal life, focusing instead on appearance or fitness, which are also important. Psychotherapy is an investment in yourself.

My clients are seeking relief from their trauma, dysfunctional relationships, shame, addictions, compulsive sexual behavior, disordered eating, grief, and codependency. Typically my clients are over functioning in many areas but cannot pinpoint why they struggle in relationship with others or feel chronically unhappy. Many of my clients identify as Adult Children of Alcoholic and Dysfunctional families or have addiction in their family system.

My main approach to therapy is utilizing Internal Family Systems-informed practices, Inner Child Work, ACT, person-centered counseling, and strengths-based therapy, as well as CBT, DBT, narrative counseling, etc.
Have you been holding onto a burden since you were a child or a young adult? Are you ready to grow into the person you want to be and utilize the skills needed to cope with life’s difficulties? Do you want a counselor to see you for who you really are and give you a safe space to work through any concerns you bring to counseling? As a genderfluid counselor, I can help you onto the path to true healing whether that be from PTSD, C-PTSD, and trauma-related concerns, dissociation, LGBTQ+ issues, anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, etc.

Anxiety, stress, and sadness are a normal part of life, but when these feelings start to take over and inhabit multiple area's of life in a profoundly negative way, something needs to change. You're tired of people telling you it will get better, but with no real support of how. You're afraid of expressing these thoughts to your friends or family because of them sticking a label or diagnosis on you, but you really want to talk to someone about it. You're seeing your child exhibit similar emotions and you're not sure how to help him/her. You're worried it's something you've done and are not sure how to grow or change.

I support my clients in individual, couple's, family , intensive, and group therapy.
It’s okay to ask for what you need. This is something I need to remind myself of on a daily basis. So many of us focus intently on making sure everyone else is taken care of and we completely abandon ourselves and ignore our own needs. This leaves us feeling exhausted, depleted, and quite frankly, resentful because we think to ourselves “why isn’t anyone taking care of me?” I teach my clients what a healthy relationship looks like because if this wasn’t modeled to you at some point throughout your life, no one can expect you to know what it means.

People come to counseling because they want to change their personal or family situation, solve a particular problem, or simply bring a healthier balance to their lives. My role as your counselor is to support, encourage and assist you in doing the necessary work to discover, understand, heal and move forward. I use particular concepts and techniques selected from a broad range of therapies. I primarily draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions Focused, Behavior Therapy, Talk Therapy, and Mindfulness. I integrate these and other therapies with Biblical principles and a Christian worldview.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
