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.

I have worked with mental health, addiction, family systems , and disordered eating for 8 years.
I provide individual, couple’s, family, intensive, and group therapy to adults. 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.

Call for an appointment if you struggle with ADHD, anxiety, chronic illness, surgery preparation, prenatal or postpartum depression, relationship challenges, stress management, life skills, life transitions, insomnia, or want to create a healthier lifestyle. I blend Eastern philosophy with Western psychology in my holistic practice. If you have tried traditional therapy and have not found relief, I'd love the opportunity to help you become the best version of yourself.

I work with couples using the Gottman Method and am also AASECT certified therapist and treat all sexual disorders, both with couples and with individuals. I treat all relationship issues, including affair recovery, out of control sexual behavior and ambiguity about whether or not to stay together. As a sex therapist I treat desire discrepancy within a couple, erectile difficulties and problems with orgasm, along with any other sexual issues. I feel uniquely qualified to help couples as sexual issues are so often a part of a problematic relationship.

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.

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.

Many of my clients look good on the outside, yet feel mildly miserable on the inside. Pain is motivating and when clients are hurting, they call to schedule an appointment. It takes more than intellect to change behavior. Most of my clients are intelligent and know what they "should" do, yet struggle to take healthy action. I work with people (or partners) who struggle with substances and behavioral medicators such as alcohol, porn, overeating and codependency. I treat individuals, couples and families that need help with addiction, mental illness, infidelity or simply feeling stuck. It is a relief to not have to do it alone.

You've experienced a lot of success, but you're feeling discontent. Perhaps your relationship isn't working. You question whether there is something wrong with you. You've tried to change some things, but feel stuck. You're losing hope that change can happen. You're ashamed and wonder why you haven't figured it out. After all, you've managed on your own up to now; even calling your own shots. You want a trusted confidential atmosphere where you can learn to experience lasting joy again...You have a place to go; you can stop waiting.

Do you feel like your emotions are overwhelming your life, your relationships, or keeping you from being who you want to be? As an art therapist, I help clients use creative expression as a powerful tool for self-exploration and understanding. Whether you consider yourself an artist or feel like you can't even draw a stick figure, I believe that art can be an amazing tool for expressing thoughts and feelings that may otherwise be hard to put into words.

There is an old saying: “The more you run from something, the more you run into it.” That is a scenario that can play out time and again for persons struggling with mental health issues. And avoidance is tempting. But the key to experiencing less pain and to living life with more enjoyment is in effectively confronting mental health challenges. This is where an ally is required—an ally trained in helping you find strengths within yourself and in aiding you in developing coping skills.

You feel like you should be happy and fulfilled with the life you've built. You only wish you were as happy on the inside as you look on the outside. Many of my clients are seen as "having it together," however, inside they've grown numb, tired, restless, and sad. They feel stuck in behavior patterns that they can't seem to change. Their relationships have become unsatisfying. The demands of life feel increasingly heavy. They long for something or someone to help them move in a new direction.

Family can be a source of joy and strength but can also be chaotic and overwhelming at times. I know that life transitions and big events can be challenging for individuals and that sometimes having an outside resource to talk to can be helpful. If you are struggling to start a family, dealing with pregnancy/postpartum related mental health concerns, pursuing kinship care/foster care/adoption, or working to overcome a traumatic experience, I would love to connect and see if I can assist you in reaching your goals.

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.

What type of Matthews mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
