Welcome. Are you experiencing difficulties with relationships, children, spirituality, sex, or work? It often happens that many of us need a little help now and then. In my years of practice, I've seen how depression and anxiety can affect people's lives and can cause a great deal of guilt and frustration. Life is a journey, both joyous and painful. I believe that no one purposely tries to mess up their life, however, once caught up in our own situations we often cannot see the "forest for the trees", making it difficult to see things any differently during stressfull times.

Is your child struggling from trauma or big emotions? Are they scared, anxious, or sad? Is your child having behavioral issues and always seeming to get into trouble at home or school? Do you find there's a disconnect in the communication between you and your child/teen? I Can Help! As a child therapist, I walk alongside your child in their journey and help them to process, heal and grow from traumatic and difficult life situations. I believe that children are highly resilient and when given a safe, non-judgmental, accepting environment and using their language of play, big changes can take place.

*Not currently accepting new patients, thank you* My background is in working with children and teens for the past ten years. However, I have found over the last few years that I love working with adults as well! My ideal client is one that seeks to have an understanding of self and learn new ways to adapt to the world given whatever barrier may currently be in place. I find that many clients enjoy the safe, nonjudgmental environment that I provide. While I do provide insights as they come up and coping skills, I do not tell clients "what to do."

I provide trauma-informed therapy in a warm and engaging way. Above all, my goal is to create a space where you feel safe and heard. I invite you to show up just as you are...express your real un-filtered thoughts & feelings. I work with folks who go between feeling incredibly tense or numb. People who are exhausted from masking loneliness and despair. People who are ready for a deeper understanding of how certain experiences impacted their life. People searching for effective strategies and support as they journey towards healing. Tired of saying, "I'm fine" when you're really not? Reach out today. Let's get started.

There are times when we all experience struggles. It doesn't matter if you are kiddo, teen, young adult, midlife adult, or older adult we can all benefit from empathy and support during these times. It is important to understand during these periods you are not alone. Whether coping with long term mental/behavioral health illnesses, skill development or more short term situational based problems. Having an objective, compassionate individual to gain professional support from is a significant life line.

What type of Sanford 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Sanford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
