*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Struggling within yourself, or in relationship to a partner, child, friend, or family member can leave you exhausted. Finding answers to questions about what to do next, who to trust, and how to manage the resulting anger, sadness, guilt, or loneliness consumes your energy. You wonder if anyone truly understands and can help you make sense of it so you can build a life you love. Helping people feel at ease to make concrete, powerful change is my strength. I can help you find your way through the struggle toward resolution and relief while finding your stronger, more confident self.

You are unique and special just like everyone else. This phrase resonates with me. I have had the privilege of experiencing life's good, bad and ugly. When life’s path and rhythm are suddenly thwarted, we may feel powerless, vulnerable, distrustful and out of control. We have little to no idea how to maneuver our life’s steering wheel to get ‘back on track.’ This could lead to worsening or ‘stuck’ conditions reinforcing the negative thoughts and feelings at hand. Like you, all of us experience these waves at several points throughout our lives. My own healing was through insight, guidance and support while engaged in counseling.

You’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or lost. You’re stressed and dissatisfied in your relationships but are struggling to pinpoint why or how to change the dynamic. You’ve often felt like you don’t really belong with your friends, family, peers or colleagues. Maybe you’ve avoided therapy in the past because a part of you secretly (or not so secretly!) feels that you “should” be able to figure this out on your own. You’ve exhausted yourself trying other methods that have left you struggling with chronic worry, dark moods, and the painful sensation that “something is wrong with me.”

My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

For 30 years I've provided a listening ear to my clients. Sometimes, that's all one needs. Other times, we may need a little more direction, a new insight, a gentle push. I strive to recognize and respect the uniqueness of each individual. If you have a child with ADHD or other behavioral or adjustment issues, are an adult having relationship issues, depression or anxiety, or are someone struggling with the pain and confusion of addiction, my experience has prepared me to help you.

After that horrific humiliating work experience, you constantly feel so misunderstood, left behind, and stupid at work, no matter how affirming your current boss and coworkers’ intentions are. You know you have potential, but you are doubting it will ever be played out, much less recognized due to the constant blockage of self-doubt. You’ve almost given up on ever getting enough sleep or family time, much less yoga class or lunch with friends, for worrying so much about being suddenly busted for another unintended mess up at work.

Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and trauma can be overwhelming. It’s incredibly uncomfortable to feel your heart and mind race or to have shortness of breath. You worry about when a panic attack will happen again and the worry makes matters even worse. You just want to slow down your mind and quit thinking about the what's happened. You feel alone and think "This will never end". Your relationships may be suffering as you lie in bed dwelling on the past or worrying about the future and you want to be able to sleep all night. You've tried everything to control the thoughts and feelings but can't.

I enjoy working with people to identify new ways to cope with the challenges life brings to us. I encourage bringing your strengths as coping tools while joining in problem solving or problem identification. Expressive arts, dream work, and Sandplay are also ways that I work with those who prefer modalities other than talk therapy.

What type of Waynesville 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Waynesville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
